Low Carb Brownies

1023px-Brownies_with_floral_painted_backgroundRecently I put a challenge on Facebook to send me recipes for a diabetic makeover. This recipe was already decent in moderation but I made some changes to make it more diabetic friendly. I substituted the all purpose flour (Carb: 47.7g, Fibre: 1.7g, Protein: 6.5g) for soy flour (Carb: 16g, Fibre: 6g, Protein: 20g), 1/2 c sugar (Carb: 100g, Fibre: 0, Protein: 0) for 1/2 tsp stevia, yes I said tsp NOT cup, as Stevia is 300 time more sweeter than sugar, (Carb: 0, Fibre: 2.3g, Protein: 0) and finally, unsweetened applesauce (Carb: 13.7g, Fibre: 1.3g, Protein: 0.2g) for shredded, peeled and seeded zucchini (Carb: 2.2g, Fibre: 0.6g, Protein: 0.8g).

The result is a moist diabetic chocolate treat and only 2 Weight Watchers points! Enjoy!

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
