Awesome Healthy Brownies

It sounds weird but it’s totally awesome and worth trying it out to prove it taste totally normal.  I love making desserts that I can have seconds and eat without feeling guilty. Lowering the sugar content is the first place to start. Feel free to substitute some of the ingredients, thats the fun of it, making it the way that suits you. I have a feeling that these brownies will be famous once people try them!

Preheat oven to 350. Parchment paper a 9X11 pan.
Follow instructions on the lentil package. Puree the lentils and split the batch in half which will give about 1 3/4 cups. In a large bowl, prepare the flax or chia egg and let sit for 5 minutes. Blend in the sugar, maple syrup, oil, vanilla, pumpkin and lentils. Mix in the dry ingredients, then fold in half the walnuts and chocolate chips. Pour batter in the pan and top with the rest of the nuts and chocolate chips.
Bake for about 32 minutes, until a tooth pick come out almost clean. It is very important to cool the brownies completely in the fridge. The inside of the brownies are very gooey when warm and set when cooled.

Someone told me you can bring your old Halloween pumpkins to Wild at Heart and they feed some animals. It’s a nice idea!
