If you’re trying to stay low carb then you have probably had to figure out a few tricks to make some of your favorite recipes keto-compliant!  One of my favorite desserts is brownies!  I definitely would not want to live in a world where I couldn’t eat brownies 🙂

This keto brownies recipe is my second brownies recipe this week (yesterday was Paleo!) that will help you to have a delicious low carb treat.

I should note that this recipe was created a bit by accident!  I intended on making this a cheesecake swirl brownie but after adding in my brownies, the swirl was not happening.

So, they became chocolate cheesecake bars and I’m pretty excited about the results!

Recipe Notes:

Swapping out different ingredients may result in different results.  When you are baking and using paleo-friendly baking ingredients, be sure to adjust according to your ingredients.  Coconut flour tends to require much more liquid than its almond flour counterpart.  If you swap out almond flour for coconut flour, you will also need to adjust the liquid ingredients!  Otherwise you may end up with crumbly brownies!

For example, almond flour tends to have higher fat yet lower carbs than coconut flour.  This could impact both your final baked product and your nutrition (if you are tracking macros or trying to stick to a low carb or keto diet.)

Paleo leap had a great comparison for coconut and almond flour if you are looking for more information!

    I was looking up keto brownie recipes and came across yours, I wanted to try it out but you didn’t list how many eggs to use. Would you mind adding that?

    Thanks.

    I LOVE these. My one question is how to stop the top from burning? I am assuming the sweetener and almond flour just burn quicker. Foil?

      yes definitely try covering! or moving your oven rack down a tad to move the top a little farther away from direct heat 🙂
