Mmmm... Brownies

Growing up, our go-to family dessert was always chocolate cherry brownies. They made their appearance at almost every birthday and pretty much every special event. 

They were our celebration.

The recipe was something my mom found, I think on the side of a Devil's Food cake box, a long, long time ago.

Imagine my surprise when I found a lightened up version here.

I'm intrigued.

I'm just so worried that the lighter version will disappoint.

And then, will they even be worth it?

Should I try them Weight Watchers style? Or stick with the original?

It's not like I eat them every day or anything. Although I might, if they were around.

and p.s. you might be thinking, "ewwww, gross. cherries in brownies." but, um, don't knock it until you've tried it.

and FYI... I totally converted Husband, who is the king of "ewwww, gross".

Can't hurt to try! I've been on a kick of baking from scratch and sneaking healthy stuff in since the hubs is opposed to healthy. I mix in wheat flour in place of some of the white flour. I add flax meal to pretty much everything. It's amazing how good the adaptations can be! Let us know how it turns out!

I would try it! If it is not worth it, don't do it again. Thankfully you get 35 weekly points! That way if you can't find a lighter version you like, it is okay to treat yourself to the real thing every once in a while.

I'm drooling over the title of this blog. Is it possible to get fatter just from reading about delicious food?

I say try it, see what happens. Maybe don't make as many as you would. Do half the receipe or something?
