Healthy brownies recipe is made with plant-based whole food ingredients and great for keto and vegan eaters. Kids love them and make them!

Original Healthy Cookies Kids Love recipe came from Liza Davis, mother of 4, who makes them often and her young kids love and make them on their own. When we met and shared our favorite Grandma Favorite Candy recipe, we realized they were almost identical except for one additional step – baking with adding soda and vinegar. My mom, a food scientist, and my daughter who is 8 yrs tested and twisted the recipe and the Healthy Cookies recipe turned into Healthy Brownies. They are soft on texture like real cookies but with all healthy ingredients. Hope you will enjoy them as much as we do!

If you do not have time to bake, you can remove such ingredients as soda and lemon juice and freeze without baking. In this case, look at our Grandmas Healthy Candy recipe.
