Has anyone tried using sugar instead of Splenda? Do you use the same amount and how is the flavor? Submitted by:

Yes I have tried this and several others like it. They all taste wonderful due to the cocoa - yum! Terrific way to get fiber into your diet. I always add toasted, chopped pecans. Submitted by:

I used white sugar instead of splenda since I'm not a big fan of sugar substitutes. These came out really moist, and surprisingly good! I used 1 tbs. of vanilla and plan to use more cocoa powder next time. Great recipe! Submitted by:

Not bad at all! Super moist! I added 1/2 cup semi-sweet morsels and about 1/3 cup chopped walnuts. I also used sugar instead of artificial but reduced it by half. Perfect for my chocolate cravings! Submitted by:

I didn't have Splenda or coffee so I added 2 tbsp water in place of the coffee and added 1/2 c sugar in place of the Splenda - they're different, but it works! Submitted by:

Hmm I haven't tried this recipe yet, but I'm thinking of making this an ultimate protein bar by using only egg whites, adding 2 scoops of protein powder, substituting splenda for xylitol, and using applesauce instead of canola oil. Submitted by:

These might be guiltless, but I much prefer the single serve brownie. I did not find these sweet enough and did not like the spongy texture. Would not make again, fiber or not. Sorry. Submitted by:

I was skeptical at first, but I am so glad I tried them. These were really good. I used regular sugar instead of splenda, because splenda always gives me a nasty aftertaste, but that didn't change the carb and cal too much and it's still a lot healthier than regular brownies. Will be making again. Submitted by:

I made these brownies for my bootcamp class last day party. And they loved it. I made a couple of substitutions. I used molasses and a little bit of brown sugar instead of Splenda and I added walnuts, cinnamon and a couple of dark chocolate pieces. Everyone loved it. Will use all egg white next time Submitted by:

They are baking as I write this...but I can say so far that the batter looked & tasted oh so wonderful.
However I tweeked it. I used 1/2 c cocoa, added 1 tsp cinnamon, 2 tsp stevia with 1/2 c splenda. I only had 3 eggs so add 1/2 cup greek yogurt & 1 scoop of soy protein powder. waiting for result

This is good. I shaved some calories by substituting applesauce for the oil and I used regular sugar.I also added an extra TBSP of cocoa. I'm gonna make this instead of regular brownies. For the HB I will add frosting, but at least it is healthier than the regular brownies. Very moist. Submitted by:

Made these with sugar, since I don't do fake sweeteners, and added cinnamon. They were good, for me personally, I needed a bit more richness, so maybe I'd up the cocoa and add vanilla next time. Very easy, texture was great, and love that they're relatively guiltless. Submitted by:

Surprisingly very good. I added more coffee instead of water, used more cocoa, fresh black beans, coconut oil and organic sugar instead of splenda. It tastes more like a cake, but very yummy especially with a little powdered sugar! Submitted by:

I added extra cocoa instead of the coffee, and I throw in walnuts. The extra chocolate really helped, and I can't taste the beans! I used real sugar, but next time I'll put more in to compensate for the extra chocolate. I LOVE that these don't have flour, and you can't taste the difference!! Submitted by:

I was definitely skeptical about this recipe, but I just made them tonight and they are delicious!! I didn't have any Splenda, so I used regular sugar. Next time I'll use Splenda and add some dark chocolate chips. I'm already excited!!! Thanks so much for sharing! Submitted by:

I loved the recipe- getting extra protein in my daily intake is important, as well as for my kids. I used applesauce instead of oil. I found that these were not as good as what I was expecting- very unsweetened. Quick fix is to have a with coffee and a tablespoon of lowfat vanilla yogurt. -Thank Submitted by:

I was part way through the recipe when I realized it called for a food processor. I just mashed the beans & used an electric mixer instead. I used organic, unrefined sugar in place of Splenda. Next time I think I'll try honey. I tried them w/ Greek vanilla yogurt.They satisfied my sweet tooth! Submitted by:

I made them in a cupcake pan and added a few chocolate chips to them. They are very good! Cakey and that's the way I like my brownies. My daughter hated them ( she saw me make them) and my son said they were the best brownies ever ( and he didn't) Very healthy way to get fiber and protein! Submitted by:

I appreciate the creativity of this recipe, but we are disappointed. I used extra cocoa, sugar and vanilla; which did help, and they ARE moist, but NOT tasty. My daughters and I were so curious and glad we tried them, but won't be making them again. Submitted by:

I added some ground flax seed. and used capachino mix instead of coffee. They smelled like brownies and looked like brownies but did not taste as sweet as they should or have the same texture. not bad tough and for only 1 ww point a serving you cant complain. I plan to pair it with low fat ice cream Submitted by:

Mmmm. Love beans and love coffee...that was probably a good start...Oh yes then there's the chocolate. These tasted really good to me...don't care for the really sweet stuff anyway. Some splenda taste, though..might do half splenda half sugar or the brown sugar baking blend next time. Submitted by:

My brother could tell there was something "off" about them. Wouldn't eat them. So... I made several adjustments. 5 tbsp cocoa, as recommended by previous reviewers. I did not use splenda, but .25 cup sugar. Should have used the entire .5 cup because brownies were not sweet enough. Would make again. Submitted by:

Enjoyed them. Changed recipe slightly, used some eggbeaters in place of half the eggs, Special Dark cocoa, and some cinnamon. This is low carb recipe, is it not? Why are some people changing it and using boxed brownie mix? Defeats the purpose. Same with subbing sugar for Splenda... Submitted by:
