Keto Brownies Ingredients:
- 8 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 2 ounces chocolate bar 88% or higher (nutrition facts based off of 88% chocolate)
- 1/4 cup dutch process cocoa
- 2 large egg
- 3/4 cup powdered or granulated sweetener
- 1/4 cup blanched almond flour
- 2 tablespoon coconut flour
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 serving Lilys Semi-Sweet Chocolate baking chips (about 26 chocolate chips)
Keto Brownies Recipe Instructions:
- Preheat oven to 325°F
- Melt butter, 2 oz of chocolate bar and 1/4 cup of dutch process cocoa together via microwave or double boil method.
- Now after you have combine all those add in 3/4 cup granulated or powdered sweetener.
- Next add in almond flour and coconut flour. Mix those until smooth. Lastly add in both eggs and vanilla extract, mix until smooth. Add in chocolate chips.
- Then, pour batter into a square baking pan. Pan with determine how thick or thin your brownies will be. The thinner they stretch out you will need to lower the cooking time. I used a 7.6 x 7.6 inch square pan in the photos. But, a 9x9 will make very thin brownies.
- Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes checking at 25 minutes.
Is Dark Chocolate KetoThe percentage is what you need to look for. In this recipe, I use anything from 88% up. I find that chocolate with a little sugar helps in the recipe hinting to how I end up with a crispy layer on top. Using 100% is best to avoid any sugar but bitter chocolate takes some getting use to.
Helpful Recipe Tips
- Fudgy brownie, avoid letting the brownies fully cook. Bake them a little under for the fudge effect when they are done cooling.
- Dutch process or cocoa powder, both can be used but in my recipes I use dutch process cocoa. It's also the one I recommend you use as well for a rich brownie flavor.
- Avoid keto milk chocolate, tossing in a few chocolate chips is cool and great on flavor but a rich dark chocolate is best for baking. Using milk chocolate that's keto friendly can have a very light chocolate taste. Now, for those that hate rich chocolate this would be the ideal method for you.
