A few months ago, I was diagnosed with high sugar. It’s been running pretty high lately and with no change in diet, My doctor and I could not figure out why. Well… with the onset of sugar pills and insulin to stabilize my sugar levels, the remedy has begun. I am doing well, however, I have a crazy sweet tooth. I have pretty much avoided cakes and candies and am always on the lookout for a low sugar snack. Today, I’m going to share with a recipe that will delight and not send your sugar levels through the roof. Double Chocolate Brownies and I came across this recipe from Meals on Wheels.
