3/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt (I used vanilla)
1/4 cup skim milk
1/2 cup Cocoa powder
1/2 cup Old fashioned rolled oats (like Quaker)
1/2 cup Truvia (or any natural/stevia based sweetener that pours like sugar)
1 egg
1/3 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch salt

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Grease a square baking dish (I used 8"x8"). Combine all ingredients into a food processor or a blender, and blend until smooth (about 1 minute). Pour into the prepared dish and bake for about 15 minutes. Allow to cool completely before cutting into 9 large squares.


Thought some one might enjoy these!  There great!

I tried these once and they were utterly inedible. My 4 year old granddaughter spit them out, my daughter spit them out, and so did I. Don't know whats wrong -- maybe the stevia. Would never make theses again.

Plain stevia is super concentrated, you probably put way too much in. You would have to use a stevia blend, like Truvia, or something similar that has a similar ratio to sugar (you have to read the package).

Just made these...gross. I used a different sweetener. What a waste of ingredients.

I just made them and they are super good. I used splenda brown sugar instead because I think it doesnt have the after taste some sweetners do. They turned out good. I mixed them in my ninja blender also.

I love them! Used splenda/sugar blend instead, so may have up the calories a hair but overall a great alternative to flour laden brownies!

I just made them with a Stevia blend intended for baking... The brownies were AWFUL! They were not sweet enough by a long shot. I think the stevia/sugar blend might be better, but am not sure I want to waste more ingredients to find out.

We think they are delicious!!! We used truvia. They don't taste like traditional brownies but what a wonderful alternative.

Just made these just as described and calculated the calories, 89 not 37. Had to cook for longer and they csme out more like a baked cheesecake certainly not a brownie. Not too bad. Very sweet. Dont know what others are complaining about, some people must be eaing some extremely sweet rubbish!

Made these once. They were delicious. I doubled the receipe. Used 1/2 cup Honey and my homemade applesauce. Cooked 10 min longer and would definitely make these again

Disgusting. Could be the Truvia. Will try again with honey or some other sweetner...will not be low cal, but will taste good.

Overall they have good flavor in order to get a chocolate fix, but I cooked them for more than double the time that the recipe instructs and they are STILL undercooked in the middle, while the bottom and edges are slightly burnt.I did cook them at 400 like the recipe says.

these came out delish. i used stevia, but LOTS less than the amount of truvia in the recipe. one of those tiny spoons that comes with my stevia - smaller than a 1/16th of a teaspoon - equals a teaspoon of sugar.

Love them make them all the time and freeze them, only use splenda don't like the taste of stevia in cakes. I add a half a cup of coconut and sprinkle the top with reduced sugar cranberries.

I have made several modifications to this recipe and had a great turn out and still maintained a lower calorie count.

I have substituted the following items for the cocoa: cinnamon, nuts, canned pumpkin, bananas, sugar free jello, no sugar added apple pie filling, no sugar added cherry pie filling.

I also use egg beaters instead of real egg, no milk or applesauce. I use Love Grown Oats with chia and flax seed for added protein/nutrition (found at Hyvee). I've added some toppings/frosting to some of my recipes which adds sugar and calories but still a great alternative to regular bars.

I also blend all the ingredients in a food processor or blender before baking which helps the texture be more fluffy and less course/chunky

The recipe I used did not have applesauce and I used Swerve sugar substitute instead of Stevia. It has no bitter aftertaste. They were more like a fudgey cheesecake than a brownie. Very good. Will definitely make again and again.

So bad, I can't believe these actually looked good. There's way more then 37 calories in it anyway, plus if you actually LIKE the crappy taste, you just end up eating more cuz their "low calorie". You would be much better off just being satisfied with a good, old-fashioned 100 calorie brownie and get so much more out of it.
But if you like the taste of rancid yogurt mixed with oatmeal and fake sugar, be my guest

I dropped some on the ground while I was baking these and my dog ate about tablespoon off the ground before I could stop him.
Fifteen minutes later, when the brownies were done I tried it and was utterly gross
Then my dog started to gag and threw up on my carpet and I could obviously see some of the brownie in the puke... so disgusting even my dog thought they were bad and dogs eat EVERYTHING

Gross. 37 calorie brownies? That sounds fake enough but it's not even WORTH it is what bothers me. I made these and not a single person who tried it kept it in their mouth...Waste of time and ingredients...
