These keto brownies are every bit as easy and delicious as box brownies and much better for you since they have no added preservatives or “extra” hidden ingredients lurking in processed foods.
Ingredients for Keto Brownies
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, or substituted for a little extra cocoa powder. 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.
Some sugar-free items are still high in carbs. So, be sure to double check.
Step 1: Butter the Pan
I use real butter for the bottom of my pan. It gives a nice flavor, and I avoid processed oils used in many cooking sprays.
What Constitutes as Butter?
If you are using Country Crock, you are not using butter. Anything with “margarine,” “butter spread,” “butter flavored,” or “less fat” on the label is not butter and is likely made with vegetable oil.
Vegetable oils are man-made oils that contribute to carb-cravings, inflammation, and overall poor health. You can read about the effects of
The Pan: The 8×8 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 in the microwave.
Then, stir all the ingredients together, and pour into the pan.
Step 3: Bake
Finally, bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out of the center clean.
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Butter bottom of the pan.
- Stir all ingredients together.
- Pour into pan.
- Bake for 25-35 minutes or until center is firm.
