BM # 68 Day 14 -
I was looking for a brownie recipe which doesn't use wheat flour. So when I found this, I looked at the ingredients and felt that there are more healthy ingredients in this brownie than I can ask for.
My older one who doesn't like banana in baked goods figured out the banana in these brownies and frowned at me but didn't refuse her portion :). My husband and the little one thoroughly enjoyed their share. And no one guessed the presence of Ragi flour in there.
I felt the brownie as is was a little on the drier side but when combined with ice cream it was pure bliss!
