Here's a glimpse into your child's inner dialogue as they open their lunch box: "Hmm…sandwich (yawn), piece of fruit (fine) and veggies with dip (that's cool). Wait, what's that? Did my mom actually put a brownie into my lunch? Yes!!"
In that instant you become the awesome mom or dad who surprises your kid by putting a delectable treat in your kids lunch.
But these are a bit healthier and lighter then traditional brownies without sacrificing a bit of the indulgence of an intensely rich dessert. Yes, there's some apple sauce in them to cut down on the amount of fat and whole wheat flour for a bit of additional nutrition, but there's also a deep chocolate flavor and mini chocolate chips to add to the glee of finding one of these little treasures in the middle of the day.
