Double Fudge Skinny Brownies

Sticking to a healthy eating plan can be challenging, but it doesn’t have to be impossible! Rewards must be built in – this is a must! If you don’t allow yourself a little sweet treat every now and then, you’ll feel absolutely deprived. 


That is why we are IN LOVE with this recipe for double-fudge skinny brownies. Low-fat Greek yogurt is used in place of butter in the brownie recipe, cutting down the fat but adding a yummy texture!

 

 

And the delicious icing that makes them feel extra decadent is made with honey and cocoa powder, two excellent natural ingredients to have in your kitchen!

For the Icing

  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
