Soft, warm chewy brownie!

Thursday, January 31, 2013

I don't buy packages of brownies, nor do I make a big pan of them. There are only two of us in this house, so guess which one eats most of them before they can even be frozen!

So I ran across this EASY, FAST FAST FAST, great recipe for a single serving brownie. Now I was very skeptical, because I hate many of the "faux" foods.

1 TBSP whole wheat flour (I used plain all-purpose flour)
1 TBSP sugar (do not substitute)
1 TBSP unsweetened cocoa
a pinch of baking soda
a pinch of salt
1 TBSP of low fat vanilla yogurt, add more if needed to blend the mixture

My first brownie turned out "okay". Rather dry, over-nuked, but do-able. It was for my hubby, because he is my "sweet stuff" tester.

So later I adjusted: For dry ingredients that called for a TBL, I used "scant" TBL's. For the yogurt, I used "overflowing" TBL. Great consistency. I microwaved for 1 minute 10 seconds.
I used a small individual microwavable clear bowl, took my fork and cold glass of skim milk and ate it right out of that small bowl. Took my time and enjoyed every bite.

It was P.E.R.F.E.C.T! So if you're a chocolate and/or brownie lover, and just want a single brownie to brighten your day AND stay on track, give this a try. You may have to adjust timing, etc. like I did, but it's VERY worthwhile!

You'll find the recipe in the Spark recipes: "Single Serving Chocolate Brownie" by SLOWSET.

Next: Going to try the Nutella brownies!
