Brownies are not that hard to recreate without any flour or sugar. We just need to use almond flour and a sweetener.
There are many low-carb brownie recipes out there. Here’s my version.
My inspiration was Pret-A-Manger brownies. I used to love them back in the day before going low-carb.
If you never tried them, they are very dense, fudgy and moist. I use a lot of chocolate and cocoa powder in this recipe, so the taste is very rich. Keep reading “Simple low-carb brownies”
One of the hardest aspects of a low-carb diet is cutting out bread, cakes and other flour-based treats. I love bread, so the absence of it created a big baguette-shaped hole in my soul.
Although I have now found ways to create reasonable low-carb substitutes for most of my favourite recipes, I really do wish this book was available years ago. It would have saved me many messy failed experiments!
All recipes in this book are gluten-free, sugar-free, and low-carb.
