A shorter post this morning as I try and catch up from M being sick:

Today is a recipe from my mother’s stockpile of favorites.  It seems I tend to weight my blog down with calorie-laden desserts (which is also a good possibility why I struggle to loose weight…)

This brownie is made with egg whites, whole wheat flour, and not a lot of butter.  Each brownie square comes in under a 100 calories and yet, the dense brownie texture (and flavor) is still there!  So, if you want a delicious brownie without having to feel too guilty, I really suggest you try these.  They also freeze well just in case you are tempted to eat the entire pan!
