CHOCOLATE BROWNIES ('GIFT IN a JAR')
This recipe comes from a cookbook called: "America's Best Cookbook for Kids With Diabetes". (I figured it is a pretty good book for anyone with diabetes though)...It was written in 2005 by C Bartley. A friend gave me the book and the recipes that I have tried are awesome. I think this one would be a great "Gift In a Jar" diabetic recipe so I have done that here.

How to Make CHOCOLATE BROWNIES (DIABETIC FRIENDLY)

Step-by-Step

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt.
    Stir in walnuts.
  2. In A Small Bowl: Using electric mixer, 2 lg. eggs, 1/3 c. soft margarine and 1 tsp. vanilla at high speed for 1 minute, until well mixed.
    Add: 1/2 C. Unsweetened Applesauce and beat just until blended.
    Add: Flour mixture and mix at low speed just until blended.
  3. Spread: Batter evenly in prepared pan and bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
    Let cool completely in pan on a rack and cut into 16 squares.
  4. EXCHANGES PER SERVING:
    1/2 Starch
    1/2 Other Carbohydrate
    1 Fat

    Nutrient Analysis Per Serving:
    Calories - 111
    Protein - 2g
    Fat - 6g
    Saturated fat - 1g
    Carbohydrate - 13g
    Fiber - 1g
    Cholesterol - 27 mg
    Sodium - 106 mg
  5. TIP: Unsweetened cocoa powder has only 115 calories and 4 grams of fat per 1/3 cup (75 mL), whereas 1 oz (25g) of unsweetened baking chocolate has 139 calories and 14 grams of fat. Cocoa has just as much rich chocolate flavor as baking chocolate, so substituting cocoa is a good way to cut fat.
