    I have to stop myself from eating more than one apple a day at this time of year. I tend to overdo it and give myself a belly ache. Lol. I love these recipes. i am so glad to see this flourless apple brownies recipe. My neighbor called me last night asking if I knew of a good apple brownie recipe. I’ll have to ass it on to her.
