Paleo Brownies

Two thumbs up from my 4 and 5 year old!!  This recipe is a keeper and no one will ever know it is not a regular brownie.  I've been threatening to write up this recipe for months now and finally I find the time to get it done.  If you are about to start the next Paleo Challenge take out the agave and use a cup of apple butter instead then make up a batch of these gems and freeze them.  Pull a couple out at a time for an awesome Paleo treat at the end of a successful Paleo week.  You deserve it!
