I'm Getting the Hang of This

I just wanted to share my story. I had a brownie mix in the cupboard that I'd bought to try another recipe with. It was the wrong kind, so it's been sitting in the cupboard for a while. This afternoon, I was feeling like something a little bit home baked and yummy. Chocolaty and yummy even. So, I thought I'd bake it up. Mmmmm. I looked at what the directions said to add: an egg, water and oil. "Hmmmm," I thought to myself, "I wonder how I can make this better for us?" I decided to put in liquid egg instead of a whole egg and then I thought I'd try using applesauce instead of oil. As I was checking the box for the cooking time, I noticed a note at the bottom. It said for a low fat version to use applesauce instead of oil. HOW COOL AM I??? I figured it out on my own and its what the box said to do. I AM getting the hang of this!

By the way...the brownies are super yummy. Chewy and soft and moist and chocolaty and only 2 points per piece.


  1. rock on 2 point chocolatly goodness.. my DH bought some mix on Wed and made them WITH ICING...I got 1/15th of the pan for 4 points-- so that was a much better plan.....your very cool on making them with the applesauce!!!

    Have a great day
