Yum Yum Brownies from Gnom Gnom
Sometimes a girl needs Brownies. And then bam! You stumble across a fantastic low carb Fudgy Brownie recipe from Gnom-Gnom. They are only 1g net carbs per serving. She topped hers with a flakey sea salt (which I totally need to try), however I topped mine with walnuts because that's what I had on hand. These are delish, and have been taste tested by myself, daughter and her friends.
The trick to these is to use room temperature eggs, and do NOT over bake in an 8x8 baking dish. And be careful on what artificial sweetener you use because it will make a difference in the end result.
Fudgy Brownies (from Gnom Gnom)
I used different brands of ingredients as her, so I'm posting her recipe with the products I used. Results may vary depending on what you use. I advice you to click here to see her recipe, video and notes on making these.
9 tablespoons unsalted butter
14 tablespoons Swerve (highly recommended, other sweeteners can effect the results)
11 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs at room temperature
3/4 cup almond flour
flakey sea salt or chopped walnuts
Position a rack in the lower third of your oven and preheat to 350°F/180°C. Line with parchment paper the bottom and sides of a 8x8-inch baking pan. Set aside.
Add butter, sweetener, cocoa powder and salt to a medium heatproof bowl. Melt over a water bath or using the microwave. You will want to heat it up until all the butter and sweetener has melted and the mixture is well incorporated. Remove from heat and allow the mixture to cool slightly.
Add one egg at a time, stirring well after each one until completely incorporated. Add almond flour, stirring vigorously until fully blended (about a minute). Pour into prepared pan.
Bake for 15-25 minutes (we do 23), or until the center is just set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out slightly moist. This really does vary (a lot!!) from oven to oven (think convection etc), so give them a check from minute 15 the first time around.
Sprinkle with flakey sea salt (optional) and allow to cool completely on a rack. Lift brownies using the edges of the parchment paper and cut into desired size (we do 16!). To get extra clean edges, place in the freezer for 10 minutes prior to cutting.
Enjoy with a cold glass of almond milk, or cup of coffee!
