Low Fat Recipe
Oat bran adds a nutritional punch to these rich brownies while cocoa powder and chocolate syrup give them a wonderful double chocolate flavor. Using just the egg whites, we cut fat, calories and cholesterol with no sacrifice to taste.
1/4 cup plus 1-tablespoon unbleached flour
1/4 cup oat bran
1/3 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup instant nonfat milk powder
Pinch baking soda
1/4 cup chocolate syrup
3 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Combine flour, oat bran, cocoa, sugar, milk powder and baking soda in a large bowl; mix well. Stir in the chocolate syrup, egg whites and vanilla extract. Fold in nuts if desired.
Coat an 8 x 8-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray. Spread batter evenly in pan and bake at 325-degrees for 23 minutes or just until edges are firm and center is almost set.
Cool to room temperature, cut into 2-inch squares and serve.
This recipe can be made ahead and stored in an airtight container for up to three weeks in the refrigerator or at room temperature.
