Looking for sugar free desserts recipe? Those sugar free brownies are the best brownie recipe ever! Your guest will never noticed it is sugar free. And more than that those sugar free brownies are also low carbs and gluten free!
What is better than a brownie when you are starving for chocolate ? Today I spent my morning at the supermarket screening labels to develop a handout for my future sugar free coaching program. It smells so great around the bakery section that it makes me hungry.But obviously I did not buy anything from the supermarket except some very dark chocolate (85%) to make this awesome recipe sugar free brownies.
This recipe is sweetened with Natvia a 100% natural sweetener safe for diabetic that you can get from here:Natvia 100% Natural Sweetener
but stevia or xylitol will works too. The batter is very low in carbs made of a mix of almond meal and coconut flour which means that this sugar free brownies recipe is ok if you have diabetes. I used olive oil for an healthier fat option but again any vegetable oil should work well too if you do not like the taste of olive oil in baking. I really love this new recipe I developed today because it is simple, does not required fancy ingredients and it is quick to bake. The texture of the brownie is light, moist, with a lovely chocolate flavour and crunchy nuts. It is not a fudgy brownie but it is low cabr and sugar free so YEAH!!! I have got a fudgy refined sugar free brownie recipe here if you prefer made with peanut butter. The coconut flour and almond meal is a low carb mix that I simply enjoy in any baked goods.
I did a batch with pecan nuts and one with hazelnuts (update 21/09/2015 I tested sugar free chocolate chips too!). Both are awesomely tasty and I am sure almonds or walnuts would work perfectly too. Decorate the top with extra coconut flour or almond meal if desired. This recipe is made in a sqaure brownie pan of 24 cm * 24 cm. It serves about 9 brownie squares.
Update on 21/09/2015, today I made the recipe again for breakfast. I used sugar free chocolate 100% sweetened with a mix of natural sweetener safe for diabetic: stevia and erythritol. I also incorporate sugar free chocolate chips in the brownie instead of nuts. The result was just amazing! I bought the sugar free chocolate from Countdown in NZ.
