Healthy Brownies with Walnuts and Dark Chocolate ChipsThese low fat brownies are amazingly moist and tender for healthy brownies. The secret? I borrowed a page from the Sneaky Chef cookbook (compare prices) and added pureed blueberries in the batter. The result is a moist, tender low fat brownie that's healthy, but doesn't taste it. I've also added dark chocolate chips and walnuts to make these healthy brownies even healthier.
- 2/3 to 3/4 cup frozen blueberries (enough to make 1/3 cup blueberry puree)
- 2 Tbsp. water
- 1 19.5 oz. brownie mix (preferably dark chocolate)
- 1/3 cup canola oil
- 1/2 cup egg substitute
- 2/3 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray.
- In a food processor fitted with a metal blade, puree frozen blueberries and water until smooth. You will need 1/3 cup of blueberry puree, so you may have to adjust the quantity of frozen blueberries you use to end up with 1/3 cup.
- In a large mixing bowl, using a spatula or wooden spoon, beat blueberry puree with brownie mix, oil and egg substitute until smooth. Stir in chopped walnuts and chocolate chips.
- Pour brownie batter into prepared dish. Bake 28-33 minutes until a knife inserted two inches from the edge comes out clean.
