100 Cal Chocofudge Brownies

This recipe was passed onto me by my good friend M. Remember him ? He’s the devilishly handsome tennis player I dated for a little while. While our love affair may not have lasted, our friendship thankfully has, which is great news for me but even better news for you because you get to be let in on the skinny brownie recipe!

When he first told me about 100 cal brownies I was sceptical to say the least. They were going to be flavourless, dull and dry, right?

Oh I was so wrong.

You know I love a good brownie, but these are good . I mean really, really good. Like sit down & accidentally eat the entire pan good. Their texture is a bit like eating slightly melted fudge & they pack a seriously chocolatey punch in the flavour department.

M’s recipe comes out at exactly 100 calories per brownie, but I added chopped pecans to mine which raises them to 170… still ridiculously low for a brownie. Nuts are full of good fats that help your skin look fresh & your hair shiny. It’s totally up to you if you include them, I like the texture & flavour but if you’re a big calorie counter, leave ’em out.

Ok you’ll need:

180g (3/4 cup) Low fat yogurt

60ml (1/4 cup) Skimmed milk (or almond/soy)

64g (1/2 cup) Cocoa powder

43g (1/2 cup) Wholegrain rolled oats

64g (1/2 cup) Truvia (or any natural/stevia based sweetener that pours like sugar)

1 free range egg

1 tsp Baking powder Pinch of salt

150g Roughly chopped pecans (or nuts of your choice)

This recipe is even easier than a Betty Crocker box! Pre-heat your oven to 200°C/400°F & grease a small baking tray (about 8in x 8in) Throw everything except the nuts into a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into tray, scatter with nuts & bung it all into the oven for 20mins. When they’re totally cool, slice them up.

The calorie count is based on cutting them into 9 chunky badboys.

I like my brownies ever so slightly undercooked & gooey in the middle, so took mine out a little early. If you wanted nice firm, uniform looking ones then leave them in for the full time. It’ll make them much easier to pop in packed lunches too.

Quick, easy, utterly delicious & totally guilt free.

Have you seen these?

    Just tried them… I love the constituency, but the truvia taste overpowered the cocoa… I just hate Truvia, it has such a bad after taste, next time I’m trying raw honey.

  • Ashley Lark

    These sound fabulous! I’ve tried bean brownies before but I hadn’t thought to make a sweet like this before. Thanks for posting this ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Lafemme

    I’ve just made these and I’m sorry to say this although they look good, they are horrible in taste. I bought the stevia sweetener from Holland and Barrett. 1/2 a cup was definitely way too much and gives it ‘toothpaste taste’. I have to throw away the whole thing, it’s vile! Such a waste of ingredients. A bit of fructose and honey would have been much better.

  • Just found your blog & im SO glad I did! I shall be bakign these bad boys for my charity bakesale on Monday! …I may have to make an extra batch (in case i eat the first round lol!)

    I just made these after finding your blog, they were delicious!! I only had 10g of sweetener though so they were a tiny bit bitter, but I like dark bitter chocolate anyway so it was fine ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the recipe!

    I’m usually such a big fan of your lovely recipes (and, of course, brownies!!). Sadly, this one didn’t work out so well for me.

    This is not to put anyone else off trying them, but rather a suggestion of what not to do/use. I had some stevia from Holland & Barrett lurking in my cupboard, which I used to make these. My brownies had a horrible bitter aftertaste, which meant I had to throw them all away ๐Ÿ™ I have now realised that the stevia I used was bulked with something called inulin, which lots of people online are saying has a bitter aftertaste when used in quantity. SO the long and short of it is…make sure your stevia product is inulin-free!

    Just made them, vile, just vile!!
    Followed the recipe to the letter, they were bitter, flat, weird texture and just a bit revolting!!
    These pics are definitely not what mine looked like!!
    Whole tray went in the bin! Yuck!!
    If something is too good to be true, it usually is!!!

    Hi Rosie,

    I just made these but mine are a lot darker and taste very bitter… ๐Ÿ™ What cocoa powder did you use?

    I just made these. They taste pretty goof – a little gooey but considered the calories that was completely acceptable! But my “dough” (after i blended it) was really thin like chocolate mil and they didn’t rise at all – didn’t look like the pictures at all. they only became like 1/4 inch thick. Any idea of why they became so thin? I used sukrin instead of truvia. Could it be because of to much liquid, or to much blending or..?

  • TabbyKitten

    I’m sorry to break the news…. i had SUCH high hopes… and i know i probs ought not be surprised given the kcal content but…. no, no, no, no, ick. Not yummy at all in mine & my housemates opinion.

    Not even worth the 100 calories! We are happily (& guiltlessly) going back to the full-calorie version.

    Oh man. These were the WORST! Horrible flavour and texture. They’ve gone straight in the bin, and I usually can’t bring myself to waste food. I’d rather be a bit fat and eat normal brownies.

  • Amna Akhtar

    isnt 64 gms of truvia a bit too much …

  • Emily

    Hey! Do you think they’d still taste good if you replaced the cocoa powder with something like Options low-cal hot chocolate? x

  • Debbie

    What yoghurt can you use? Greek yoghurt? Or would that be too sour?

  • Jen

    These are not good! I double checked….I followed the recipe correctly. They were flat, not gooey (I only cooked for 15 mins) and super bitter!! I had such high hopes
