Review: Trader Joe's Reduced Guilt Brownies

Happy Thanksgiving, UFG'ers!  Do you have plans to stay healthy this holiday?  You should - and you CAN with today's review! These are pretty much my new favorite thing.
Life is busy as usual in the UFG household.  I've found a new doctor who is really sitting down and listening to me and we have a new plan of attack for Mission Why Can't Gaby Be UnFatty! I'm very excited to be going to Progressive Health of Delaware and appreciate their approach more than they know.

On to today's review.  These. Are. Awesome.  I made them into brownie bits for a book club meeting and they could not have come out better.  TWO INGREDIENTS! And - you can pronounce everything in the box mix!  There are even instructions for a single serving size.  Incredible. Instructions after the jump:

2/3 cup nonfat vanilla yogurt
1 box Reduced Guilt Brownie Mix

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine ingredients - mix until a THICK, shiny batter is achieved.

I put mine into a mini-muffin tin.  Perfect for portion control (and parties!).  Bake for about 25 mins and let cool.

Now - what's important to remember about these is that they are FAT FREE - not sugar free.  The first ingredient in the mix is sugar.  It's hard to get one without the other.  However, whole wheat flour and egg whites are among the other ingredients.  This is a really great product.  The brownies come out chewy and delish.  They were both bookclub approved and Mailman approved!
Here's the nutrition info on the box:

Happy happy Thanksgiving UFG'ers!  Have a safe, happy and HEALTHY holiday!!!!
