This recipe is the only low fat brownie recipe that has ever turned out well for me! It does not yield a odd texture like other low fat brownies.

Very, very gooey brownies. I added walnuts and chocolate chips which seemed to give the right amount of crunch to offset the gooeyness. They're very sweet--next time I'll try different sugars (used 3/4 dark brown sugar and 1/4 regular white). Now I'm inspired to find recipes for cakey brownies and fudgey brownies as well!
