Low-Point Brownies

Yum
Who doesn't love brownies? You won't find many people who don't but you may find a lot of people who feel guilty indulging in such chocolatey-caloric goodness. This recipe will rid you of any guilt you may have; therefore, enabling you to enjoy life just a little more. Ok so maybe brownies aren't the only thing that constitutes a happy life, but they sure do help! :)


Low-Point Brownies
Ingredients:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 cup butter
2 oz. of dark chocolate (chopped), or 2 Tbs. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup Splenda granulated sugar
1/4 cup 1% milk
1 tsp. vanilla
2 egg yolks
1 egg
Cooking Spray
Mix flour, cocoa, and salt. Set aside. In a microwavable bowl, heat butter and dark chocolate (or mini chocolate chips) until smooth (45 seconds to 1 minute). Stir in milk, Splenda, vanilla, egg yolks, and egg. Add mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until combined. Pour batter into an 8 x 8 inch square baking pan coated with Pam cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. The less time you bake it, the more moist the brownies are, which is what I love... gooey brownies. Actually, I'm good with just the batter and a spoon. :) (Sprinkle with a very light coating of powdered sugar if desired.) If you'd like a printer-friendly version of this recipe, Click Here.
