healthy brownies

Phewwwwww. These last few weeks have been quite the doozy. Our American visitors were here and our teammates who live in Otji just left for the States for *gaaaaasp* 6 months. Yah, that happened. Ooph. I almost {aaaalmost} feel like saying goodbye to two of my BESTFRIENDSINTHEENTIREUNIVERSE for 6 months was harder than saying goodbye to my friends in the states for two years. And I knew those peoples my whole life, saywhat? This confirms that sneaky suspicion of mine that says we're seriously secretly related. Good gracious, I may be like a foot taller, but seriously. We can't go longer than a day without talking to each other. See now why I'm not happy they're gone for 6 months? Which seriously feels like decades… I need chocolate. No seriously. My other friend and I have been dreading this day for months. We knew it'd come, but at the same time we never thought it'd actually happen, ya know? Sure it's not going to be fun {at. all.}, but we'll get through it. BARELY, but it'll happen. Thank GOOOOD we have each other's shoulders to cry on, chocolate to eat, and movies to watch. Yup, that's happening tonight. Mere hours after they left town and we're already whipping out the coping mechanisms of choice. Enter >>> brownies. I figured since we'd probably polish off the whole pan {I made the kid cookies last week because he stayed home from school with a sprained ankle. He ate 9. Don't question his abilities.}, I'd make them somewhat nutritious. I mean, he couldn't care less- he's a teenage boy with the metabolism of a 6 year old human child- but I like knowing that what I eat isn't jam packed of sugar, fat, and empty calories. IIIIIIIIIN fact, I did the math, and if your pan makes 12 decent sized brownies, they're about 110 calories each! Which means it's totally acceptable to eat half the pan. Dewwwwittttt.
