Healthy Whole Wheat Walnut Brownies
Yes, you read it correct! The words healthy and brownies in the same line! Super cool, right? Struggling with a massive sweet tooth, eating healthy has always been challenging, especially when there are these delicious baked goods continuously staring at me. So, instead of controlling myself (and failing, of course) each time I ate a brownie or a cake and throwing away my weighing scale, I decided it was time to do something serious about it.
These cake-y brownies are the perfect combination of deliciousness and those pair of really hot distressed jeans. They are made with whole wheat flour (atta) and contain no butter and oil. Music to your ears, right? Plus, they have applesauce, which technically counts as eating fruit. Tee Hee!
At just a little over 100 calories, these brownies are a good way of curbing your craving without adding numbers to the weighing scale. Since I am not a fan of honey in baked goods (it is an acquired taste), they do have a little sugar in them but you can easily replace it with ½ cup honey, if you want to make them even healthier.
