These little guys have a very rich, dark chocolate flavor. They may be bitter to some people’s liking. Any recipe can be modified, but always adjust your calories to reflect the modifications. I heartily recommend “My Fitness Pal” as a resource for weight loss, gain, or maintenance. The app allows you to create and edit your own recipes, and gives you nutritional information about your finished food. You can change ingredients, change serving sizes, and log the food in your diary.

Brownie Bites

1 6-ounce container of nonfat vanilla yogurt

¼ cup skim milk

½ cup baking cocoa

1 egg

1 tsp baking powder

½ cup quick rolled oats

½ cup granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix together all ingredients. Flour can be substituted for the oats, which will result in a smoother, less chewy texture. I prefer the extra bulk – I substitute oatmeal into a lot of recipes. The resulting caloric value will be higher if you get the same yield, but I found I got a few more brownies using flour, so it nearly balances out. If using oats, allow the mixture to rest for a few minutes as the oats absorb some of the liquid.

Use a low- or non-fat cooking spray to grease mini-muffin tins. Place about a tablespoon of mix in each cup. Bake for 10-15 minutes until brownies are firm.

Let cool for a few minutes, then remove from pan.

Makes about 18, depending on how much batter you put in each cup. These should be kept refrigerated, due to the yogurt.
