Yummy carbquik brownie recipe

This is an awesome carbquik brownie recipe!!! As with a lot of carbquik recipes, it is better the next day.
The first time I made them I ate most of them in 2 days. The next time I made them I made 1/4 of the recipe.

1 1/3 c. Carbquik
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 2/3 c. splenda
1/2 c (1 stick) butter (I used unsalted)
4 packets Nestle Toll House choco bake (I bought this at the regular grocery store in the baking isle. I got the recipe off of the back of the box. It is a new product from Nestle. If you can't find it, the conversion, according to the back of the box is 1 packet = 3 level TB baking cocoa powder + 1 TB shortening or oil)
2 large eggs
2 TB water
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350. Grease 13x9 inch pan.
Combine flour, baking soda in small bowl. Stir sugar, butter, choco bake, eggs, water and vanilla extract vigorously in large bowl. Stir in flour mixture. Spread into pan. Bake 18 to 22 minutes.

I don't know if they made me stall, but I am guessing if you eat 3/4 of a tray of brownies in one weekend low carb or not, you will probably stall. I don't weigh myself regularly but I didn't notice a difference in my pants.
Bon Appetit!

I love to use Choco Bake..These sound wonderfully chocolately..Probably have to package them up individually and freeze them..portion control.

Yeah, the freezer doesn't do it for me... too close to the microwave. I just 1/4 the recipe. 1/4 of the recipe has about 550 calories and about 13 g carbs. I can eat that in one day and I can still be in my cal/carb range.
The brownies totally satisfy my sweet tooth. I admire those who can just do strict low carb/whole foods blah blah blah, but for some reason I always end up dreaming about chocolate.

The whole pan, based on the full recipe above works out to this:

Whole batch with granular Splenda:
2164 Calories; 195g Fat; 51g Protein; 152g Carbohydrate; 78g Dietary Fiber; 74g Net Carbs

Whole batch with liquid Splenda:
2004 Calories; 195g Fat; 51g Protein; 112g Carbohydrate; 78g Dietary Fiber; 34g Net Carbs

So that only comes out to 74 net carbs for the entire thing! I actually got 64 but I don't count any carbs from eggs or baking soda or anything like that so I'm guessing it might add up to about 10?

Anyways, I forgot the frosting!!! I think I got this from the recipe board but I can't remember.

1 package of cream cheese, softened a little bit
1 package cool whip (the smaller one)
A little bit of splenda
about 1 TB vanilla cook and serve pudding mix

Combine everything and mix with an electric mixer. OMG!!! This is wonderful by itself... but spread on the brownies it was an incredible out of body experience.
mmmmmm *drool*

Oh, and it definitely wasn't bitter. I'm pretty picky about LC stuff too.

Now I need to go to a store. I used to make brownies with choco bake when I was a child with my Grand Aunts - still have the recipe book that called for it but I have not seen choco bake in years. I might be able to lc my old recipe and teach my daughters - what wonderful memories that one product brings back!

Doesn't that choco-bake stuff have trans fats in it?

And Cool Whip? Trans fats and sugar?

Sorry, hate to be a party pooper. I ask because I care.

I did notice they firm up in the refridgerator. I was thinking of crumbling some in to the bottom of a pan for a cheese cake crust.

If you wait until the next day and put them in the fridge, they will not be too crumbly! They will still be a little bit crumbly, but they are good so I don't care what the form is.

Well, does choco-bake stuff have trans fats or not? they sound yummy but I really try and stay clear of transfat for the most part.

Never mind it does:


INGREDIENTS: COCOA, COCONUT OIL, SOYBEAN OIL, PARTIALLY HYDROGENATED COTTONSEED OIL*, TBHQ AND CITRIC ACID (TO PRESERVE FRESHNESS).

I crumbled some of these in to the bottom of muffin tins and added the cream cheese muffin mix to them. Yum. I need to stay away from this board to many tasty treats!

I am thinking that Poly-D would give the brownies a boost. They just crumble away and need some texture. I like the way the ingredients come together...just some added "chew" would help.

Brownies plus

If you use 4 cups of Splenda, please do add up the carbs. It's way too much. Try using baking Stevia, organic Xylitol, or Erythritol, or even low glycemic blue agave (way sweeter than sugar).

Also, you guys using Splenda, do you know what it is? Please research it. I do believe it was a pesticide before it was a sweetener...found sweet by accident. Japanese studies say it shrinks the thymus, among other things.

Just wanted to let you know that natural is better for your beautiful bodies.

Kathy, just curious...where do you see 4 cups of Splenda? I've searched the thread and can't find it.

Uh.... agave has a fructose level higher than even high fructose corn syrup.

Fructose is billed as a low gylcemic "natural" sugar but it isn't particularly good for you.

I'd take splenda over fructose any day.

Brownie Beware

I followed this recipe very closely. It looked right as it went into the final baking pan and when it came out of the oven, but it turned out to be one of the worst tasting brownies I have ever tasted. It had a dry, chalky, ashy taste. Even a glass of milk could not take away the bad taste. Sorry, this one just does not work, it just tastes BAD!

Trying now....I know raw eggs....had to taste though. Tasted ok. Could definetly taste the splenda. I used less cocoa as I dont think splenda would have cut it with that much cocoa. Will post and share my results!
