Diabetic Brownies

(Brian Edwards/Gayle Woods)

(This would be good with whipped cream sweetened with Xylitol sugar top, and fresh strawberries).  Don't overbake.

4 egg whites (reserve 2 egg yolks)
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup white granulated sugar
2 reserved egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup all-purpose white flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped 

Place egg whites, cream of tartar, and salt in a mixing bowl.  Beat with an electric mixer.  Beat in sugar gradually.  Continue until stiff peaks form.  Beat in egg yolks and vanilla.  Combine flour, cocoa, and walnuts and fold lightly into egg mixture.  Spread batter in greased 9x9-inch pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched.
