Yes, it's possible... Skinny OREO Chocolate Brownies!

Yes, you read the title right.
(Can you say that 10 times fast?)

They look like this:

And taste absolutely ridiculously delicious.
They are also super easy to make and bake and anyone can do them, you just need 2 bowls and a baking tray, ta-da.

They have no butter or oil in them BUT they do have one *weird* ingredient some of you may frown upon when you read it, but don't deny it before you try it. Just look at one more photo of them. 

They take about 10 minutes to prepare and 25/30 of baking so they're pretty fast to make and the recipe is pretty plain and made up of simple ingredients and makes 15 of them!

Before we get to the recipe I'd like to ask all of you who are following me in the begging of my blogging journey if you could share my blog and pictures and also like my facebook page (just click here), I'd really REALLY appreciate it.

Ok and now to the point; here goes the recipe and what-not:

110kcal Oreo chocolate brownies!

Makes 15 :-)

What you’ll need:
  • 180g (1 & 1/2 cups) self-raising flour;
  • 15g (1 & 1//2 tbsp) baking powder;
  • 1 large egg;
  • 70g egg whites;
  • 80g (3/4 of a cup) cocoa powder;
  • 130g (1/2 a cup + 4 tbsp) Stevia sweetener OR double the amount (and the calories!) white sugar;
  • 10g (1 tsp) vanilla paste or liquid extract;
  • 80ml (1/3 of a cup + 1 tbsp) skim milk
  • 50g (4tbsp) fat free mayo*;
  • 150ml (2/3 of a cup) room temperature water;
  • 15 Oreo cookies;
*Yes, Mayo, deal with it. You can't even feel the slightest taste in the finished product!


How to actually make them:
  • Pre-heat oven to 180ºC / 350ºF and grease a rectangular baking pan;
  • In a stand mixer mix together the egg, the egg whites, the vanilla paste and the sweetener until fully mixed;
  • Add in the milk and then the mayo;
  • In a separate bowl sift together flour, cocoa powder and baking powder and mix well together;
  • Start mixing into the stand mixer the flour mixture and water one at a time, starting and ending with the flour mixture;
  • In the baking pan pour about 1/3 of the batter and place in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes with the air circulation on (if you have air circulation, if not just make it about 10/15 minutes);
  • Afterwards take it out, drop the oreo cookies evenly spaced out so one goes into each brownie square when they’re cut, pour the rest of the batter over them spreading it evenly apart to cover all the cookies and pop them in the oven for another ±20 minutes!

So there you go: it's that simple!

Hope you actually try them and let me know how it went and how you liked them. At my place I made one batch of 15 and it lasted not even one day... They're just that good!
You can also try to top them with some peanut butter because come on, everything in life is better with peanut butter.

See you back here tomorrow!
