Reduced Fat Fudge Brownie Cupcakes

posted in Desserts, Fitness Food |

Lisa made this recipe from the book Fitness Food. We didn’t have a baking pan that was the size the recipe asks for, so she used an 8×8 pan and put the remaining mix in muffin pan lined with paper cups. The recipe yielded a full 8×8 pan plus 4 cupcakes.

Lisa says:

Yay for bonus cupcakes!

Chris says:

They’re so good with ice cream and that chocolate sauce. What’s with the walnut on that one brownie?

Lisa says:

There was a walnut laying around, so why not?

Chris says:

Good call.

Reduced Fat Fudge Brownie Cupcakes
oil spray
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup self-rising flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup cocoa powder
2 eggs
1 1/4 cup superfine sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp canola oil
7 oz low-fat vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup apple sauce
powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 350. Spray an 12×8 baking dish with the oil and line the base and 2 long sides with baking paper. Sift the flours, baking soda, and cocoa powder into a large bowl. Combine the eggs, sugar, vanilla, oil, yogurt, and apple sauce. Add to the flour and mix well. Spread into baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
The brownie will sink slightly in the center as it cools. Leave in the pan for 5 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool. Dust with powdered sugar, cut, and serve.

    I made these for the Superbowl yesterday and they turned out quite well. I think this recipe is a good base for experimentation- I added chai spices to the cupcakes.

    All the recipes you guys post look delicious. This one is the first I’ve made, but I’ll be coming back for more. Thanks!

    Fantastic use of apple sauce! Adds moisture without all the fat! And if you use homemade apple sauce, you miss out on all of the added coloring and preservatives!
