Low Fat Chocolate Brownies

Brownies are supposed to be an indulgent treat… can they really be low fat??  Well, this recipe ticks both boxes (and the low-sugar box too, if you use a sweetener… and don’t dust the top with icing sugar… haha).  These are low fat and delicious; you would never guess these were under 100 calories per brownie.
Low Fat Brownie
Ingredients
50ml vegetable/sunflower oil

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
50g cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • Carefully add the cocoa powder with the baking powder and flour, and mix well
  • Combine both mixtures
  • Line a 20cm x 20cm baking tin with greaseproof paper and pour the batter into the tin
