low-calorie brownie baking healthy

I love baking and even more so eating baked goods, especially brownies. To me, brownies are the slightly more naughty version of muffins, rich and chocolatey, and unfortunately not very good for your bikini body.

However, there is a way to make moist chocolate brownies that won’t leave you feeling guilty as they are under 50 calories a piece. Yes, that’s right, delicious low-calorie brownies. They are flourless, but made with rolled oats, making them the perfect energy-boosting breakfast snack or afternoon treat.

Not only are these brownies tasty, but also very easy to make as you don’t have to worry about weighing the ingredients, just use the same cup for measuring everything.

Makes 8


3/4 cup non-fat Greek yogurt

1/4 cup skim milk

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup Truvia (or any natural/stevia based sweetener that pours like sugar)

1 egg

1 tsp baking powder

1 pinch salt


  1. Preheat oven to 200° Celsius. Grease a square, medium sized baking dish and put aside.
  2. Combine yoghurt, milk, and egg and stir thoroughly. Add cocoa powder, oats, sweetener, baking powder, and salt and stir until everything is blended and you have a smooth batter.
  3. Pour batter into baking dish and bake for about 15 minutes. Don’t worry if the brownies are slightly undercooked, they taste even better this way!
  4. Let cool and cut into 8 pieces. Enjoy!

The great thing about this recipe is that you can add ingredients like nuts, raisins, berries, or pretty much whatever you like! It will add a few calories, but it will still be a much healthier brownie than the ones you can get at a supermarket. Happy brownie baking!
