Brownies (with spinach and carrot)

Submitted by: ANNAHEARTSJOSH1

Introduction

A recipe from Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld. These brownies fool everyone! You won't believe how scrumptious they are (or how good they are for you) until you make them yourself. Just don't serve them warm -- it's not until they're completely cool that the spinach flavor totally disappears. A recipe from Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld. These brownies fool everyone!

    I had no idea what to expect but we were all pleasantly surprised. Even the kids loved these! My 13 year old said they are better than regular brownies. I will definitely be making these again and again. I used the blender to thoroughly mix the dry ingredients into the batter. - 8/2/09

  • Needed a little sweetness, so I put chocolate chips on top while warm. Delightful! Also, I use butter not margarine. - 6/18/11

  • It was so soft and chewy. I let my really picky daughter eat all of her brownie before I told her what was in it. She loved it and is excited about all the healthy stuff that in it. - 8/29/10
