Classic Fudge-Walnut Brownies

These fudge-walnut brownies are so decadent tasting, you won't believe that they're lower in fat than traditional brownies.  To ensure a nice fudgy texture, take care not to overbake. Large chocolate chunks create big, luxurious pockets of melty chocolate in the brownies, but you can always substitute chocolate chips.
