No Guilt Moist and Chewy Brownies

Elaine Bovender


I adore brownies but it was so hard to find brownies that would fit into a low carb lifestyle and still taste good. After trial and error, I managed to revamp my traditional brownie recipe into this reduced carb/calorie version. This one has 171 calories and 11 net carbs per brownie as opposed to my traditional recipe that has 227 calories and 29 net carbs/serving and that doesn't include the frosting! These came out moist and chewy, just like my regular brownies and the best part is that I can enjoy one without the guilt! This recipe should fit in with most weight-loss/maintenance plans.
