Box-mix Brownies the Healthy Way

Submitted by: AJCERRA

Introduction

I *love* brownies, but I don't love the fat and calories that are packed into them. I wanted to find a quick way to make yummy brownies that are healthy--or at least more healthy than the usual box mix! These are fast and simple to make. All you need is a box mix (any kind), eggs, bananas and a little ground flax seed. Bake and enjoy! I *love* brownies, but I don't love the fat and calories that are packed into them.
