Low Carb Brownie Recipes

As requested, here are some Low carb sugar free brownie recipes.

Please keep in mind that for some people, using the splenda as the only sweetener ina recipe using chocolate sometimes results in bitterness to the tastebuds of some individuals. However, for some people, the splenda tastes just fine used as the only sweetener with chocolate. It is always best to use at least two sweeteners with chocolate recipes. Three is ideal.

Some sweeteners that you can buy in regular stores:

Malitol-some stores in health food section
Sweet and Low
xylitol-Some stores in health food section
Splenda
Equal
Diabetisweet (both brown and reg)-available at super walmart int he pharmacy area near the diabetic supplies
Stevia or Stevia Plus (Both liquid and powder-Available in many grocers in the health food section. The Liquid has no carbs!

If you chose to use more than one sweetener, be sure to read the containers to see how they measure in regards to sugar and use an equivalent number of all your sweeteners of choice.

Here are the recipes. I will post more later.
