Healthier Brownies

100_1200A few years ago, I learned a Weight Watcher recipe that uses cake mix and pumpkin. The taste of the pumpkin cooks out but you get the added benefit that pumpkin is a vegetable making the recipe healthier for you.

I recently ran across this recipe for pumpkin brownies. I used a low-fat brownie mix with a can of pumpkin. I think they turned out pretty good. Plus, they had 78g. less of fat. They were thick and chewy. I threw mine in the fridge to prevent mold (an issue with using pumpkin) and they lasted over a week and half that way.

Two Ingredient Lemon Bars

Two ingredients lemon barsOne Fourth of July, my Grandma Fletcher mixed together some ingredients to make lemon bars. All the grandchildren loved them but Grandma could never duplicate her “no recipe” concoction. Although taste a little different, they are the closest thing that I have ever tried to that recipe. What’s even better is that this recipe contains only two ingredients. Enjoy!
