I’m a sucker for promises of guiltless, fast desserts When I saw the box of Trader Joe’s Reduced Guilt Fat Free Brownies, I wasn’t in the least bit interested until I saw they had directions for making one brownie. Two tablespoons of mix and one tablespoon of yogurt and you’re off! I’m also wary of microwaved baked goods, but I stuck my little dish in for 45 seconds and was rewarded with some chocolatey and vaguely satisfying.
It’s more cakey than brownie-like, but it’s not chewy like some microwaved breads can get. I wouldn’t recommend using Greek yogurt, like I did, since you’ll have to add milk to make up for the consistency and then you’ll have too much batter to cook in 45 seconds. I’m wondering if you could just use milk, since we always have that on hand, which means this really could be a last-minute dessert fix.
For me. I would never serve microwaved fat-free brownies to people, but to whip one up for just me, I think TJ did a decent job.
