If you’ve ever dieted (and who hasn’t?), you know that depriving yourself of all tasty treats usually ends in failure in the form of a crazed binge. That’s why I like to allow myself little indulgences like these ooey-gooey low cal brownies. To put it plainly, this low calorie brownie recipe is amazing.
Not only are these low cal brownies delicious, but they also only have 37 calories each. Yep, that’s right. Thirty seven calories. I typed it out so you know that number is no typo. 😉
I know what your thinking. You’re thinking, “37 calories? Great, so what? Nothing that low in calories is going to be any good.” Right?
These low calorie brownies are delicious. The applesauce and Greek yogurt give them a smooth texture that borders on decadent. Seriously, when you’re scarfing one of these low calorie brownies down you’ll almost feel guilty, like you’ve fallen off the diet wagon.

Keeping a batch of these low calorie brownies on hand, assuming you can keep everyone in your house from eating them as fast as you can make them, is a great way to help yourself make healthier choices.

What can you replace for the truvia sweetener? I currently have all the ingredients except that one
Sugar or any artificial zero calorie sweetener, you could also use real maple syrup or agave or even honey.( note real natural sweeteners will probably change the taste a little)
Thanks, Kacie! 🙂 Kelli
How many carbs?
Melissa Gomes says
Uhm, this is about 66 calories per serving. Still low, but a big difference relatively speaking.
Yeah… I input all my ingredients and am coming out to 83 calories per serving. I think it may depend on what brands, quality, and type of ingredients we each use.
Kelli, these look FAB! I am always looking for a super low cal sweet treat! I’m vegan so I will be substituting the egg for flaxegg OR neat egg and the milk for unsweetened almond milk. There is vegan greek yogurt substitute but is there anything else I could possibly replace that with?
Hi Alison! Hmmm….I’m not sure what else you could substitute but I’m excited to hear how you like them. Thanks for sharing! 🙂 Kelli

Do you Know if it works to only ide the egg white?☺️
Avital Kaneti says
You say add egg in the instructions, however in the list of ingredients eggs are not mentioned. How many eggs do I add ?
Hi Avital, Yes, 1 egg is listed in the ingredients. Hope that helps. 🙂 Kelli

Mine needed a smaller pan. I’d suggest 8 x 8, not 9 x 9. I have some chocolatey pancake things! LOL!
Ok, LOL! Thanks for sharing your experience, Naomi! 🙂 Kelli
This look gorgeous! ??
I’d like to give it a go, but one question: Applesauce, for someone who cannot find it in shops (not something that you’ll find here in Norway), can you give me a recipie for that?
Hi Bjorg, I don’t have an applesauce recipe, but I’m sure if you got on Pinterest you could find several. 🙂 Kelli
Peel and core your apples. Boil until tender…pour off water and let the apples set in colander for a couple of minutes to drain off a little more. Put them in a blender and blend until smooth. Waa-laa…applesauce. I made it for my babies and didn’t add sugar. I actually enjoy it without adding sugar.
