This is very close to a recipe that's been in our family for eons--it's delicious: moist and spicy, yet nicely chewy. I posted mostly to respectfully disagree with jojoba. I have a recipe box full of older recipes that are labeled "_____ Brownies." The traditional usage for the term "brownies," at least among cooks of an older vintage than Jojoba, was that the bars were baked and looked "brown" due to the baking and caramelized sugar in the recipe, not due to cocoa powder. The terminology may have changed for the current generation who is used to the chocolate brownie, but we vintage cooks knew of brownie recipes that contained no chocolate at all.

These look good - and gosh knows I have mincemeat to use up - but it's not correct to label these "brownies" when there's no chocolate or cocoa. Bars or squares would be more appropriate.
