"After many tries, I've finally developed a really fudge-y, chewy brownie recipe. Several people in my office are on diets and swear by these. You can use low fat or nonfat yogurt and egg replacers to make it even lower in fat and cholesterol, but the full fat yogurt really adds to the texture of the brownies."

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease an 8x8 inch baking dish.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the sugar, cocoa powder and yogurt. Stir in the eggs one at a time until well blended, then add vanilla and salt. Stir in the flour until just absorbed. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 28 to 32 minutes in the preheated oven, until the brownies begin to pull away from the sides of the pan, and a toothpick inserted comes out fairly clean (sticky crumbs are okay). Cool brownies in the pan over a wire rack before cutting into squares. Cover tightly with plastic wrap to store.

For a very low-fat brownie, these are surprisingly good. They are very chocolatey and moist, but it's still obvious they aren't the "real thing". We list them most topped with frozen yogurt or...

This is not bad for a low fat brownie, though the texture is slightly rubbery. I had better results with low fat yogurt than with fat free. Overall, good for reduced fat!

I'm more of a chewy-cakey brownie person than dense and fudgy, but I found these delightful. I did make a few changes to enhance the flavor. I used fat-free plain yogurt and added 1/2 tsp cinn...

Very yummy (and bonus that it is low fat). I use low fat vanilla yogurt and omit the vanilla. So fudgy (and yummy with some chocolate chips in it too!)

Nice and easy for low fat brownies. I used non-fat yogurt and thought it was fine.

These were rubbery and inedible. My BF who will eat *anything* won't eat these. (And I followed the recipe to a "T", no substitutions or anything.)

Tastes ok, but needs more chocolate flavor. Consistency was odd...almost too moist or rubbery

this recipie was bad! The cocoa was too strong and there was a weird after taste, maybe by the yogurt? Not the best brownie recipie, but I was curious to try it, and im curious on how to improve...
