If you would rather not use sugar-substitute, simply delete it from the recipe. These brownie-like bars have a wonderful texture, too.

Prep: 20 minutes | Cook: 25 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes
  • 2/3 cup
    less-fat margarine, with 8 grams of fat per tablespoon
  • 1/3 cup
    fat-free half-and-half
  • 7 ounces
    unsweetened baking chocolate, chopped, (approximately 7 squares)
  • 1 1/2 cups
    granulated sugar
  • 1 cup
  • 2 large
    eggs, use higher omega-3 type, if available
  • 1/2 cup
    egg substitute
  • 1/2 cup
    whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup
    all-purpose white flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons
    vanilla extract
  • 1 cup
    walnut pieces
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly coat a 9 x 13-inch pan (or two 9-inch square baking pans) with canola spray. Set aside.

  2. Add the margarine and fat-free half-and-half to a medium nonstick saucepan and melt the butter, stirring constantly, over medium-low heat. Once the margarine is melted, remove the pan from the heat.
  3. Add the chopped baking chocolate to the melted butter, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until chocolate is completely melted. Add the sugar and sugar substitute and stir to blend well.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, stirring vigorously after each. Add egg substitute and stir to combine. Add the whole-wheat and white flours and stir to combine. Stir in the vanilla extract and walnuts.
  5. Pour batter into prepared baking pan(s) and bake for 23-25 minutes (20 minutes if using two pans). The brownies will still look somewhat soft and shiny. Remove from the oven and place on cooling rack.
