I made seven batches of THM brownies in one day to see which one was the best!
Recently on Instagram I went on a mission to find the best Trim Healthy Mama brownie! I personally love a brownie that is super fudgy as that is the kind we would make when I was growing up.
But I didn’t just rely on my taste buds to help me decide. My family tasted all the brownies as well and we voted on our favorite.
Then I tallied up the points to see which ones came out on top!
[When testing I stuck with the classical chocolate brownie version. There are tons of other recipes that start to include ingredients like peanut butter, peppermint etc. but that would quickly have gotten too overwhelming!]
Luckily brownies are quite easy to whip up.
All of these recipes are super delicious
I made three brownies from the THM cookbooks and the other four were from THM bloggers. All of these brownies were scrumptious. But there were three that especially came out on top!
Let’s get to the recipes! I’ll save the top three for last.

Northern Nester Double Chocolate Brownies, Dairy free
First up are Northern Nesters Double Chocolate Brownies. These have baking chocolate and cocoa and a bonus is that they are completely dairy free!
Cry No More Brownies
These are the Cry No More brownies from the Trim Healthy Mama cookbook. The surprise in these brownies is that they contain okra!
I was a little skeptical about how they would turn out as I’ve never made them before, even though I’ve heard a lot about them.
I was pleasantly surprised! These have a beautiful texture and yummy chocolate flavor and I love that I am eating veggies when I have one lol.
These were actually my thirteen year old sisters favorite brownie out of all seven!
Low Carb Brownies from My Montana Kitchen
These Low Carb Brownies from My Montana Kitchen are nice and fudgy and I love the addition of chocolate chips and pecans on top! They also have coffee in them for extra depth of flavor.
Mrs. Criddle’s Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies
Mrs. Criddle’s Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies were one of my favorites! They have a little bit more of a cake like texture and the walnuts add a nice flavor.
This recipe makes a 9×13 pan which is nice if you are feeding a family. I cut the recipe in half and used a 8×8 pan.
Are you ready for the top three THM brownies?
These next ones consistently came out in the lead!
Hannah’s Fabulous Brownies
This recipe for Hannah’s Fabulous Brownies is from Joy Filled Eats. They are super chocolatey and very delicious. They were my second favorite brownie!
Pay Off Day Brownies
This recipe is in the Trim Healthy Table cookbook. Of course with a delicious pecan praline topping like this, these brownies are going to be high on the list!
The brownies themselves are nice and moist but it is definitely the topping that makes them so amazing.
And now for the ultimate THM brownie!
These are the Transformer Fudge Brownies, also from Trim Healthy Table. Just like the name suggests, they are extremely fudgy and have a light chocolate ganache layer on top.
My Dad’s review said that they were hard to stop eating! They taste just like our old fudge brownie recipe that contained sugar.
A few brownie baking tips:
Something to keep in mind is that sugar free desserts often taste better if they sit overnight. This allows the flavors to develop better.
If you are still getting used to low carb sweeteners this can also help reduce the taste of them.
Also, chocolate can be a little more difficult to sweeten. You might want to taste your batter to make sure it is plenty sweet enough. If you are thinking it is just barely sweet, it definitely will taste even less so after baking.
The great thing about baking brownies though is that they are easy to whip up and don’t take a lot of special ingredients!
Let me know if you have made any of these recipes!

Too bad that there are no recipes. I was looking forward to making a few of them.
Hi Terri! 4 of the 7 brownies featured here have links you just need to click to take you straight to the recipe so I’m not sure what you mean by that. The other 3 have links to the cookbooks they are in, so no recipe there, but the majority of my audience has those cookbooks already and wanted the recipes tested before they went to try them.
Ooh, this is such a great post! My Fil has recently been diagnosed with diabetes so it’s great to find some tested recipes!
Oh yes, these recipes are so gentle on blood sugar! I’ve found that they keep tasting better as they sit! I store mine in the freezer.
