Key Ingredients

Keto Brownie ingredients on a white background
  • Chocolate – use a bittersweet chocolate for the best results. I use Natvia Baking Chocolate. You can any keto choc chips you prefer but I prefer to use bars, so it stays chunky.
  • Erythritol – I use Sukrin:1 sweetener. Other brands available are Lakanto, Natvia or So Nourished to name a few. Alternatively, use any keto sweetener that has a ratio of 1:1 with sugar and is also of a similar weight to sugar. If using something like Splenda you will need to adjust the sweetener as the weight measures are different.
  • Unsweetened cacao – please don’t use the sweet stuff. It is loaded with carbs. My favourite brand is Cell Squared.
  • Almond flour or almond meal – it doesn’t matter in this recipe. Either one will do for your keto brownie recipe to work out just perfect.

Step by Step Instructions

  1. Melt the butter, half the dark chocolate, salt flakes and sweetener. This can be done in a saucepan or in the microwave.
  2. Mix together the remaining keto brownie ingredients (leaving the choc chunks to fold through) in a separate bowl. If preferred use a hand mixer or stand mixer. Fold together all the ingredients in one bowl.

3. Pour into a 20 x 20 cm baking pan and bake 20-25 minutes in a preheated oven 170°C/350°F fan-forced.

4. Allow to cool in the pan before covering and chilling overnight.

5. Melt the ganache ingredients over low heat or in the microwave for 1 minute and 15 seconds on high. Stir until smooth and lump-free. Pour over chilled brownie. Spread the ganache and smooth over the top. Cover and chill until set. Cut into pieces.

For those of you who would prefer to make keto brownies in a Thermomix I have included instructions in the recipe card as well.

Frequently asked Questions

Can I freeze keto brownies?

Yes, you can! Freeze topped with ganache or without.

How do I store brownies?

simply keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week or pack in a ziplock bag in the freezer.

Can I make dairy free keto brownies?

Simply swap the butter for a plant-based spread or coconut butter. I prefer coconut butter as it also adds more flavour to the brownie.

Yes, you can! I have included air fryer baking methods.

Equipment

  • Breville Hand Mixer optional
  • 20 x 20 cm 8″ brownie pan recommended
  • Magimix (or Thermomix) optional

Ingredients 

  • 1 teaspoon (1 teaspoon) salt flakes REDUCE the salt if using fine salt or Himalayan salt as it is far more salty, see notes
  • 1/3 cup (0.3 cup) erythritol granulated
  • 120 g (0.5 cups) butter
  • 200 g (1 cups) keto dark chocolate roughly chopped
  • 3 (3) eggs lightly whisked
  • 1 tablespoon (1 tablespoon) vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons (2 teaspoons) baking powder
  • 1 cup (1 cup) almond meal (110g)

  • 100 g (3.5 oz) keto white chocolate roughly chopped leaving some big chunks
  • 100 g (3.5 oz) keto milk chocolate roughly chopped leaving some big chunks

OPTIONAL CHOCOLATE GANACHE

  • 70 g (0.25 cups) thickened cream or heavy cream
  • 60 g (0.5 cups) dark chocolate
  • 1-3 teaspoons (1 teaspoon) sticky keto syrup optional, I use Surkin Gold

Instructions

CONVENTIONAL METHOD

  • Preheat the oven to 170 ̊C/340°F. Line a 20cm x 20cm brownie pan with baking paper.
  • Combine the salt, sweetener and butter, and half the dark chocolate in a saucepan and simmer over low heat until the mixture is smooth. (Alternatively, do this step in the microwave).
  • In a large bowl add the eggs, vanilla, baking powder, almond meal and cacao; stir well to combine. Add the melted chocolate and stir well to combine. Fold through the remaining chocolate chunks and stir to combine. Spoon into the prepared tray and smooth over the top.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes. The brownie should still be very soft and fudgy. It will firm up upon cooling. Leave to cool. Cover and chill overnight for topping with ganache.
  • For the ganache; place all ingredients into a small saucepan and melt over gentle heat. Stir until the mixture is smooth. Spread over the brownie and chill until set. Slice into bars and serve.

THERMAL METHOD

  • Preheat the oven to 170 ̊C. Line a 20cm x 20cm brownie pan with baking paper.
  • Add half the dark chocolate to the mixer; chop 7 sec/speed 7. Add salt, butter and sweetener; cook 3 min/90℃/speed 1.
  • Add eggs, vanilla, baking powder, almond meal and cacao; mix 30 sec/speed 4. Fold through the remaining chocolate chunks, if using. Spoon into the prepared tray and smooth over the top.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes. The brownie should still be very soft and fudgy. It will firm up upon cooling. Leave to cool. Cover and chill overnight for topping with ganache.
  • (Personally, I prefer to do this in the microwave for 1 min 15 sec on high then stir). For the ganache; Place the ingredients into the mixer; chop 3 sec/speed 8. Scrape down sides of the mixer bowl; cook 2 min/50°C/speed 2 or until smooth. Spread over the brownie and cut into bars to serve.

AIR FRYER METHOD

  • Preheat the air fryer to 170 ̊C/340°F. Line a 20cm x 20cm brownie pan or pan that fits your model of air fryer with baking paper.
  • Prepare as per steps 2 and 3 above. Bake in the air fryer for 10-13 minutes. The brownie should still be very soft and fudgy. It will firm up upon cooling. Leave to cool. Cover and chill overnight for topping with ganache.
  • For the ganache; place all ingredients into a small saucepan and melt over gentle heat. Stir until the mixture is smooth. Spread over the brownie and chill until set. Slice into bars and serve.

Notes

  1. Chocolate – I use Lindt 95% cacao for this recipe. It is very low carb and sugar and has a delicious bitterness that balances with the sweetness. Use whatever chocolate you prefer.
  2. Almond Flour – use almond flour or almond meal. For a nut free brownie swap lupin flour or three tablespoons of coconut flour.
  3. Sweetener – I use Sukrin:1 sweetener in these brownies. Any white granular sweetener can be used as long as it is a 1:1 ratio of sweetness to sugar and check that the weight is the same as regular sugar or granulated sweetener before using.
  4. Storage – keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week. Alternatively, freeze in a ziplock bag.
  5. Salt Flakes – I use sea salt flakes in this recipe. If using fine ground salt, table salt or Himalayan salt reduce to just a pinch as they are far saltier.
  6. Nutritional values include both the brownie and ganache.
This recipe yields approximately 16-24 servings. The actual number of servings will depend on your preferred portion sizes. It is very rich so you may prefer smaller serves.

    Can’t wait to try this one out, looks so good…. is the nutritional value without the ganache I’m guessing?

    My hubby is a chocolate fudge brownie fan so am going to make these for him. The fact that they are keto means he can eat more than I usually allow him as he’s trying to cut back on carbs!

    Having had a gastric sleeve i have had to cut back on alot of the foods I really enjoyed prior to surgery. I absolutely love brownies but they are so sugar and carb loaded that I just don’t eat them, that is until now!
    I reduce the recipe down to 6 serves and OH MY GOD! I am in love!
    Now I’m scrolling through all the recipes on the website to see what other goodies I can make. 10 out of 10 !

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      That is so good Jessie. You can use the scale to reduce any of the recipes or choose to freeze the rest. I am so happy you enjoyed the recipe and a HUGE thank you for taking the time to review it for me. I hope you find loads more recipes to enjoy!
