Mega-Brownie Bite (Sugar Free!)

Sometimes, you just want a brownie!

In spite of being sugar-free—and trying to use fresh fruit for the sweets in my diet—there are moments when a brownie is just right.  This one has lots of wholesome ingredients in it.  Next time, I am going to try adding flaxseed too.  Sweet and chocolately!

Mega-Brownie Bite

  • 7/8 cup whole wheat flour (freshly ground soft wheat is best)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup xylitol (or 1/2 cup white sugar + 1/4 cup brown sugar)
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened or melted (or coconut oil)
  • 1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon plain unsweetened yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup walnuts or pecans

Combine all ingredients together, kneading with your hands to mix.  It will seem quite dry.  Pat into one huge cookie on a baking pan.  Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes until set and firm on the edges.  Let cool.  Satisfies 4-6 sweet-tooth cookie monsters!

Yum!
