I made some changes and they are awesome. Only 1c sugar. Used Organic cake flour. Instead of almond I used 1/4 "pinch" spoon of amaretto flavoring. Almond milk instead of soy. Grapeseed oil instead of margarine.  Very yummy and very moist - will become one of my favorites.


These are sooooo tasty! Haribol!


The texture is good, but the first bite is a little off-putting.  You have to "get into" the brownie a bit before you really start to enjoy the texture and flavors.  The almond extract was an interesting addition; wasn't quite sure if I liked the carob-almond combo at first, but once I got into it, it was very pleasant.  I made these for a bakesale.  I will write an update and let you know how people liked them.
