These keto brookies are a delightful low carb treat with impressive macros for your keto diet! Only 4.3g net carbs per serving!
Brookies are simply the fusion of brownies and cookies, and the taste is nothing short of absolute delight.
That said, this yummy dessert takes a bit of work, but it is TOTALLY worth it.
What ingredients will I need to make keto brookies?
The ingredients list is simple. And you’ll likely have everything you need in your pantry already! Don’t you love when it works out that way?
- Almond Flour
- Brown Erythritol (Regular Granular is okay too)
- Powdered Erythritol
- Peanut Butter (you can substitute almond butter if peanuts aren’t your thing)
- Cocoa Powder
- Baking Soda
- Baking Powder
- Vanilla Extract
- Sugar Free Chocolate Chips (I prefer Lily’s)
Keto Brookies Notes
I wouldn’t try to substitute coconut flour in this recipe. I don’t think the taste would be great, but you’re welcome to try. Just know that you need much less (about 1/4 as much) coconut flour as you do almond flour.
Definitely use powdered Erythritol where the recipe calls for it. This significantly cuts the cooling effect of the Erythritol and makes for a better batter.
(If you don’t have powdered Erythritol, you can blend granular in a food processor!)
I know Peanut Butter is a bit controversial on a ketogenic diet, but if you use an unsweetened, natural peanut butter (maximum 2 ingredients: peanuts and salt) you’ll find that the carbs are very reasonable.

Scoop spoonfuls of cookie batter directly on the brownie layer. Feel free to swirl the batters together, or just press the cookie layer in gently.
Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees. A toothpick should come out of the center mostly clean.
Allow brookies to cool completely before digging in!
