Low Carb Brownies

Who said you can't have delicious brownies while low carbing!!  I made these for mom night in and all my friends LOVED them.  Try them, I promise you will make them again:)  even my kids LOVED them!!

Chocolate brownies
1 stick unsalted butter
2 cup xylitol, powdered(process it in your food processor until powdered)
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
4 lg eggs, room temp
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp sea salt
4 oz unsweetened bakers chocolate, melted
2 cup golden flax meal
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
2/3 cup water
1 cup walnuts, chopped(optional)

Preheat oven to 350 F and grease a 9x13 pan with butter.
Cream the butter until fluffy.  Add the xylitol and cream until fluffy.  Add vanilla and beat in eggs, one at a time.  Add salt and cocoa, beat well.  Add melted chocolate, beat until fluffy.  Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until combined.  Pur into prepared pan and bake for 35 minutes or until top springs back.  Cool, then cut into 28 squares.  If you  cheat and eat one warm, kow the texture will be different once cooled completely.  That's when they become like real brownies!!
