Haven't tried these yet, but I plan to because DH is a diabetic AND a chocoholic! However, I did want to add a comment first about using Splenda in baked goods - to increase volume, add 1/2 cup of dry milk powder and 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. Also, if you are replacing the sugar with Splenda Sugar Blend (not Splenda granular), be sure to only use 1/2 of the measurement of real sugar called for in the recipe. Hope these tips help - visit www.Splenda.com & click on the Cooking & Baking tab at the top of the page. -M ***UPDATE*** Made these over weekend & was pleased with the results, although the brownies seemed a bit dry -- I'm new at baking with Splenda, so I didn't realize I should have taken them out of the oven a few minutes before the stated baking time. But, these are very good nonetheless. Next time I think I will add some chocolate chips just to increase the chocolate flavor. Thanks for posting!
A wonderful Splenda recipe with a great flavor! Just the right amount of chocolate. I baked them for only 25 minutes to prevent being too dry. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Prepared while a participant in the "Low-in and Free-of February 2008 Photo Forum Event.
I made these for my boss who is a diabetic, and was almost too embarassed to give them to him. Maybe if you doubled the Splenda like a previous reviewer said, this would be a better brownie recipe (although they still didn't rise like the ones pictured). As is, this is a fairly good recipe for slightly chewy, sort of sweet chocolate pancakes.
