Who doesn’t love brownies? But who feels they are a guilty treat? Here’s a healthy, delicious alternative.

A great healthy snack for any time you feel like something sweet.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup (190g) plain Greek yoghurt*
  • 1/4 cup milk of your choice
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup (50-100g) unrefined cane sugar**
  • 1/2 cup (45g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup (50g, GF Oats ground into oat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • To top: ~1/2 cup of your favourite peanut butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 180C/350F
  2. Grease and/or line a 6x6″ baking dish or 8x8″ baking dish (your brownies will just be thinner but still delish!) and set aside.
  3. Mix together your wet ingredients (yoghurt, milk, egg and vanilla) and sugar.
  4. Add in your cocoa powder, mixing until just combined.
  5. Next, add in your oats (or flour, see notes below for non-oat options), baking powder and salt, mixing until just combined.
  6. Pour your brownie mixture into your prepared tin.
  7. If your peanut butter is quite solid, melt it over low heat until you’re able to drizzle it.
  8. Drizzle your peanut butter all over the top of your brownie batter, swirling the peanut butter mixture with your brownie batter with a knife to create a swirled pattern.
  9. Bake for 15-25 minutes or until your brownies are cooked through and a skewer inserted into the middle removes clean.
  10. Allow to cool completely before slicing (it actually makes it even easier to slice them cleanly if you chill them in the fridge first).
  11. Store in an airtight container at room temperature or chilled in the fridge (we like these ones cold – but the choice is yours!).

Notes:

*You can use full fat, low fat or fat-free Greek yoghurt – all work perfectly!

**Use more/less depending on how sweet you like your baked goods!
