Absolutely delicious! I did make a few modifications based on what I had in the house. I used 1/2 cup oil instead of applesauce, I used 3 eggs instead of 3/4 cup egg replacement, 1 egg in peanut...

These are very rich tasting but very sweet. I think cutting back on the sugar is a must. Also I found it too thick to spread and ended up adding a few dollops of plain yogurt to thin it out so...

So good! I had a box of brownie mix I had to use, so I just used the peanut butter filling and frosting parts of this recipe. However, I did make the brownies with applesauce and egg substitute....

Very unimpressive flavor.

I had this recipe from a magazine and lost it. I was so happy to have it again! These are wonderful for low fat brownies. The glaze is really good.

I liked these a lot - they are very chewy and that makes it difficult to scarf down the whole pan :)

Well, I didn't have high hopes for this, and I did notice that the texture was different from the classic brownie recipe I usually make. BUT MY KIDS LOVED THEM. They fought over them. So anytime...

Weird texture...my husband who was very excited about them when he saw the recipe was very disapointed. I will keep looking for the "perfect" peanut butter brownies for him.
