They turned out dry, but if you were making them for your kids they would dip well in Milk. I used half sugar and half splenda and it worked out great. I also doubled the recipe and used a raised cookie sheet for a thin brownie.

It was good...I mean I enjoyed it...but it was just too dry for me to love it. Perhaps if next time I added 1/4 cup applesauce in addition to the 1/4 oil. Also, I didn't have peppermint extract, so I just used some Mint syrup. Had a nice, subtle flavor. My favorite part was, by far, the cream cheese top! So luscious and rich, and I couldn't believe that I had made it with fat-free cream cheese! If I can find a way to make these more cake-like brownies, and less dense, I will definintely be making these a lot!
