    This recipe looks a lot healthier than a recipe for blonde brownies that I have in one of my cookbooks! I love the fact that there is wheat germ and oat bran in this. I use whole wheat flour a lot in my baking. Thank you for this recipe…I will give this one a try and let you know how they turned out….and how fast they disappeared!!

    Navy Bean puree is definitely a different ingredient – my family loves treat and it would be great to sneak some nutritional value in there so I think I will have to try these out! Thanks for the recipe!
