My friends and family encouraged me to enter my blonde brownie recipe in this contest. They love this pared-down version of the classic snack and never suspect that I use whole wheat flour. —Kai Kupinski of Canton, Michigan

"My family is used to the "wheat flour flavor" so was not an issue. I did find they were a little dry, and I might try adding a little something "extra" to give them some moisture. Otherwise, was good for a "diabetic" friendly recipe I am trying out for a man that goes to my church."

"I made this recipe several times and love the fact that there is only 17 g carbs per bar. They are a healthy alternative when the chocolate cravings creep up on you."

"I thought these were great as is, loved the nutty-chocolate taste the wheat flour gave it."

"The wheat flour gave a strong wheat taste to it. I took the advice & added ice cream & carmel which I'm sure didn't keep this light, but helped drown out the strong wheat taste. The family didn't care for this receipe. I won't make again as recipe states, mmaybe all white flour would help."

"Made them twice, first time as directed except used Peanut butter & milk chocolate chips. Batter is very thick. They are good but needed something extra. The second time made as the first time but added just 1 tablespoon of milk so the batter was not as thick; after baking drizzled Caramel Chocolate Sauce over the top right after coming out of the oven. Next time might try just a caramel topping sauce drizzled over the top."

"Easy to make; had all the ingredients; but did not serve them. Bland and boring. Not a keeper, IMO."
