  • The recipe is missing the 2 tablespoons of ground flax seeds. I have also cut the sweetener way down to only 1 cup of syrup. I actually use WHOLE dates now, using this recipe:

  • I had really high hopes for these brownies. Unfortunately the finished product did not live up to my expectations. To begin with they were not fudgy like brownies at all. The texture was more like cake. I think if you pulled them out before the center is set then maybe they would be fudgy. They were - 4/7/12
