45g whole wheat flour

46g refined white flour

50g cocoa powder

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1 large egg room temperature

2 teaspoons vanilla essence

80g plain nonfat yogurt

80 ml honey

50g chopped dark chocolate (or dark chocolate chips)


Preheat oven to 180 C, and line an 8-inch square pan with butter paper. Whisk together both the flours, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk the butter, egg, and vanilla. Stir in the yogurt. Stir in the honey. Add the flour mixture, stirring until just incorporated. Fold in some of the chopped dark chocolate. Spread batter into the prepared pan, and gently press the remaining chopped chocolate into the top. Bake for 20 minutes. Cool to room temperature in the pan. Let the brownies set for at least 3 additional hours before slicing for the fudgiest texture.
