Splenda makes a brown sugar blend. Try replacing the brown sugar in this recipe with that. Use the generic version of Splenda to substitute for the regular sugar in this recipe also. Additionally, Hershey makes chocolate chips that are sugar-free that can be found at Walmart. Lastly, Atkins makes a low carb flour that could be used in place of the regular flour. Almost any recipe can be reworked to fit into a low fat or low carb diet if you tweak it.

Can't see that these are light just because you added egg substitute. They still have 1 1/2 cups of sugar between the brown and granulated and 1 1/2 sticks of margarine.

The chocolate chips are mini chips. Does that count? ;-)

This is one of those dishes thats just as good served over a bed of salad greens as it is over a bed of couscous, or well, over just about anything.
