150 cal low-calorie healthy brownies have become my most requested recipe from family and friends. Healthy dessert options are in high demand! Chocolate is a weakness for a lot of people. Most people LOVE chocolate….and brownies of course! With small modifications, you can still enjoy most desserts without ruining your waistline. Bikini season is around the corner. How amazing does it feel to rock a bikini with confidence while enjoying a nice, moist brownie?

Check out these macros! These brownies are low-carb because of the ingredients. I used unsweetened cocoa and stevia as a table sugar substitute. Applesauce and Greek yogurt are great additions because they add flavor and great texture. Both are also great substitutes for oil, which is typically often used in baking recipes.

Almond flour is gluten-free and is great to use because it is high in protein and fiber, and lowers calories and carbs. Compared to all other nuts, almonds provide the most calcium and are beneficial for heart health and lowering cholesterol.
These brownies are so moist. The almond flour really does a great job with the texture.

Loved the chocolate flavor. Excellent for people who are not into sweets but still want to enjoy a good gooey chocolate brownie

Very fudgy and great texture. I will add a little more monkfruit sweetener the next time I make these but otherwise this was great! To add more sweetness while I went through this batch I just made whipped cream using some heavy cream and monkfruit sweetener I had on hand and it worked out perfectly!

Your brownies look amazing, so I tried this recipe. It didn't turn out well at all for me. They were bitter and tangy like the taste of yogurt. ? The texture was off as well, smooth on top and soft and spongy. Do you really only use 1/4 cup of almond flour?

Yes, the texture you described is what I like. If you like them really sweet add additional sweetener.

Can I leave out the chocolate chips without affecting the results? I don't like biting into chocolate chips in brownies. Thanks!
