The healthy brownie vs. the good ones

I don't eat all that healthy, its true I will admit it. I would love to say I can keep myself from sweets (before becoming pregnant I could... now?...that's laughable!) People have said "well if you eat the junk foods in moderation and not too often whats the big deal?" well, that works for some but for me, I like to snack and if its in the house I will snack at night on it. As of late I am turning a new leaf...I want to be healthy, have more energy just feel better. I want to teach my son to eat better.
So I have been trying to find new recipes. One I came across today for brownies caught my eye so I thought I would give it a try...I did but half way through mixing it up realized I didn't have all the ingredients I needed so I kinda made up my own as I went along. I have to say it came out pretty good. :)
Very chocolate, fixes the sweet tooth and I feel better knowing I am eating better whats not to like?
