Double Chocolate Brownies – (per serving) 5g net carbs; 7.5g total carbs; 2.5g fiber; 3.5g protein; 16g fat; 186 calories. Makes 16 (1-brownie) servings; Prep time: 30 minutes; Cook time: 35 minutes

Be sure to thoroughly clean the mixing bowl and whisk attachment before whipping your egg whites-even a trace of fat from the egg yolks can prevent the eggs from forming peaks.


* 7 Atkins Endulge(TM) Chocolate Candy Bars, broken into pieces
* 1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
* 1 cup heavy cream
* 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
* 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
* 1/3 cup whole-wheat flour
* 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
* 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
* 5 large eggs, separated
* 6 tablespoons granular sugar substitute


* Heat oven to 3500F. Generously butter an 8-inch square baking pan.

* Combine chocolate bars and unsweetened chocolate in a large bowl.

* Heat heavy cream and butter in a small saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil, remove from heat, and stir in extract. Pour cream mixture over chocolate and stir until smooth, 1 to 2 minutes.

* Combine flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder in a bowl; set aside.

* Combine egg yolks and sugar substitute in a mixing bowl. Beat with the whisk attachment of an electric mixer on high speed until thick and light yellow, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir yolk mixture into melted chocolate mixture. Stir in dry ingredients until well combined.

* With a clean bowl and whisk attachment, beat the egg whites on high speed until stiff peaks form, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir one-third of egg whites into chocolate mixture to lighten it. Gently fold in remaining egg whites in two additions until combined. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake until a cake tester inserted into center comes out with a slightly wet crumb, 25 to 28 minutes.
