Chewy Fudge Brownies

By ryanmmurano

A super low-carb sweet treat!

Chewy Fudge Brownies
Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cups Almond Flour

  • 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 6 tbsp butter melted

  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract

  • 1/2 tsp coffee extract (optional)

  • 1 cup sugar equivalent (I used liquid sucralose aka ez sweetz)

  • 6 egg yolks

  • 2 ounces sugar free chocolate chips

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees

  2. Combine almond flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, and baking powder with a whisk until well combined.

  3. Melt 6 tbsp butter and stir in the liquid sweetener, vanilla extract and coffee extract. (If you are using granulated sweetener then please add that to your dry ingredients.)

  4. Combine dry ingredients, butter, and 6 egg yolks. The batter comes out very thick (that's the yolks at work) I used a fork to mix this and then when it thickened up I used a rubber spatula.

  5. Fold in chocolate chips.

  6. Spread the mix into an 8x8 baking pan pushing it out to the edges with your fingers. Bake for 10 minutes

Sooooo good! My 14yo daughter made these for us last night and they were awesome. I told her to sub Truvia for the sugar replacement and to use half as much of it, because it's so sweet. She also used dark cocoa powder. They were so yummy. Brownies have always been my favorite but because of the carb overload I resist. First time I've eaten a brownie that wasn't full of bananas, black beans or tofu. Just simple ingredients and awesome chocolate.

I just baked them. They cooled enough to cut and I got to taste a few crumbs. I made a few changes to the recipe, nothing really major. I was unable to find sugar free chips so I grated half a bar of Baker's chocolate. Since it is unsweetened I increase the Splenda by a 1/2 cup. Next time I will probably drop that to a 1/3 or 1/4. They are a bit sweet for me. I also added a 1/3 tsp of cinnamon. I really like that with chocolate, no coffee extract though, I couldn't find it and didn't want to make it.The other thing I might add are some chopped pecans. I mean it's not like they have any nuts (does it count if they are 50% almonds?) I like the crunch of pecans and walnuts.

Finally! A diabetic friendly brownie recipe that has a good texture and tastes good! I will absolutely make again and will play around with the base. This is at least the 4th attempt with different recipes. Thank you. P.S. I love to bake.
