He loves brownies. Top five desserts loves. Lonely island list loves. And fudge brownies are way better than cake brownies. So I’ve been on a hunt for a scratch fudge brownie recipe with little to no success… Until we finally joined weight watchers and I began looking at life through substitution lenses.
On a whim I looked through the baked mix aisle at the local store (as happens…probably weekly….) and came across Pillsbury Sugar Free Brownie Mix. Only 3 points for brownies you say? I’m in! Even if they aren’t great it’s a 3 point brownie. I’ve got to encourage the efforts for healthier treats when I can.
The batter was thicker than normal, but there was a warning on the box telling me that could happen. They only cooked for 28 minutes which is far less time than usual. They were thin in the pan, which I took as a sign. Something about small joys and less points because of less reward.
In the end they turned out amazing. They are rich, chocolatey, fudgey treats. Theserving is 12 per box and I could totally eat them all in one sitting. I take that as a good sign! It’s not a scratch brownie like I want, but it’s reconfirmed my new found healthier baking plans!
