Pearl......I used Hershey's 100% Cacao Special Dark cocoa powder. It did turn out very dark, but it wasn't burned at all. Funny story.........I excitedly told my husband about my yummy breakfast yesterday and showed him the pic on the camera. He looked kind of confused and said that it looked like a big hunk of charcoal. I was like, "What?!?!?". Then I looked at the picture again and realized that what he said was true, it did look like a charcoal briquette. Hahaha!!! Before that, I had just seen the yummy, dark, chocolately, velvetiness of it. ))
Ha ha Andrea. I only thought that because I use the extra dark for my muffins too and that is what they look like. I guess it could look like a charcoal lump but not to me. Great idea on the SBJ, saving some cals instead of butter.

My 20 month old and I just split one of these, yum! The first I made for husband as his before-work snack. He looked at me and said "this is my snack? A brownie?" when I told him yes, and what was in it, he liked it! Though he said it was a bit bland, so the next one I made with a pinch of salt and the teeniest drizzle of vanilla. Much improved!
I've made these twice but can't get them cook all the way through! I used a 4 ounce Pyrex bowl for my "mug" and cooked in a toaster oven at 350. Even up to 12 minutes left most of the inside completely batter-like. Still yummy!!! But I would like to be able to eat it with my hands I don't really have anything ceramic I could use, but do you think that would make a difference? Should I go out and buy ramekins? Or maybe bake at a higher temperature? Other thoughts?

grammalynda: if there isn't a reply button on a thread (too old maybe?) should I start a new thread for that subject?

steffanie3: Hmm, on the upper right as long as you are logged in there should be a reply button, but you sure can start a new thread if you want

grammalynda: I figured it out-when you do a search it takes you to the conversation-there is not a reply button-but the name of the thread is listed above the date and if you click that it takes you to the thread and the reply button. thanks stefanie3 and rebekahrl

glammom: Any suggestions as to where to purchase MCT oil? All new stuff to me. Purchase many items for plan on-line, some at Kroger, some at Trader Joes and Whole Foods. Any suggestions of locations to purchase MCT oil at brick and mortar stores?
Dec 11, 2014 15:03:23 GMT -5
steffanie3: GNC would likely have MCT or a health food store that carries Now Brand, that is one easy to find kind.

ttate53787: I have been put on a low residue diet. I am only allowed to eat refined grains. In order to follow this plan now would I just have to give up all breads? Any guidance on this type of diet? Thanks.

steffanie3: I haven't heard of a low residue diet, maybe make a post of a suggested menu you have been given and we could help?
