Cocoa Brownies

POINTS® Value: 1
Servings: 16
Preparation Time: 7 min
Cooking Time: 20 min
Level of Difficulty: Easy

Fudgy and rich. An easy, super-satisfying chocolaty treat.

3/4 cup(s) unsweetened cocoa, powder
3/4 cup(s) sugar
1/2 cup(s) all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp table salt
1/2 cup(s) low-fat plain yogurt
2 Tbsp vanilla extract
2 spray(s) cooking spray

Position the rack in the center of the oven and preheat oven to 350°F.

Whisk the cocoa powder, sugar, flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Then use a wooden spoon to stir in the yogurt and vanilla until smooth but quite thick.

Coat an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray. Spread the thick batter into the pan, evenly to the corners.

Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, about 20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes before cutting into 16 squares, 2- X 2-inches each.

Yields 1 square per serving.
