Chocolate heals! I strongly believe in this saying, especially today when I woke up feeling down, not sure why, but I hate to be in a bad mood, I should make me some Brownie Low in Calorie but with amazing flavor to fix my mood!
77 calories plus all the goodness and heavenly taste of a brownie, is what you get from these beautiful babies. When these brownies cool down, you’ll find that a very thin layer similar to chocolate glaze have formed on top.
Tips on making Brownie Low in Calorie.
Before running to the kitchen and bake these yum yums, please keep in mind;
1 – Do not use bitter cocoa powder.
2 – Do not use dark cocoa powder. (They tend to taste bitter too).
3 – Use sweet apples. (Stay away from the green apples).
4 – Ovens are different so take the brownie out of the oven if you inserted a toothpick in the middle and it came out with some crumbs. The brownie will continue cooking from the inside even after taking it out of the oven. Over-baking will result in a chocolate cake. Not that it’s a bad thing 🙂

And now the recipe….
- 1 cup chopped apples
- 9 tablespoons brown sugar or white
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
- Preheat oven to 356F/180C. Line your 8"x 8" baking pan with parchment paper.
- In a blender add, the eggs, sugar, oil, vanilla, and apples. Blend until smooth.
- In a bowl, sift the flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.
- Pour the wet ingredients over the flour and cocoa mixture, stir gently until just combined.
- Pour the brownie batter into the baking pan and bake for 15 - 20 minutes.
- The brownies are ready when you insert a toothpick in the middle and comes out with few crumbs.
- Try to remove the brownie from the pan immediately since it will continue cooking if stayed in the hot pan.
Clarification: When I made this brownie a thin glossy layer formed on top and tasted just like chocolate glaze. Hence this recipe used to be named (Light Brownie with Own Glaze). I had to change the title since it confused some of my readers.
