What I Thought:
Great brownies and a wonderful way to use up the whole wheat flour I had sitting from another recipe. The brownies are not sweet at all. Maybe just a slight bit of sweetness for people sensitive to that kind of thing, but for me ~ a lover of all things sweet ~ they weren’t sweet at all. However, this type of snack is nice to have around when you need a break from the sweetness. Very moist and tasty.
Changes I Made:
I am not a big fan of nuts in recipes so I omitted the walnuts.
I did not have buttermilk, so I used ¼ cup milk and 2 tsp. lemon juice then let it sit for a few minute before adding it to the mixture.
I used 2 eggs. Not a fan of egg substitute unless I have it in the house for something else already.
If you want to add a little sweet to this recipe, I highly recommend the cream cheese icing featured in the spiced pumpkin cupcakes recipe posted yesterday.

1/4 cup vegetable oil, such as canola

white, or 1/2 cup egg substitute)
