The recipe calls for me to melt butter and chocolate together as a base for a brownie layer, but I'd like to substitute something healthier in for the butter. What should I do?What do I do for this brownie recipe?
Unsweetened applesauce. It does change the consistency of the brownies a bit, but I'm sure they'll still be great. I made a box of brownie mix this weekend using egg whites and applesauce and they turned out delicious.
Otherwise you could substitute a lower fat margarine, like Brummel and BrownWhat do I do for this brownie recipe?

Don' eat the brownies if youre that concerned. There is a reaosn recipes call for certain items. You porbably could use margarine, but i would change a lot of differnet thing about the recipe, such as liquid contents etc. Just use the butter, then cut the slices smaller
well first of all, if ur gonna splurge and HAVE the brownies, then u might as well eat them as they are intended!!!
so go for it and add that butter
and if ur REALLY that concerned, then cut down the butter just a smidge.
Forget it. If you want the brownies to taste good, follow the directions. Brownies are not a health food. Eat salad instead of brownies if you are worried about eating healthy.
Uh, hash oil? Just kidding. There is no such thing as a healthy brownie.
REAL butter has vitamin A and calcium in it ... Brownies are meant to be a treat - not dinner, so use the butter
