I had bought some very good 100% chocolate to experiment with and saw that there was an easy brownie recipe on the wrapper. It was no problem adapting it for low-carb so I gave it a go. Pretty nice results so I shall share it with you!
I used Willie’s Cacao 100% Javan dark chocolate on my first batch, and a sugar-free dark chocolate sweetened with stevia on my second batch. They were both good, the sweetened bar batch was a bit less intense, so a matter of choice really. The stats are for the 100% Willie’s. Do you love that name!?
Easy Chocolate Brownies, Low-Carb & Gluten Free - Kim's Club
A very dark, rich brownie. Easy, peasy!
Author: Kim's Club
Recipe type: Dessert
180g/6.5oz chopped dark chocolate, preferably sugar-free ** see notes
90g/3oz salted butter
180g/6.5oz sugar substitute such as Swerve, Natvia, Truvia or Sukrin: boost with Stevia drops
(You may also add walnuts if you wish, my stats are without)
Preheat oven to 325F, 170C, Gas Mark 3. Prepare a 24cm/9in square pan by greasing and lining with baking parchment.
Melt the chocolate and butter together and set aside to cool a bit.
Whisk eggs and sugar substitute until light and creamy.
Fold in chocolate mixture.
Spoon into pan and bake approx. 20m or until a toothpick inserted in centre comes out with some crumbs but not clean (don't overcook). It will look brown on the edges and a bit puffed but will sink.
Cool completely. Cut into 36 squares (six on each side)
**(Cavalier or Torras which are sweetened with Stevia, Chocoperfection, Bakers or Hershey's baking - I used Willie's Cacao 100% Javan) You could also use Lindt high percentage dark chocolate but stats will vary...
One of my all time favourite treats so I just HAD to adapt them for low-carb! A note to you paleo-people: You can replace the cream cheese with thick coconut cream, OR if you can get it, coconut yogurt such as Co-yo. And use coconut oil or ghee instead of butter. These are so good I don’t want ANYONE to miss out!
