Eggless Yogurt Brownies
Watch the video for this recipe:
I have recently discovered these yogurt brownies and I was quite impressed by their texture even though they are made without butter and eggs. They are definitely healthier and you can make them even healthier by adding coconut sugar or even brown sugar instead of refined sugar and adding almond or oat flour instead of all-purpose flour.
These yogurt brownies are rich and fudgy, abounding with chocolate, a great treat for whenever you are craving for brownies and want a healthier version, rich in chocolate and lower in calories.
Even though I love this healthier version of brownies, the classic one made with eggs and butter still remains my favorite choice if I have no restriction on any of the ingredients. Hope you will try these out and let me know how they turn out for you. Enjoy!
