My granddaughter, Makayla, unlike most kids, has never been a sweet eater, give her a piece of fruit any time....however, when it comes to brownies...that's an entirely different story. On her birthdays, she always asks me to make her brownies. This is by far the best brownie recipe I have come across. I have to leave out the nuts for Makayla...
