These brownies are so easy I believe ANYONE can make them! Not a very good baker? Just follow the simple instructions and you’ll be in a chocolate wonderland in no time!

The most important notes for this recipe are :

Use powdered (or confectioner’s) erythritol instead of granular. This will seriously cut the cooling effect that erythritol has and make your brownie batter nice and smooth, like it should be. Erythritol is my favorite sugar substitute, and the only one I bake with.  Unfortunately, I’m not sure how this recipe would work with alternatives like stevia, but if you give it a try let me know how it turns out!

Do not over-bake your brownies. You don’t want them to dry out or burn, and letting them finish up and firm outside of the oven is a great way to avoid that.

I think everything is better with chocolate chips, so I made sure to add 1/4 cup Lily’s Dark Chocolate Chips. If you haven’t tried these, they’re an incredible tasting dark chocolate chip with only 2 net carbs per 14g (60 chips)!

Speaking of nutrition information, here’s what you’re looking at for one serving of these brownies (1 brownie out of the 12 that the recipe makes):

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup powdered erythritol
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup blanched finely ground almond flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup low carb chocolate chips (Such as Lily's)

For the frosting

  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup powdered erythritol
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line an 8x8 baking dish with parchment, set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream the butter and erythritol. Mix in the eggs and vanilla. Add the almond flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
  3. Fold in chocolate chips and scrape batter into prepared 8x8 baking dish.
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes. A toothpick should come out mostly clean. It may appear a little jiggly but almond flour sets as it cools.
  5. Combine cream cheese, butter, powdered erythritol, vanilla extract and unsweetened cocoa powder in a large mixing bowl. Using a hand mixer, mix until fluffy.
  6. Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes, and frost if desired. Cut into 12 pieces.

These were fantastic! Followed the recipe exact but unfortunately they didn’t hold together well. Kind of crumbly. (Still ate them all!! Any suggestion on how to make them bind together better? Also, would a double amount in an 8” dish cook well? These were a little thinner then brownies shown. Thanks

Made these tonight and they were a hit. We typically dont have luck with keto chocolate desserts. We did not frost them instead we melted some lilys and drizzled over the top. Thank you for the recipe

I used powdered Swerve and it was way too sweet! I double checked to see if I had added too much. Nope. Next time I'll use half as much. Otherwise, good texture.

These were pretty good. I had to add extra sweetener (allulose and monk fruit), extra cocoa, some melted milk chocolate Lilly's chocolate chips, and some cream to the frosting because it tasted too much like butter and was too thick. Came out delicious! The brownies were moist and chewy. I also used the milk chocolate chips in those. I'll definitely be making these again. Maybe I'll try it with a caramel sauce on top next time. ? ?
