A dessert that has all the appearance and taste of a sin of gluttony, but with less fat and sugar than the classic recipe. Don't forget the strawberries, for a perfect spring snack
When you think about the Brownies one inevitably thinks of a sin of gluttony.
With butter, chocolate and sugar in fact one cannot but obtain an explosive result of taste and goodness, but also a caloric bomb.
But you know that you can prepare delicious and practically identical brownies for consistency and flavor to the original ones even with lighter ingredients?
Less fat, less sugar
To make brownies lighter and less caloric, it is important to reduce fatty ingredients and sugars.
Fats should not be completely eliminated because to obtain a tasty result and a soft consistency they are an important element within the compound. We can simply review the quantities or modify them, choosing healthy and good fats like coconut butter or olive oil, instead of butter.
As for sugar, it would be useless to replace it with cane sugar or with agave syrup or honey because it is always sugar, but we can use it erythritol or stevia.
Another sweetener that gives a particular taste to brownies and also a consistency that Americans would call "chewy" is the date.
You can use the pulp of dates of Medjoul smoothie for the preparation of many desserts or to spread on bread for breakfast.
