Wonderful dense fudgie brownies! We will definately make these again - I had a concern about the coffee taste after reading the reviews however my non-coffee drinking husband didn't notice any coffee flavor and ate two in no time. I baked my brownies in an 8x8 pan for 22 minutes.

I made this beaciue of the nice picture. Not bad at all for a low fat brownie, and I even lowfatted it a bit more. I didn't have as much better as I thought, so I used about 3 T butter and 3 T applesauce. I also used a/2 cup sugar and the rest splenda. I can't stand coffee so added extra vanilla. Very nice consistency, don't overbake them though.

Mmmm not too shabby for a low fat brownie! LOL Directions didn't say but I used an 8x8 pan. The coffee flavor comes through very strong so if you're not a fan of that flavor I wouldn't recommend this recipe. Even though I'm _not_ a coffee drinker, I do love chocolate & coffee desserts, so I loved these! Thanks for the recipe Redsie - I will be making these again!
