Description: Banta friendly
KI total carbs 1.74

Ingredients: 8 tablespoons butter (1 stick) -- unsalted
2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
2/3 cup almond flour/meal
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup Splenda -- or equivalent
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract

How To Prepare: Preheat oven to 350┬░. Grease an 8-inch square pan and set aside.

Melt the butter and chocolate together in the top of a double boiler or in a microwave set to medium power, stirring occasionally until smooth.
Set the mixture aside to cool slightly.

Mix the almond meal, baking powder and salt together in a small bowl; set aside.

Stir the sugar substitute in to the chocolate mixture, beat in the eggs and vanilla by hand; then carefully fold in the bake mix mixture. Add nuts if desired.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted halfway between the center and edge of the pan comes out fairly clean,

Review Date: Thu April 7, 2005 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Price you paid?: None indicated | Rating: 9 

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Rich decadent and easy to make
Cons: only can eat 1 a day

My DH and I have tried many brownie recipes and this is our favorite.

I use 2 Tbsp. Davinci Raspberry in the batter (just enhances the chocolate). In place of 1 cup Splenda, I use 1/3 cup Splenda, scant 1/4 cup Erythritol, scant 1/4 cup Diabetisweet. For an extra treat, I mix up the cream cheese frosting w/ Irish Cream or Kahlua Davinci's. Best brownies - would make an excellent bottom to a decadent cheesecake.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Timing was right; baked well with no unbaked :"raw" spots
Cons: not "rich" enough, and splenda taste was part of problem

I am at a point in low-carbing where I am trying to find goodie recipes, and this one seemed, by ingredients to have what I wanted. So I made it today. Almond meal as an ingredient instead of flour seemed VERY rich, plus the butter and eggs. But the finished product was dry, and the sweet taste seemed very chemical to me. Maybe if I use an extra egg or add oil or use another sweetener it would work better.
