Dark Chocolate “Healthy” Brownies

These are the easiest and healthiest brownies I have ever made.  Usually you make a healthy brownie and you spend all that time putting it together and baking it. Then when you finally get that moment of pure bliss and take your first bite and it ends up “OK”.  Nobody wants an “OK” healthy brownie, right?  I made these and my mind was blown when I took that first bite.  So good and I don’t feel bad eating the entire batch on my own (ok, maybe I feel a little disgusted about my lack of self control).

Alright, enough messin around lets get to the nuts and bolts of this delicious and heavenly dessert.

I literally just dumped everything except for the chocolate chips in my Vitamix (have I ever said “I love my Vitamix?) and give it a good mixin.


Now mix in your dark chocolate chips (at least 60% cocoa) and semi sweet chocolate chips.  Let me just mention that using half dark chocolate chips makes a huge difference for me.  It makes your brownies so much richer and decadent.  Just trust me on this.

If you like nuts in your brownies now would be the time as well.  The hubby is allergic to most nuts so I just leave them out.  I don’t think they need it anyway.

Ok, dump everything into a 9×9 glass baking dish that has been greased and pop them in the oven.

Hang in there.  The time staring into the oven is well worth it.
