Low-fat Double Chocolate Brownies

This has been on my to-cook list since I first saw it and I can't believe I've been missing out for so long! This is a great recipe. The brownies came out beautiful and moist. Not too sweet but very rich and chocolate-y. And can you believe its low fat!! (well *lower* fat) Definitely a keeper. I struggle alot with eating so much sugar and saturated fats when I do my baking, so to know that low-fat recipes are possible is great. Although those high-fat recipes will keep coming! Moderation is the key, remember.  

Sunday Baking goes bananas this week! There was a bit of a banana theme running through some of the blogs this week so I decided to showcase all those uses for almost gone bananas.
