A Single Gal’s Brownie Binge (boring) Weekend

What am I DOING this weekend?
Does this answer your question?…

The only reason I am not crippled by guilt and slumped over the toilet with my head in the bowl in my own version of a metaphorical ‘vomitorium’ like the Romans (Ok it was a myth) is because these were those “Damn Healthy Brownies.”  It just so happens they delicious, are lower in fat than if I were to use the mass amounts of butter as I did in my other ‘Road to Obesity’ version, and are gluten-free as they are not made with flour but… Are you sitting down? … BLACK BEANS.

I digress I had remote inclination that they would taste this good and that I would have all but eaten the whole pan in less than 24 hours.

What do you want?
I am single, bored, living in a foreign country…
and NOT having sex.

Therefore without further adieu I give you: 
“Those Damn Healthy Brownies”…

I can assure you all of their chocolate-y, moist, deliciousness as they have justifiably earned the prestigious ‘Cakes McCain Dessert-Snob Seal of Approval.’

Now if you will all excuse me, I have a pan of brownies to finish…
Buon Weekend!

And incase you were wondering…

      Actually it YOU that inspired this post to some degree (that and my gluttony and boredom)… I had made these before and knew they were really good, I was bored so last night so I made them, and I read your post mentioning gluten-free everything so here we are!

        Now if you are REALLY adventurous, you could take some gluten-free cookies and dip them in a HUGE glob of chocolate hummous. Yes, you heard right… It’s awesome! (And we can thank Oprah for that one.)
