Chewy, rich fudge brownie recipes usually contain lots of fat and sugar. This recipe makes rich, dense brownies with less sugar and fat. Plus, they only take one bowl to make so cleanup is easy!


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (melted)
  • 114 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, plain yogurt or sour cream (or a combination of these)
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I use Dutch process or dark)
  • 1/2 cup unbleached all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • Confectioner’s sugar for dusting (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Foil and grease a 8×8-inch baking pan.
  2. In a microwave safe mixing bowl melt butter.
  3. Add sweetened condensed milk , yogurt, and eggs. Stir to combine.
  4. Add cocoa, flour, vanilla and salt. Stir until smooth.
  5. Pour batter into greased pan.
  6. Bake on the lowest rack of your oven fro 20-30 minutes or until center is set and a toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Cool for 5 minutes in pan then use foil to remove to counter. (Removing the brownies from the pan stops them from overcooking in the hot pan.)
  8. Cool completely, dust with confectioners’ sugar and slice.
