Almost fat-free brownies

Almost fat-free brownies


17 people made this

About this recipe: These brownies are super fudgy (my favourite type), nearly fat free, and could definitely take a couple tweaks to make the yogurt flavour less pronounced. You can also make these egg free by using flax and water in replacement of the eggs - this eliminates all of the saturated fat from this recipe!
