CyberParent's low-fat and lower-calorie chocolate brownie.
This "recipe" uses packaged chocolate brownie mix from the supermarket. Look for the lowest fat brownie mix to buy, as packaged not as prepared. Replace 1/2 the fat with applesauce, then replace each egg with two tablespoons of applesauce. Vegan vegetarian recipe.
For example: Recipe calls for
2 T oil
5 T applesauce
1 T canola oil
1 egg is replaced with 2 tablespoons of oil or one small, ripe banana
One-half of oil is replaced with applesauce.
These brownies do not stick together as well as conventional brownies, but they are just as tasty. In fact, they are delicious! Using the banana will make them stick together better. Of course, we never met a chocolate brownie we did not like!!!
Not exactly low-calorie, but certainly lower calorie. Now if we could just remove some more calories.....
We have split this batter in half and then stored it tightly covered and refrigerated. We have cooked them one-to-three days later with good results. That is one way to "cut calories:" spread the goodies out over several days instead of several hours.
