So much chocolatey goodness!

There are a few tricks I learned along the way when it comes to making keto brownies. The most important thing is not to overcook them! Which is hard! I have the most difficult time knowing when brownies are done because you can’t really tell when they start to brown.

Additional Notes

Don’t be alarmed by the high total carb count! Fiber and erythritol (the main ingredient in Swerve) do not affect blood sugar in the same way that regular carbs do, so we’ve subtracted them from the total carb count. You’ll see that the net carbs are much lower once you remove the sugar alcohol and fiber.

Tips for making the best keto brownie recipe:

  • As mentioned above, do not overbake brownies! The toothpick rule doesn’t really apply. You actually want to have some crumbs on the toothpick. Start checking them around 15 minutes and do not bake them longer than 20 minutes. Trust me!
  • Parchment paper works best to keep brownies from sticking.
  • Take the eggs out of the fridge about 30 minutes before you plan to start making these brownies.
  • Let the chocolate butter mixture cool for a few minutes before adding it to your eggs. Otherwise, it will cook your eggs!
  • Make sure you don’t overmix the batter. I whipped the keto sweetener and eggs together with an electric mixer and then used a spatula to mix in the rest of the ingredients.
  • I highly recommend adding the espresso powder. It enhances the chocolate flavor. Instant coffee works too. If you don’t like coffee, don’t worry, you can’t taste it.
  • Brownies need to cool before you cut into them. If you cut them too soon, you’ll get dry brownies.

The keto dessert of your dreams!

Brownies are just the best. With this classic keto brownie recipe, you can eat them plain or top them with keto ice cream, add nuts or berries to the batter. You can even add chocolate chips for more chocolatey goodness. All that amazingness without the guilt of all the carbs, keto perfection right here!

Here’s what my teammate Jenna had to say after making these keto brownies:

“We all loved these brownies and not a single one of the kids asked if they were keto, so that’s a big win in my book! These have a great flavor, especially once they sit for a bit. They are chocolaty, chewy, and the perfect brownie! You’ll never guess they’re sugar-free!”

    I love these and wanted to add that I’ve used frozen avocado and they were still good

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing, Lisa! Good to know the frozen avocado worked well for you!

  2. Jess

    Great go-to brownie recipe. Somedays I could not help it and had more than one. I really suggest adding walnuts, that’s what I did. Also, takes a while for keto desserts to set. I patiently waited an hour or so before cutting and refrigerating. I patiently waited a day before eating it. Obviously, these were really good.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      So glad you love them and thanks for suggesting the walnuts!

  3. Becky

    I substituted avocado oil for the butter. They still turned out good, and I didn’t have to feel guilty about my cholesterol!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Awesome! Thanks for letting us know yours turned out yummy!

  4. Pamela LeMaster

    Well, I’m scratch’n my booboo? On Keto, we’re usually allowed around 26 carbs per day and 1 of these brownies are 28 carbs…………Or are these for a cheat day LOL……..just a question, I am enjoying your site, I have my gallbladder but have to watch it……..

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! Thanks for the feedback, Pamela! These have 3.5 net carbs per serving. Hoping this helps!

  5. Elsa tejada

    I love anything chocolate and this recipe looks very easy to make😊

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hope you enjoy these too!
