P3 Flax Brownies
I needed a chocolate fix, which interestingly, is pretty easy to get since I've been on HCG. It doesn't take much for me to feel satisfied now. Before I would have eaten at least half the pan of brownies, and here I was satisfied with one. Love it!
This is a small recipe - I baked it in my Pampered Chef Small Bar Pan. You can double or triple it for a larger pan, if needed.
2 Tbsp Butter, room temp
1/2 cup Erythritol, powdered (either buy it powdered or whiz it in a coffee grinder or perhaps blender)
1 tsp Vanilla
1/4 cup Cocoa powder
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 cup Flax Meal (again, if you have flax seeds, you can whiz them up)
1 tsp Baking Powder
3 Tbsp Cream or Half and Half
1 Tbsp Water
20ish drops Liquid Stevia
1/4-1/2 cup Walnuts, if desired
Preheat oven to 350* and grease your baking pan. Using a fork, cream the butter. Mix in powdered erythritol, then vanilla, then the egg. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Pour into pan and bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
I frosted mine with some chocolate cream cheese frosting and put strawberries on top. My 6 year old loved this dessert, too.
