Low Fat Low Carb Protein Brownies

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by PreciousInRopes

I'm on a low fat low carb diet. But I'm a chocoholic! So I searched and I searched, after not finding anything, I played in the kitchen and I came up with something I'm pretty happy with. It's not the best thing in the world, but when you have to have something kind of sweet and you haven't had your soy protein yet, give it a shot--you might like it.

I'm diabetic with liver problems, so am always looking for very low fat foods with a good protein to carb ratio (as opposed to looking for just low carb or low fat). This dessert does a better job than most of getting there. I am allergic to apples so used a large pear in place of the apples, and found the recipe to be tasty, if a little on the dry side. It definitely helped with my chocolate craving, though, and my very picky son loved it, so it's a winner in my book!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Core apples (do not peel everyone can use more fiber).
  2. Chop the apples up in your food processor into 'minced garlic' sized bits add a bit of water to help the process.
  3. Toss the apple bits in a pot or a skillet and heat up just before the juice boils then add the cocoa powder.
  4. Mix it all together so the cocoa is all melted and well blended set aside to cool.
  5. Mix the flours, soy protein and salt and sift.
  6. In a separate bowl beat egg whites vanilla and Splenda until soft peaks appear.
  7. Add flour mixture to the egg mixture and blend well then add the apple-cocoa sauce and blend.
  8. Mix in the chopped nuts if desired.
  9. Bake in a non-stick 8-inch square pan for 20-25 minutes at 350°F.
