    Under the 21 day fix it shows 1/2 yellow and 2 teaspoons. Is this for one of the 8 squares or is it for the actual serving size? (Recipe says to cut into 8 squares, but the recipe says it yields 16 servings.)

    Has anyone tried this yet? I find every recipe I’ve tries in healthy brownies is God awful. Just in my opinion. I tried on with pumpkin, Just bad, Bad. I did a black bean really bad. Nothing like brownies. I keep my brownies for a cheat day and have one that is in fact a real brownie. LOL
