I didn't have any cream cheese when I made these last night so I put in about 1/2 cup sour cream...mmmmm... They were a lot more moist. I can't wait to try it with the cream cheese... Thanks again!

I made a delicious lower fat version of this. I used 2 scoops chocolate protein powder, 1 tsp baking powder, 2 Tbs cocoa, 1/4 cup erythritol, 1/3 cup pumpkin puree, and 1/3 cup chia gel (and a little vanilla davinci's for synergy). Baked at 325 for 25 minutes. Oh--threw in some LC chocolate chips because I had some. delicious, moist, and filling for a fraction of the calories. I figured 450 cals for the whole pan.

I was one of those that had the brownies turn out dry. Mine were a lot like cornbread ...and chocolate cornbread is not "Good Eats". Anyway, I just made a batch with a few changes and they were delicious: Thank you MsWoods!!!

My version of Whey Not Brownies
Preheat oven to 305 degrees (yes, 305, not 350)

2 eggs
1 stick butter
2 1/2 scoops chocolate Body Fortress Whey Protein
2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 cup powdered Splenda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Bring butter to room temperature or even warmer, but don’t let it actually become liquid. Add eggs and mix with a fork. Add all dry ingredients and mix with the fork, only about 15 seconds. It won’t be completely mixed and you’ll see a few light colored spots – it’s ok. If you continue to mix, it’ll become gluey.

Spread into an 8 x 8, ungreased, pan (it’ll only be about ½ inch thick). Bake for 8 minutes (it will have risen a little). It won’t look done, but will continue to cook a bit after you’ve taken it out of the oven.

That's okay. I don't know what it is about my name, but I have gotten a lot of creative variations.

My contribution to this

individual Cinnamon roll thing
Mixture of erythritol, diabeti-sweet brown sugar and cinnamon 2 tbl butter melted in bottom of dish. I just guessed and stirred
mix in separate bowl
1 egg
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (body fortress)
2 tbl melted butter
2 tbl melted cream cheese
¼ tsp baking powder
Splenda to taste
Sprinkle of cinnamon
about a tablespoon walnuts

pour over topping on bottom of dish

Bake in small dish. My problem is I baked it for 10 minutes at 350 and it was still a bit doughy. So I put it in my microwave for about a minute. Turned it out onto a plate

Not eggy and quite good. I did not want to make a big batch.

Marcy-I'm so glad you gave it another go and found the recipe that works for you. It's such a versatile recipe and there are so many variations now. It really all depends on how many calories you can have and what protein powder you use. That makes a huuuuuuuge difference. I just love my Jay Robb because the carbs are so low. I can make a whole pan, throw some LC chocolate chips in it, and not feel bad if I eat all of it Lol.

Skeeter-I really need to get some diabeti-sweet brown sugar or something. I have pineapple DaVincis and I wanted to try to make a Whey Not Pineapple Upside Down cake with it, but the brown sugar is holding me back.

MsWoods....I made your brownies this afternoon. OH MY- MY -MY are they good!! I Had to cook them on 310* and I cooked them more like 12 minutes. At 8 they were still really runny. That could be the difference in ovens. Thanks for sharing all your wonderful recipes. I have company coming this weekend and I'll be serving these along with 1/2 cup of no sugar ice cream.

google Kevin's brown sugar recipe. I make it with erythritol and 2 Tbs molasses only. whip it for 3-4 minutes with my balloon whipper. perfect brown sugar that i put on top of EVERYTHING--my faux oatmeal, in with my greek yogurt, in my "brownies"--everything. it is a great recipe.

