Recipe for No Sugar Brownie:
¼ cup butter
¾ cup Honey (I used 1/2 honey and 1/2 agave nectar and didn't fill it to the top of the 3/4 cup measure.)
1 tsp. vanilla
½ cup flour (I always use self-rising flour so I ommited the baking powder and salt.)
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
4 tbsp. Cocoa
1/2 cup chopped nuts if desired (I left these out b/c one son doesn't like them.)
Cream together butter and honey. (Spray the measuring cup and the honey will slide right out. Beat in egg and vanilla. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt. Stir in nuts. Pour batter into greased 9"x9" pan. Bake at 325 F for 20-25 minutes.
I was low on agave nectar or I would have used it in place of the honey altogether.

Last week I was out of the natural peanut butter that I usually put on my whole grain waffle topped with banana slices. So I tried a swirl of agave nectar. It was delicious! I'm going to experiement more with agave nectar and I'll be sure to keep you posted. If you decide to try this recipe, in a few days you can find it on my sidebar.
Do you use agave nectar? If so, how?
