Loved this! I used 1 egg white and 1 yolk as a slight modification. Also used Xylitol as the sugar substitute and added in almond slivers for an extra crunch. Turned out amazing! Read More

I didn't like consistency. I should have used a different sugar substitute. The stevia had a gross after taste that overshadowed the entire dessert. Read More

I omitted the vanilla, and only used 1/2 cup of sweetener (Truvia). Soft consistency and great chocolate flavor! Definitely gonna make this again. Read More

I just couldn’t make myself like these. They’re so dry and bitter. They looked and smelled great but so do candles and I don’t eat those. Read More

I ran out of almond flower so I used coconut flour for the last 1/2 cup. (I misread the ingredients, oops) I did add an extra 1/2 cup of stevia because I thought the batter wasn’t sweet enough. I also added an extra 1/4 teas of salt to brighten up the taste. Baked it in a round pan for 30 min and they came out great! Nice and moist! Even got kid approval! Read More

These are nasty. Just tried to eat one and I can't get the horrible taste out of my mouth. Very dense and bitter. Can hardly wait to dump them in the trash. Read More

It'll do. I used Swerve as the sugar substitute. The consistency was very much brownie-like but as another reviewer said, they'll never be mistaken as the carbed up version of the brownies. Read More

These were OK. I did use powdered stevia instead of granulated and a lot less of it that recipe calls for. I also added some heavy whipping cream for richness. Read More
