Guilt-Free Fudgy Brownies

Rated as 2 out of 5 Stars

"The only thing better than the taste is the fact that they are FAT FREE! They're a snap to make and the results are fantastic. I'm a health nut, always on a quest to create healthier treats, and these brownies taste as good, if not better, than the 'real thing.' Serve warm with fat-free frozen yogurt or top with fat-free whipped topping for a scrumptious chocolate dessert."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line an 8-inch square baking dish with parchment.
  2. Stir flour, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, sugar, and baking powder together in a bowl. Whisk milk, applesauce, and vanilla extract together in a small bowl; pour into flour mixture and stir with a fork until just combined into a batter. Spread the batter into the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  3. Whisk brown sugar, remaining 1/4 cup cocoa powder, and hot water together in a bowl until the sugar and cocoa dissolve; pour over the batter in the baking dish.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the top is dry and the edges have started to pull away from the sides of the pan, about 40 minutes; cool brownies slightly in pan before cutting to serve.


  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

The brownie part never baked, after leaving in an extra 5 minutes. Next time I will spray the pan, and line it. The topping seem to run under the parchment paper. I use it as a pudding cake; cut...

This was a gooey mess that didn't even resemble brownies. It tasted decent, but not super fudgy.

Okay so I was a little Leary on trying this based in the reviews, but really wanting something sweet that I could eat with no eggs I gave it a try. My husband and I liked it very much. What I di...

There was way too much liquid! I poured on the brown sugar, cocoa and water and it didnt dissolve. Itboiled the brownies! Poured out about1/2 cup of liquid after itbaked!
