Blogged while hate watching The Walking Dead
It’s hard to eat healthy when you’ve got a crazy sweet tooth like I do. I’m always looking for alternatives and replacements to still be able to eat my favorite sweets without too many calories. I’m excited to share this healthy brownie recipe. It doesn’t have any oil or fat and instead is surprisingly high in protein (from cottage cheese).
A million years ago, I bought a home fondue set that came with a clay ramekin. I wish I could remember where I bought it or even what it’s called, but I think this one comes pretty close to what I have. It’s a little pricey on Amazon, but I always see it at TJ Maxx or Marshall’s for much cheaper.
None of the ingredients should be hard to find. Odds are, if you’re used to eating mostly healthy meals, you’ll already have these items in your pantry.
I’m working on a large batch version of this which I hope to post later.
Ooey-Gooey Healthy Brown, Single Serving, Egg-free*
3 tbsp WWW flour (I use King Arthur)
2 tbsp almond flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp Stevia (the one for baking)
2 tsp cocoa powder (unsweetened)
pinch of salt
2 tbsp cottage cheese
3 tbsp applesauce, unsweetened
1 tbsp chocolate chips (optional)
Non-stick spray or butter
- Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
- Combine the wheat flour, almond flour, baking soda, Stevia, cocoa powder, and salt. Mix well.
- Add wet ingredients: cottage cheese, applesauce, and chocolate chips (if using them).
- Pour ingredients into a greased ramekin (I used non stick spray)
- Bake for 20 minutes
- Let cool 10 mins and enjoy!
*I tried making this recipe with an egg but the texture was way too eggy. It tasted more like a sweet quiche than a brownie. If it was more than a single serving, the egg would have worked, but with such a small amount, the taste becomes too over-powering. If you know someone with an egg allergy or intolerance, this recipe would be perfect for them!
