* You will never taste the spinach or prune in these outstanding brownies. However, if you do not like prune, feel free to substitute with 1/3 cup (113 g) pureed raspberries or blueberries for equally delicious results. (Note: you can also substitute chopped spinach with chopped kale or blend the two!)
