Fudgy Brownies

I promised my Mom I would share this recipe.  I was seriously craving chocolate and didn’t have any in the house (until Joel bought a bunch of on sale after Valentines candy.  I think he’d like me to gain another 10 lbs.  I wish I didn’t enjoy recreational eating so much!

Fudgy Brownies

(from Denise Baumert, field editor from Dalhart, TX – this probably came from a Country Woman or Taste of Home Magazine)

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup baking cocoa

6 Tblsp. nonfat plain or vanilla yogurt

2 egg whites

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup chopped walnuts (I used hickory nuts from our trees)

In a bowl, combine sugar, cocoa and yogurt.  Add egg whites and vanilla; mix well.  Stir in flour and nuts.  Pour into an 8-in. square baking pan that has been coated with nonstick cooking spray.  Bake at 350 for 25-28 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.  Dust with confectioner’s sugar if desired.  Yield: 16 servings.  Nutritional Analysis: One serving equals 87 calories (yes, 87!!), 12 mg sodium, trace cholesterol, 18 gm carbohydrate, 2 gm protein, 2 gm fat.  Diabetic Exchanges: 1 starch, 1/2 fat.

After combining the sugar, cocoa & yogurt I was in chocolate heaven.  I could have quit right there and devoured the gooey mess all by myself!  The brownies were very most & chewy & yummy!!  Joel did manage to find the two pieces of hickory nut shell that slipped into the batter – hey, the kids were helping to shell & they’re not as perfection oriented.  Enjoy!!!
