Fat-Free Low-Sugar Brownies
1 cup of unbleached flour
1/3 cup of cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup of agave nectar (add more if desired)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tablespoons soy yogurt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract (optional)
The next time I make these I'm going to try another 1/4 cup of applesauce or a full container of yogurt to see if I can make the brownies a bit more dense.
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Mix dry ingredients in one bowl (flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt). Mix wet ingredients in another bowl (agave nectar, applesauce, soy yogurt, vanilla extract, and almond extract). Combine the mixtures.
3. Pour batter into a pan (I used a 9" x 9" dark pan).
4. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on how fudgy or cakey you like your brownies.
The ENTIRE batch has somewhere in the neighborhood of 1000 calories so it should be about 80 calories per brownie depending on how you cut them.
Please note, these definitely do not taste like full fat, full sugar brownies but they take care of that chocolate cakey fix you need when you have to watch your weight. You could even eat two and not blow your diet!
