low fat brownies

Today I’m sharing one of my favorite low fat brownie recipes. It’s made in one bowl and calls for either prune puree or drained applesauce in place of any oil or butter. However, it’s not entirely fat free because it includes 1 egg yolk and 1/4 cup of dark chocolate chips. I can’t say these […]

This is a recipe I make when I want a brownie that’s very chocolaty, but less greasy. It’s not a fat free brownie (obviously), but according to the nutrition software I use, the fat comes in at about 29% per serving, which is lower than in some other recipes. So there’s that, plus I like […]

Disney Boardwalk

Now that we’re home from Disney World, I can officially say that late August is a decent time to go. It was very humid, but there were also scattered showers and periods where the sky was overcast and the temperature was pleasantly warm rather than hot. Those days were the best!  Our hotel was called […]

Fudge Topped Brownies

fudge topped brownies

These brownies were created in an effort to use up half a box of brownie mix and a partially filled can of condensed milk. And hooray! Because my attempt to get rid of stuff resulted in a really good tasting brownie which I would definitely make again. Next time I’ll go with a scratch base, […]
