This sugar free World's Best Keto brownie recipe makes the best Keto Brownies I have found anywhere...
Absolutely a Keto chocolate Lover's and a Diabetics dream come true....
In fact, they are the best brownies that I have had, Keto or not. I know this sounds like a tall order but they are fudgy and you don't get the "cool" sensation like most of the desserts made with erythritol.
I don't pretend to know why and it's not that I mind the "cool sensation" of erythritol, it's just that these don't have it and I bet I could serve them to my "non-Keto" friends and they would never even know.
Here's the deal...I know that you have probably visited a lot of Keto sites that say "this or that" taste just like the real thing...and they don't.
I am not saying that they are terrible liars, but maybe they have convinced themselves that it really does taste like the real thing.
I try to avoid that here...take my awesome Almond Flour Yeast Bread or the Gluten Free Coconut Bread. Yeah, I think they are good. Yeah, I think they are as close to "real bread" as I have gotten. But I don't say "Just like Dave's Killer Bread" or whatever...
But these my fiends, I mean friends are so close that I don't think you could tell the difference...They really are the World's Best Keto Brownies.
If you have been on the Keto diet for a while you already know that "treats" should be used sparingly but you'll need a reminder with these because they are that damn good.

- Don't try to skip the parchment paper on this one. You'll regret it.
- Don't over bake these.Almond flour goes from "over done" to "burnt" fast.
- If you are going to add nuts, chop them finely so they don't take away from the somewhat dense nature of these treats.
- Adding vanilla extract makes these soooo good. But vanilla has been pricey lately so use it if you want but we leave it out and they are still fantastic.
- Don't try to use the toothpick trick on these to determine when they are "done". They will still look somewhat wet. Jiggle the pan and if the center is too jiggly, than leave them in for a few minutes more.
- Use a fork to get the clumps out of the dry ingredients and mix well. We store out almond flour in the freezer to keep it fresh so it gets a little clumpy sometimes (all the time).
- Don't substitute coconut flour in this one. It won't work without changing the whole recipe...
- Melt the coconut oil before you stir it it in or you will have a mess going on. If you do this anyway, put your oven safe mixing bowl in the preheating oven for a couple of minutes to straighten it out.
Keto Dark Chocolate Brownies
- ¼ cup coconut oil melted
- 3 eggs
- Preheat oven to 350º F
- Put parchment paper in the bottom and sides of a 8 X 8 baking pan.
- In an oven safe bowl combine all the dry ingredients. Make they are thoroughly mixed with no clumps.
- Add all of the dry ingredients and stir with a fork. Make sure to get all the clumps out of the almond flour ( we store ours in the freezer to keep it fresh but it clumps up).
- Pour in the melted coconut oil and mix.
- Add the eggs and mix in thoroughly. You may want to use an electric mixer for this to get them really whipped up.
- Spread the mixture out in the parchment lined pan.
- Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. You can tell they are done by shaking the pan, if the middle doesn’t jiggle they are done. The toothpick trick doesn't work with these...if the pick comes out clean they are overdone and will be dry. If you like them soft, 15 minutes should do it, if you like them a little drier than the baking time will be closer to 20 minutes.
- Allow to cool completely. Cut in a graph pattern to make 16 squares.

Feel free to experiment with these!
While we love these just as they are posted in the recipe, they can make a great base for experimentation. One of my friends made these with a little mint extract to give them a "grasshopper" taste. I suppose you could make a Keto Mint frosting as well to dress them up for a party.
I really love frosted brownies but Thom...the main recipe tester doesn't. If you do like frosted brownies you can always use this quick and easy recipe to frost them...
Keto Cream Cheese Frosting
- 4oz Cream Cheese Softened
- 5 Tablespoons Heavy whipping cream
- 2 Tablespoons Coca Powder (or to taste)
- 2 tsp of powdered low carb sweetener
Stir until the powder is wet and whip everything together in the Kitchen-aid with the whip attachment.
Add more cream if it is too thick...keep whipping if it is too thin.
Keto Desserts are a matter of personal preference...
You shouldn't use them everyday to satisfy your cravings but it's okay to have them once in a while to fill in the gaps where the carbs used to be. Yes the low carb lifestyle means that you probably won't have as many cravings as you did when you were a sugar burner.
But the cravings wont go away completely...so now you have these in your arsenal and can use them whenever you like.
Hint: If you find yourself having a ton of "sweet" cravings on the Keto Diet you are probably lacking enough fat...or calories, but probably fat. So take a look at your macros if this is an issue for you.
I hope you all enjoy these and if you have developed a favorite version, I would love it if you would leave me a comment!
