50 Calorie Brownies

I’ve finally found the perfect brownie for when I’m watching what I eat but still want to indulge in some tasty dessert. These brownies are so fudgey and they’re only 50 calories per piece!

 

Ingredients:

-1/2 cup rolled oats or oat flour

-1/2 cup cocoa powder

-1/4 – 1/2 cup calorie-free sweetener

-a pinch of salt

-1 tspn baking powder

-1 egg

-3/4 cup greek yogurt

-1/4 cup almond milk

– A splash of either vanilla extract or coffee

 

Instructions:

1.) Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2.) Blend the oats in a food processor for 1-2 minutes. If you are going to use oat flour, skip this step.

3.) Add the rest of your dry ingredients and mix (the 1 tspn baking powder, pinch of salt, 1/4-1/2 cup sweetener, 1/2 cup cocoa powder.)

4.) Once all dry ingredients are mixed together, you can now add the remaining ingredients and mix together until everything is well incorporated.

5.) Pour the mixture into a sprayed 8×8 pan and bake for 15-17 minutes.

6.) Allow brownies to cool for approximately 10 minutes. Cut into 9 even pieces.

7.) Refrigerate for up to a week!

 

NOTES:

  1. I added 1/4 cup chocolate chips to my batch because I love melty chocolate in my brownies so if you are going to do the same, just keep in mind adding the chocolate chips adds calories, carbs and a bit of fat!
  2. You can sub out the greek yogurt for a dairy free yogurt such as an almond milk or coconut yogurt. You can also use applesauce or berry puree instead of the yogurt.
  3. You can make these brownies completely dairy free by following note 1 from above and subbing out the egg for a flax egg (1 tablespoon flax seeds and 2.5 tablespoons water.)
  4. If you would like to make these brownies keto, you can make your own low-carb baking powder at home (use Simplysohealthy’s low carb baking powder recipe.) To sub out the oats, you can combine an even amount of flax seeds, chia seeds and unsweetened shredded coconut.
