Fudgy Cream Cheese Brownies

Craving something sweet, but there just seems to be nothing good for you around? Everything just seems to be so fattening and unhealthy. Well here is a delicious, low-calorie desert that won’t break your diet!

Fudgy Cream Cheese Brownies


These gooey brownies only look unhealthy. Thanks to smart substitutions, they deliver less than 3 grams of sat-fat intake per serving. The American Heart Association recommends that a person requiring 2,000 calories a day eat less than 16 grams of saturated fat a day.

All you need is…

3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons reduced-calorie stick margarine, softened
1 large egg
1 large egg white
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
Cooking spray
1 (8-ounce) block 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup" measures-like-sugar" calorie-free sweetener
3 tablespoons1% low-fat milk

Preheat oven to 350°.

Beat sugar and margarine with a mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add egg, egg white, and vanilla; beat well. Gradually add flour and cocoa, beating well. Pour into an 8-inch square pan coated with cooking spray.

Beat cream cheese and sweetener with a mixer at high speed until smooth. Add milk; beat well. Pour cream cheese mixture over chocolate mixture; swirl together using the tip of a knife to create a marbled effect.
Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Cut into squares.

Tip: Don't use reduced-calorie or fat-free tub margarine in this recipe because those products contain water, which will make the brownies gummy.

I hope you enjoy this sweet desert! I know I did!

Much love,
Haley
