We loved them. I didn't have any baby food prunes so I improvised. We have 3 fig trees and we had dehydrated a lot of figs this year so I took some dried figs and boiled them for a few minutes and then pureed them and added water as needed to make the consistency of baby food. This is the best lowfat dessert recipe that I have made to date. Read More

These Brownies tasted awful! They tasted like flour and we're tough. I would never fix them again. Read More

The fat content for these brownies is GREAT but the taste is wanting. I redeemed the batch I made by putting a butter chocolate frosting on them. It added just a little more fat. Read More

I have to say the way I made these they weren't great. I didn't have any cake flour so I used AP flour. I also substituted Splenda for the sugar. They were a bit rubbery and bland. I put some cool whip on it and it help it a ton! So overall I'd didn't think they were bad for the calories they had. I'll make these again! Read More

My husband's take: No just no. These were pretty bad. I didn't expect regular brownies but I don't even know where to begin to make them better...so I won't. I made the recipe AS IS. And No just no. Read More

Keeping in mind that these are low in fat and calories they are quite good. They hit the chocolate spot without all the guilt. Read More

These were awful. They tasted low fat and were dry nothing like a brownie should be. I threw them away. Read More

I believe these are the make it yourself version of No Pudge brownies. I would rather the low fat boxed mix which is higher in fat calories but at least has taste! Read More

i found the texture was fine. not like brownies true but not bad nice and light. i think the trick to making these really good is in the mixing how long you beat the egg whites for etc. I'll probably try them again with a little more cocoa or something. maybe some coffee. Read More
