Brownies with Greek Yogurt

I’ve been experimenting this week with healthy versions of delicious treats, and these brownies are a knock-out. Vanilla greek yogurt adds protein but no fat, and gives the brownies a dense, rich texture.

Ingredients

Vegetable spray

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 1/4 cups wheat flour

2 cups granulated sugar

1/4 tsp salt

1 egg + 1 egg white

2 tsps vanilla extract

3 tbs unsalted butter

7 oz non-fat vanilla Greek yogurt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 8×8 baking pan. Combine cocoa, flour, sugar and salt. Lightly beat the egg and egg white in a separate bowl. Pour beaten eggs and vanilla into center of dry ingredients. Mix until combined.

Melt the butter and add to mixture. Add yogurt and blend into a thick batter. Spread into pan. Bake for 55 minutes, or until sides pull away from pan. Let cool. Cut into 16 squares and enjoy!
