Recently adopted this abandoned recipe and began making some small modifications. Despite being nearly fat free, this recipe yields a moist and fudgy brownie that is sure to cure your chocolate cravings.
- 1 cup cocoa powder
- 3⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 1⁄2 cup yogurt
- 1⁄2 cup cold brewed coffee
- 1⁄4 cup corn syrup
- 1 cup applesauce
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- cooking spray
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together dry ingredients into a large bowl.
- Add wet ingredients and mix well.
- Pour batter into a 13 x 9 inch baking pan prepped with a light coat of cooking spray.
- Bake 28 to 30 minutes. The brownies will still be sticky on top but firm.
- Let cool 5 or 10 minutes before cutting.
Pretty darn good... I'm always trying to find low-cal recipes and this one is pretty good. I only had vanilla yogurt, so I just reduced the amount of extract I added and stuck to the rest of the recipe. I cut it into 16 portions and figure they are 3 points on Weight Watchers. Even my hubby is digging it!
Theses are quite nice for a guilt free chocolate fix. I brought the fat and sugars down even more by using 3TBS of sugar in a 3/4 cup measuring cup and filling the rest with Splenda (I made a half recipe and cut that into 16 pieces). The yogurt was fat free, unsweetened applesauce and the syrup was No Sugar Added imitation maple. The applesauce flavor does come through but that doesn't mean that it's bad. I think that the coffee could be quite a bit stronger (I used leftover morning coffee). All in all, considering the very low fat and sugar in mine, I found this to be a welcome treat. I should perhaps add that I'm well used to very low fat foods. Made for Photo Tag.
I'm having a really hard time rating these. They have the very applesauce-y taste and the texture of numerous other fat free baked goods I have made before. (And the taste and texture that makes my husband say "ah.. fat free, huh?" after one bite without having been told.) So I don't think this is the right brownie to make for someone who you are trying to convert to a lower fat lifestyle. But for those of us who have adjusted to the taste some (like my kids), it was a decent snack. This is somewhere between a 3 and a 4 for me. Not bad but probably not something I'll make again. Thanks for one to try though!
