Kinda healthy fudge brownie
I found the original wonderful recipe on http://www.backforseconds.com. But I have re-written the recipe below in my own way.
All Purpose Flour: 3/4 cups
Caster Sugar: 3/4 cups
Light brown sugar: 1/4 cup
Unsweetened Cocoa Powder: 1/2 cup
Greek Yogurt: 1 and 1/4 cup
Vanilla Essence: 1 tsp
Semi-sweet chocolate chips: 1/3 cup (plus more to sprinkle on top)
Vegetable Oil: 2 tbsp
Preheat your oven at 180 degrees Celsius. Grease an 8 x 8 inch square cake tin. Set aside.
In a bowl, melt the chocolate chips along with the vegetable oil for 30 seconds. Stir the mixture and re-heat for another few seconds if your chocolate chips have not melted.
Once the chocolate mixture has cooled, add the greek yogurt and whisk until combined.
In a separate bowl, sift and add all the dry ingredients together ie. all purpose flour, caster sugar, light brown sugar and cocoa powder. Mix the ingredients with the help of a spatula.
Add the chocolate mixture to the dry ingredients bowl, and fold the batter with the help of a spatula until all the ingredients are well-combined. The batter will be on the thickish side.
Transfer the batter to your greased cake tin. Spread the batter evenly with the help of a spatula. Sprinkle some more chocolate chips on top.
Allow the brownies to bake at 180 degrees Celsius for approximately 20 minutes.
Once the brownies have baked, transfer the tin to a cooling rack. Let the brownies cool completely before cutting.
Congratulations! The wait is over … you can now dig in and enjoy these moist fudgy brownies …
