Save Your Money: No Pudge Brownie Mix

I am always on the hunt for healthy alternatives for our tasty favorites. I came across No Pudge Fudge Brownie Mix and was instantly drawn to it because of the "Just add yogurt" claim on the box. I love yogurt and I love brownies so I had to try this.

After looking at the box further I realized that one serving, which is one brownie, is still 110 calories and that is before you even put in the yogurt. I do like that the mix uses pure cane sugar, wheat flour and dutch cocoa (yum) so it was still worth a shot. It turns out that the taste was not up to par with my expectations and I was rather disappointed. The taste was just a bit flat, not as chocolaty as I hoped.

I mean a healthy brownie -- Who did I think I was kidding?

Buy No Pudge ($3.35) online, or in your local health food store, and try it for yourself. If you love it, let me know below!

I made them with vanilla yogurt and I loved them. They get dry and gross faster than other brownies, so they only last for 24-48 hrs even if wrapped up well. They are very very chewy!

I tried these on Sunday but I made them into cupcakes. I added lowfat organic vanilla yogurt and used a reduced sugar frosting. They came out fabulous. Very fudgey and chocolatey, very tasty. My entire family enjoyed them. One thing I would do next time, is spray that paper cups with non-stick spray as the paper did stick a bit.

I tried ou the Raspberry Brownie Mix last night and my housemates and I loved it. I used non-fat vanilla yogurt. They taste pretty sweet, and for something that is fat-free and chocolate-y, I'm in!

i really like the brownies - i've used vanilla and cherry yogurt in them before and it adds something tasty! i would recommend cooking them for a little less time than the package says

i tried them too and was also not impressed. if i am going to eat a brownie, i am going to eat a brownie. If i want yogurt, then i want yogurt. however, i will say that the pumpkin idea totally sounds good.

I tried these a while ago. I would recommend trying the original recipe. I've tried both original and cappuccino. (The latter one tasting a kind of bitter). I agree they are not fabulous but they're not awful either. The taste falls somewhere in the middle. I'd recommend eating a regular full flavor brownie and just a smaller portion of it. (if you can!) :) "Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level and beat you with experience."

I saw these at the grocery store, too, and was surprised at how many calories they still had. Also, Betty Crocker or someone has Low-Fat brownies. I bought them, made them, and realized there are a ton more servings per box than regular brownies. You can cut the fat and calories on anything if it's a smaller serving!

I eat these al the time! But instead of Yogurt, try adding a can of pumpkin (not pie mix, just plain pumpkin) to the mix. Makes them SUPER moist, and adds tons of fiber. Pumpkin is super good for you and doesn't add too much bad stuff. I know it sounds weird but seriously try again! And I always have to alter the cooking time on these a bit so they turn out right, I usually have to cook them 10 min longer. Seriously try the pumpkin instead of yogurt. Awesomeness

I suggest trying the recipe at the link below - they are delightful warm with a little bit of light cool whip, and it keeps you from eating a whole pan! http://shadesofjaim.com/recipes/biacc.html

I actually really like these brownies. I too laughed at them when I first heard about them and my boyfriend pretty much refused to try them but even he likes them! They're definetly not as decadent as "fatty brownies" but they are still pretty darn good IMO.

I was actually pretty impressed with their brownies when I made them. They don't stay moist very long, though.

Their chocolate ice cream bars are great though. I don't eat real ice cream or sugar or basically anything "sinful" (i know i know...fascist), and these are definitely worth the 60 calories.
