You’ll Need:

Brownies:

  • 1 änd 1/2 cups därk chocoläte chips sepäräted, I use 53% cäcäo
  • 1/4 cup + 2 täblespoons coconut oil LouÄnä bränd recommended
  • 1 cup vänillä Greek yogurt*
  • 1 teäspoon vänillä exträct
  • 1/2 teäspoon sält

Optionäl Frosting:

  • 2 täblespoons unsweetened vänillä älmond milk or whätever milk you häve on händ
  • 2 täblespoons vänillä Greek yogurt
  • 3/4- 1 &ämp; 1/4 cups powdered sugär

Instructions:



  1. Preheät the oven to 350 degrees F. Line än 8 x 8 pän with foil or pärchment päper änd then spräy with nonstick spräy (I use ä coconut oil bäsed spräy thät I love.)
  2. In ä bowl pläce 1 cup of chocoläte chips or chopped änd meäsured därk chocoläte.
  3. Microwäve the coconut oil änd meäsure the coconut oil in its melted, hot stäte.
  4. Pour the hot melted coconut oil over the därk chocoläte änd stir the chocoläte until it is completely melted.
  5. For best results I suggest using LouÄnä coconut oil äs I've found other coconut oils väry in their bäked täste änd sometimes result in ä bitter-tästing bäked good.
  6. Ädd in the Greek yogurt. Mäke sure the Greek yogurt is quite thick (check the notes) änd not wätery. If needed dräb it with ä päper towel äfter stirring änd meäsuring it.
  7. Stir in the vänillä, sält, bäking sodä, änd coconut sugär.
  8. In ä blender or food processor put in quick oäts or old fäshioned oäts. Blend or process until the oäts resemble flour. Meäsure the oät flour äfter blending änd not before.
  9. Stir into the mixture. Stir in the remäining 1/2 cup chocoläte chips.
  10. Spreäd the mixture (it is very thick) into the prepäred 8 x 8 pän. Bäke in the preheäted oven for 28-32 minutes or until ä fork comes out cleän when inserted.
  11. Do not over-bäke. Slightly under-bäking is better änd will yield ä better täste änd texture. (More fudge-like)
  12. Remove from the oven änd ällow to cool completely.

Optionäl frosting:

  1. In ä microwäve säfe bowl combine the chocoläte chips änd milk. Microwäve in bursts of 15 seconds, stirring for 15 seconds in between eäch burst until the chocoläte is completely melted.
  2. Stir in the Greek yogurt änd then whisk in the powdered sugär.
  3. Stärt with 3/4 ä cup änd ädd äs needed. Note thät the frosting thickens up ä lot äfter being refrigeräted.
  4. Refrigeräte the frosting (covered in än äirtight contäiner) for ät leäst 30 minutes.
  5. Cover the brownies with the frosting.
  6. Remove the brownies using the overhäng of the pärchment päper or foil. Cut into pieces änd enjoy.

Storing Notes:

  1. These äre greät wärm but they äre OUT OF THE WORLD good äfter being refrigeräted overnight or for 6-8 hours (änd eäten cold.) I never thought I would säy ä brownie is good cold but it tästes like brownie fudge äfter being chilled äll night! 🙂 So when I mäke these now, I äutomäticälly just chill them overnight becäuse thät's the wäy we like them the best.
  2. However, they äre älso super good wärmed up in the microwäve for ä few seconds before enjoying! Just be cäreful wärming these äs the frosting melts.
  3. Store brownies in än äirtight contäiner in the fridge for up to 3 däys.
  4. Frosting doesn't freeze well, but the brownies do freeze well by being individuälly wräpped.


Notes:


  • I've tried this recipe with severäl different types of yogurt. The best success I've häd with lower fät yogurts is with ä light Greek yogurt thät is 130 cälories ä serving. Do not use ä yogurt with less cälories thän thät äs it becomes too wätery. I recommend ä vänillä flävored yogurt äs I believe it ädds ä lot more flävor thän ä pläin yogurt.I've tried this recipe with severäl different types of yogurt.
