What is a Brookie?

A brookie is basically a cross between a brownie and a cookie.

My chocolate keto brookies recipe was originally posted way back in July 2018. It needed a lot of love and a bit of revamp in both the recipe and the pictures. I have to say it was fun to remake and shoot these incredibly delicious surprisingly sugar free cookies.

Keto Brookies Ingredients

Making your own healthy brookies at home is easy. Most of the ingredients you will already have in your pantry.

I have used gelatin and collagen for good gut health. Plus, their addition to the keto brookies recipe make the brookie chewy and delicious. Please note you do not dissolve the gelatin just follow the recipe steps as written.

As always, I use a double-acting baking powder. Bobs Red Mill or Lotus Pantry do not contain aluminium so you do not get any aftertaste or bitterness from the baking powder.

For the sweetener, I use Sukrin erythritol/steviol sweetener. As erythritol recrystallizes upon cooling this also makes the brookies crisp.

Cell Squared have an amazing range of clean keto-friendly pantry items. I have used unsweetened cacao, salt flakes and coconut butter in this recipe.

How to make them step by step

The recipe for the brookies is super simple and even the kids can help make these at home. A simple “mix it together” roll and bake the brookies take less than 10 minutes to get into the oven. Honestly, the hardest bit is waiting for them to cool.

I have included a Thermomix keto brookie recipe and method. We have a load of thermie fans and this recipe is incredibly easy to make in your mixer.

Why the addition of collagen and gelatin?

I have added collagen and gelatin for claimed health benefits but also to give a little bit of chew and crispness to these brookies. 

Collagen and gelatin are not only included in the keto brownie cookies but also quite a lot of my baking recipes.

Notes

INGREDIENTS AND SUBSTITUTES
Butter can be replaced with nut butter for a dairy free and paleo brookie recipe. 
Egg can be replaced with 1/4 of an avocado or chia egg for an egg free brookie.
To make a keto vegan brookie swap the ingredients as above and omit the collagen and gelatin. Add 2 tsp of agar agar instead.
Coconut butter adds a delicious flavour to the brookie. Extra virgin firm coconut oil can be used instead.
For a nut free brookie replace the almond meal with lupin flour or sesame flour. Alternatively omit the flour and butter and replace with 200g seed butter.
I use Cell Squared unsweetened cacao powder.
BAKING TIPS
I use a fan forced oven. For a static oven increase the temperature to 190-200°C.
Allow a little room for the cookies to spread on the baking tray. 
STORAGE
Store in an airtight container in the fridge. Alternatively, these cookies can be frozen in a ziplock bag.

    A cookie and brownie together? Yes, please! Love this brookie recipe and so glad it’s keto too.

      So damn good!

    Yummo!! These are sooooo delish! Not too sweet; I love the bitter taste of 95% dark chocolate that I used. I also used walnuts as I didn’t have hazelnuts. A delicious biscuit (brookie) that can be served to anyone as they won’t realise that it is refined sugar free. Thanks Megan.

      My favourite recipe.

    Has anyone converted this to U.S. measurements? I used a converter that converted 100 grams to ~7 tablespoons. When I worked down to baking powder it was already converted from 20 grams to 2 tablespoons. If I followed that conversion then the first conversion should have been 10 tablespoons rather than 7. Now I really don’t think I know how to convert this recipe and it sounds so good.

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      Hi Johanna, the US measurement switch isnt under the list of the ingredients

    Is coconut butter the same as the solid coconut oil? What would i use as a substitute if I can’t find it?

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      Hri BrigAnn, no coconut butter is not the same. It is made with the flesh of the coconut and is sweet and very coconutty. It is available in the gluten free aisle in the supermarket or you could make your own with desiccated coconut in a high speed splender.

    I made these today and they are really easy and absolutely delicious 😋 the only thing I didn’t do was drizzle them with chocolate as I didn’t have enough but will try that next time… my husband loved them too so I’m having to hide them from him 😂 thanks Megan 🤩

  9. Karen

    I haven’t been able to find double active BP .where I do get some of my baking things online it’s out of stock

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      Hi Karen, you can go to a local health food shop or the recipe does have a link to an online store that sells it super cheap (along with loads of other keto products).

    Would these still work without the gelatine and collagen? I’m a vegetarian Keto-er. Thanks!

    1. Megan

      They sure do x

  11. Roswitha Macdougall

    Funny, FYI, the US Customary measures say- 50 cups of baking powder.

    1. Megan

      Whoopsie! I think I need to fix that one up lol

  12. Sam

    Do you have to use the erythritol?

    1. Megan

      You can use any choice of sweetener Sam

  13. Jen

    Hello there! I am new to the use of gelatin and collagen, so sorry for my ignorance but do you dissolve the gelatin and the collagen in hot water before? And if so, how much water?
    Thank you

    1. Megan

      Hi Jen, No need just add it tp the brownie mixture as per the steps.

  14. Meagan Rourke

    OMG- they look sensational!!!! 🤤
