Flax Meal Brownies with Xylitol Chips

Brownies are my favorite food. It is rare to meet one that I do not like. I even find that they do not need to be overly sweet to be delicious. I really like brownies sweetened with xylitol. It keeps the carb count low, so I can have them guilt free, even for breakfast! I tried this recipe here (minus the coffee) and added my home made chunks.


Flax Brownies
(THM friendly, S snack)
118 Calories, 11 g fat, 3.1 carbs, 2.3g fiber

3/4 cup flax meal
3/4 cup xylitol (I love this brand)
1/2 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
3 oz melted 100 % cacoa
4 eggs
Home made chunks *see below

On low heat, melt the butter and chocolate. In a blender, add all the other ingredients. Pour in the butter and chocolate mix and blend on "batter mode." Pour in a brownie pan, 8X10 or 8X8.  Sprinkle with home made chocolate chunks and bake at 350 for 15-16 min until set.

Home made chocolate chunks

6 oz unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup powdered xylitol
2 T butter
Optional:
1 drop peppermint, spearmint, or wild orange essential oils

Melt 6 oz of 100% no sugar added chocolate with 2 T butter and 1/2 cup powdered xylitol or a stevia mix. Pour in on a cookie sheet covered with foil or parchment and freeze until hard. Chop it into chunks. Keep in the fridge or freezer. You can easily make peppermint chips by adding 1 drop peppermint essential oil or for my favorite, add 1 drop orange essential oil before pouring on the pan. Put in the freezer to harden, then break into chunks and store in the fridge or freezer. Great for when you need a chocolate fix!

Looking for a gluten free cake that is fluffier? Try this one.
