Low Carb Mocha Blackout Brownie

Some days you just need a big dose of chocolate. Our son is not a big chocolate lover and frankly, I sometimes wonder what’s wrong with the boy. All kidding aside, it’s hard for this girl to understand those who don’t love chocolate. I know that when I start to crave chocolate it’s an indicator that my magnesium levels have dropped. Maybe, these fortunate souls just have high magnesium levels.

All I know is that sometimes the only thing that will knockout a chocolate craving, is to go into my kitchen and begin experimenting. After all, my chocolate threshold may be low but this is no reason to succumb to a regular sugar laden treat.

I am also aware that when I am under an unusual amount of stress it can deplete my magnesium. Do you know that even good events can put us under stress? This is why it’s vital that we learn to listen to what our bodies are trying to tell us. It may also be a sign that I have somehow been kicked out of ketosis so tweaking is vital.

How do I balance all that’s on my plate? First and foremost, by spending time with God in prayer and his word. Sure it’s fun to run to my kitchen to find an excuse to indulge in a chocolate treat, but nothing compares to the peace that comes from spending time in his presence.

I often get asked if eating a low carb diet feels depriving? I am not denying that there will be times a craving for something specific will come, but it’s been my experience that with a little perseverance a healthier alternative can be had.

I was hoping to create the richest, darkest brownie possible so that one serving would quench my need for something chocolaty. Thankfully, the use of Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa Powder made that possible.

  1. OK, there are NO WORDS to describe the ecstasy that these brownies bring. All I can say is guard them with your life because they won't last long! I made these tonight and my family was chomping at the bit to try them. The house was filled with the delicious chocolate brownie aroma, and I know the poor souls were not responsible for their actions because these blessed brownies were unbelievably good! I didn't have chocolate chips, but I did use the Hershey's dark chocolate (and made a powder mess when I turned on the mixer and it was on high, haha,), and I used that Z sugar for the first time because the Whole Foods I went to didn't carry Swerve. I actually liked it a lot. I think it leaves less of that sweet/cold sensation that Swerve leaves (not that I mind it). It also looks more like sugar and has stevia in it. Anyway, I am going to dream about these beautiful dark brown babies tonight! Thank you, Hilda! YBF (Your Biggest Fan)
    • Lol, we have all been guilty of powder mess😝 Thrilled you are enjoying the recipes, you encourage me to keep creating. Tell us about z sugar, not sure what you are referring to. 😜
  2. Omg! To die for!!! I can't wait to try this.
  3. No nutritional values? How many servings? Net carbs per serving?
    • Hi Jani, I have only recently started to add this to my recipes. Due time time constraints I don't always add. If you decide to calculate I will be more than happy to add. Have a blessed day. 💞
  4. Girl, I've got to try these wonderful recipes. You need to publish a cookbook. Deborah
  5. This brownie sounds devine, I'm out of unsweetened coco powder but as soon as I restock I will give it a swirl
  6. Yummy! I can't wait to try this recipe. :)
