Two of My Favorites


This weekend we had the yummiest dessert ever! My kids loved it, I loved it and I’m betting you’re going to love it too! Two of my favorite foods in the whole world are strawberries and brownies. They are absolutely divine on their own but when I combined the two this weekend it was like a small piece of heaven!

It’s super easy to make, which is always a plus, but you can also make it low key and casual or dress it up to make it look like something you’d order at a fancy restaurant) it’s always nice to have something that looks super fancy be super easy to make! Don’t worry, it’ll be our little secret).

Berry Yummy Brownies

  • 1 low fat brownie mix
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup berry flavored applesauce
  • 2 egg whites
  • 4 pounds of fresh ripe strawberries
  • Non stick cooking spray

Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 pan with non stick cooking spray and set aside. Mix all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Pour brownie mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 25-28 minutes, keeping in mind that oven temperatures vary slightly. Remove from the oven and let cool.

Meanwhile, wash and clean the strawberries, removing the green tops. Cut each strawberry into quarters, place in a clean bowl  and set aside.

Place half of the clean, cut strawberries into a different bowl and mash them. If you would like to, you can add a SMALL amount of sugar to slightly sweeten (I don’t think they need it, but everyone has different tastes). Put the remaining strawberries into the  strawberry puree and stir in.

When the brownies have cooled, cut into 2″ x 2″ squares. Place a  brownie square on a small dessert plate and pour strawberry puree over the top. Because of the berry flavored applesauce, the brownies already have a hint of berry flavor to them, but with the berries on top…It is so YUMMY! 🙂
