With a few substitutions, this turned out to be a tasty and healthy brownie. I substituted whole wheat pastry flour for the all purpose flour and used 1/4 cup of sugar 1/2 cup of splenda. I also decreased the oil to 1/4 cup and added 1/4 of applesauce. After tasting the batter I added a tablespoon of cocoa powder and a pinch of salt and used the egg whites instead of the ener-g egg. Results were more cakelike than brownie-like in texture but I believe the desirable brownie texture would come if I decrease the amount of flour. Overall, a fantastic dessert with almost no-guilt. Thanks!!
