Microwave Good-For-You Brownies

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by sizzlera

this brownie recipe was taken off of fat-free archives- it definitely needs a chocolate sauce or frosting to help keep it moist- when i first attempted this with no sauce it got very dry- but with a chocolate glaze it's very nice

I used the oat bran, regular sugar, and fat free sour cream instead of yogurt. I had to add a good amount more than called for because the batter was so thick. Mine cooked 10-12 minutes longer than called for and still looked REALLY sticky on top but was done on the inside. This is dense and not super sweet, but was a nice foil to a thick icing when I needed something relatively quick and that did not heat up my kitchen.

  1. Combine all dry and sift together.
  2. Add in wet and mix - batter will be thick.
  3. Spread evenly into microwaveable dish (not too large a dish).
  4. Top with chocolate glaze or for super moist brownies- pour chocolate sauce in first.
  5. Microwave on medium heat for 4-6 minutes until just a few moist spots remain.
  6. Let stand for 10 minutes on wooden board or heatproof counter top.
