The brownies taste terrible!

Cathy on January 20, 2017:

I fixed the brownies yesterday & they were maybe a 1/4" thick. They tasted better when I licked the bowl!!

Cathy on January 19, 2017:

I made these brownies today & they are terrible... They were maybe a quarter inch thick & they tasted awful. Why is there no Baking powder to make them rise??? Would not recommend!!!

Jessie on April 23, 2013:

Made the Sugar-Free Chewy Chocolate Brownies and frankly they suck. They have an odd texture and taste like articifical sweetener with a errible after taste. Sorry, but dont try this recipe.

Sandra on January 29, 2011:

Anyone know how many banana date-nut cookies to make out of that batch so that they'll be one point?

loves2cook from Portland, OR on January 24, 2011:

Thank you so much for posting these :). My hubby actually goes back and forth using the Weight Watchers method between others that he wants to try, and he's got one heck of a sweet tooth, so this is an awesome reference. There's only so much sugar-free Jello he can withstand, lol...

debisavannah on December 20, 2010:

for anyone who is looking at this after 12-1-2010, the points values are probably NOT the same as listed in these recipes. I suggest using the WW Recipe calculator to reconfigure using the NEW Points Plus program.

TurtleDog on December 17, 2010:

Thanks for this info! There's probably about 30 people at work on weight watchers since our company sponsors a program. I'll share these recipes with some of those. Cool stuff... I voted UP. useful

WizeDogz on August 19, 2010:

kazeemjames01 on August 19, 2010:

Great article.

alexia_paras101 on August 11, 2010:

I tried the 1 point brownies and loved them! I whisked my egg whites until they came so a very soft peak and also added 1 tsp of baking powder so that the brownies would rise a little bit.

So nice a fudgy! Just like a brownie should be :-D

pier on July 25, 2010:

i tried the date nut and oats cookies didn't think i'd like them, after my first try i ate about a dozen of them, sprinking some icing sugar sure made them into sweets fit for my sweet teeth neighbours

Maddie, thank you so much for putting together these hubs. I am bookmarking them for the near future. My husband and I are about to join WW (I just had my third baby), but I love to bake. (heh! Maybe that's why I need to join WW.)

Anywho, I look forward to trying some of these you listed as well as the ones from the WW website. Thank you!!

The Banana Date Nute cookies sound great. Thanks.

Keira H on November 23, 2008:

I cann't believe that Chocolate Brownies is possible without sugar. Chocolate Brownies is my favorite pastry. I"ll obviously try it out.

constance moore on September 29, 2008:

I have been a member of weight watchers for about seven months and lost about 41 pounds and working on many more pounds to lose. Weight Watchers is a lifesaver for me and would not have it any other way. Thanks Weight Watchers!

francetales from Toulouse, France on April 15, 2008:

I did weight watchers in Oakland maybe 9 years ago and lost 20 pounds. I have lost weight here in France simply because there is not the culture of having something to eat all the time wherever you are. I would like to lose another 10 pounds, maybe I should try some of these sweets because in France there is a bakery on every corner and the sweets are not expensive. Either I forgoe them all and then have a fall and a binge or I try some of your recipes. We'll see.
