P3 Chocolate Brownie Bites with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting


My son's 6th birthday was coming up and we were discussing what kind of cake he wanted. He knows I have been only eating certain things and no sugar, so he asked me if I'd be having any of his birthday cake. I planned to be on Phase 3 at the time, so the goal was to make a cake that I could eat (no starch or sugar) and that was also tasty enough for my kid. The result is this AMAZING chocolate cake (or brownie) with chocolate cream cheese frosting. YUM! I tested it as cupcakes first and will post the recipe here:

Chocolate Brownie Bites (makes 6 small or 4 regular size cupcakes)

1/2 cup Raw Almonds or Pecans, ground (or you can use Almond Meal)
3 T Cocoa Powder
pinch Salt
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 cup Erythritol, like Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Zero or Z-Sweet

Mix the above well, then add:

2 T Butter, melted
1 Egg, beaten
1/4 tsp Vanilla
2 T Water as needed

Preheat oven to 350*. Spoon into cupcake liners. It's enough for 6 small, or about 4 regular cupcakes. Bake about 25 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.


Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting:

2 T Cream Cheese, softened
1 T Cocoa Powder
12-15 drops Liquid Stevia
Milk or Cream as needed to get the right texture

and a strawberry was the perfect topping :)
