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.
This was good for me being on a no sugar diet. I used wheat flour and added a teaspoon baking powder. I dipped the bownie into sugarfree pudding and it satisfied my sugar and chocolate craving. Thanks for the recipe!
Best sugar free brownies I've tried! I think I might add a bit of baking powder next time, as mine came out super flat & chewy
These turned out great with a very good flavor. You can really taste the chocolate flavor. The only downside to these is that they taste more like chocolate cake instead of chocolate brownies, but great recipe nonetheless.
Really good for sugar-free! I also reduced the fat by using 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup applesauce, I also added 1 tsp. vanilla and cooked it for 15 minutes (in a confection oven). Though they turn out like a bar-cookie, very tasty with milk.
These are awesome! I only made a couple changes, by using almond flour, instead of all purpose, and I added about 1/2 bag of dark chocolate chips, and no nuts. Hubby LOVED them, and is requesting them all the time now!! Thanks so much! :)
My dear tara If you don't need to eat sugar free then don't. I have been looking for a recipe for sugar free brownies, cause I am diabetic. my husband has the same comment about sugar free things, after taste. you wouldn't be saying that if you couldn't eat the sugar.
I read the other reviews and actually added more Splenda to this recipe? they looked GREAT when they came out of the oven? smelled wonderful BUT the taste was lacking sweetness.. there was not one bit of sweetness to it? I added Walnuts also thinking that they'd be great? I know they're sugar free but i thought all that sugar substitute would've made a difference? I guess for a diabetic, they'd be pretty good?
