Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven at 175C.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the first 5 ingredients (flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt and xanthan gum).
  3. In a large bowl, beat the oil and xylitol with an electric mixer until well combined, then add the egg and vanilla and mix again.
  4. With the mixer on low speed, add the flour blend mixture to the egg mixture, then add the warm water, beating until smooth.
  5. Divide the batter in muffin cases (or pour it in a 8-inch square baking pan) and bake for 20 minutes.
Recipe Notes
  1. avoid over-baking the brownies as the won’t be fudgy (I usually set the timer to 15 minutes and then I┬ácheck them with a toothpick)
  2. a variation of this recipe can be obtained by adding 1/2 cup sugar-free chocolate chips and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts into the batter
  3. xylitol can have a laxative effect if consumed more than 65g/day (one brownie contains around 14 grams if 1/2 cup xylitol is used in the recipe)
