This ultra-moist brownie is made with whole wheat flour and strained Greek yogurt in place of butter or oil. The calcium and high protein content in the yogurt along with the fiber in the cocoa powder make this a healthier, guilt-free treat!

  • Mix sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Push mixture to the sides of the bowl to form a well in the center.

  • Combine yogurt, coffee, applesauce, and vanilla extract in a small bowl. Pour yogurt mixture into the flour mixture. Fold gently with a spatula until just combined. Spread in the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until center is firm to the touch, 45 to 55 minutes. Cool slightly before cutting into squares, about 15 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can substitute water for the brewed coffee.

If you use regular plain yogurt, omit the coffee/water. The brownies will have a cakier texture.
