“It’s raining men, Hallelujah, It’s raining men. Ah-ah-ah.” – The Weather Girls
Good morning. As you may have noticed, I woke up with a certain song in my head. I’ve been humming “It’s Raining Men” all morning. And now I am passing it on to you. (video below) It’s really something to see. Men in raincoats and speedos dancing. It’s literally raining men in the video.
But let’s talk about low carb peppermint brownies, shall we?
This flourless keto brownie is actually made from a mixture of cocoa powder, sugar-free sweetener and tahini. The secret, of course being the tahini. But if you serve these to a crowd, they will likely be unaware that they are sugar-free and have only 6g net carbs per brownie. If you don’t tell them, then no one will be the wiser.
Ok, I must be off. The weather forecast is predicting a drizzle of men later on.

1/4 teaspoon salt

- Cut around the edges of the brownies to release the brownies from the pan. Place a medium sized cutting board on the pan and then invert. If it doesn’t come out immediately then give the bottom of the pan a good tap to release the brownies from the pan.
