Who says dieting and healthy living recipes need to be filled with stuff like vegetables and fruit in order to be actual healthy foods? There are recipes out there that you can make that can still satisfy your sweet tooth, like this yummy gooey peanut butter chocolate brownies recipe and all of its surprisingly healthy ingredients below.

Instead of using fatty ingredients that would normally be found in most sweets these days, especially if you're buying them straight from the grocery store, you can replace everything with much better alternatives that still taste very yummy. Because we all know that sometimes a "healthy" brownie or cookie might not have any flavor at all!

What makes these brownies ingredients so much better for you than the other alternatives out there? Check it out:

  • The milk used to make these brownies have both the perfect balance of gooey and fluffy. It is also fat free, instead of being full bodied and potentially fattening. This is true for both the milk and the condensed milk.
  • Egg whites are much healthier for your heart and a great source for a weight loss diet. And the eggs are very important to the brownies decadence and how gooey they can be.
  • Healthy alternatives for the butter or margarine used in this recipe can mean even more heart health for you as well as keeping down on those nasty fats.
  • Finally, you don't have to reach for that chocolate with hundreds of calories and way too much sugar. Instead, there are healthy alternatives that can mean reduced fat, less sugar, and more energy for you.
