My Keto Brownies are even lower in carbs than the recipe above.
They’re made with a base of high fat macadamia nuts, along with salt, baking soda, dark chocolate, coconut oil, erythritol, eggs, and vanilla stevia.
Brownies Egg Substitute
What’s better than a brownies egg substitute? My egg free brownies.
Here, I’ve done the work for you, so there’s no need to mess around with a substitute that may or may not work.
My egg free brownies are actually called Everything-Free Brownies because they’re also nut free and dairy free.
And don’t forget that they’re grain and gluten free too!

Frosted brownie fan? If you’re looking for brownies with frosting, I highly recommend my Chocolate Frosting.
It’s not just for cupcakes anymore!
Healthy Brownies Recipes
Brownies are one of my husband’s favorite desserts, so I make them quite often.
He loves chocolatey treats, and I love that he’s getting a healthy dessert rather than processed junk food.
Below are my favorite healthy brownie recipes!
The five-ingredient brownie in my latest book, Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry, is a fan favorite.
These healthy brownies are not only flourless and nut-free, they’re also super easy to throw together.
All you need to make these are chocolate chips, shortening, coconut sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract.
Have you used chocolate chips in brownies? It creates a super-rich and gooey texture. Time to get baking!
Caramel for Brownies
My Caramel Brownies knock it out of the park –Mr. Pantry goes crazy for these. Just think:
- Brownies with Almond Flour (see recipe above)
- Caramel Sauce
- Chocolate Ganache
Need I say more? This is one of my family’s most requested desserts.
I know your family will love them as much as we do. Brownie points all around!
Brownies with Peanut Butter
Want to elevate my delicious Brownies with Almond Flour yet again?
How ’bout peanut butter and a thick layer of chocolate ganache? Heck yeah.
My Buckeye Brownies with Peanut Butter are little brownie bites of heaven and so easy you’ll want to make them over and over again.
Brownies a la Mode
Are you a fan of brownies a la mode? We are.
Heap a scoop of my Vegan Vanilla Ice Cream over my Nut Free Brownies, and you’ve got the perfect allergen free treat for parties.
My Nut Free Brownies in the photo above are made with a base of sunbutter, plus cacao, chocolate chips, eggs, and a hint of maple syrup.
This rich flourless brownie is quite the crowd pleaser.
Brownies Recipe Cocoa Powder
Have you ever made brownies with cocoa powder? If not, you’re in for quite a treat.
The magical Brownies above are made with a base of cocoa powder and almond butter and pack a high protein punch.
They’re so healthy you could eat them for breakfast!
Brownies in a Mug
Mug cakes won’t ever go out of style in this house. We love this single serve treat.
My five ingredient Mug Cake is so similar to a cake like brownie that I had to feature it here as an easy Mug Brownies recipe option for you.
My Chocolate Zucchini Bread is a fan favorite because it tastes like Hoho’s when smothered in Homemade Whipped Cream.
Change this bread to brownies by placing the batter in an 8×8 baking dish.
Reduce the baking time to 18-22 minutes, and voila, your brownies with zucchini dreams will have come true.

This post is an oldie but goodie from the archives. I first shared these Brownies with Almond Flour in 2013
Why do you use Wellbees almond flour? Almonds are given a hefty dose of pesticides. Why not an organic brand?
Renay, I would love to use organic almond flour! But then I would be testing recipes with a product that is economically inaccessible to the majority of my readers. Conventional almond flour is already so pricey that many cannot afford it. Thanks for your great question :-)
Kathy M Anderson says
How can I convert the dates to a non-nutritive sweetener for lower carb count?
Kathy, i haven’t tried that so not sure. I think you’ll love this recipe for Keto brownies:
Leah Saks says
Hi Elana! These look great. I like the addition of dates.
What can I use instead of stevia?
Leah, I haven’t tried that so not sure :-)
Here in Sydney, Australia, it doesn’t appear egg white protein powder is available. I’v tried many outlets but have not had any success. I love your website and have been a follower for many years but have not made lots of recipes that I wanted to because of not being able to get egg white protein powder. It is too expensive to order online from Amazon because of the shipping costs, sometimes shipping being more expensive than the item required. Is there a substitute I could use, or not use at all? What does it to to a recipe and would the outcome be successful without it?
Noela, thanks so much for your comment! I’m sorry that you are having trouble finding egg white protein powder. There are less than a dozen recipes here on the website that call for this ingredient, so you may want to try some recipes that do not call for it; here’s a link to my Egg-Free Recipes page for you:
And here is a link to the general recipes page which has several hundred recipes:
I hope you find something you like!
I’m in Sydney too. I just did a quick Google and came up with online stockists: iHerb and Protein Supplies Australia. There are probably more but that is a start for you.
Needing something like the old days when I used to eat brownies and found this recipe!
They are absolute nirvana and I’m in heaven. I used TCHO 100% chocolate medallions and plain stevia powder. I hope this brownie coma lasts a while. Thank you so much for this recipe. It’s a keeper!
Geege, thanks for letting me know these are absolute nirvana!
My daughter and I made these tonight for the first time. I didn’t have enough almond flour, so we substituted with Tigernut flour. We also used cocoa powder (I think it was little over 2 oz versus 4) instead of the chopped chocolate and vanilla extract instead of vanilla stevia (I didn’t have either of those). They were absolutely delightful!! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
I only have steviaclear, not the vanilla stevia. Will my brownies taste like they are missing vanilla???
Tonya, yes if you do not use vanilla, it will be missing the vanilla flavor :-)
Anne Lacey says
These were amazing! I didn’t have quite enough coconut oil left, so I used half avocado oil and half coconut oil. I used Bakers brand unsweetened chocolate, and medjool dates soaked in hot water for 5 minutes to soften. The recipe was absolutely perfect, these are such a wonderful replacement to regular brownies! I don’t eat gluten or sugar anymore and I still crave my chocolatey sweets. Thank you for this! :)
Anne, thanks for letting me know these brownies are absolutely perfect!
