Well, I tried the brownies and added more sweetener and 1/2tsp of baking powder which made them more "cakey" and kind of eggy. Just kinda blah but of course I am bias to traditional sugary brownies. I did melt a little cream cheese and smeared it over the top of my brownie and it complimented quite well, taking the attention away from the lack of the natural sweet taste. So, would I make again? Probably not. I have made keto New York style cheese cake and it is absolutely amazing. I believe I will stick with that when I have a sweet tooth.Reply
I just made these, still cooking on the counter. I'm kind of glad I didn't read the reviews first or I wouldn't have made them. I did after I started, so continued on. Based on reviews I made these changes: 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup margarine, 5 whole eggs, 2 cups Splenda and probably 3 oz. Bakers chocolate. I also added a pinch of baking soda and a pinch of baking powder. I baked in an 8 inch pan for 30 minutes. I WILL make these again,. They are yummy! Planning to have one with sugar free ice cream for dessert. The only other adjustment I will make is to let the batter cool before adding the eggs. I also did not dust the pan with cocoa powder, just sprayed with cooking spray.Reply
I read the review about a slightly bitter taste in the finished brownie and decided to make a change before I made them. I substituted semi-sweet chocolate for 1 oz of the unsweetened chocolate. It eliminated some of the bitterness. I am going to make another batch and use 1 1/2 oz of semi-sweet and 1/2 oz unsweetened. Will let you know!Reply
So I've lead a low carb lifestyle for quite some time and I've been craving a brownies so I thought I would give this recipe a try. Please don't waste your time and effort, this is the worst tasting recipe ever. I followed it to a T, except for the baking time which I ended up with around 27 minutes.Reply
