You don't have to give up brownies to keep it off. You just have to be smart about it. A normal brownie square is 206 calories with 11 grams of fat. My healthy lighter brownies are only 95 calories with 3 grams of fat. Big difference. These brownies are great to serve at a party without feeling guilt about packing on the pounds.

Ingredients

  • Canola oil nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee powder or granules
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup trans-fat free vegetable oil spread (60-to-70-percent oil)
  • 3 large egg whites

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 

Grease an 8-inch square metal baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a cup, dissolve the coffee in the vanilla extract. On waxed paper, combine the cocoa, flour, salt and baking powder. In a medium bowl, whisk the sugar, vegetable oil spread, egg whites and coffee mixture until well mixed. Then blend in the flour mixture. Spread in the prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the brownies 2 inches from the edge comes out almost clean, 22 to 24 minutes. Cool in the pan on a wire rack, about 2 hours. When cool, cut the brownies into 4 strips, then cut each strip crosswise into 4 squares. If the brownies are difficult to cut, dip the knife in hot water, wipe dry and cut. Repeat the dipping and drying as necessary.
