Recipe Ingredients for Almost fat free fudge brownies

3/4 c whole wheat flour

4 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 c fat free yogurt
1/2 c water

Recipe Directions for Almost fat free fudge brownies

  1. Yield: One 88 inch pan (16 squares)

  2. Procedure:

  3. Preheat oven to 350F/180C for 15 minutes. Lightly grease an 88 inch square pan and line it with aluminum foil, with some extra foil hanging around the edges so that it is easy to lift the brownie. You wouldn?t believe how much time saving and mess free is this simple step of lining with foil.

  4. In a large microwave bowl melt the chocolate chips. It took about 45 seconds for the chocolate to melt. Do not set the time all at once, melt it in increments of 15-20 seconds because the cooking time in microwave ovens differ from one to another. Use a whisk to stir the melted chocolate to see that its smooth. Let this stand for a minute or two.

  5. To the melted chocolate add the yogurt and sugar; mix until combined.

  6. Sift flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and nuts (if using) and stir until just combined.

  7. To this mixture add water and stir carefully until the batter comes together. This batter looked more like a cake batter.

  8. The original recipe mentions to bake the brownies between 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Mine actually took 32 minutes. So start with the minimum amount of time mentioned in the recipe and increase the time in small increments if it doesn?t bake.

  9. Remove the pan from the oven and leave it on a cooling rack for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes carefully lift the foil and let the brownies cool completely before you can cut it. If you don?t use the aluminum foil the cooling time will be much longer. You would have to leave it overnight too. I was able to cut it beautifully within 2 hours.

  10. Notes:

  11. If you have a sweet tooth I would suggest increasing the quantity of sugar to 3/4th of a cup. I also felt a mild sourness from the yogurt (my husband and son did not notice it). So I think the increased quantity of sugar will mask that too.

  12. If you do not want to increase the quantity of sugar try testing/tasting the yogurt before hand. The original recipe had mentioned to use Balkan style yogurt, maybe that isn?t as sour as the plain yogurt I used. I have tried the Stoneyfield organic yogurt and it is not sour at all (at least immediately after opening). Maybe you could try that in this recipe.

  13. Forgot to write this point before. I was not sure if the melted chocolate mixture would curdle if I immediately added yogurt to it. So I waited for about 5 minutes after I melted the chocolate in the microwave oven before adding the yogurt. To be even more sure I first mixed the sugar to melted chocolate; mixed it well and then added the yogurt.
