  1. I should have known better than to click into this…now I am really hungry! ;)

    I loved the calorie count and healthy look of these brownies, so I made them for Shabbos today. They are delicious! (Yes, even though they’re for Shabbos, I took a tiny taste.) If I cut them into 16 servings, as the recipe directs, they will be quite small. That’s fine for me, but my husband and son would balk! Also, I subbed in almond meal (ground almonds) for the 1/3 cup chopped almonds, and I used whole wheat pastry flour for the whole wheat flour. (And, shhhh, don’t tell, I threw in 1 tablespoon ground flax seed!)

  3. i am on a diet and i like tha tthis recipe has the nutritional values with it and it seems to fit in my diet. it looks so yummy!!! cant wait to make them!

    delicious and so rich!

  8. Made these for shabbat and decided to take a small taste…these brownies are soooo good im not sure they are going to make it to the shabbat table!

  9. Fabulous! Made these using sugar substitute for dietary concerns. Omitted almonds and added few more chips. Brought this to dinner last evening and received great reviews!
    So much better than a mix!

    Thank you again! Your recipes are so easy to make and turn out so good. I made a few substitutions but you’d never know. I used only 1/3 cup sugar and brownies still tasted sugary. I used grapeseed oil instead of canola, fine. And I only had oat and spelt flours so I used those. With your measurements and guidance they came out amazing. Ty!

  11. I have made this recipe multiple times and it is perfect. Every time! I actually cut. Sugar in half and it still turns out great. First I used 2/3 the amount, found it was still plenty sweet, and the went down to 1/2 and it is perfect. Lots of happy mouths confirm this :) . Also – sometimes I bake them in a muffin tin for a fancy presentation. I have also on occasion replaced a few tablespoons of the oil with applesauce (I grab my 1/2 cup measure, spoon in a few TB of applesauce, and the top up the rest of it with oil).
