Skinny Lemon Brownies - these brownies taste like lemon and only have 96 calories per serving! 


  • 1 cup of white flour
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 2 large or extra large eggs
  • 3/4 cup super fine sugar or granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp lemon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lemon zest
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher or sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Lemon Glaze
  • 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mist a nonstick 8 or 9-inch square pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the softened butter with the sugar and beat with a hand-held mixer until fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time until well incorporated. Add the lemon juice,  zest, and vanilla extract and mix just until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Add the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and beat at medium speed for about 1 to 2 minutes until nice and creamy.
  4. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for about 20-24 minutes. Try not to over bake. The edges will turn lightly golden brown. A toothpick should have moist crumbs. Let cool on a wire rack for at least 20 minutes.
  5. While cooling, prepare the glaze and then spread over the brownies and sprinkle on the zest. Cut into 16 brownies and enjoy!
  6. Serving size: 1 bar.
