Low-Point Shamrock O'Brownie

Yum
As luck would have it, you can enjoy this very moist brownie for only 1.3 points per piece. I don't think leprechauns even get that lucky. :) The recipe called this delicious dessert a cake but it's just too moist and dense, like a soft chewy brownie. With one teaspoon of frosting on each piece, it's still less than 2 points per piece! Bake and share this "green" brownie dessert, and no-one will want to pinch you this St. Patrick's Day.


Low-Point Shamrock O'Brownie
Ingredients:
- 1 1/2 cups Splenda sugar substitute
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce
- 1 Tbs white vinegar
- 1 cup whole cultured buttermilk
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp. green food coloring
- Betty Crocker Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting, optional
Combine eggs, sugar, applesauce, and vinegar in a bowl. Mix well. Sift flour, soda, and salt together. Alternating the buttermilk and flour, add them both to the egg mixture a little at a time, mixing well after each addition. Blend in vanilla and food coloring. Pour into lightly greased 9-inch by 13-inch glass cake pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cool. Add one teaspoon of frosting to each piece, if desired.
