Yes, it is more like a "cake" but very moist. It is not the traditional dense brownie. I mixed the chocolate chips inside, omitted the nuts and cinnamon and added used 1/4 c. of cocoa. My kids and husband loved them. Much healthier too. Made 1/2 recipe in 8x8. Will make again and again. Read More

BE WARNED, these are not your typical brownies. they are more like a milk-chocolate cake. i followed the directions exactly, but i did mix the chips into the batter. my family liked it a lot and i would make it again as a light dessert or as a cake and frost it. Read More

These brownies came out fairly soft but yummy none the less especially since they are healthier than others! If you like your brownies really chocolate-y I would recomend adding extra cocoa. I would also recomend stirring the chocolate chips and walnuts into the batter as appose to sprinkling them on. The walnuts can be skipped altogether for a more kid-friendly recipe. Read More

Don't know why all the trouble. They turned out GREAT 4 me. I frosted them with milk chocolate frosting and sprinkled tiny m & m's on top and I was scared people would find me the next morning with my feet in the air with a big black smudge on my face cause I almost ate the whole thing! Thanks for a great recipe.:-) Read More

Alone the brownies are pretty good but not what you think of when you hear "brownie". Something was missing so I frosted them with a peanut butter frosting they were gone in a day! Good recipe to use up applesauce. Read More
