These brownies don't contain as much chocolate as most recipes. With just 2 tbsp of chocolate, these are still satisfying enough (at least for me) and they are lower in calorie. The measurements may seem weird, but trust me the brownies are fudgy and delicious!

I am really suprised about this recipe. The measurements did seem weird but they are very full of flavor. They are not as sweet and gooey as other brownies but it definitely does satisfy when you have a chocolate craving. I love that they low in calories! I don't feel that guilty having these! Mine were done in exactly 12 minutes.
