Moosewood Brownies

Last summer, my family took a road trip to NYC. It was a great vacation, and we had lots of fun. The city was fantastic, but we also had lots of fun on the places we stopped along the way. One of those places was Ithaca, New York. It is well-known for Cornell University, but also for one of the most famous vegetarian restaurants, The Moosewood Restaurant. We ate there on our one night in Ithaca, and it was a really fun experience. The menu changes nightly, so you never know what you're going to get!

One thing on the menu that doesn't change, though, is the Moosewood Brownie. Since the menu at the Moosewood is pretty healthy, you feel like you can indulge in dessert. Two of us ordered them, and they were so good, we wished we had all ordered one! On our way out, we purchased a copy of The Moosewood Cookbook, and luckily, the brownie recipe was in it!

These brownies are dense, fudgey and super delicious! They're also made with brown sugar, which is something I;ve never seen in a brownie recipe before. Maybe that's the secret to making them so scrumptious...
