I've had success using Vitafiber in all recipes calling for either corn syrup or Poly D.

I might try this recipe after we're done with all of our Thanksgiving goodies.

I tried a modified version of this recipe with vitafiber instead of poly-d, and the texture came out chewy and fudgy.

I'm going to have to make it again, because I used a recipe I found on pinterest suggesting using coconut oil instead of butter, and that was absolutely no good.

English - did you use the syrup or the granular Vitafiber? And did you use it 1:1 for the polyD?

I would also like to know what form of Vitafiber was used in place of polyd.

Preheat the oven to 275 degrees. Butter an 8x8 pan.
I made a half batch of these. 275 degrees must be a typo? Anywho, I cooked them longer......delish!

This was my first time using Carbalose and polyd.

Okay, so I made another pan of Carbalose/Vitafiber brownies again, since the coconut oil ones came out so terribly. Brownie texture and degrees of fudginess are really a personal thing, but I think that these are the best I've ever made, and I'm done experimenting. I added the baking soda because it is added to box brownie mixes, and I like my brownies to be fudgy but a little fluffy at the same time, I'm not a fan of dense brownies that resemble fudge candy.

The recipe I used:

1˝ sticks salted butter (melted)
˝ cup brown sugar substitute (I used Just Like Sugar)
1 1/2 cups sugar substitute (I used a combo of JLS, erythritol and xylitol)
˝ cup vitafiber powder
3 eggs
1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup cocoa powder
⅓ cup Carbalose
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup water

I mixed all of the dry ingredients first with the vitafiber, and then added the butter and liquid and I pretty much just mixed everything in a big bowl with a paddle until well blended. The batter can get really thick, so add a little water if needed. The consistency should be just a tad thicker than you would find in a box brownie mix. Pour into a greased 8x8 pan and bake in a 350 degree oven until the center is just set.

And you SWEAR that the Vitafiber does not cause GI distress? PINKY SWEAR!!

I might get some and try it. That recipe sounds TOO good to pass up.

lol Double pinky swear that it causes ZERO gastric distress for me and my family! I promise. It is so wonderful basically having corn syrup and "honey" again for recipes.

Dear Englishlit,

I know you posted this recipe a few years ago. How did you like it, do you still use this as your "go to" brownie recipe or have found a better one?

My favorite so far is Amazing Fudgy Keto Brownies by Martina Slajerova, but I am always open to something better!

Hi,

Yes, I still use this recipe, as well as a couple of recipes from King Arthur. One has zucchini, the other is just a regular fudge brownie recipe. I use them both, and just add about 1/4 cup of vitafiber syrup to give it that chewy, fudgy consistency.
