Greek Yogurt Brownies

Greek Yogurt Brownies

Yes, I’m the type of person who always likes to finish off a meal with a bit of dessert.  Whether it’s a square of dark chocolate or a spoonful of ice cream, I always like to leave my taste buds with something sweet.  More often than not, I find myself craving a dark chocolate brownie a la mode.

For all the brownie lovers out there, here’s a treat for you.  This classic recipe is super satisfying and has one delicious twist: Greek yogurt.  By substituting most of the oil with yogurt, these brownies jump up a notch on the healthy-ish scale with less fat and more protein.  Plus, it creates a fudgy yet fluffy texture unmatched by any other ingredient.  Yum, yum, yum!
