Worthy of a special occasion... if that special occasion is an after-school snack! Occasionally I make this for my kids and have it ready when they get home from school. I like it because it is a treat... but not too bad for you. It has only healthy fats (no sat or trans fats-- I use canola oil it it). True, it has no fiber or anything else good to speak of... but serve it with some berries on the side and a glass of milk and it's not too bad. Also, I skip the frosting and just serve it warm just out-of-the-oven like a brownie. You could sprinkle some powdered sugar on top for a finished look if you'd like.
