Brownie Bliss


ENG-After coming back from holidays in Italy, my family and I decided to go on a low carb diet. I happened to have a craving for making something sweet after the first week of the diet, so I googled low carb diets and this one popped up. I’ve always wanted to bake with marshmallows as well! This is such an easy recipe to make and there’s only 190 calories per brownie, compared to most which contain around 250-400.

IT-Dopo sono tornata a casa dai miei vacanze in Italia, la mia famiglia e io abbiamo deciso da mangiare meno carboidrati. Ma avevo un desiderio ardente per cuocere qualcosa dolce dopo la prima settimana da fare la dieta.
Allora volevo trovare una ricetta con meno carboidrati e ho trovato questa. Anche di piu, ho sempre voluto cucinare  un dolce con marshmallow! Questa ricetta e davvero facile da fare e ogni brownie contene solamente 190 calorie, a paragone dalla maggioranza che ne contengono circa 250-400.
