Reviews for Lighter Fudgy Brownies
"These were very good; doubled the recipe - all were gone in one night! Very fudgy and easy to make. I was surprised how fast they were to make! I left out the nuts, but will try again soon with them! Loved these delicious brownies - especially with no saturated fat!"
"Not anything like the review stated."
"This is our family's standy brownie recipe. You can't beat it for being quick and low fat. I vary it by sometimes using other flavors of yogurt, peach is our favorite, and different nuts, like pecans. My kids love them when I put them in a bowl, add a few canned peaches, drizzle with a little choc syrup, and sprinkle with powdered sugar. It makes them feel like it is a very special treat! My husband and I eat them plain, and we will eat them all up if we are not careful. Try them, they are very good! And thank you Denise for a wonderful recipe!"
"I previously wrote my review and forgot to give it the star ratings. Excellent brownie and so easy to make. I make double batches and freeze them. Even the grandchildren like them."
"i enjoyed everything about these. they were even better the next day. next time i would put a little less cocoa"
"It was like I was eating thick lump of choc. I didn't like it at all and will not make it again."
"I made these brownies using Splenda. They were awful! They did not grow. I use splenda many times without any trouble. I think some ingredients were left out.jrepel"
"I agree with the above comments. Made these and they seemed like they needed more sugar or something. Not tasty at all and we were disappointed as we are trying to find a good recipe to use that is low in fat etc. but yet tastes good for my husband's heart.Debbie"
"I made these without the walnuts and with Splenda instead of sugar. They were awful!!Rebecca"
