Healthy Fudgy Brownies

Submitted by Sami Holmes


About the cook: Growing up, I learned a lot from my mom (the queen of eyeballing) in the kitchen, along with the importance of wholesome family dinners. Now, I spend most of the year traveling with my professional baseball playing husband, experimenting in the kitchen, and helping others create a healthier, balanced lifestyle. Health, balance, and sweets are all important to me. Which is why I strive to make "tastes too good to be healthy" recipes. Through my recipes, I hope to show people that eating well and nourishing our bodies doesn't have to be bland, boring, or impossible.

About the dish: The first time I made these, the disappeared in less than 36 hours. Yes, they are THAT good.



National Origin: American

Serves: 12

Estimated Time: 30 to 60 Minutes

Ingredients:

BROWNIES:
1 egg
2 TBSP egg whites
5 oz. plain Greek yogurt
2 TBSP butter or coconut oil
1/4 C unsweetened dairy-free milk
6 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 C chocolate chips
1/2 C oat flour*
1/4 C Stevia
1/4 tsp. salt
3 tsp. vanilla

* flour: any kind of flour can be used

GANACHE:
1/2 C chocolate chips
1/2 C dairy-free milk
2 1/2 tsp. butter
1 tsp. vanilla

Preparation:

BROWNIES:
1. Preheat the oven to 350F
2. Melt the butter and HALF of the chocolate chips in the microwave
3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the egg, egg whites, and chocolate mixture together
4. Add the Stevia, yogurt, and vanilla (it may be a little lumpy)
5. Mix the rest of the dry ingredients until smooth
6. One TBSP at a time, mix the milk in until a brownie batter consistency is reached (it should take about 3-4 TBSP)
7. Fold in the remaining chocolate chips and spread the batter evenly into a prepared 9×9 pan
8. Bake for 17-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean – as the brownies are baking, prepare the ganache (below)

GANACHE:
1. Heat the almond milk and butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat until it begins to simmer – but be careful not to let it boil
2. Once simmering, turn off the heat and stir the chocolate chips and vanilla in
3. Constantly stir until it’s dark and smooth
4. Remove from heat and occasionally stir the ganache as it cools and thickens (the brownies should be cooling around this time too)
5. Pour the ganache over the brownies and let them both continue to cool and set (or they can be placed in the fridge to speed up the process)
