Granted I didn't have eggs (substituted one tbsp corn starch and three tbsp. of water) these had great appearence buy somewhat mushy texture, I'd probably do more oil less applesauce next time or try to find a sub for the yogurt. Super healthy though and that was what I was going for, honestly I bet the guys at work won't really notice!
Terrific brownies. I adjusted this to be even mroe low fat and calorie by using 1/2 c brown sugar splenda blend for the sugar, and using 1/4 cup applesauce for the oil as well. Moist and yummy with great flavor.
I really liked them moist, which was how they came out. The marshmellows were nice and gooey after 10 minutes, which was also to my liking, but they came out a bit messy on my chin and clothes :P, but all in all I really enjoyed them.
