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, like Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Zero or Z-Sweet, powdered (either buy it powdered or whiz it in a coffee grinder or perhaps blender)
1 tsp Vanilla
1 Egg
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.

Next time I'm in P3, I'm just going to come stay with you. LOL!

Mmm this looks delicious. Just out of curiosity, what meals are part of phase 1?

Phase 1 is loading, only 2 days long. You eat whatever you want during loading, including lots of high-fat foods. I recommend eating anything you really miss while on the protocol so you get to have it one last time.

Sounds delicious, but isn't flax seed full of carbohydrates?

Hi! It is starch-free, and the fiber content is almost equal to the carb making it almost a net zero carb food. It is used extensively on low carb diet plans. As with everything, be careful the first time you try something new to make sure it doesn't cause an issue for you.
