Fudgy Greek Yogurt Brownies are incredibly fudgy! They are rich and decadent and everything a brownie should be. Only you don’t have too feel as bad eating them because you know you are getting your calcium too!
I am a huge brownie fan! I’m not sure if I like the brownies better or the batter. Either way, making warm, gooey, fudgy brownies ends up on my to-do list about weekly! Since I am a huge advocate of Greek yogurt, I though it only seemed right to try making brownies using it. Really, I should have tried this years ago. The middle pieces are especially fudgy. In fact, when we were eating them Justin commented on how heavy these brownies are. My friends, you don’t get heavy brownies that are cake like. If you like fudgy brownies (of course you do, who doesn’t), these brownies are for you!
I have to remind you I’m still a HUGE fan of butter. You can’t go wrong with butter. But, in these brownies the Greek yogurt not only gives them a great fudgy texture, it also gives them a little bit of a tang. A tang that I happened to love. Adding huge chocolate chips probably took these brownies from what could have been healthy into what was down right delish! Which is fine with me! I will just run a little farther today!
Did I mention these are rich enough, and chocolaty enough that you can skip the frosting them? That’s right, one less step for you and they still taste amazing. By the way, the brownies get fudgy the next day, if they last long enough to taste. I put a post it not on mine that said, “you can have the edges, do NOT eat the middle pieces. I still need to take pictures”. That’s why mine lasted over 24 hours! I say even if you aren’t taking pictures you try it. Who knows, maybe it will work for you too!
