THE BEST Chocolate Brownie EVER!

  • 2 cups splenda

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda

2. Stir together splenda, walnut flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla; beat on medium speed of mixer 2 minutes. Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin). Pour batter into prepared pans.

3. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 35 to 40 minutes. Cool completely. Frost.

Frosting:

Oh man...I am cruising along...loving your blog. See the reference to the Eat Clean Diet. Aweome. Then see Splenda in lots of your recipes. Is there a reason why you prefer Splenda over a natural sweetener? Even if you are trying to save calories....have you tried organic Zero or Stevia?

I actually just discovered the clean eating diet the day before yesterday. As a result any recipes posted before my post about the diet would be low carb and not relating to the Eat Clean Diet.

In the meantime, I am actually going to be getting Stevia when I get the chance.

So does that mean you are going clean from here on out?? Fabulous!

Yes, that is my plan. :-)


**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
