Double Chocolate Brownies

Double Chocolate Brownies

Double Chocolate…need I say more?

This recipe is a cleaner version of the usual sugar filled brownies that you make or buy.  The thing I love is that these brownies curb that chocolate sweet fix without packing a ton of calories and fats.

These are also a great dessert item to pack into your kids lunches.  Just for kicks, I compared these to the Little Debbie Fudge Brownies that I know are a popular lunch time snack for kids.  Are you ready?
