You must smell my house right now.
My son just came out of his room and asked me in his best sing-song voice, "What do I smell?"
He just went out to the kitchen to find it, what? The pan of brownies. Brownies, Beth!?
No, not that kind. I don't make that kind anymore. This is a special mix I bought from Netrition.com in that super-fast order that came in like half a day (which apparently I will be ordering more of THIS mix!) made by Flax Z Snax.
I was prepared to not like it - because I read some poor reviews of the product. I think what we have here is a poorly NAMED product. This stuff is not brownies - it's CAKE. Brownies are typically, chewy, dense sugar-bombs of chocolate. This is a healthy alternative- with very different texture - much more like a deep chocolate cake. With a creative use of sugar-alternative icing, we have our next birthday cake with this mix. I will use two bags or mix and make two "layers" of the brownies for a two layers of a cake.
Made with flax meal and real cocoa, this rich and fudgy brownie mix will satisfy your chocolate craving and provide 5 grams of fiber per serving. Wonderful for health-conscious eaters looking for a high-fiber, low-glycemic chocolate fix! And it contains only 5 net carbs per brownie."
(So, this hyper-hypoglycemic can eat a serving of these without dropping. Score.)
