I was very curious about these brownies and was excited to try them. I kind of thought that they were going to be one of those unexplained phenomenons where they tasted just like regular brownies and everyone would be shocked to learn of their ingredients.
Well...no such luck. I took the first bite (with big expectations) and was horribly disappointed. They tasted like chocolate flavored bean bars. I think eating them right out of the oven was the problem. As they cooled and I tried more, they started to grow on me!
My daughter liked them and thought they were normal brownies, but my son wasn't fooled and wouldn't touch it (ever since, he's refused any brownie!).
I kind of enjoyed them after they had chilled in the fridge for a bit and they tasted kind of good! I don't think I'll probably make this recipe (linked above) again, but I'm glad I tried it, and we ate the entire pan!
I substituted truvia sweetener for the sugar and brown sugar to make it THM friendly, so that may have affected the outcome also.
