MIRACLE BROWNIES

HERE IS MY RECIPE FOR MIRACLE BROWNIES THAT I HAVE ADAPTED FROM THE RECIPE FOUND HERE

Total Time: 55 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • 1 cup Stevia
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs (room temp is best)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 oz unsweetened chocolate, melted
  • 1 cups flax seed meal
  • 1/2 T. baking powder
  • 6 T. heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup water

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350 F and grease a 8X8 pan.

1) Cream the butter until fluffy.

2) Add the stevia to the butter and cream them together until fully combined (aim for a fluffy texture).

3) Add the vanilla and beat the eggs into the mixture, one at a time.

4) Add salt and cocoa, beat well.

5) Add chocolate, beat until fluffy.

6) Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well to combine.

7) Pour into a pan and bake for 30-35 minutes until top springs back. (You can also test if they're ready by sticking a toothpick in the brownies. If it comes out clean, or almost-so, they're done.)

Topping Ingredients:

  • 1/2 c. heavy whipping cream
  • 2 oz. unsweetened chocolate, melted
  • 1 T. butter 
  • 4-5 T. Stevia
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 c. Chopped Pecans 
  • Preparation:


    1)Heat all ingredients (except for nuts) in a small pot on the stove over low heat until melted and thickened. 
    2)Spread over top of cooled brownie and top with nuts. 
    When cooled, cut into squares.
     

~ CARB COUNT BREAKDOWN ~ 

Actual Brownies:

  • 1/2 stick of butter ~ 0g net carbs
  • 1 cup Stevia ~ 25g carbs, but I am counting 0g net carbs -All the "carbs" in stevia / erythritol are sugar alcohols, so they have a net count of 0.
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla ~ 0g net carbs
  • 2 eggs (room temp is best) ~ 1g net carbs
  • 1/4 cup cocoa ~ 4g net carbs
  • 1/2 tsp salt ~ 0g net carbs
  • 2 oz unsweetened chocolate, melted ~ 6g net carbs
  • 1 cups flax seed meal ~ 0g net carbs
  • 1/2 T. baking powder ~ 0g net carbs
  • 6 T. heavy whipping cream ~ 3g net carbs
  • 1/3 cup water ~ 0g net carbs

Topping:

  • 1/2 c. heavy whipping cream ~ 4g net carbs
  • 2 oz. unsweetened chocolate, melted ~ 6g net carbs
  • 1 T. butter  ~ 0g net carbs
  • 4-5 T. Stevia ~ I am counting 0g net carbs -All the "carbs" in stevia / erythritol are sugar alcohols, so they have a net count of 0.
  • 1 tsp. vanilla ~ 0g net carbs
  • 1/4 c. Chopped Pecans ~ 1g net carbs


TOTAL CARBS FOR THE ENTIRE BROWNIE RECIPE IS ~ 25g Net Carbs



Divide the  25g. of net carbs by the number of squares to figure the net carb count in each brownie.

  2. These look amazing. I just found your site by Googling milled flax seed :) I have a bag of the Wild Roots but wasn't sure what to do with it. Is it the same as the meal in this recipe?

  3. I tried the recipe yesterday.. they were yummy - but I used less stevia and they were still super sweet. Next time Ill cut down even more on the sweetener & add more natural chocolate to increase flavor! The texture was AWESOME!

  6. Hi, just found this recipe on Pinterest. The recipe calls for 1 cup of stevia...are you using something like Truvia? Or just a stevia product that measures cup for cup to sugar. Will be making these as a special treat. Thanks so much for the recipes.
