Melissa's Fabulous Brownie Recipe
1 Cup Atkins bake mix (at least its good for something!)
1 egg
1 Cup veggie oil
1 Cup water
1/2 Cup cocoa
1 tsp. Vanilla
Sweetener of your choice (I used 12 packets equal)
Beat all together and put in baking dish sprayed with Pam or greased bake at 350 for about 10 min - top will be cracked and be slightly gooey inside, makes a big pan!
OR, to h*ll with the oven... beat it up and grab a spoon...*grin feel free to tweak. I was thinking maybe protein powder instead of Atkins? To save on carbohydrates?
Adaptations by Martha:
First off, using half protein powder and half Atkins bake mix really did reduce the nasty taste of the bake mix. However, I think it made the finished product drier, next time I'm going to use 1 1/4 cups of water rather than 1 cup -- the batter was very stiff, nearly the consistency of frosting!!
Secondly, I'm going to use another egg, to add moistness and give a more custardy texture to the batter (and hopefully to the finished product).
Thirdly, I might try using chocolate extract rather than vanilla. The brownies weren't quite chocolatey enough for me, but I didn't want the extra carbs of dumping in another 1/4 cup of cocoa.
