Why? Because this Keto Brownies recipe is a win-win that lets you stick to your Low-Carb Diet while satisfying chocolate cravings.
My Keto Brownies’ ingredients are minimal since the recipe calls for only eight items: macadamia nuts, baker’s chocolate, eggs, coconut oil, erythritol, stevia, salt, and baking soda. That’s it!
While most brownie recipes use flour, this sugar-free Keto Brownies recipe uses macadamia nuts as its base.
Don’t worry, it’s nothing fancy, you use plain old macadamia nuts and grind them in the food processor, so there are no hard to find ingredients to make things complicated. Read along to learn how to make Keto Brownies that will quickly become a family favorite.
I knew I had to create the best Keto Brownies recipe because of your incredible response to my Keto Diet Recipes page. Have you seen it? If not, take a look because readers say it’s amazing!
I went on the Keto Diet in 2014 to help deal with Multiple Sclerosis. I’ve found that this, along with several other alternative strategies including exercise, HBOT, and removing radiofrequency radiation from our home have been incredibly helpful in surviving this awful disease.
I tested this sugar-free Keto Brownies recipe more than a dozen times. During the process of perfecting it, I noticed that erythritol bakes differently than other sweeteners such as honey or maple syrup.
While those sweeteners readily caramelize, erythritol does not during baking. I found that these sugar-free brownies were just a tad jiggly when I took them out of the oven. They set up beautifully once cooled for a full hour!
If you are wondering why I prefer my Keto Brownies with stevia, the stevia adds a sweet vanilla taste I love. Use the brand called for in the recipe to get the perfect sweetness.
Keto Brownies are a labor of love for my readers since I can’t eat them. If your digestion is compromised this recipe is not for you.
Erythritol, like other sugar alcohols, is tough on the gut. It’s also a corn-based sweetener and I gave up corn in 2001 when I went on a Paleo Diet. For more on this check out The Best Sweetener for the Keto Diet.
