I got a little sneaky last week. In my quest for trying to be healthier, I thought I remembered seeing something on Pinterest about using Greek yogurt as a substitute for eggs and oil in a cake and brownie recipe. So, of course, I looked back through my pins and found it!
So, I decided to give it a try without telling anyone. I used a box of Ghiradelli Double Chocolate Brownie Mix (yum---my favorite), 1 6oz. Fage Greek yogurt and 1/4 cup of water.
Well, at least the batter looked the same...
And I cooked the brownies like the package said and they came out looking "normal"...
They were quite gooey, but I did notice a slight aftertaste. Fred agreed that there was something missing.
So, I guess being sneaky doesn't always pay off and sometimes there's nothing just like the real thing. Next time, I'll stick with the eggs and oil.
Have you ever tried something like this? If so, did it work? Did they notice?
