    I made these and they came out completely flat (about 1/4 inch).
    Should there be baking powder in this recipe ?

      Hi Dominique, the recipe does call for baking soda. Did you possibly forget to include it?

        I did put baking soda. I was asking about baking powder . The recipe doesn’t mention any and I was wondering if that was the reason the brownies came out flat (didn’t raise at all).

    I would recommend a slightly smaller baking tin. I made them without any of the sweetener and were perfectly nice. Obviously not as nice as a normal brownie but considering how healthy they are there good.
