These brownies are nice & sweet & incredibly moist & chewy! My only complaint is that you can REALLY taste the prunes - I pureed my own so I don't know if that had something to do with it or not. But, they are so good, I'm gonna try again with baby food prunes & see if that's better.

These were fabulous! I reduced the salt to 1/2 tsp and I also added 1/4 tsp baking powder just because. I baked them for the whole 30 minutes and they came out just like the title says: dense and fudgy! I actually prefer the taste and texture to the regular brownies. No one will know they are low-fat! I made them for my nursing professor who is on a diet. :)

These were great! Perfect for my chocoholic husband who has to follow a low fat diet. I made them just as the recipe stated, and they came out great. Thanks for posting Mirj!
