Almond "Butt"er Busting Brownie

Dr. Oz's Butt-Busting Brownie

As a Mama of a 7 month old (OMG! Shes 7 months old!) I find myself catching up on the daytime t.v from time to time. And the other day I was watching doctor oz when a recipe he showed caught my appetite! Its a healthy fact he claims it is a butt busting brownie! Ok...I will give it a go! I love brownies!!

Well, as per usual, I changed the ingredients slightly as I felt it needed a bit of tweaking for flavor and sweetness. 

Below is what I used to make it a little more palatable. But I will give you a has a kick to it! The cayenne pepper really hits you at the end!
