Hello my friends!! I'm sure everyone has had *quite the week* and is looking forward to going home this evening and unwinding....perhaps having a nice, relaxing bubble bath, followed by some......Brownies ?!?! :-D hmmm....let's mak'em HEALTHY BROWNIES!!! What i did was, i altered my grandma's brownie recipe, editted out the refined sugars and starches and made this into a wonderful, healthy alternative to the conventional brownie...yet it still tastes GREAT!

-1 cup grinded oats (i like to grind mine in the coffee grinder, you can also use a blender)
-1/3 cup grinded Flaxseeds (the cheapest form of flaxseeds is buying in bulk, "Metro" and "Loblaws" sells them like this, if not, try Food Basics or NoFrills.... they come in a plastic container for pretty cheap!!! :)
-1/2 tsp sea-salt
-1 tsp baking powder
-1 cup butter (preferrably stick form-unsalted) OR YOU CAN USE COCONUT OIL INSTEAD =)
-1/4 tsp Ginger (this is a serotonin-booster ;) combined w/ cocoa = heavenly addition!!!)
***1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (this is OPTIONAL!!!! adds a nice ZING though.... )
-1 cup Frys Cocoa (NoName Cocoa is fine too!)
-1cup Splenda + 5envelopes STEVIA herbal sweetener
-2 omega eggs and 1cup/250ml(1 small carton) egg-whites --- THIS ADDS EXTRA PROTEIN ;)
-2tsp vanilla extract (Jamaican Vanilla tastes the best----sold @ West Indian stores)
***1cup chopped nuts (this is OPTIONAL!!!! don't add this if you're allergic to nuts lol)

Directions: Stir together grinded oats,  baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Melt butter/Coconut Oil in a large saucepan. Remove from heat. Stir in Cocoa. Blend in Splenda/Stevia, eggs/eggwhites and vanilla. Blend in dry ingredients and nuts. Pour batter into greased 13 x 9 x 2-inch rectangular baking pan. Bake in a preheated 350degreesFahrenheit (180celsius) oven for 30-45 minutes or until done. You can check to see if they're done by poking a toothpick through the brownie, if it comes out clean then they're done!! Let Cool.
***NOTE*** These friendly brownies are high in essential fatty acids (omega 3-6-9), high in fiber, iron, antioxidants, flavonoids, protein, vitamin B6, and electrolytes (potassium/sodium) ... They WILL make you feel GREAT after you eat them. I promise :)

Now that your brownies are ready, it's time to watch a Movie/DVD or take a bubble bath and enjoy your yummy and Healthy baked goods... and perhaps indulge in a nice, Healthy glass of Dry Red Wine!!
A tip when buying red wine---Make sure that the wine is ranked a ZERO (0) or maximum a ONE (1) ...ask the staff at the LCBO to find you a 0 or 1 wine....these wines are "low glycemic" therefore lower in carbs than say, a sweeter wine that would be ranked a higher number... i REALLY hope this helps!!!

With Love,
