Yield 16 squares (serving size: 1 square)
These sweet, chewy brownies get their rich flavor from both cocoa and dark chocolate, but they're lower in fat than traditional brownies because the recipe calls for a low-fat milk, fewer eggs, and a reduced amont of sugar and butter.

Ingredients

  • 4.5 ounces all-purpose flour (1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup 1% low-fat milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 large egg
  • Cooking spray

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

  2. Weigh or lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, cocoa, and salt in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk.

  3. Place butter and chocolate in a medium microwave-safe bowl, and microwave at HIGH for 45 seconds, stirring every 15 seconds. Stir until smooth, and set aside. Cool slightly. Add 1 cup sugar, milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, egg yolks, and egg; stir with a whisk to combine. Add butter mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until combined. Pour batter into an 8-inch square metal baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out almost clean.
