One of my recent baking projects was trying to find and / or create a recipe for some healthier brownies.
I found a few recipes and ended up kind of combining them and then having to modify some ingredients for what I had on hand.
I’m calling these Better Brownies
I think I’m onto something! I still think it needs some modifications, so I’m not posting the exact recipe yet, but here are the ingredients I used:
- unsweetened applesauce
- ff plain yogurt
- vanilla sugar (could use sugar and vanilla extract instead)
- whole wheat flour
- baking cocoa
- baking powder
- baking soda
- chocolate chips
Check out that crust!
These brownies are so rich and chocolatey. They have a great cocoa flavor and a nice texture – really fudgy, just how we like them. They did take a bit longer to bake than most brownies, but they were so worth it.
I think next time I’ll do half chocolate chips / half walnuts.
I would also use regular sized chips next time, but I only had the mini ones on hand.
First healthy brownie try? A success :) But I think they’ll be even better next time!
Do you have a healthier version of your favorite dessert?
