These moist, cinnamon-flavored brownies are quite easy to make. The recipe can also be doubled and baked in a jelly roll pan. My husband and I live on a farm in central Nebraska and have two grown daughters.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 10, 2014

My husband liked these flavorful, not overly sweet brownies. I did increase the cocoa to 1/4 cup on the first try which gives just a hint of chocolate, the cinnamon is subtle yet a delicious surprise. To save a few calories I used 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips and slightly less than 1/2 cup of chopped nuts and omitted the sugar in the topping. Will definitely double this in a jelly roll pan for larger crowds.
