I made this recipe for my Weight Watcher group, cutting the squares in quarters, which made them 1 points plus! The recipe got raves!! They were fabulous! You cannot taste the spinach at all. They were so moist and chewy! My leader even took the leftovers to her next meeting! I will make these again!

Sorry, but I didn't like them and neither did my girls. They had a strange taste and smell. But - I would say it's worth a try. My girls love my sweet potatoe pancakes and have no idea how healthy they are.

great recipe! For a shortcut - don't bother to melt the chocolate chips. Just spread them on top of the brownie when it comes out of the oven. the heat will soften the chocolate so you can spread it around.
