Diabetes-Friendly Brownies

These delicious brownies are low in carbs, gluten-free, sugar-free – and guilt-free!

What you’ll need:

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tbsp. flax meal or flax powder

1/2 cup coconut flour

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1/2 cup Stevia

1/4 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 cup sugar-free chocolate chips

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

 

How to make them: 

  1. Preheat oven to 350F 
  2. Line a 9-inch square baking tin with baking paper. Grease the sides of the pan with non-stick spray and set aside. 
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the water, oil, yogurt, vanilla extract, and flax meal. Leave to stand for 15 minutes so the flax meal can react and bind everything together.
  4. Once the mixture has started to thicken (after 15 minutes) add the coconut flour, cocoa powder, stevia, baking soda, and salt and mix.
  5. Add the chocolate chips and walnuts and fold them in gently. 
  6. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking tin and spread the dough evenly throughout.
  7. Bake for 15 - 18 minutes until almost set, remove from the oven and allow to cool completely. 
  8. Place in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours (or overnight) to allow them to completely set — this will make them extra fudgy.
