Is there ever a bad time for chocolate? NOPE! Here's a bunch of HG-approved ways to get your brownie fix without inhaling tons of calories and fat grams. Read on...

 
  Brownie-rific Market Finds

From actual brownies to brownie mixes to things that just taste like brownies, we've got guilt-free options coming out of our ears!

Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownies
PER SERVING (1 brownie): 90 calories, 3g fat, 100 - 110mg sodium, 17 - 18g carbs, 5g fiber, 7 - 8g sugars, 1g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*

Want a cute, fudgy, single-serving brownie? Don't want to have to stare down and resist a whole panful? Lucky you! These brownies come in two drizzle-topped varieties -- Chocolate Fudge and Chocolate Peanut Butter. They're on the petite side -- perfect for satisfying a sweet craving without breaking the calorie bank. You can't beat a 90-calorie brownie fix!

 
  Vitalicious Deep & Velvety Chocolate VitaBrownies

PER SERVING (1 brownie): 100 calories, 2g fat, 105mg sodium, 25g carbs, 10g fiber, 10g sugars, 4g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*

Another entry in the pre-made, pre-portioned category, this treat is a longtime love of ours. Yes, you could just eat a chocolate-flavored VitaTop, but when you really wanna feel like you're eating a brownie (it's a mental thing), these are the way to go. And if you want to get really crazy, crack open Hungry Girl 200 Under 200 and flip to the recipe for Puddin'-Packed Caramel Brownie Blitz! So good. Look for these in the freezer aisle, or order 'em online.

 
 
 
  No Pudge! Fat Free Fudge Brownie Mix

PER SERVING (1/12 package, mix only): 110 calories, 0g fat, 100mg sodium, 28g carbs, 1g fiber, 22g sugars, 2g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*

It says it right on the front of the box -- "Just Add Yogurt!" That's all you need to do. OK, you need to put it in a pan and bake it too, but this is a super-simple way to get brownies with NO FAT. It's also all natural and certified kosher. Start with the Original, and then branch out to try the other varieties: Mint, Raspberry, and Cappuccino! P.S. Each prepared brownie (1/12th of a pan) made with fat-free vanilla yogurt has just 120 calories and (still) no fat.

 
  Betty Crocker Gluten Free Brownie Mix

PER SERVING (1/16 package, mix only): 110 calories, 2g fat, 60mg sodium, 24g carbs, 1g fiber, 18g sugars, 1g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*

Just because your body isn't down with gluten doesn't mean you need to live a brownie-free existence. And it also doesn't mean you have to accept gluten-free brownies with too much fat as a way of life. Pick up a box of this mix from our buddies at BC. Then follow the no-butter instructions, but use canned pure pumpkin in place of oil and fat-free liquid egg substitute instead of eggs!

 
 
 
  Caramel Nut Brownie Luna Bar

PER SERVING (1 bar): 180 calories, 6g fat, 160mg sodium, 26g carbs, 3g fiber, 13g sugars, 8g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*

For those times when you need a slightly substantial snack but, gosh darn it, you want something sweet and fudgy, this bar has got your back. Not only will it fill you up with good stuff, but also your taste buds will be doing the tango once they get a load of its amazing flavor.

 
  Corazonas Chocolate Brownie & Almonds Oatmeal Squares

PER SERVING (1 square): 180 calories, 7g fat, 110mg sodium, 27g carbs, 5g fiber, 11g sugars, 6g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*

Looking for something that tastes like a brownie but could justifiably be eaten for breakfast? Feast your eyes on these, people. We heart Corazonas bars in a big way -- they're packed with oats, dates (the fruit, not romantic outings), and other delicious things. And this choco-rific one is crazy-decadent. Yummm...
