Trim Healthy Mama {Brownies – FP or S}


Brownie on a plate on the table.

Here is my first attempt to fix a Trim Healthy Mama “dessert” for my whole family…Brownies!  I wanted something easy I could mix up and have enough to serve our family of 7.  These worked great! I even got my husband to try a piece and he thought they were pretty good (which says a LOT!).  I hope you enjoy the recipe!

Ingredients

    Brownie Ingredients
  • 2 Tablespoons oat fiber
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon Gluccomannan
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup Truvia + several shakes of NuNaturals
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2/3 cup egg whites
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • Frosting Ingredients
  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa (try a combo of regular and dark cocoa for an even richer frosting!)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Gluccomannan
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (unsweetened vanilla or plain)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Truvia + Several dashes of NuNaturals to taste

Instructions

  1. Make the Frosting recipe then put in a covered container in the refrigerator until ready to frost brownies. (This is a pudding-like frosting that needs some time to “thicken”!)
  2. Mix dry ingredients well in a small bowl, then add wet ingredients and mix until smooth.
  3. Pour into a greased 9×9-inch baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
  4. Top with the frosting and some chopped nuts if desired (see THM note below if using nuts!).
  5. THM Notes: To keep FP – Just the brownie and frosting alone would be a FP and you could have half the pan if you want and it would still be a FP (but I don’t recommend it!) To make it an S – If you add some chopped nuts on top, then you will need to limit how many pieces you have to keep this in FP range. If you go easy on the nuts, you will be ok. If you go heavy on the nuts, the added fat will put this in S territory.
  6. Frosting Instructions
  7. Whip all ingredients with a small whisk in a small bowl. Make sure it is mixed well. This makes a pudding-like rich frosting that is SO good! Cover and put in refrigerator until brownies are ready to frost (it will need to “thicken” a bit before frosting).

