I bookmarked this recipe the other day thinking I'd give it a try. So while I can't vouch for it passing a taste test, it might be something worth looking at :

Walnut & Date Brownies with Chiptole Ganache

2 cups walnut pieces
1 cup cocoa
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp chipotle powder
pinch coarse salt
2 cups Medjool dates, pitted (Do not substitute these for the drier, smaller ones)
1/2 cup dried figs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp Agave nectar (or honey)

1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup plus a bit more, chopped dark chocolate
1/4 tsp chipotle powder
1 tbsp Agave nectar (or honey)

Click on the link to get the how-to instructions!

i have been having moderate success in baking low fat, sugar free. mostly fruit muffins . i eat them both for dessert and for breakfast. had a blue berry muffin this a.m. i used splenda brown instead of the white sugar. they do have a 1/4 cup of canola oil. i think i can sub. unsweetened applesauce. just didn't have any. if you would like this recipe, p.m. me and i will send it. i have several more recipes to try. some with applesauce, and or yogurt. will let you know how it turns out.
