Skinny Brownies

Y'all I made these not too long ago and honestly, had pretty low expectations.  I'll admit I'm not a fan of a skinny dessert trying to masquerade as the real thing.  However, I tweaked this recipe a few times and I'll be, if it doesn't taste pretty darn good ... moist and chocolatey, even my 25 year old son said so.  And that's a ringing endorsement if there ever was one.  

*  3/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt (I used the Best Choice store brand and it's awesome)
*  1/4 cup skim milk
* 1/2 cup cocoa powder
* 1/2 cup Truvia
* 1 large egg
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/4 cup chocolate chips

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease an 8x8-inch baking dish.  (I used glass)
2.  Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.  Pour into the prepared dish and bake for approx. 25 minutes or until a wooden pick in the center comes out clean.
3.  Cool completely before cutting.

** If my calculations are correct, cutting this pan into 16 brownies, each brownie is 88 calories. Not too bad ... if you can only eat one ....
