Low Carb Chocolate Chip Walnut Brownies with Soy Flour

Low Carb Chocolate Chip Walnut Brownies with Soy Flour // wishfulchef.comHere’s a delicious chocolate chip brownie recipe if you’re looking for a healthier chocolate dessert alternative. I used soy flour, which is made of finely ground soybeans. You can find it at your local grocery or health food store. I like to sift the soy flour before I mix the batter because it tends to get somewhat clumpy in texture.

Some people may not be accustomed to the taste of soy flour, however, I think the cocoa and chocolate chips help reduce the ‘beany’ flavor. If you haven’t used soy flour in your cooking before, I suggest starting with half soy and half regular flour and gradually add more to taste. This is a small batch, so just double the recipe if you need a larger serving.

      ok I changed up your recipe a bit according to what I had but THANK YOU for posting, because they were AMAZING. I used coconut flour and so reduced the sugar by half and used pureed avocado instead of coconut oil.

        You’re so welcome, Alanna! Wow, I must try using avocado next time. Sounds like a great alternative.

      Could I use powdered Stevia instead of the vanilla sugar? Than add some vanilla extract? It is supposed to be equal exchange to any sugar in recipe. I have used it before in muffins, cookies and worked out well. Also I wanted to use my mini muffin pan for bite sizes – would that work out OK too? Thanks!

        Yeah, I’m sure the stevia and vanilla extract would work out. Using a mini muffin pan sounds fine too. Let me know how it turns out!
