Low Carb Almond Brownies

Ingredients:

7 cubes of unsweetened bakers chocolate
1 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup Xylitol
1/2 cup Splenda
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup unsweetened dutch process cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup ground almonds

*I made my own almond flour since I didn’t have any.  I used raw whole almonds and i just simple ground them in my food processor.  For a finer grind you can use a coffee grinder. *

Preparations:
Preheat oven to 350F.
Line 8′ x 8′ baking dish with parchment paper.
Place butter and chocolate in a heat proof bowl to make double boiler by placing it over simmering pot of water and let melt.
Remove from heat when about 3/4 of the way melted.
Whisk until completely smooth. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, add eggs, xylitol, Splenda and vanilla extract.
Using a paddle attachment, beat on high until the mixture is pale and doubled in volume.
Add the cocoa powder into the melted chocolate mixture, whisk until smooth.
Quickly whisk in 1/3 of egg mixture until combined.
Using a rubber spatula, carefully fold in the remaining egg mixture, almond flour, and salt.
Mix just until combined. Pour batter into prepared pan.

Bake 25-30 minutes on 350F.

Let cool in pan before removing and cutting.

Cut into 25 equal pieces.
