Servings 9


  • 2 cups of pretzels I used Rold Gold tiny twists, and measure them before crushing them
  • 1 Tbsp reduced fat margarine melted
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 2 egg whites 1/4 cup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 Tbsp mini chocolate chips
  • 2 Tbsp sugar free caramel topping
  • Pinch of sea salt


  • Preheat oven to 350F, spray a 9 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Crush your pretzels into a crumb, I placed in a bag and crushed with a heavy glass.
  • Sprinkle into the bottom of your baking dish, drizzle your melted margarine on top of pretzel crumbs.
  • In a bowl beat together your egg, egg whites, sugar and apple sauce for 2 minutes.
  • Stir in your vanilla, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and chocolate chips and mix well.
  • Very gently pour your brownie batter on to your pretzel crumbs, try to spread without messing up the crumbs too much, it's ok if some show through around the edges.
  • Pour your caramel sauce into a small zip lock bag, cut of tip of bag and drizzle on to brownie batter, top with a pinch of sea salt.
  • Bake in oven for 20-23 minutes.
  • Let cool then cut into 9 large brownies (you can cut them smaller and figure out points as they will be less)
  • Makes 9 brownies at 5 smart points each or 4 points plus (WW old point program)
