I wouldn’t call this recipe for Lightened Up Brownie a la Mode a healthy one, but it is…what I would call the lesser of the evil.
This brownie is incredibly rich and chocolaty. You would never know it’s a lightened up version. I switched out the granulated sugar with coconut sugar. Coconut sugar is low on the glycemic index and contains more nutrients and has 16 amino acids making this a healthy indulgence you can feel good about.
Egg whites, applesauce and just 3 tablespoon of unsalted butter make up this Lightened Up Brownie a la Mode. But you can’t have Lightened Up Brownie a la Mode with out the ice cream right? So I’ve paired this recipe with my favorite healthy ice cream Halo Top Vanilla Bean Ice Cream!
Lightened Up Brownie a la Mode Tips:
1. Be sure to test the brownies while baking them. Over baking will make them dry and crumbly.
2. For that right-out-of-the-oven experience, microwave the brownie for about 15-30 seconds.
