These dark chocolate yogurt brownies are packed full of dark chocolate flavor and a hint of tangy yogurt. Made with white whole wheat flour, coconut palm sugar and ready from start to finish in just 35 minutes.
Let’s talk about my current obsessions – Soda Stream, old seasons of Top Chef, 30 Rock, and The Bachelor. Totally random, right? Let’s break this down:
Soda Stream – it makes fizzy water. How is that ever a bad thing? Plus it helps me drink almost 6 liters of water a day so I’m feeling crazy hydrated.
Top Chef – right after Christmas all the seasons of TC went on sale and my hubs and I bought 4 seasons. So far we have watched 3.5 out of 4 and I’m already disappointed that we didn’t’ buy all the seasons. Plus watching people make fancy is always inspiring.
30 Rock – I still love me some Liz Lemon. This will never stop.
The Bachelor – Squeeee it’s January so that means it’s time fake love, stabby women and lots of shots of one random man showering outdoors. If you also love The Bachelor make sure we are following each other on Twitter because I live tweet that ‘ish every single Monday night.
Know what else I’m obsessed with? Trying new recipes by subbing in ingredients I’m not used to typically using. For example – these brownies. Now, I’m totally used to making brownies but I was determined to make them totally different this time by throwing in yogurt.
Normally when I make brownies I opt to make a recipe that is super fudgy and covered in frosting (hello peanut butter frosted Nutella brownies!) but these brownies have a different texture. A little bit cakey but full of big chocolate flavor. I also added a little espresso powder to bump up the chocolate flavor and sprinkled the top with sea salt because why not?
Even though the brownies were big on the chocolate flavor they still had a nice flavor from the yogurt which you could actually detect. I also used palm sugar so the recipe was a little less sweet than a typical brownie. I guess you could say I made a sorta healthy-ish brownie – white whole wheat flour, coconut palm sugar, yogurt and dark chocolate. Totally healthy.
