A delightfully rich and delicious Low Carb Chocolate Brownie that would satisfy your sweet tooth craving without the guilt.
It has been over a month since we've been staying home and social distancing. Being home has definitely inspired me to better hone my baking skills. I must admit I am not a very experienced baker and only have a few recipes under my belt. But I do enjoy the baking process. I find it rather therapeutic. And, with the desire to try and still keep our carb and sugar intake low, I have been exploring with low carb and low sugar dessert recipes.
Last week, I was looking through my pantry and discovered that I do have a handful of ingredients that I can pull together to attempt as low carb and low sugar chocolate brownie recipe. The original recipe is keto-diet compliant but I did not have any monkfruit sweetener so I substituted with Truvia Baking Blend instead. Y'all, this Low Carb Chocolate Brownie is delicious and delightfully rich! It is not overly sweet and we liked it that way. I had reduced the amount of sugar substitute but you are welcome to add more if you prefer a sweeter version. I also baked the brownie through so it had a rich cake-like texture. I would definitely try reducing the bake time a little to achieve a fudge-like texture next time.
Give this simple and easy recipe a go to satisfy your sweet tooth craving without having to feel too guilty.
