* I, too, thought 1 stick of butter was too much - I used 1/2 stick of butter plus about 1/4 cup water. Problem was, I tried doing a "cheesecake" layer on top (cream cheese, egg, stevia, erythritol, and 2 Tbsp Carbalose flour), and the mild sweetness of the cheesecake really made this brownie taste BITTER! I love bittersweet chocolate, so I don't think that was the problem. Perhaps their inulin had too much of whatever makes chicory bitter. When the brownie is on its own, the bitterness probably helps make the chocolate flavor "deeper". Based on these reviews, I'm going to try one more bag, but add some LC sweetener and no topping.
* Okay. I liked the taste of these but I did not find it very moist. Of course, I did a variation to the recipe since I used coconut oil instead of the butter. I used coconut oil rather than butter because I am on the HCG. However, this did do the job for my chocolate fix and they really did taste yummy just not as moist as I would have liked them to be.
* I bought this because of all the good reviews, but honestly, the brownies have a strong coconut smell and taste (from coco butter) that just really changes the flavor. Am I really the only one who noticed that? Also, they require a full stick of butter for the package, so it is a bit high in calories. Finally, the taste and texture are just bland to me. Not at all what I was really expecting. I guess these would be alright if they were the only brownie choice, but I think I will be trying something else instead.
