LIGHT VERSION! I wasn't looking for it, since I would substitute the oil for applesauce, eggs for egg whites, and cream cheese for light cream cheese... but awesome! They're amazing. Made them for my girlfriend's birthday and she's trying to lose weight so I didn't want to sabotage her completely. Definitely give this a try... I did add a TSP of vanilla extract to the cream cheese mixture (we love vanilla around here) and I don't think it would be as good had I not added that, probably a bit bland? My husband wants me to try doing an espresso brownie next time (with granulated coffee, add to water) so maybe I will!


Not sure what went wrong with other reviewers but I made this recipe exactly to the recipes specs and it turned out brilliantly. There was definitely enough cheesecake filling to cover the top of the 8x13 pan I used and it turned out exactly like the photo provided. This was very well received by my Hubby and kids and it will definitely be used again. So tasty - so velvety. The one thing I could say to reviewers is maybe it was worth a 30 second shot in the Microwave with your cheese if it was clumpy??? Seriously tasty!


I was not impressed with this. The cream cheese part was very difficult to spread, it clumped more than anything and the brownie part came out with a VERY wierd, chewy, rather disgusting texture. I've never baked with applesauce before so I'm not sure if that's why but I have never had anything turn out like that before. I won't use this recipe again.
