Stevia Cocoa Brownies | SweetLeaf®


  • 2 1/2 Tbsp. SweetLeaf® Stevia Sweetener
  • Nonstick vegetable oil spray
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3/4 cup natural cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line an 8-by-8-by-2-inch glass baking dish with foil, pressing firmly into pan and leaving a 2-inch overhang. Coat foil with nonstick spray; set baking dish aside.

Melt butter in a small sauce-pan over medium heat. Let cool slightly. Whisk SweetLeaf®, cocoa, and salt in a medium bowl to combine. Pour butter in a steady stream into dry ingredients, whisking constantly to blend. Whisk in vanilla. Add eggs one at a time, beating vigorously to blend after each addition. Add flour and stir until just combined (do not overmix). Scrape batter into prepared pan; smooth top.

Bake until top begins to crack and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, about 25-30 minutes.

Transfer pan to a wire rack; let cool completely in pan. Using foil overhang, lift brownie out of pan; transfer to a cutting board. Cut into 16 squares.

    These did not raise. They stayed flat. Not brownies at all.

    Brownies did not rise and the Stevia after taste is strong. Almost medicinal in taste.
