"When this recipe came across my desk, I almost fell off my chair! Chocolate brownies in a diabetes cookbook?! We tested them and, not only do they work, but they're well within the guidelines for a diabetic meal plan. But what's my tried-and-true philosophy? Moderation is key!" - Art Ginsberg, a.k.a. Mr. Food

all-purpose flour 0.66 cup

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.


In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients except the fudge sauce; mix well, then spread half the batter in the baking dish. Top with the hot fudge sauce, then spread the remaining batter over the sauce.
