I made these into mini brownie loaves and the other reviewers are right about them being better the next day. Next time, I will add a shot of espresso to make them taste a little richer and have that cut through some of the sweetness.
I can't believe how great this recipe turned out. I actually made a few changes - I used 1 whole large egg rather than egg whites & I used splenda (baking sugar) rather than regular sugar. I just made them today - I think they're great. I'll be making these again - that's for sure. Joanne in Massachusetts
For a low fat brownie...these are delicious!!! It satisfied the DH's sweet/chocolate craving and as other reviewers have noted...they really did taste even better the next day! Next time, I'm going to try to see if I can get away with decreasing the sugar a little. Thanks so much for posting this!!
Great recipe, ate it the next day and it was lovely. Will make again with walnuts and possibly some sugar on top for a different texture. Thanks for sharing
SO good, Ive been baking low fat for years and this is amazing. I am still in shock at how good it is!
These were good. More cake-like than like brownies in my opinion, but good. I doubled the recipe as I only have a 9*13 inch pan, and used one egg instead of the egg whites and 2 cups of sugar total (since 3 1/2 cups seemed like it might be a bit excessively sweet). Aside from that I followed the recipe exactly. I will probably make these again, but not on a regular basis. When I make them, I will try to use good cocoa as all I had on hand was store brand which I think may have reduced the quality of the taste.
Absolutely delicious. I was looking for a low-fat recipe because the oil in standard mixes has a tendency to give me heartburn. I made these the first time to take to a Christmas party because the hostess is a fitness nut. I had intended to make a second batch of traditional (fattening) brownies for the others but had no need to, these were enjoyed by all. Thanks so much.
These brownies are DELICIOUS!! i never figured that low fat brownies would taste better than regular brownies. they remind me of a little debbie fudge round (minus the cream)... completly scrumptions. i'll defly make more!
We didn't like them at all and ended up throwing away almost the whole pan! They didn't have a very good chocolate flavor and you could definitely taste the applesauce! The texture also wasn't good. I was very disappointed.
Sorry, but the consistency and taste just wasn't there for us. I've had worse, but the texture was just too spongey. I ended up throwing them out.
