High-Protein Low-Carb Brownies

These are fudgy, if unusual brownies. Not super sweet, but sweet enough. Feel free to substitute any kind of nuts for the almonds -- the original recipe called for walnuts. Loosely based on a recipe from "What Every Pregnant Woman Should Know" by Gail Sforza Brewer, modified for a somewhat diabetic diet.


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F Oil 9X13 baking pan.
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat.
  3. Remove from heat and add apple sauce. Stir and add vanilla.
  4. In a separate cup combine powdered and evaporated milk, and stir until lumps disappear. Add to apple sauce mixture.
  5. Stir in cocoa, mixing thoroughly. Add remaining ingredients and pour into a baking pan.
  6. Bake fro 25 minutes or until a knife inserted 1/3 way across comes out clean.
  7. Cool and cut into pieces.
  8. Serve with cream cheese, ice cream or with milk.
  9. If you prefer a more cake-like brownie, add 1/2 teaspoon baking powder along with the salt.

these were pretty good with a little tweeking. I added some stevia (1/3 cup), some brown rice flour (1 cup), 1 teaspoon of baking powder and added an additional 1/2 cup of evaporated milk. I wouldnt consider them low carb but high fiber perhaps. Good when you need a chocolate fix!
