Brownies with Greek Yogurt
After successfully making the fudgy chocolate cake using Greek yogurt and fudgy chocolate cookies, I wanted to try making a healthier brownie using Greek yogurt.
This actually is not one of those posts where I excitedly tell you about my new finding. I made a few versions of the brownies, trying to play around with the ratio of ingredients, but unfortunately, I haven’t gotten a version I’m completely satisfied with.
Don’t get me wrong. These are edible. But they don’t taste as good as regular brownies, and have a slightly sour sweet aftertaste I’m not fond of. When I tried changing the ratio of yogurt and water, I ended up with a really rubbery version.
So this is more one of those posts where I’m asking if anyone has any ideas or has successfully accomplished a greek yogurt substitute in brownie mix. This version is okay. It’s fudgy, chocolatey, but has a little bit of a sour aftertaste. FH didn’t even really notice so maybe I’m just more sensitive to the taste. Maybe next time I’ll add an egg to give it a little bit of fat.
