Cookie Recipe of the Week: Stevia Brownies - No Sugar … and In Oven in 10 Minutes

Stevia Brownies substitute stevia for sugar and sugar-free chocolate chips for the sugar-packed regular variety.

It’s a great way to get your chocolate fix …eliminate sugar … and do it simply and quickly.

There are several reasons these low cal brownies (or at least, lower calorie brownies!) are so easy to make. First, they can be mixed together in one bowl. And because the brownies are made from a thin batter (rather than a thick cookie dough), you can choose to mix it by hand with just a large spoon, rather than an electric mixer. The recipe comes together so quickly that in less than ten minutes, it’s in the oven.

But what makes this recipe so popular is that it eliminates sugar and calls for stevia, a natural sweetener, formulated to replace sugar cup for cup. And at practically zero calories in stevia – and with sugar-free chocolate chips – this recipe keeps the Sugar Nazis at bay and means brownies for diabetics low cal brownies for those who are watching their weight or carbs are possible.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 25-28 minutes
Makes 16-25 brownies

Get Organized in the New Year

I’m all about finding simple ways to spend time on what matters and eliminate the stuff I don’t need to do. Since you’re a Cookie Elf reader, I bet you feel the same.

Spring is here. And if spring cleaning isn’t on your To-Do list (or if you don’t know where to begin) … or if you feel like you’re disorganized … if you feel overwhelmed with junk …

Here’s some news that is a relief. Jane organized her home and her stuff in 7 days. She had to when she moved from Canada to Australia! When she figured out to streamline everything, it made a huge difference for her. It can for you too. Check out how you can drop your clutter and feel the relief in time for summer. More info.
