Ever since high school, I’ve kept a very disciplined diet. It’s completely habitual by now, to the point where it doesn’t even occur to me to view food as anything other than “fuel” most of the time.
The holidays can always be a difficult time for me, not because I feel “temptation” but just because everyone around me is so annoying: pressuring me to “try this” or “try that” and partake in the fun and decadence of Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.
Finally, one day in 2009, I said: “Screw it! I’m going to come up with a way that I can keep my clean diet and still look like I’m not alienating people during holiday parties!”
The result? My recipe for sugar free, carb free, low fat, high protein brownies!
If you are the sort of person who thinks you might enjoy sugar free, carb free, low fat, high protein (gluten-free, also) brownies–whether for health, or to keep your gorgeous abs, or just to freak out your friends–then go ahead and make these for your next big holiday party! (Make sure to send me pictures of the results.)
DISCLAIMER: It has been so long since I have had real brownies, that I have no idea what they taste like. These brownies taste fine to me. My friends tell me they taste like “sadness”.
