Healthy brownies

After seeing that picture I posted of healthy sugar free brownies I decided I would try one out. This is a vegan recipe that replaces white flour for wholemeal flour and only has 1/2 cup of sugar which is way less than your average brownies recipe (most have upwards of 2 cups! yikes!) Instead of butter they use apple sauce, talk about genius!
