Fudgy 100 Calorie Healthy Brownies

For a 100 calorie brownie, these were pretty good.  The general consensus around here though was that the Greek yogurt added an unwelcome zip to the brownie.  I’m thinking regular yogurt next time might solve that problem.

3/4 cup wheat flour

3/4 cup cocoa

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/3 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt

1/2 cup pure maple syrup

1/4 cup chocolate chips, divided

1  Preheat oven to 300.  Spray 8 x 8″ pan with cooking spray.

2  Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.

3  In another bowl, mix together butter, egg and and vanilla then add in yogurt mixing until no large lumps remain.  Stir in maple syrup.  Add flour mixture, stirring just until incorporated.  Fold in half the chocolate chips.

4  Spread batter into pan and press remaining chocolate chips into top.  Bake 15 – 17 minutes.  Cool completely.

If you follow my blog then you know that I have a love affair with waffles!  We tried this stick version which you can eat with your fingers, woo hoo and they were delicious!  I even made a few substitutions to take down the calorie count and no one noticed.  I made them in my new Pampered Chef pan, see below.

3/4 cup flour

3 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup milk (I used Almond Milk)

3 tablespoons oil (I used Greek Yogurt)

2 eggs (I used 1/2 cup applesauce)

1 teaspoon vanilla

1  Preheat oven to 400.  Spray waffle pan with cooking spray.

2  Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in medium bowl.

3  In another bowl, combine milk, oil, eggs and vanilla.  Add wet ingredients to dry and stir just until combined.

4  Distribute batter evenly among wells in pan.  Bake 11 – 13 minutes or until golden brown.  Let sit 5 minutes before removing.
