5 Points® for 1 brownie with frostingThe Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener (sugar substitute) that is used in this recipe is zero points. Please keep in mind-the point value can vary depending on the brand of sugar substitute you choose to use. The Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener has a 1:1 ratio to real sugar. If you use a different sugar substitute you will want to use the equivalent to real sugar that is recommended on back of the sugar substitute package.I use Land O’ Lakes light butter made with canola oil. You can use another light brand of butter but be sure to use butter and NOT margarine or “I can’t believe it’s not butter.” The light butter plays a key role in the texture and in the baking of these brownies.
