Julix Bakes Brownies

I am headed to the beach next week, so this guest post from Julia Doctoroff is super timely

Since my blog is on hiatus, I decided to contribute to the lovely housebunny’s blog.

Many of you know that I’ve traded Joya greasy noodles for the goodness of Weight Watchers. Since I love to bake, I decided to try out a strange-sounding recipe I found on the WW website:

Low-fat Brownies

1/2 cup lentils
2 cup(s) water
1 cup(s) fat-free egg substitute
1 3/4 cup(s) sugar
1 cup(s) unsweetened applesauce
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup(s) whole-grain wheat flour, or whole wheat flour
1/2 cup(s) unsweetened cocoa
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp table salt
3 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips


Rinse lentils and combine with water in a pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until tender, 40 minutes. Remove from heat and drain any excess liquid.

In a bowl, beat together egg substitute and sugar. Add applesauce, vanilla, flour, both cocoas and salt to egg substitute mixture. Stir in cooked lentils and chocolate chips.

Press mixture into a 9 X 13-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350°F for 35 minutes. Cool and cut into 24 pieces.

It turns out kind of like a lentily fudge. You can’t really taste the lentils and it is VERY chocolatey. I give it high marks, especially if you are trying to get into beach body shape.
