Makes: 24 bites

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup plain thick-style yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon coffee (or water)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F and get out a mini muffin tin. Now go ahead and measure and add all the dry ingredients (cocoa, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt) and give a good stir making sure to break up all those bits of cocoa.
  2. Measure and add the rest of the stuff and give a good stir making sure there aren't any clumps. It's that easy.
  3. Grease your tins with spray or veggie oil (this recipe will fill two mini (or regular size) tins) and then scoop and drop a small spoonful of batter into each open spot.
  4. Pop the dark chocolate brownie bites into the oven for 12-15 minutes. Once the tops are nice and toasty, they're good to go. If you prefer cake-ier brownies, let them hang out in the oven for a couple of minutes longer.
  5. Remove the goodies and let cool in the tins for 5-minutes and then slide slide the dark chocolate brownie bites out with a butter knife. This recipe makes about 24 mini brownie bites, perfect for snacking or an after dinner indulgence. Enjoy!

I love chocolate, and these brownie bites are better than any chocolate cake I've ever had. They give the rich taste of the cocoa with the protein of yogurt and it really tops off a nice meal, without the heaviness of a rich chocolate anything. Thank you Sarah!

Thanks - the batter is really thick, but the end result are nice and dark chocolate flavored brownie bites. <br />

I love how you make these in the mini muffin tins -- no cutting, no crumbs, just lovely little rich chocolate nuggets. I'm seriously thinking of adding some blended spices, inspired by the Aztec Two Step Coffee Cake recipe posted by Susan G recently. Stay tuned . . . . ;o)
