MaryM- don't know if these will work for you...but maybe.  I freeze them individually so I can pull one out when I need something chocolatey while trying to avoid full sugar sweets.  If you are not eating sugary things, then I think they are great.  But compare them to a regular brownie and no so good.

Not that I've noticed...but on my eating plan you should only eating 1/16th of the entire recipe and not on a daily basis.
