Dark Chocolate Brownies

These brownies are not overly sweet, but they’ll satisfy even the most serious chocolate craving with zero guilt. They’re cakey, fudgey, and low in fat. This recipe can serve as a great base for your favorite brownie additions (Try adding 1/4 cup of peanut butter chips or white chocolate chips). With this basic batch, I recommend taking two brownies and creating a sandwich with 1/2 tablespoon of peanut butter. Seriously delicious.

Dark Chocolate Brownies (taken from Joy of Baking and altered)

Makes 16 brownies

  • 2/3 cup sugar or sweetener
  • 1/3 cup Country Crock Light buttery spread
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup Hershey’s special dark cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup non-fat vanilla yogurt (I used Chobani greek yogurt)
  • 2 tbsp water

Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray an 8×8 inch pan with non-stick spray.

Cream butter and sugar together in a medium sized bowl. Beat in vanilla extract and egg whites.

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder. Fold this flour mixture into the wet mixture. Stir in the yogurt and water.

Pour batter into prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until the edges start to pull away from the sides of the pan but the center of the brownies is still slightly soft. Don’t overbake, the brownies will continue firming up as they cool.
