    Sounds great! I really like using whole grains so this is right up my alley. I like the applesauce idea too, I might try that.

    Congrats and welcome to the world of healthy brownies! Having lots of experience in this realm, I'd love to share how I would make these brownies healthier + super tasty: Use only 0.5c butter (or virgin coconut oil), only 1c of brown sugar (or sucanat), and add 1.25c pureed prunes. (Make your own puree: http://www.pattycake.ca/recipes/fruitpuree).

    Happy healthy baking. 🙂

    These brownies look so good and the fact that its whole grain is a healthy bonus!

    That looks like the kinda whole grains I'd love to sink my teeth into. Wait overnight? I'm sure I wouldn't be able to!

    Forgot to mention that your photo is beautiful (as always!) and I love the recipe you choose – a great way to add some whole grain goodness into a decadent treat.

    Patty- Thank you for the recommendations! I would have never thought of prune puree. Also thank you for the compliment.

    I made these last night, and was a little nervous about how the whole wheat would taste. Turns out, I had no reason to worry! These were great, thanks for the recipe!

    Have you checked out the cookbook “Good To The Grain”?

    Be careful, whole grain and whole wheat are not necessarily synonymous. Whole grain is much healthier. Make sure you pick the right product 🙂

    I can’t wait to try this recipe…I have been craving brownies….But looking for healthier options…So have you substituted the Applesauce in place of butter? I am very excited to see so I can make them soon 🙂

      I still haven’t gotten around to trying applesauce in these brownies. Let me know if you try!

    Can I reduce the brown sugar? And, what do you think if peanut butter was added? How much would I put of that? Would I have to reduce any quantity of the ingredients or just leave it as it is and add the peanut butter?

    Sorry, I also just wanted to ask as well, is it possible to replace some of the butter with Greek yoghurt or would that not work as well?
