Yup, that’s right….NO chocolate! I was never really a fan of brownies because I always found the texture to heavy and moist, it pretty much felt like a chocolate overdose. However this recipe changed my mind, and because of its light and fluffy texture, I can finally say that brownies are a win on my list (checkmark). Plus, what better time to post this than on christmas eve? I know it’s the holidays so please feel free to indulge (I know I will), but if you have a gluten intolerance or you are a super crazy health freak who wouldn’t even bear the thought of cheating on christmas day (shame!) then this recipe would definitely keep your tummy light and happy πŸ™‚ HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!! πŸ˜€
