Chocolate Brownies with strawberries and cream

8 Aug

This recipe definitely satisfied a craving for chocolate, and although they are made in a cupcake tin, they are more like brownies than cupcake.  Delicious little round brownies 🙂  The addition of strawberries and cream was a yummy one that I’d recommend. It really bulks up this little guy so you feel like you’re having a real, full sized dessert, without many calories.  Enjoy.

Ingredients: 

  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp splenda brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp melted light margarine or butter (50 cal per tbsp)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

 

Directions: 

  1. In a medium bowl, mix all dry ingredients.  In a smaller bowl, mix all wet ingredients.
  2. Mix wet and dry ingredients together, and stir until well mixed and not too lumpy.
  3. Divide batter between 10 cups in a standard muffin tin (no liners). Spray tin well with non-stick spray first.
  4. Bake at 350 for 15-17 minutes.  Let cool 5 min before serving.
