I don't suppose that you sister would care to share the secret to her success (i.e. her recipe) with all your readers? A low fat brownie that tastes like the real thing sounds good to me!


Sorry Nic! That would help, wouldn't it? I believe it was a half cup of applesauce. My sister used a Duncan Hines box, and they actually give the option there to substitute applesauce for oil.

If you wanted to make it from scratch, it would probably work just as well. I've made the brownie recipe right on the back of the Nestle chocolate chips bag, and it is decadent, full of chocolate. :)

Oh, fyi, I checked out your blog too, and the pictures are gorgeous. I may need to try the meat loaf recipe too.


The applesauce trick DOES work and they're delish! They're more on the cakey side, but if you've got to have a brownie it works.

Also, if you're looking for high-taste, low-fat, try No Pudge Brownie mix. You can get it at Trader Joe's, Whole Foods and sometimes at the chains, but all you do is add low-fat vanilla yogurt and they're incredible! And, they're Weight Watcher approved.
