Sometimes you just need a chocolate gift without all the blame.

I've saved the day, these guilt-free chocolate brownies are a hit.

It's a scratched record around here.

Another day of snow / ice / strong wind / cold temperature for us. I received the text message while I was still in bed and I don't lie that a small tear escaped my eye and rolled on my pillow. Our children officially go to school until June. Which means moving on to my posts from the beginning of June in a few months and I will brag about how I'm blogging on my terrace in the sun, drinking in hand and those little kids are still in school.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel.

So basically this morning I spent it in my robe, drinking my coffee, wearing headphones, making these brownies.

I wanted to create a fun Valentine's Day gift for all of us who are trying to see what we eat. Are you watching your sugar intake? Carbohydrates? Well, I cut everything into these brownies and swapped out a lot of the unhealthy things {flour, oil, butter, etc.} and put some better foods {egg whites, cottage cheese, oats, etc.}.

A brownie has 111 calories, 19 carbohydrates, 2 grams of fat, 5 grams of protein and 14 grams of sugar. Not bad, right? Compared to a normal brownie that's roughly triple those amounts.

Also… they taste very, very well.

Honestly, when they came out of the oven and I was staring at them, I had no idea if they would taste like cake or brownie. They were going to be called no fault chocolate brownies or no fault chocolate cake.

So after photographing them, I demolished that ELF in about 5 flat seconds. Yes, I said brownie. The texture is more brownie than cake, therefore ELF.

They're rich, tasty, a little nutty in a good way {of the oatmeal}, cut like a dream {nothing is worse than a brownie that is too sweet and doesn't cut} and just savor heavenly.

Since we are so close to Valentine's Day, how do you celebrate it? Date night in? Romantic night? Do you completely skip the holidays?

I think everyone is fine. I'm a little here or there on vacation. If it works and we can have a great night. If we're at home with the three kids, she could make heart-shaped pizzas, put on a movie, and call it night.

No matter what you do, I will stay and say EVERYBODY It feels special, no matter the day if dessert is served. Dessert is love, right? These brownies only take over 30 minutes from start to finish and with 5 different palates in my family, I have found that each of them loved these little chocolate gems.

They didn't even know they were healthier for them!

Take some time and do this! Shout it out on social media {@sweetsavoryeats} and I'll be sure to reply. Share your photos! The more my recipes are shared, the more my blog can grow. Happy Valentines Day!

No fault chocolate brownies

These blameless brownies don't taste blameless! Chewy, smooth and rich in flavor, these are great to make when you need chocolate, but you don't need the calories and fat.

preparation time: 10 minutes cooking time: 30 minutes total time: 40 minutes


  • 3 egg whites
  • 3/4 cup 2% cottage cheese
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • 5 oz Hershey Milk Chocolate Bar (or any brand)
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 3/4 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1/4 t of salt
  • powdered sugar, to sprinkle


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit on an 8 × 8 baking sheet, letting the edges hang down the sides (for easy handling later). Drizzle with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a food processor, turn the oatmeal into fine crumbs (you may want to double the oatmeal as they will drop to 3/4 cup). Remove the oats and reserve.
  3. Place the egg whites, cottage cheese, and vanilla in the food processor and process until smooth.
  4. Break the chocolate bar and place it in a microwave safe container. Microwave at 15 second intervals, stirring after each interval, until melted and smooth.
  5. Add melted chocolate, sugar, baking powder, and salt and process until smooth.
  6. Lastly, add the oatmeal and pulse until combined.
  7. Pour the brownie batter onto the baking sheet and spread until smooth.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until elastic to the touch and slightly away from the edges.
  9. Let cool and cut into 9 brownies. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.
