Gwyneth Paltrow's Recipe for Healthy Brownies

When I saw that Gwyneth Paltrow came out with a new recipe book, My Father's Daughter: Delicious, Easy Recipes Celebrating Family & Togetherness I was skeptical, but very excited and with good reason because she has several really delicious recipes.  One of the most surprising is a deliciously healthy recipe for fudgey, chocolatey brownies! Sulpice Chocolat wants to let you know that the key here is not to forget to add the very strongly brewed coffee.  Even if you are not a fan of coffee, it is very important not to leave it out because when used in moderation with chocolate coffee will bring out the richness of chocolate.