  1. Can I use monk fruit instead of Truvia and NuNaturals? We don’t like stevia. If so how much? Thank you!
    1. Hi Beth! Yes, you can use monk fruit, I just can't remember how it compares as far as amounts. Truvia is a concentrated sweetener but isn't monk fruit used cup for cup as sugar? If so, you will need to use more monk fruit than the recipe calls for.
  2. Can I substitute Xanthan gum for the glucomannan? Just wondering if the frosting would still set up properly...
  3. Thank you for these brownies!! Really enjoyed your recipe.These are also heavenly when frozen!!! :) I make a chocolate dip very similar to your icing for dipping strawberries. I just add chocolate protein powder and oat fiber with a bit more milk...very yummy and filing. Thanks for making FP goodies, I'm always experimenting in my kitchen and searching the internet for them. Do you have a FP cookie yet? Thanks for sharing all of your yummy recipes with us!! Blessings!
    1. So glad you liked them Keri! I love the FP cakes too because I can get the sweets without all the calories! I do not have a FP cookie yet though! That would be awesome!
  4. Is there not supposed to be sweetener in the frosting? I made it and it was very bitter, so I put 1 doonk in it and that really made it work for me. Did you miss putting sweetener in it??
    1. Hi Rebekah, I think you probably could. I am thinking that you might not use quite as much baking blend though. Just use a little less than the total amount of flours. It should turn out ok. Good luck!
    1. Hi Robin, Glucomannan is used as a thickener in recipes. You can also use Xanthan Gum too. Here is what I get at Amazon: https://amzn.to/1UQQbRQ. Sometimes you can just leave it out of a recipe and it still turns out ok. It isn't that expensive though, so I'd just order some and then start using it when you have it on hand. Wishing you the best!
  5. I made these yesterday and I'm sorry to say they weren't my favorite. I prefer the flavor of swerve sweetener over the other brands. Do you know how much swerve I would use in this recipe?
    1. Hi Karen, I know sometimes people don't like the Truvia sweetener taste. You could try the THM Gentle Sweet sweetener or if you want to use Swerve just double the amount -- so use 1/2 cup or a little more. That is if Swerve you can use cup for cup like sugar, right? Good luck!
      1. Thanks for the Gentle Sweet info. I don't have Swerve but I have Gentle Sweet and Super Sweet. I will have to try this recipe with one of those.
  6. Oh my....these were AMAZING! I'm absolutely in love with them. <3 I made them for my mom, and I and we both adored them! I gave the last one to my older sister who is pregnant (and do early next month!!!!), and who is also on THM. She was a little hesitant at first but once she took a bite she got excited and asked for the recipe. :) They taste exactly like a sugar-filled brownie! I substituted 1/4 cup of Sweet Blend for the Truvia, and ended up adding 1 teaspoon more. And that made it perfect. :) Thank you so much for the recipe! I'm lovin' the Fuel Polls...
    1. Oh Anna, you made my day! I'm so glad you guys liked the brownies. Isn't it fun to find treats we can have and not feel guilty? Have a blessed day!
      1. Aww!! Yes it is! I am so thankful for all the THM ladies out there who took the time to experiment with different recipes and post them so other people can enjoy them! Thank you so much for everything your doing. <3 Thank you, and God bless!
  7. Has anyone tried freezing these? I'd like to make a couple batches and freeze them, but I wasn't sure how they would once thawed? Thanks!
    1. Hi Amy, I hope someone else chimes in here. I haven't frozen them to know for sure, but I bet they would be ok. You could always give it a try -- maybe just freeze a couple single serving pieces and see how they do after being frozen. Good luck!
  8. Yeah, I used those amounts of liquid. I was wondering if perhaps a tbsp. of Greek yogurt or tsp oil or butter would help and still keep it in FP limits?
  9. OH! I just read through the comments and the thing about oat fiber may have answered my question! I thought ground oats would be the same thing...so...I used 2TBSP ground oats in the above recipe and while it turned out ok it was VERY dry. Does oat fiber help counter this problem?
    1. Hi Nikki! I'm not sure why yours turned out very dry. Oat fiber absorbs the liquids pretty good too, so I don't think using the oat fiber will help with them being dry. Did you use the right amount egg whites and water - 2/3 CUPS egg whites and then the 2 Tablespoons of water? If you find that the brownies are still dry, don't cook them as long, or add a bit more water or almond milk to the batter when mixing up. That should take care of it!
  10. Another great recipe, Sheri! I have had this pinned since last year and finally made it. Your recipes are the best!
    1. 6 teaspoons of Truvia equals 4 teaspoons of the THM Sweet Blend. The sweet blend is sweeter, so you don't have to use as much. I think I would try using 1/4 cup of sweet blend (and leave the extra shakes of stevia powder out) and see if that is sweet enough. Hope that helps!
    1. Hi Adria, I don't know how that would work. I may work fine. I'd give it a try and see. They both absorb the liquids, so it may work. Good luck!
  11. I can't believe I get to eat things like this!!! I made some FP pudding earlier, and it made a lot! And I rarely would eat it, so I am going to attempt your brownies (with a flax egg) and do my best not to eat a lot of them! lol Thank you so much!!!
  12. Oat fiber? I have to use gluten free oats.... can I make it from oats? haven't read the whole book (if it talks about oat fiber ;) ). Thanks!
    1. Hi Ruth Ann, Oat fiber is addressed in the THM book. Oat fiber is not the same as ground up oats or oat flour. Oat fiber has 0 carbs and 0 fat, making it a perfect ingredient to use in FP recipes. If you use oat flour or ground up oats, that will add carbs to the recipe and may put it in more of an E category. I hope that helps!
    1. Hi Amanda, You may be able to use almond flour, but I think coconut flour absorbs more moisture. So, you may need to use a bit more almond flour. Go ahead and give it a try and see how it goes!
  13. Hi there, Sheri, just wondering, could I sub xylitol for the truvia, and what amount. I just really cant get used to the taste.
    1. Hi Eva, Yes, you can sub Xylitol for the Truvia. I think if you may want to use a little more Xylitol because I don't think it is as sweet at the Truvia. Sometimes if I use Xylitol, I use the amount the recipe calls for of Truvia, then add a shake or two of the NuNaturals. Hope that helps!
        1. Hi Tami, NuNaturals is the brand of Stevia Powder that Pearl and Serene originally recommended before they got their own stevia to sell. Just use any stevia powder that you have (the highly concentrated white powder stuff!).
  14. Hi Sheri! First of all, thank you thank you thank you for introducing me to THM. I feel great! Now...about those brownies.... I made a batch the other day and found it extremely hard to share lol. Aren't the recipes just great? My favorites so far are the MIMs (muffin in a mug), especially the cinnamon one. My family is enjoying the meals as well, as long as they don't see me using a recipe from the book. That's fixed easy enough because I bought the PDF version and can just print it off when nobody is looking. My husband and I are on an FP week and he doesn't even know it! Anyhow, I just wanted to say thanks...your posts led me to something that has changed my life, and my family's at the same time. May God bless you for that. Lots of love, Steph
    1. Hi Stephanie, I am so excited for you! What a blessing that just my blogging about THM has encouraged you to give it a try. May the Lord continue to lead you in the days ahead!
