Diabetic Chocolate Brownies Recipe
It’s a myth that diabetics need to avoid sugar at all costs.
All carbohydrates turn to sugar in your blood stream, so rather than avoid sugar completely, you need to manage the intake as part of your daily diabetic diet. For example, if you really MUST have a dessert, take the salad option for your main course.
Anyway, for those days when you need to remember what chocolate brownies taste like, here is a tasty diabetic chocolate brownie recipe:. Diabetic Chocolate Brownies Recipe
Diabetic Chocolate Brownies Ingredients:
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup Dutch-process cocoa
2 tsp instant espresso powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 oz bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
2 tbsp canola oil
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsp dark corn syrup
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 egg whites
Diabetic Chocolate Brownies Method:
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Spray an 8- by 8-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, espresso powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside In a heavy, medium saucepan, combine the bittersweet chocolate and the oil; cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the chocolate is completely melted, about 2 minutes.
Remove from the heat. Stir in the applesauce, sugars, corn syrup, and vanilla; beat until smooth, about 1 minute.
Add the egg whites and continue beating until the sugar is dissolved, 1 minute more.
Add the reserved flour mixture and stir gently until smooth, about 2 minutes.

Cool completely on a rack before cutting.
