Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

To-Die-For Brownies with Prunes

Here’s a great low-calorie brownie recipe that uses prunes instead of oil.  Each brownie counts as 1 fruit and 1/2 fat.  You won’t believe how good it is – very moist and rich. 

I got this years ago from Jenny Craig.  You won’t find this in their online recipe database.  But you can here!

Fudgy Brownies

  • 2/3 c. (4 oz) pitted prunes
  • 3 T water
  • non-stick cooking spray
  • 4 oz. unsweetened chocolate
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1 c sugar
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1 1/2 t vanilla
  • 1/2 c. flour

Preheat over to 350 degrees. 

Combine prunes and water in a food processor or blender.  Blend until pureed.  Coat an 8-inch square baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.  Cut chocolate into 1-inch pieces and place in microwave-proof bowl.  Microwave until chocolate is melted.  Remove from microwave;  set aside. 

In mixing bowl combine all ingredients except flour; blend thoroughly.  Mix in flour.  Spread batter in prepared pan. 

Bake about 30 minutes until springy to the touch about 2 inches around edges.  Cool on rack.  Cut into 24 brownies.


Also to consider.

Maintaining ones health is one of the basic requirements of leading a prosperous life. One must take a lot of care in what one eats as is said, “you are what you eat”. Taking a healthy meal which fulfills the body’s requirement of all the vitamins like vitamin e and vitamin d3 is a must in keeping oneself fit and fine. The vitamin d levels can also be obtained from sitting in the sun as the sun rays synthesize vitamin d for human consumption. Several advertisements target health conscious people through showing vitamin water commercial to direct them towards the vitamin shoppe.

  1. CoCo,

    I just noticed this recipe. It looks great. I will have to try it. I just won’t tell my DH that it’s prunes or he wouldn’t eat it. On the other hand, there would be more for me.
