Easy Brownie Pie
In a small microwaveable bowl, melt butter and chocolate about 2-4 minutes on 50% power,
stirring after each minute. Cool to room temperature.
Beat eggs, butter and chocolate with
electric mixer in a medium bowl about 30 seconds or until smooth. Add molasses, Carbquik,
Splenda and vanilla. Beat 2 minutes. Pour into a greased 9" glass pie plate. Sprinkle with
Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
Makes 8 servings.
Per Serving: 240 Calories; 19g Fat; 8g Protein; 15g Carbohydrate; 9g Dietary Fiber; 6g Net Carbs
- 3/4 cup almond flour
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon ginger
- 1/8 teaspoon cloves
- Pinch nutmeg
- Pinch allspice
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg white
- 1/2 cup granular Splenda
- 1/4 teaspoon blackstrap molasses
- 1/8 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 325°F.
In a small bowl, blend spices and salt with almond flour. Stir in remaining ingredients
until well blended and a sticky dough forms. Drop dough by teaspoons in 24 tiny piles on
parchment-lined 12"x17" baking sheet. Very lightly and gently pick up each piece of dough
and roll into a ball; put back on baking sheet making sure to space them evenly 6 across
and 4 down.
Cover the balls with plastic wrap (you can use a small piece and move it around
as needed), and take a baking powder can that has about an 1/8" rim around the bottom, and
press down firmly over each ball of dough. Be sure to press all the way down to the baking
sheet. Peel off the plastic wrap and repeat until all the cookies have been shaped. Prick
them with a fork. You may have to gently hold the cookies down with one hand while pricking
so that the dough stays put.
Bake at 325°F for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan and cool on a rack.
Makes 24 cookies.
