A moment on the lips....forever on the hips
I'm telling you, I'm trying to stick to my fitness/diet regime, my husband and I are both training for races and I have a killer sweet tooth.....this is the BEST brownie recipe ever! I'm doing the Belly Fat Cure diet and was wondering..hmmmm what could I make for a dessert for Valentines day???
Well this is the ticket!
Check out the height, super moist and it even has a chocolate glaze topping! Yes the candy hearts were added for presentation, but you can always pick those off....or hey, eat them with the low sugar/carb values of this brownie, I think you can live a little!
Here's the recipe-
Outrageous Chocolate Brownie
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups Joseph's Maltitol Sweetener syrup (got at Whole Foods)
1 1/2tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
Optional glaze: (option I think not....ummm have to! yum!)
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 oz unsweetened baking chocolate
1/4 cup maltitol sweetener syrup
2-5 packets Truvia, to taste
1. for the brownies: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 8" square pan. In a bowl, blend softened butter with maltitol syrup and vanilla. Add eggs and beat well. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Add to egg mixture and stir until well blended. pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 40-45 minutes. Cool Completely.
2. For the glaze: Heat cream and chocolate over low heat and stir frequently until melted. Remove from heat and whisk in maltitol syrup until smooth. Add Truvia one packet at a time to taste.
3. Pour glaze over the brownies and let set before cutting into 2" squares.
Ok here's the great part.....ZERO sugar and only between 5-20 carbs(which is only 1 carb point on the diet)!!
