Eat Skinny Be Skinny: Salted Chocolate Brownies

Eat Skinny Be Skinny: Salted Chocolate Brownies

In addition to struggling with portion control , I also have another food based nemesis that always seems to get the best of me. And it’s name is chocolate. Now, add a dash of sea salt to said chocolate and I’m quivering at my knees and face planting into the cake, cookie or brownie batter.

I do have 20 pounds to lose, I am trying to control my portions and eat better, so I can’t just eat a bowl of brownie batter anymore and choc it up to a bad day (or a Tuesday). But, I’m not going to give it up. Elimination diets don’t really work and I’m not about completely cutting out a food group. So instead, when my craving came a-knockin’ last night for a sweet, salty chocolate brownie, I gave in. But did some magic in the kitchen first
