Recipe: Sugar-free Cake-style Brownies

The team at ChocZero chocolates insists that their sugar-free chocolate — which is sweetened with monk fruit extract, a natural ingredient that doesn’t affect your blood sugar and doesn’t contain artificial sweeteners — not only tasted great, but could replace regular chocolate for those who cannot have sugar or who are on a keto diet.

I wouldn’t normally seek out sugar-free chocolates, but I thought I’d give them a try!

I tasted both their dark and milk chocolates, and I’ll admit, I am a bigger fan of the dark — both have a bit of that sugar-free sweetener aftertaste, but it’s less noticeable in the dark variety. However, if I had to go sugar-free, I’d definitely choose them over artificially sweetened chocolate.

After my initial tasting, I put these chocolates to the test to see if I could use them in baking. I added them to a simple recipe for cake-like brownies that I would normally make with Baker’s chocolate squares melted with butter, and a heap of sugar. I’m happy to say that they came out pretty well! I think this would be a great alternative for people looking for a sugar-free dessert. Plus, it’s super easy with only for ingredients.

INGREDIENTS:

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Grease the inside of an 8” x 8” baking pan.
  3. Melt the chocolate squares in a double boiler over the stove, or by using a pan on very low heat and stirring constantly. Once the chocolate is fully melted set aside to cool a bit.
  4. Beat the two eggs in a mixing bowl until they begin to look bubbly.
  5. Add the melted chocolate (after it has cooled a little so that you don’t accidentally cook the eggs with hot melted chocolate) and mix well with a spoon.
  6. Add the flour and baking soda and mix until batter is well blended.
  7. Pour into baking pan, spread evenly, and place in preheated oven until for about 20 minutes, or until a knife poked in the center comes out clean. NOTE: Oven times may vary, don’t overcook!
  8. Enjoy!
