This recipe dates back to the mid-nineties from the Toronto Star. My mom found it, tried it and loved it back then, and I have been making them ever since! They are relatively low in fat, but high in sugar (well, they ARE brownies, what did you think?) I believe the article states they are from the Sunnybrook Health Science Centre’s Heart and Soul Cuisine
