Make an appointment to include my moist, fluffy brownies on your holiday must-try list. Swapping out the oil in traditional brownie recipes for Diet Dr. Pepper leaves you with an incredibly soft, surprisingly low-fat dessert. While I know diet soda isn’t the most expected ingredient for your holiday desserts, give it a chance! The results will leave you ready to bake another chocolately, fudgey pan!
*I understand that the word healthy holds a different meaning for every individual, and I am not claiming the diet soda in this recipe makes these brownies healthy. For me, it is important to cut calories and fat in my cooking — making them skinny — and this is a trick I’ve learned along the way. I understand the research on diet soda. I am human and I occasionally enjoy a diet soda…even in my baking. If this recipe offends anyone, I apologize, and you can still cook these divine brownies with the traditional baking ingredients.
