Whoever said that dessert cant be healthy,throw this brownie on his face ;) !!!! These are real real treat when you are watching your weight and have big sweet tooth too :D they are fudgy,dense,light and realllly healthy !

I am on my weight loss journey frm last few months.As they say nice body cant be achieve just in gym but in your kitchen, i keep experimenting with my lunch n snacks.In general people have perception about it as plain tasteless food with no excitement but let me tell you..if you are really determine its not at all true..i started posting healthy recipes recently but not much.but ll try to do more... :)

now coming back to these beauties....i always wanted to make brownies in steaming method as it takes less oil in process.after thinking alot i came up with this recipe.Its perfect !!! they are so guilt free that now you can find some of them always sitting in my fridge corner :P Just try them once n you ll not be disappointed at all.
