Combine a few simple ingredients and double the chocolate flavor to create the Atkins Double Chocolate Brownies! Share these naturally gluten free, low carb and low sugar brownies with your friends and family.
Double the chocolate means double the fun! A balanced lifestyle includes balancing clean eats with sweet treats so I’m sharing a tasty recipe for one of my favorite desserts. Double Chocolate Brownies are soft, fudgy and packed with chocolate flavor. You won’t be able to resist these brownies made with both unsweetened chopped chocolate and unsweetened cocoa powder.
I discovered the recipe for these Double Chocolate Brownies in the new lifestyle book, “Atkins: Eat Right, Not Less.” With more than 100 pages dedicated to living the Atkins low carb lifestyle, the book is a valuable resource for anyone aiming to enjoy a low sugar and low carb lifestyle. The book provides an extensive list of foods that are acceptable for a low-sugar, low-carb lifestyle. In addition, it includes tips for staying on track during the holidays or while eating out and explains the “hidden sugar effect” – foods that you think are healthy that actually turn into sugar when digested. You don’t see the sugars, but your body does.
The weekly meal plans offer a great way to kick start healthier living. Best of all, the recipes are made with fresh natural ingredients that the entire family will love. Try the Asparagus with Burrata Cheese and Kale Pesto or the sweet and savory Lemon Protein Pancakes. The recipe options include everything from breakfast, lunch and dinner to snacks and dessert.
