"We were looking for a quick recipe for a family dessert. I'd heard of microwave brownies before, but had never tried them. I cannot eat wheat, so I substituted with Spelt flour. I also used Special Dark cocoa powder. These were very good and disappeared before it could cool off completely. I was happy to be able to eat the treat along with my family and my boys LOVED them and no one could tell I'd used a different flour. :)"
