You might try a smaller piece of a really great brownie.
Just a little of the good stuff is the way to go.

Hi everyone!

Brownies are my absolute weakness- and I simply can't live without them!
I was wondering if anyone had seen or tried a really good brownie recipe that was <100cal for a serving (and also delicious!).

Thanks so much!!

Abi :)


I have used the box mixes and substituted unsweetened applesauce for the oil. They come out at exactly 100 calories each.

Take your existing brownie recipe
1 cup of oil called for (butter, margarine, olive oil, vegetable oil,etc roughly 2000 calories)
replace / substitute ALL of that on a 1:1 basis with Apple sauce or canned pumpkin
Apple sauce 200 calories, only 10% of what the oil gives
Pumpkin 1 cup = 100 calories... 5% of what the oil gives calorie wise.

That alone saves a good chunk of calories and the applesauce / pumpkin does the same thing for the recipe the oil was.

I use a normal brownie recipe from the Edmonds baking/cookbook here in New Zealand.
All I do it replace the sugar for splenda and I only add about half the reccommended chocolate,
I also have experimented using wholemeal flour instead of white flour, but it is up to you.

I would suggest to just experiment and try out different things.
I love baking and I love making brownies from scratch, I just cut them up in nice small portions
and freeze them. That way when I want to eat them I cannot be bothered to defrost them, and I wont eat them.
I do normally take one to work that will defrost in my lunchbox and is ready to eat during my break,
just so I have something yummy and sweet to enjoy during the day without feeling the urge to go to the vending machine :)

Feel free to message me for the recipe if you want to use mine

Fiber One brownies are pretty good and not a bad snack option.
