Healthy Dessert Option: Brownies

We hope you have all had a wonderful weekend and did what made YOU happy. Hopefully you were able to make time for yourself to squeeze in a great workout, a therapeutic run, or maybe a walk with your pooch... no matter what we hope you got up and got out there! 

A new week is about to begin but that doesn't mean you have to get the "Monday Blues", we have been working on a fun, new recipe; And it's all about DESSERT... YUM.  Brownies are definitely an indulgent dessert and while we aren't saying you should eat the whole pan of these, we are saying we tweaked them to make them just as satisfying but a little more slim.
