it's great you found something that works for you that you like. emoticon

i like their chocolate chip cookie brownies the best. (of course, i really liek regualr brownie too.) i also like the fiber one chewy protein bars. i don't have them all the time, but they are convenient for me at times.

my 12 year old daughter likes the brownies-which surprised me. she can't have the usual chewy or crunchy granola bars she used to take for lunch because of her braces. Sometimes i put one of the fiber one brownies in her lunch instead of the usual little debbie snack.

I love the fiber one brownies when I'm desperate for something sweet. I don't eat them often but they're delicious when you're craving chocolate.

I'm going to try those black bean brownies!!

They have quite a bit of added sugar although not much considering they're a "dessert". They also have palm oil and a ton of perservatives. Not for me.

I make black bean brownies. They're really simple and the texture is amazing. You blend black beans, unsweetened cocoa powder, olive oil, egg whites, vanilla, baking soda and a sweetner of choice (natural or sub, I use a little bit of splenda/brown sugar blend). And then bake for 25-30 mins.

Take your focus off the Marshmallow.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

I like them too, the brownie and the chocolate chip one. I keep them in my desk when I get that chocolate craving!

I like the "cookie bar" version of them... the one that's light colored with chocolate chips. But yeah the regular brownie wasn't my favorite, pretty dry.

I've tried them and they're not too bad. It's the Chicory Root that upsets my stomach, though. Sadly, I've never had good luck with anything that uses that as a fiber additive. It's all about what finding works for you, though.

I did an amazing set of brownies not long ago using pureed pumpkin instead of oil... it was SO yummy!

I highly recommend spinach brownies.

Blech. I had one the other day, and honestly couldn't finish it. I threw it away unfinished. So dry and tasteless.

I'd rather cut a smaller portion of the real thing. ;)
