From one person who is currently on the Atkins diet, this is actually pretty good compared to what you could have when not this diet. I've been looking for all kinds of recipes to substitute for a chocolate fix, but they used ingredients like almond flour, soy flour, etc. (things I don't have). This is super quick and super simple. I would say it's more of a chocolate fix than breakfast b/c I don't have chocolate for breakfast. Ha. Has more egg than brownie consistency, which is fine. My fix was satisfied!
Not sure what I did wrong, but I just got a weird bowl of microwaved eggs! I don't think I mixed it well enough, although I thought I had. I may try this again when I have a chance b/c it still sounds delicious!
This was a good warm chocolate fix. To be honest, it sort of just tasted to me like sweet chocolate-flavored scrambled eggs. But it was surprisingly a good combination! I'm not on a low-carb diet, so maybe I will add a tablespoon of flour next time. Or maybe not, it really wasn't too bad as chocolatey eggs!
