Why you’ll love this recipe

  • No-bake and only 4 ingredients for a quick and easy sweet treat. 
  • Stevia can easily be swapped for other low-calorie sweeteners. 
  • One serving has 5 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber to help keep you full and satisfied. 
  • So rich and decadent, you’ll never believe it’s only 80 calories and has no added sugar! 

What you’ll need

Cocoa Powder: Any unsweetened cocoa powder will work for this recipe. In addition to the deliciously decadent flavor, cocoa powder also adds powerful antioxidants to this brownie. 

Cocoa is rich in polyphenols which studies have found to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Choose dark chocolate if you enjoy the flavor, as it generally contains more antioxidants than other types of cocoa. 

Peanut butter powder: Peanut butter powder is low in calories and fat, but has all the peanut butter flavor you love. While the fat has been removed, you’ll still get a hefty dose of protein at 6 to 8 grams per 2 tablespoons. Some peanut butter powders can have up to 3 grams of added sugar, so make sure to read the label or purchase a no-added-sugar peanut butter powder

Oat Flour: If you don’t have oat flour on hand, don’t worry! You can easily make oat flour from either old-fashioned or quick oats. Just pulse the oats in a blender or food processor until they’re ground down to the texture of flour. 

Oat flour adds soluble fiber to this recipe, which can help to slow the absorption of sugar into your bloodstream for an even rise and fall in blood sugar. 

Stevia: Using stevia in this recipe adds all the sweetness, but none of the sugar and calories that sweeteners like table sugar, honey, or maple syrup add. You only need just a pinch for this brownie, since stevia is 200 to 350 times sweeter than table sugar. You could also use other non-caloric sweeteners like erythritol or allulose if you don’t have stevia on hand. 

How to Make Low-Calorie Brownie Dip

  1. In a small bowl, mix the peanut butter powder, oat flour, cocoa powder, and stevia together. 
  2. Slowly add the water and whisk until a creamy dough begins to form. Add the water 1 tablespoon at a time to avoid the batter getting too thin.

FAQs

What Sugar-Free Sweeteners Can I Bake With? 

There are so many sugar-free or low-sugar sweeteners on the market, it can be confusing to know which one to use. An important thing to know is that not all of them are great to bake with. Try some of these low-calorie sweeteners when baking:

Stevia: Stevia is the non-nutritive sweetener used in this recipe. It’s naturally derived from the stevia plant and adds zero calories or sugar. While the taste doesn’t change when baked, it won’t brown or caramelize like table sugar does when heated. 

Allulose: Allulose is a naturally-derived sugar that does have some calories and carbs, although not enough to make much of an impact. At 0.4 calories per gram, it’s significantly lower in calories than table sugar which has 7.0 calories per gram, making it a great low-calorie sugar alternative. Allulose is a great choice for baked goods and cold desserts as it looks, tastes, and acts just like table sugar. 

Erythritol: Erythritol is a sugar alcohol, which makes food sweet, but doesn’t have any calories or effect on blood sugar. Instead of absorbing erythritol, it travels through your digestive system intact. It works well in baked goods, but shouldn’t be used for desserts that will be cold or frozen since it tends to form large crystals at cold temperatures. 

Monk Fruit: Monk fruit is a zero-calorie sweetener derived from the monk fruit plant. As it’s 100-200 times sweeter than table sugar, it can be tricky to use in baked goods that require a certain volume of dry ingredients. Purchase powdered monk fruit that says it can be used in a 1:1 ratio or liquid monk fruit as a substitute for recipes requiring liquid sweeteners.
