1/2 teaspoon sea-salt

1 cup butter, unsalted
1/4 teaspoon Ginger (this is a serotonin-booster ;) combined w/ cocoa = heavenly addition!!!)
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (this is OPTIONAL!!!! adds a nice ZING though.... )
1 cup Cocoa
1 cup Splenda + 5envelopes STEVIA herbal sweetener
2 smalls omega eggs and 1cup/250ml(1 carton) egg-whites --- THIS ADDS EXTRA PROTEIN ;)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract (Jamaican Vanilla tastes the best----sold @ West 1 cup chopped nuts, optional

yummy!! have you tried adding up some spirit into your brownies?? it really taste good too. just add one tsp of rum or brandy..


Hello my friends!! I'm sure everyone has had *quite the week* and is looking forward to going home this evening and unwinding....perhaps having a nice, relaxing bubble bath, followed by some......Brownies ?!?! :-D hmmm....let's mak'em HEALTHY BROWNIES!!! What i did was, i altered my grandma's brownie recipe, editted out the refined sugars and starches and made this into a wonderful, healthy alternative to the conventional brownie...yet it still tastes GREAT!
Once your brownies are ready, it's time to watch a Movie/DVD or take a bubble bath and enjoy your yummy and Healthy baked goods... and perhaps indulge in a nice, Healthy glass of Dry Red Wine!!
A tip when buying red wine---Make sure that the wine is ranked a ZERO (0) or maximum a ONE (1) ...ask the staff at the LCBO to find you a 0 or 1 wine....these wines are "low glycemic" therefore lower in carbs than say, a sweeter wine that would be ranked a higher number... i REALLY hope this helps!!!

NOTE*** These friendly brownies are high in essential fatty acids (omega 3-6-9), high in fiber, iron, antioxidants, flavonoids, protein, vitamin B6, and electrolytes (potassium/sodium) ... They WILL make you feel GREAT after you eat them. I promise :)
