I adore sweet treats but am also health-conscious, so I love this brownie recipe. It tastes like the real thing but doesn't contain butter, flour, or dairy products.

My nutritionist, Hubert Cormier, explained that 100% pure maple syrup results in a low glycemic response compared with other carbohydrates (sugars), which is better for metabolic health. Basically, maple syrup is an excellent sweetener and is made here in Quebec!

I have to warn you that these brownies are perfect (I think so, anyway) but they're a little fragile. Wait until they're nice and cool before cutting them so they don't crumble.
