Low Fat Gooey Brownies

Low Fat Gooey Brownies

The other day I felt like a sweet treat, a brownie to be precise; but I didn’t want all the extra calories that went along with said brownie.  So I decided there has to be a way to make a low fat brownie that still tasted gooey and rich – so that it was I did.  I make this delicious Low Fat Gooey Brownie that I may or may not of shared with the kiddos.

I tossed a handful of choc chips in for good measure and I was pleasantly pleased with what I had made.  I did a rough guestimation (if you are rigorously counting calories don’t quote me on it) and if you cut this mixture into 9 pieces they work out to be less than 80 calories per slice (if you use a sugar replacement like stevia).

Not to bad for a sweet little treat.

INGREDIENTS

3/4 Cup 0% Greek Yoghurt (I used Chobani)

1/4 Cup Skim Milk

1/2 Cup Stevia (or raw sugar)

1/2 Cup Cocoa

1/2 Cup Rolled Oats

1 Egg

1 Teaspoon baking powder

Pinch Salt

 

LETS PUT IT ALL TOGETHER

1. Line a square baking dish approx 20cm x 20cm with baking paper. Preheat the oven to 180 degree celcius.

2. In a food processor (a personal blender or blender should work ok too), place all the ingredients.  Process for about 1 minute until the oats have broken down.

3. Pour into the lined baking dish and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the top just starts to crack and it is firmish to touch.

Allow to cool (if you can wait) before enjoying.

Serves 9

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 7 days.

Freezer friendly, place into individual zip lock bags and freeze for up to three months.

    This recipe looks amazing. Does the gooiness settle so it’s not super sticky?

      It stays quite gooey, not sticky though.

    I did the recipe for the first time with my 2yr old daughter but we got a little distracted and forgot to put the Baking Powder in. But we did add a touch more oats, coconut & topped it with 6 squares of leftover grated dark chocolate I had & sprinkled crushed walnuts all over the top. It turned out great! Delish! My husband loved it too.

    How many calories per serving? They look amazing!

      A slice is approx 80 calories if a sugar substitute like Stevia is used.

    will add less cocoa next time. they aren’t very sweet – quite bitter actually and not gooey. what did I do wrong? Are they supposed to be quite flat?

    • Amanda February 1, 2016 at 11:11 am #

      Yes they are only about 1cm in thickness. Did you use normal sugar or a sugar substitute? I think I prefer normal sugar as I found the last time I used Stevia it was bitter.

    I dont have raw or stevia, would brown sugar or caster sugar be ok? thanks

      Yes you can, it will just change the calorie count etc.
