These are my favorite low-carb brownies. Period.
The original recipe came from my friend Didi years ago and I just tweaked it a bit over the years. But this one still does it for me every time! Especially when topped with Chocolate Crème Frosting!
They are more the cakey kind of brownies, so this recipe also really lends itself to chocolate cake applications. It holds up well to slicing into layers and fillings! Or Chocolate muffins!
Ingredients:1/2 cup erythritol, powdered
1/4 tsp stevia extract
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup butter, softened
3 ounces of unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 Tbsp. vanilla whey protein powder
2 Tbsp. vital wheat gluten
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda

These brownies are totally yummy as they are. But here’s what takes them over the edge!
