Ingredients

1-1/4 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter or margarine
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup cholesterol-free egg substitute
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup low-fat buttermilk
3 cups powdered sugar, sifted
1/3 cup orange juice, apple juice or fat free milk
Food coloring (optional)

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 15x10x1-inch jelly-roll pan with heavy-duty foil, extending foil over edges. Spray foil with nonstick cooking spray. Combine granulated sugar, butter and cocoa powder in large saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until butter is melted. Remove from heat.
  2. Cool sugar mixture 5 minutes. Stir in egg substitute. Add vanilla, baking soda and baking powder; mix well. Alternately add flour and buttermilk, stirring until well blended after each addition. Spread into prepared pan. Bake 20 to 22 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
  3. Cool completely. Use foil to lift brownie out of pan. Remove foil; place brownie on cutting board. Cut in shapes with 2- to 3-inch animal shaped cookie cutters. Place on wire rack over waxed paper.
  4. Combine powdered sugar and orange juice in small bowl. Tint with food coloring, if desired. Spread over brownies. Decorate as desired. Let stand about 20 minutes or until dry.
