Fudgey healthier brownies (Gluten Free)

Chocolate is for sure the best medicine will mend anything, a broken heart, a broken a toe or a sweet tooth in need. At the rate these chocolate brownies are disappearing my recovery rate will be miraculous.
I have been baking these beany bad boys daily, my favourite way is in the muffin pan for individual bite sized brownies with extra crispy sides and a deep filled fudge like center. Best way Only way is to eat the hot straight outta the pan.
Reeeeewind. Im taking us back to my brownie post circa June 2011. Whilst this brownies were good, being a baking perfectionist i wanted to make them better... there now 100% bettererrrr. Still fat free and packed with that good fibre stuff. There now. Decadently fudgey with a proper naughtily should be criminal taste... except they are not reeeeeally a guilty sin they are totes innocent ;)
