Jennifer Eloff's wonderful brownies

Making these again because they were so completely awesome last time:
DECADENT COCOA BROWNIES
4 eggs
3/4 cup melted butter (175 mL)
Liquid sucralose to equal 1 cup (250 mL)
SPLENDA® Granular
1/2 cup granulated erythritol (125 mL)
11/2 tsp vanilla extract (7 mL)
1 cup Gluten-Free Bake Mix, (250 mL)
1/2 cup cocoa (125 mL)
1/2 tsp baking powder (2 mL)
1/4 tsp salt (1 mL)
MilkChocolate Frosting,

In food processor, process eggs. Add butter, liquid sucralose, OR SPLENDA® Granular, erythritol and vanilla extract; process.

In medium bowl, combine Gluten-Free Bake Mix, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Add to egg mixture; process. Spread in greased 8-inch (20 cm) square baking pan. Bake at 350°F (180°C)for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean. Cool, frost and refrigerate.

Yield: 25 servings
1 serving
113.5 calories
2.6 g protein
10.5 g fat
2.2 g net carbs

Chocolate Frosting:
1/3 cup SPLENDA® Granular
1/4 cup whole or skim milk powder (powdered if coarse)
3 tbsp powdered erythritol or Steviva Blend
2 tbsp whey protein powder
2 tbsp cocoa
2 tbsp butter, melted
3 tbsp heavy cream
Combine dry ingredients and stir in wet ingredients until frosting is very smooth. Use immediately.

I substituted stevia clear for the splenda (90 yes 90 drops!) in the brownie batter (havent made the frosting yet) and the batter is perfect tasting! They are in the oven now and I've been licking the bowl just like I did as a little girl when my mom would bake. omg! Now, just as then, I feel slightly sick!!! And it's oddly comforting. LOL!

Oh no! I was going to try these brownies and I think I mixed up the wrong bake mix because it is not gluten free. Can I still use it? This is what I mixed up from my notes. It must be an older recipe. I so have to get my recipes more organized!

Jen's Low-Carb Mix:

1 2/3 cups ground almonds
2/3 cup vanilla whey protein (or plain)
2/3 cup vital wheat gluten

Thanks, Jennifer! Unfortunately, I did not see the modifications until I had already made them. They were a little dense since I followed the previous recipe (and I see this modification has 14 cup less bake mix), but otherwise were great. Very rich and satisfying. I do have some of the bake mix left and will be trying them again with your modifications.
