Happy Friday, FFF friends! Today is our first day back from our Thrifty Traveler trip to Las Vegas! If you followed us on Instagram for the trip, you know that we didn’t do your typical Vegas trip and MAN was it a blast! We can not wait to tell you all about it. Make sure you keep an eye out for our posts on where we stayed, what we ate, and what we climbed. Yes, CLIMBED. WOO. Now, brownies.

There is nothing like a delicious brownie to really make it a good day. Wheather you start your day off with a cup of coffee and one of these fudgy homemade brownies or end your day with a treat it seems that brownies are always a good idea! Can I get an AMEN? We originally made these healthy homemade brownies in 2013. It is one of the recipes we found where the recipe was pretty quality but the photos needed some work.

We LOVE sneaking healthy ingredients into baked goods. More specifically, pureed fruits and vegetables. Have you tried our Sneaky Beet Brownies or our Healthy Whole Wheat Pumpkin Walnut Bread? One is made with beet puree and the other with pumpkin. It is just a great way to give some extra nutrients and moisture to a recipe! We originally made these brownies with garbanzo bean flour but thought pureed garbanzo beans were definitely the way to go.
