Low Fat Fudge Brownies

Adapted from Obsessed with Baking

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/3 cup cocoa powder

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

2 oz semi-sweet chocolate, chopped (I used 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips)

2 tbsp unsalted butter, cut into small cubes

2 tbsp low fat sour cream

1 tbsp chocolate syrup (I used Nesquik 1/3 less sugar)

1 tsp vanilla powder

1 egg

1 egg white

1 cup sugar

1/2 tsp instant coffee (optional)


Preheat the oven to 350F and put the rack in the middle.

Line a square baking pan with foil.  The foil should come up the sides so that you will be able to pull the brownies out when they are done.  Spray the foil with oil and brush all over.

Whisk dry ingredients together.

In a double boiler, melt the butter and chocolate together until smooth.

Whisk in sour cream, egg, egg white, and sugar until combined.  Remove from the double boiler.  Fold in the dry ingredients.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean with some crumbs sticking to the toothpick.

Remove from pan by lifting the foil and let cool completely on a wire rack.
