Be Sociable, Share!

    Time for a new, quickie waistline-friendly dessert recipe!  I whipped up these bad boys last night at Jade’s parents’ house, when we were all jonesing for a sweet treat.  After a thorough perusing of the cupboard, we found enough ingredients to throw together a yummy chocolate treat.  Here is my sweet mother-in-law, Joyce enjoying one of our chocolate coconut brownie creations, she loves cocoa! :)  The recipe is below!

    Low-Carb Chocolate Coconut Brownies

    Preheat oven 350 degrees F
    Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl, and use a spoon to combine until smooth:

    1 cup almond flour (or coconut flour)
    1 cup shredded coconut
    1/2 cup xylitol sweetener
    2 scoops chocolate whey protein (use 3 scoops for more cake-like brownies,2 for more chewiness)
    1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 stick butter, melted
    1 whole egg
    1/2 cup half & half

    Mix everything together until smooth, spread in an 8 x 8 greased pan
    Bake for 35-40 minutes, cool and cut (the cooler they are, the more they will hold together–otherwise, you will need a fork to eat!)
    Makes 16 servings
