      I made these brownies today & they are terrible... They were maybe a quarter inch thick & they tasted awful. Why is there no Baking powder to make them rise??? Would not recommend!!!

      Anyone know how many banana date-nut cookies to make out of that batch so that they'll be one point?

      Thank you so much for posting these :). My hubby actually goes back and forth using the Weight Watchers method between others that he wants to try, and he's got one heck of a sweet tooth, so this is an awesome reference. There's only so much sugar-free Jello he can withstand, lol...

      for anyone who is looking at this after 12-1-2010, the points values are probably NOT the same as listed in these recipes. I suggest using the WW Recipe calculator to reconfigure using the NEW Points Plus program.

      I tried the 1 point brownies and loved them! I whisked my egg whites until they came so a very soft peak and also added 1 tsp of baking powder so that the brownies would rise a little bit.

      So nice a fudgy! Just like a brownie should be :-D

      I have been a member of weight watchers for about seven months and lost about 41 pounds and working on many more pounds to lose. Weight Watchers is a lifesaver for me and would not have it any other way. Thanks Weight Watchers!

      I did weight watchers in Oakland maybe 9 years ago and lost 20 pounds. I have lost weight here in France simply because there is not the culture of having something to eat all the time wherever you are. I would like to lose another 10 pounds, maybe I should try some of these sweets because in France there is a bakery on every corner and the sweets are not expensive. Either I forgoe them all and then have a fall and a binge or I try some of your recipes. We'll see.
