Low-Fat Fudge Brownies

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by MissAli

After finding the recipes for low fat brownies on the Zaar lacking, I decided to create my own recipe. Here is what I've come up with, much lower in fat and still delicious. I've put the molasses as optional, because I've made it with out, but I think it really enhances the flavor. You may stir in 1/2 cup chopped nuts after the last step, but that will add more fat to the recipe. And, you may use two squares unsweetened baking chocolate instead of the cocoa, oil, and extra tablespoon of applesauce

These are so easy and yet taste great! I did add the molasses, was a little leary because just the smell of molasses makes makes me cringe. These make a great lunch box snack for the kids. I did a light dusting of powdered sugar on mine when they cooled. Great recipe, Thanks for sharing!
