Salted Chocolate Brownies

This recipe is from Eat Skinny Be Skinny. These are most definitely some of the BEST low-fat brownies I've ever made (and I've tried several recipes). Icing on the (brownie) cake? They were so easy. I hope you enjoy.

Salted Chocolate Brownies

Yields: 12 – 14 brownies
Prep time: >10 minutes
Cook time: About 22 minutes


  • 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup of unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup of semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons condensed milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon of sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease an 8 inch x 8 inch glass pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt and cocoa. Make a well with a spoon and set aside.
  3. In another medium bowl, add chocolate and butter. Microwave on high for one minute, stir, and microwave for another 30 -60 seconds. Add sugar and mix until creamed. Add in condensed milk, egg, egg white and vanilla, stirring until fully combined. Pour the chocolate mixture into the well of the flour mixture and stir until there are no flour streaks.
  4. Pour batter into the greased pan. Sprinkle additional salt over the batter and bake for at least 22 minutes. Chill brownies for at least an hour so they firm up. Enjoy!
