5-A-DAY BROWNIES

These brownies feature five different fruits and veggies: blueberries, raspberries,
kale, carrots, and sweet potato. And they are made with whole grains. But
your taste buds will only register the rich, fudgy brownie part. I usually don’t
call for two different blends in a recipe, but they allow you to replace nearly all
of the oil and sugar—making this a brownie that’s incredibly good for you.
