Healthy, Fat Free Fudge Brownie Recipe – How To Do it

Ok, so the key to making these super amazing, low calorie brownies involves two things:

  • No Pudge Fudge Brownie Mix
  • 1 15 oz can of pure pumpkin

And here’s how you do it…

The No Pudge Fudge Brownie Mix is truly one of the greatest finds ever. Many health food stores carry a variety of the mixes, but you can also order it online by clicking here: No Pudge Fat Free Fudge Brownie Mix, Original.

Now, once you’ve scored yourself some No Pudge Brownie Mix, you are simply going to follow the instructions on the box, with just one small recipe adjustment. Simply swap out the yogurt that the recipe calls for and use canned pumpkin instead. By doing this, you are significantly increasing the fiber, vitamin and antioxidant content of the brownie, without compromising the flavor. And if you are not a fan of pumpkin, DON’T WORRY — you cannot taste the pumpkin at all in this brownie recipe. The chocolate taste overwhelms it, so the pumpkin is pretty much tasteless.

Another benefit to this is that the canned pumpkin makes the brownies so chewy and moist! You will seriously be in brownie heaven with this phenomenally delicious dish.

If you are feeling adventurous, try the canned pumpkin swap in these other delicious flavor varieties of the No Pudge Brownie Mixes!

    I’ve never tried the brownies with Pumpkin I always use black beans.
    Using pumpkin sounds good too.
    I also use pumpkin in spice cake mix.
    A good dessert for 2 or 3 points sure helps end the evening.

  2. Tried these yesterday….. Tasted the mix before cooking…. disgusting… so I was a bit worried….. but after they baked….. they were delicious…… I put a spoonful of frozen whip topping on the top and it was almost as good as a hot fudge cake…… Thanks

  3. I tried this recipe and at first… I hated it. I ate some while it was still warm from the oven, and I could totally taste the pumpkin. I almost threw the whole batch out. But I wanted to give it another shot. So I cut it up and put in the fridge. I tried it the next day and it was soooooooo good! Didn’t taste the pumpkin at all. The points plus fornthenoriginal recipe is 3 pts, so I am thinking this must be 2 pts. Still, 3 pts is still good for a rich fudge brownie! Thank you!

    • I calculated the PP it’s 3pp now, not 2, still good for a whole brownie! I’m making them tomorrow, can’t wait to try them and thanks for the tip on putting them in the fridge first Deebrio!

  4. Thanks for this brilliant recipe! I tried it yesterday after finding the mix at Whole Foods. I am totally excited about this recipe because these are SO good and good for you. FYI, I put some in the freezer to save and out of curiosity I tried one frozen today and it was amazing! It reminded me of a really good chocolate ice cream bar and it was about the same texture as a chocolate fudge ice cream bar. These are also great served hot with a little ready whip (zero points per serving).

    • This one is still based on the old WW Points system. Hopefully I'll get around to converting it soon!

      • Tina Hoskins

        Just found your site and Love your recipes but I’m following the old ww system so if you change the points to Points plus, please also include the old points system to for us who like the old points program better, thanks,

  5. Not a fan of the brownies with the pumpkin..the flavor isn't good and the texture is borderline rubbery. I'm going to give them a shot with the yogurt instead.

  6. This is NOT the real picture of this recipe for healthy brownies. There is no oil or butter in the recipe, so it can't rise to the top to make that perfect flaky brownie crust.

  7. I have tried this both ways, once with the pumpkin and another with the yogurt. I am not a fan of pumpkin, but if it couldn't be tasted, I was willing to give it a try. The batch with the pumpkin was so gooey and I could definitely taste the pumpkin. The batch with the yogurt turned out much better than the pumpkin and tasted better, in my opinion. I'm all for the added nutrients, but for this one, I'll stick with the yogurt.

  8. Jut wanted to let you know I made this recipe today. It was so moist and had such a rich chocolate flavor. I love pumpkin in my recipes, although I'm a pumpkin lover I didn't taste it. Which wouldn't have mattered to me anyway as I expected to taste pumpkin since I was using a whole can of pumpkin.

    Once again I gotta say Thank You and please continue to keep doing what you do.

    GREAT JOB AS USUAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. THIS IS TERRIBLE! YOU CAN ASSOLUTELY TASTE THE PUMPKIN IN IT! THANKS TO YOU I JUST WASTED A PERFECTLY GREAT BOX OF NO PUDGE BROWNIES BECAUSE I TRUSTED YOU AND USED PUMPKIN! YUCK!!! I would rather just eat a bowl of shredded wheat for Fiber!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Nice attitude when this is a fantastic and free site.

    • L. A. Henderson

      wow!  what a child!  grow up!  no one forced you to make anything you didn’t want to make!  man… go eat a bowl of shredded wheat and shut up! 

    • You 'll want to use 1 15 oz can of pure pumpkin. You can also make it with fat free yogurt (as the recipe on the box calls for). Either way, they are super yummy and will have just 2 Weight Watchers Points per serving.

    • You want to use pure pumpkin for this one. I used the Libby's can that's available at most supermarkets. Enjoy!!

  10. Can't wait to get my hands on this brownie mix! yumm!!!

  11. I made these with the pumpkin but I didn't like the final texture and flavor of the brownie. After reading the box, I realized that making the recipe as directed using fat free vanilla yogurt would also yield a 2 point brownie. I love the added nutrition the pumpkin adds, but it doesn't change the point value. I'm going to try making these again using the yogurt to see if the flavor and texture are improved.

    Very exited about these, they turned out wonderfully! I love using pumpkin in recipes, home canned and store bought, so I knew these would at the very least be more nutritious and chewy. I'm so happy you had this on your site, I never would have known about this brownie mix and now my mom is on a mission to get to Trader Joes to buy up their supply! :)

  13. The box says 12 servings made in an 8×8 inch baking dish. =)
