The BEST low-cal baked sweet (esp. brownies!!) recipe you know of...

Yeah, yeah I know the internet is saturated with low-cal sweets recipes. But one thing I hate is trying a new recipe and it being a big waste when the item turns out dry, tasteless, etc., so I'm looking for something that's been tested by the gourmand tastebuds here at Chow. You may ask, why on earth does she want to bake low-cal treats? What's the point? Well, here's the deal-- I'm in a "season of joblessness" currently, but have always been too busy to bake because of my job/school obligations. Now I'm trying to learn how to bake in my copious spare time, but I am also on a diet. I've been making full-fat stuff for weeks now and giving it away for the most part, but I want to make something I can enjoy.

I can get pretty much any ingredient, although I prefer to use real sugar, (not because I don't value other sweeteners, but because it becomes expensive to have so many when I use them so rarely) but other sweetener-based recipes are welcome. I define low-cal as 200 or less cals a serving. I'm not an ascetic! If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