Ms. Woods,
You should be able to find Sugar Twin Brown (it's saccharin). (I found it at Wal Mart) It doesn't taste as good as Diabeti Sweet but its easier to find. And it doesn't cause intestinal upset and it's way less expensive.
But you can't use as much so you lose that volume which is needed in some recipes.
Someone posted a mock brown sugar recipe but I can't remember where......this getting old sucks! LOL

can anyone tell me what I did wrong? I used Designer Whey chocolate, and followed the original chocolate recipe. 1/4 cup granulated splenda, and then davinci vanilla until it was sweet enough. I hope this isn't what messed it up! I didn't want all the carbs of the granulated. I baked it 325 for 15 minutes. The taste is okay, a little bland, and it barely rose, and it is like SOLID inside, like squishy a little but completely solid and weird.

Ive tried this recipe like about three times so far and I finally got it to work for me. I surprised myself on how good it was when i went back for seconds just now...I could barely take a bite of the first few batches.

So this is how I got this to work for me:

Melt one stick of butter just until soft
Mix in 2 eggs
6 packets of splenda
1 tsp of vanilla
1 tbs of baking powder
2 scoops of designer whey french vanila protein powder
a sprinkle of nutmeg
a sprinkle of cinnamon

I mixed all this up until smooth and then spooned the mixture in a well sprayed muffin tin or I used a brownie like tin pan..squares not circles. But im sure that doesnt matter. I filled them about 1/2 an inch to 3/4 of an inch thick in 9 muffin holes.

Cooked on 250 for 6 minutes... I know short... maybe my oven is super strong. I took them out almost right after they puffed up and they still looked a little wet on top but I checked with a toothpick at 6 mins and it was good... so i took them out and let them cool in the pan...

After a few minutes they poped right out and they did deflate a little bit but they are thick and muffin like..bread like..very buttery..sort of corn bread like.

I figure they are 1.5 carbs each.

I spread a tsp of cream cheese on top and it was soo filling and yummy. DEF gonna be a regular on had item once school starts for me.

So I decided to try these and then FORGOT to put in any butter! To my surprise, they came out just great. I did three scoops of the protein powder (EAS from Sams Club), three eggs, 1/2 c sugar equiv. (Malitol), 1 heaping teaspoon of baking powder and about 1/4 cup of Davinci SF syrup. Used a silicon mini muffin pan sprayed well with Pam. They have almost an angel food texture, but not quite. I cut one horizontally and made a mini strawberry shortcake dessert last night. These are good - who would know from 1 stick of butter to no butter and still delicious.

Chanty, how much peanut butter did you put in? like 2 tablespoons? and with how much cream cheese? I'm out of butter and thinking I can sub those two instead, yes? no? maybe?

Just made the vanilla ones and chocolate ones. I only had 1/2 stick butter left in frig so subbed 3 oz cream cheese along with 2 tbl butter in each one. Little dry too dry, both of'em.

Still like the taste though, cakey'ish-like. Next batch I'll add sliced or chopped almonds and the amount of butter or fat that the original recipe calls for.

fun way to get protein powder in though, as I'm tired of the shake recipes I've been using.

"Apple" Cobbler

Hello ladies, I have another variation for you all.

"Apple" Cobbler

First I made this recipe that I found somewhere on line (wish I could give credit but I copied it a while ago and filed it away until today.)

"Apples"
3-1/2 cups zucchini - peeled, seeded, and sliced or chopped
1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp (5 Tbsp total) fresh lemon juice
1 apple flavor tea bag
Water to cover half way

1/2 cup sugar-equivalent (I used Somersweet and a little diabetisweet brown)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Put the zucchini, lemon juice, water and tea bag in a medium saucepan with lid. Cook covered over medium heat stirring occasionally. Cook around 10 minutes or until the zucchini are tender/soft, but still firm like an apple would be.

Drain. Stir in the sweetener and spices and put into bottom of cake pan.

Then make the basic MsWoods recipe:
1 stick butter
2 eggs
1/4 cup protein powder
1/2 cup sweetener
(I add some baking powder too)

Melt butter, add eggs and mix. Then add protein powder and sweetener. Mix well and put on top of apples. Bake at 325 for about 15-20 minutes or until brown.

YUM! My kids ate this and never knew it wasn't real apples!!
