While browsing around on Pinterest.com, I came across a recipe for LOW FAT brownies... and all you need to make them is a can of pumpkin and a box of brownie mix! I knew greek yogurt could be substituted for oil and applesauce or bananas for eggs, but I never thought about using canned pumpkin to substitute for both. Using the canned pumpkin instead of oil and eggs makes these brownies waist-line friendly... and not to mention packed full of vitamin A and fiber (from the pumpkin)!
Sugar - 1g

A 100-calorie, sugar-free, delicious and nutritious brownie... well that's something to smile about! :)
