Sweetdreams..No it was only one cup of mixed pecans/walnuts. I think you can do whatever kind of nuts you want..Even throw in some almonds.

Dream: Well, I do think they would be more brownie-like. You might have to add a bit more liquid as cocoa is like "chocolate flour"..

And, for the chocolate chips, you could chop up a 85 percent Lindt bar or some SF Dove candies or make your own from Lauren's site.

I'm usually a lurker but I had to bump this! Tried it last night and it is hands-down the best low-carb dessert I have ate so far!

Thanks, lemon for bumping this up. I got some Carbsmart chocolate chips, so, I think I will make a batch up. I freeze them individually, so I don't eat the whole pan at once..

I just now made these and they are wonderful! I used some pecan fluff that I get at the amish bulk food store. They are so good and easy. Thanks for sharing this recipe with the rest of us.

I must have done something wrong here, but I'm not sure what. I kept checking and re-checking the recipe because the batter was so wet. I baked for 20 minutes, and even after sitting in the fridge overnight they wont hold together as 'bars'.

The taste is very good, though, so what I think I'm going to do is freeze the remainder and then process it for a cookie/crumb crust for a cheesecake later.

If the batter is too wet, maybe bake it longer at a lower temperature next time.

I know this thread is pretty old, but I ran across it yesterday and made these last night and they are SOOOOOO good. Tasted kind of like chocolate chip cookies, really moist and wonderful. Thanks for the recipe.

I buy my sf chocolate chips in the baking section at the super Wal Mart.

I made these tonight, and it may have been a BIG mistake. I don't won't to leave them alone, they are that good! I used almond flour, and just noticed when I was posting that I was supposed to use baking SODA, and I used baking POWDER. But, if they were any better, I couldn't stand it. The sf choco chips were from Chocoperfection. I had bought them last summer, and never used them. In fact, I forgot about them. They are soooo good in this. The nuts I used were walnuts. This is for sure a keeper. Even non lo-carbers would like this. Oh, and I used the Ideal sweetener, which is xylitol.

Thanks for the recipe CarolynF! And thanks to the ones that bumped it up.
Carole

after a week of baking disasters of dry cookies and awful black bean cake I was hesitant to try another dessert, but wow i'm glad I tried this! It tastes exactly like a high carb toll house chocolate cookies! I used almond flour and a chopped 85% lindt bar. Mine turned out very soft, so i'm thinking i should've packed my almond flour or baked longer, but wow they taste delicious. One of the best lc desserts i've tried, thank you for the recipe!

okay after re-reading the recipe, i realized i used a whole stick of butter. that would explain the extra moisture, but I'm sure Paula Deen would approve they were still great
