Mmm looks good!

Minnas 05-05-2007 08:29 AM

Oh man does that look GOOD!! I am definitely making these this weekend.

Kevin, once again...:notwrthy:

Tweaker Geek 05-05-2007 01:58 PM

Lookin' good, Kevin. I'm saving the recipe for when our zucchini will be ready this summer. I just made the Isomalt Brownies today - pretty hard to improve of them IMO!

Bar10der 05-05-2007 02:37 PM

Why do I come into your threads? :dunno:

Wahh, now I want chocolate.:laugh:

OH MY Kevin!! I cannot wait to make these...You are so kind to share these innovative recipes...Do you happen to shop at Whole Foods Market? I but everything at Netrition.com but I was going to take a look at Whole Foods...I still think Netrition has the best prices and selection, though!

Kevinpa 05-06-2007 04:28 AM

I actually find it way cheaper and more convenient to shop at netrition. Heck they deliver it to my door for $5 ....:laugh: I used to tip pizza guys more than that. If I cant get something there then I start thinking about looking elsewere.

woofie47 05-06-2007 05:15 AM

Kevin, thank you, thank you. these look so good. I do have a question tho,I'm one who has thrown stuff out because of the "taste", tried the lemon bars, thought it would surely be masked by the lemon couldn't eat them. I know your DW has the same problem too, I quess I want to know if I should try these. (did a couple of impossible pies and bisquits that were real good, though).

Mary my DW doesn't have a problem with Carbquik as a matter of fact she likes most everything I make with it......on the other hand she does on occation dislike things I have made with Carbalose. I can't think of any reason somebody would not like these...:laugh: My testers made short work of them....they are gone already.

Minnas 05-06-2007 06:58 AM

It's about 6:30 am and I haven't had my coffee yet but I'm seriously confused on the carb count on this. Can someone tell me the carb count per piece or for the whole batch?? Thanks.

woofie47 05-06-2007 07:16 AM

thanks Kevin, I think I should have said "carbolose," not carbquik.

Sharis, erythritol is a sugar alcohol and has 15 carbs per tablespoon but because of the way it is digested I subtract those carbs out and are not reflected in the net carbs. Erythritol is te only SA I do that with. The rest I count a percentage depending on which it is.

Minnas 05-06-2007 10:37 AM

Ah, o.k. I got it. Thanks.

clark153 05-06-2007 03:19 PM

Kevin, I remember in many of your other recipes that you mix Carbquick with WPI and WS with Not/Sugar. Why not in this recipe?

By the way, they look very good!

Back in the HC days I used to bake things with zucchini milk (which was just pureed zucchini) for texture. Kind of like some people use apple sauce.... anyway as I was shredding the zucchini I thought I'd try it and as it turned out it worked very nicely.

79.56 of the total 263.78 calories are from carbs.

Thats not how many carbs there are.

I see, how dumb of me:doh:

How many carbs are there per serving? And the recipe makes 9 servings right?

I hope this isn't another :doh: question!!

I have been meaning to say that these were very thick. Almost 2 1/2 inch high and 3 x 3......in other words a BIG brownie.

The next time I make them I am going to make them in a 9 x 13 dish and that will yeild 12 brownies about half as high and will only be about 3 carbs each.

That Girl 05-10-2007 08:35 AM

made them last nite and they are great! i added sf melted choc (dixie diner) and one sf milk choc bar, (because they taste :sick: by themselves) a couple of minutes after they came out of the oven,and then stuck them in the freezer to freeze. wow, what a great treat. this morning as they defrosted a bit as i was individually wrapping them, i took a small one. tastes very much like a pilsbury choc cake. the frosting was kinda crispy, very very good! kuddos again kevin!:clap: just to add, i got 16 out of mine, i cut them a little smaller.

rexsreine 05-10-2007 08:45 AM

Bella,
 
did you put chunks or shavings of the chocolate on the brownies to melt into a frosting when you took the brownies out of the oven?

Ginny

That Girl 05-10-2007 08:58 AM

i actually melted the bar and chips in the microwave first and then drizzled them on top of the cake. i should add, i cut the cake into 16 squares as it cooled, (it was just warm) and then added the melted choc. i then lifted the pieces onto a plate right away cause i figured the choc would get too hard and make a mess. this is the best choc cake recipe (i know its a brownie recipe) i have tasted so far... you won't be dissapointed!

rexsreine 05-10-2007 11:25 AM

Thanks for the clarification, Bella! Guess I need to go buy some zucchini...

Ginny

That Girl 05-10-2007 02:02 PM

anytime:hiya:

decodiana 05-10-2007 03:05 PM

Kevin,

Did you "pack" your zucchini or measure it loosely?

loose but slightly mounded

pita 05-10-2007 07:33 PM

kevin,
did you squeeze the water out of the zucchini or just add it as is?
TIA
