Recipe: Healthy Chocolate and Walnut Brownies

I think it's time for both of us to eat more healthy food than we used to before. Living in Melbourne where majority of the people are very conscious of what they put in their mouth, making healthy and organic food really cheap here and it's a really good advantage to us. So I say today, is the day!

So I made a very healthy chocolate and walnut brownies just now. And the very best part of it was, I used olive oil and Greek yogurt in the brownies mixture to replaced butter and milk. Sounds Mediterranean 'nuff for ya? Lol. And nutritionally speaking a piece of this brownies is just equivalent to 150 cal only (source:! Oh yeah! Well anyway I've simplified the method to make it from the original recipe but nonetheless the brownies still yield that perfect moist, chocolaty and yummy brownies. So here goes the recipe:
