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 made them with Splenda also and they were good.

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.
