I am sweets lover. This is one of my favorite recipes because not only I love eating brownies, but also this recipe make it healthier to do so. The garbanzo beans help with constipation so it is a double bonus eating these brownies! My kids love it too, and I feel good when I know I am feeding them with healthy food and that they enjoy it. This recipe is rich in protein, iron, and fiber.
