Rocky road brownies

April 9, 2017

I was craving brownies, my daughter loves the Starbucks brownies which are probably a gazillion points πŸ˜‰ sometimes I will break of the tiniest piece to get that little brownie fix.. but this particular day I said.. no wait… I’m just going to make some and I was on a mission to create a 2 point brownie! Easter is almost here and we all love our chocolate treats, these brownies will be sure to fulfill any mad chocolate cravings you might be having.. Bake them up for your family or just save them all for you πŸ™‚

2SP/2PP each (same on freestyle)
Ingredients
  • ¾ cup flour
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup egg whites (I use ones in carton)
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp oil (I used canola)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • ¼ cup marshmallow fluff
  • 1.5 squares (15g) lindt 70% dark chocolate
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and spray a 9x9 dish with some cooking spray.
  2. In a bowl whisk together your egg and egg whites. Stir in the sugar, apple sauce, vanilla and oil.
  3. Mix in your dry ingredients, flour, cocoa powder and baking powder, stir well.
  4. Using a spatula place your batter into your dish and make sure it spreads out evenly.
  5. Bake in oven for 20 minutes.
  6. Let cool for at least 1 hour, then using a knife scrape around the edges of dish and carefully remove brownies from dish. If they are still too warm then let cool longer.
  7. Place your marshmallow fluff in a small microwave safe dish and heat for approx 35 seconds, it will rise, don't stir it just spread it very quickly on your brownies.. Melt your chocolate in the microwave for 35 second intervals turning each time until melted, then drizzle with a small spoon.
  8. Cut into 16 brownies. 2 smart points each (2 points plus) Best stored in sealed container and I would move to fridge after day 1.

    Can you do it without the marshmallow fluff? Will it effect the points at all?

      Sure, the fluff really only adds a few points to the overall recipe so I doubt it will affect points per brownie

      Hi, I use 3 methods when calculating points, WW recipe builder, My Fitness Pal (to get nutri numbers) and simple math in my head

    What would happen if you use almond flour instead of regular flour… Would that change the points?

    These came out SO GOOD! Considering they are a lightened up brownie, they taste incredible. They also cooled really well and I was able to cut nice even slices in a considerable amount of time! A lot of the time thick, rich brownies take forever to cool and they always become crumbley so I am glad I found these! I used crushed walnuts instead of the chocolate drizzle, and it came out to 3 pts for me πŸ™‚

    It’s so refreshing to see a recipe that doesn’t call for an alternative sweetener or flour substitute. Thank you!!!

      These brownies don’t rise a ton, but they should rise as you see them in the picture

    Could you substitute stevia for the sugar? Would that effect the points? The taste?

      you could but I am not too sure on the points I only know as I made it, it would bring the whole recipe down not sure if it would be enough to make each brownie less

    I made these 2 weeks ago and froze them! I pull them right out of the freezer and eat them like that! Totally hits the chocolate spot πŸ™‚

      Hi Mandi, sorry it is really hard for me to say what happened when I am not there, when you say lighter do you mean not as dense?
