I am so sorry about this rating, but I have to be honest! I followed the recipe exactly but they didn't have any was ready right when you said- 25 minutes- and I was really excited about it. Normally, I stick to box mixes (even then I have a tendency to overcook them) and today, since I didn't have any, I found your recipe. I gave it a 2 out of 5, rather than a 1, because of how easy they were to prepare, and how they cooked evenly; as well as how they looked (and smelled) great. Again, I am sorry that they didn't turn out good. The texture was like a cake instead of a brownie. Perhaps it could be a cake mix? I should have added some chocolate frosting to the top to see....I'll keep looking for more brownie recipes!

This is a pretty good recipe for low fat brownies. I really liked the addition of the almonds.
