"Special" Chocolate Brownies

I have a complete love of chocolate. In fact, my day is not complete without some nibble of the cocoa goodness. Here is my almost guilt-free recipe for dark chocolate brownies. I use them as my daily fix. Adapted from The Sneaky Chef.

Preheat oven to 350


2 egg whites
2 tablespoons walnut oil
6 tablespoons agave nectar (honey, maple syrup or brown rice syrup)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup white flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
2 tablespoons flax seed
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons instant coffee granules

Flatten into greased 9x9 pan. Bake 12 to 14 minutes.
