When she’s not wheeling and dealing as Diet.com’s Business Director, Meredith Oliver, aka Savvy Snacker, is sampling and reporting on the best snacks for the weight coin conscious. We think she enjoys the sampling part a bit more than the writing!

Found a healthy and delicious dessert and wanted to share! Well, I should say healthier than the original recipe that will leave you with extra calories to sweat off at the gym. (NOTE - Please do not mistake these as "healthy" - but just better for you than the original recipe.)

The guilt-full recipe:
blonde brownies
2/3 cup margarine, melted
2 cups brown sugar (packed)
2 large eggs
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)

The guilt-less recipe:

1/3 cup of butter, melted (take out those trans-fats by using butter!)
2 cups brown sugar (packed)
4 large egg whites
2 cups of flour - 1 cup of regular, 1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
2/3 cup of chocolate chips
1/2 cup of pecans (if you can't live without them)

Sift flour, brown sugar, soda and salt together. Add nuts to dry ingredients. Melt butter and add sugar and 1 teaspoon hot water. Mix in egg whites and vanilla. Then combine the flour mixture into the wet mixture, a small amount at a time, mixing well. Spread in a 9 x 9 x 2 pan which has been greased. Sprinkle chocolate chips over the top.

Bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes.
