Only 13 grams of carbs, and so very good!! You need not feel guilty eating one of these brownies with it's delicious chocolate frosting.

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp. chocolate extract or chocolate flavoring
2 large eggs

For The Frosting:
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa
1 tbsp. skim or 2% milk
1/2 tsp. chocolate extract or flavor
1/8 tsp. butter flavoring
Walnuts halves, ( for garnishing tops of brownies) optional

Heat oven to 350° F (180 C). Grease bottom only of 8-inch square pan. Combine all brownie ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well. Spread in greased pan.

Bake at 350° F (180 C) for 13-18 minutes, or until top is dry and springs back when touched lightly in center. Cool for 15 minutes.

Very good brownies. Not too sweet but cocoa-ey and still moist as well as delicious. Just hard to remember to eat in moderation! :)

My husband and I really loved this brownie recipe. He loves sweets and he's a diabetic. I'm trying to lose some weight so I just tasted it. It was excellent. I loved it. Thank you for the recipe.

I loved this recipe and all my friends and family do too. I didn't have any chocolate essence, so I added orange essence instead, and it tasted wonderful. Just a little variation I thought would work.

How is this guilt-free? And 24 brownies in an 8 x 8-inch pan. These are just as bad for you as anything! Terrible recipe.
