There are a few recipes out there for low carb brownies, including some recent ones that use cauliflower puree. I was more motivated to stick with a more classic ingredient set and pulled from a few inspirations (including just regular old brownies) for this – including a combine, mix, and bake recipe. I use a high quality cocoa powder. I favor the taste of black walnuts; just remember that they are a lot different from regular walnuts. You could just use regular walnuts and use vanilla extract. —Brian Coppola
