Dairy-Free, Low-Carb, Keto Brownies
These Low-Carb Brownies are the perfect sweet treat to satisfy your chocolate cravings. They are perfect for both paleo and keto dieters. As an added bonus, this is the easiest low-carb recipe I have ever made. It is so simple. Just stir, pour, and bake. That is my kind of low-carb treat. The whole family can have a wonderful chocolate treat without the mom-guilt.
This recipe is so simple. There is no chopping, grating, mixing, blending, or any of those tasks normally associated with healthy food. These are every bit as easy and delicious as box brownies and much better for you.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Erithrytol (Swerve)
- Vanilla Extract
- Almond Flour
- Cocoa Powder
- Baking Powder
- Xanthan Gum
- Chocolate Chips
I use Lilly’s Stevia Sweetened Dark Chocolate Chips. They are usually available at any health food store, but if you can’t find them in your area, you can always order from Amazon. If you can’t find them, or if the price makes you wince, they can be left out, but they really do make the brownies much richer.
Note: You don’t have to get this brand, but make sure you are getting sugar-free. Also, try to check the carb count on whichever chocolate chips you use.
The nutrition label on this post is calculated for these specific chocolate chips. Keep in mind that it may change if you substitute.
Step 1: Butter the Pan
I use actual butter for the bottom of my pan. It gives a nice flavor, and avoid processed oils used in many cooking sprays.
The Pan: The 8x8 Pyrex works perfectly for this recipe. However, you could use any pan of similar size. The cook time will vary depending on the material you use. Glass takes longer to heat up than metal but stays consistently hot longer than metal pans.
Step 2: Stir and Pour
First, melt the butter.
Then, stir all the ingredients together, and pour into the pan.
Finally, bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes.
Keto Low Carb Brownies

- 1 cup Swerve (Erythritol)
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

- Butter bottom of the pan.
- Stir all ingredients together.
- Pour into pan.

Note: This nutrition label is calculated for 12 servings. Actually, I like to make much smaller brownies and have them as tiny treats, but I made this label for standard sized brownies.
Some delicious nuts, extra chocolate chips, or keto whipped cream topping would be a perfect addition to these keto paleo brownies.
