Keto Brownie Recipe
This delicious keto brownie recipe is perfectly designed as a single serve to remove any possible snaccidents which involve you eating an entire tray of brownies. We’ve all been there, am I right? Maybe just me, asking for a friend? Regardless, in just twenty short minutes you will have a gooey, gluten free brownie ready for eating.
I often make this recipe after dinner, especially on those days when I am just craving chocolate! We usually have all of the ingredients sitting in the pantry except for chocolate chips, those tend to get eaten in our house. I have made this recipe with no chocolate chips and it was still gorgeous but my favourite addition is actually white chocolate chips, they are my jam! You do you when it comes to adding chocolate chips, some chopped up Lindt dark chocolate also works a treat in this recipe.
Gluten free, Dairy free, Vegan Option, Sugar free and Keto-friendly
Why make only a single serving?
In the thick of the pandemic and Sydney’s harsh lock down laws, like a lot of others, my husband and I found ourselves overeating. I was happily spending a lot of my spare time developing recipes but that meant that we had a lot of baked goods lying around the house and our waistlines were ever expanding. Like many others, sometimes I can find it hard to stop at one so I wanted to create a recipe that removed the temptation to go back for more and over eat. That is where the single serve keto brownie recipe was born and I have been making it ever since.
Nine times out of ten I actually double this recipe to make one for myself and one for my darling husband. Just double the quantity of ingredients and split the brownie batter into two ramekins prior to baking.
Is this Keto Brownie Recipe Vegan?
The answer is YES, if you want it to be. I one hundred percent prefer the taste of butter or ghee but this little brownie still turns out absolutely delicious and fudgey if you use coconut oil. I don’t recommend using a vegan butter, not because it won’t work in the recipe, but because of the ingredients used, hello highly inflammatory vegetable oils. Coconut oil is the best option to make this keto brownie recipe a vegan one.
Is this Recipe Gluten Free?
Of course this keto brownie recipe is gluten free like 99.9% of my recipes. Almond meal is used as the ‘flour’ in this brownie and works perfectly. Unfortunately I can’t guarantee a replacement for the almond flour that I know will work. If you try an alternative, leave a comment below and let me know how it turns out.
Can I add mix-ins to this recipe?
Do you prefer nuts in your brownie? Maybe some coconut or your favourite type of chocolate. Then why not add it in? Personally, I’m not really a nuts in my brownie kind of gal, but I know that walnuts are a popular option so feel free to chop some up and through them through the batter prior to baking.
Ingredients for Keto Brownie Recipe
Nut butter – almond butter and ABC butter (almond, brazil, cashew) are the two I have used most to make this recipe
Cacao Powder – you could also use an unsweetened cocoa powder in this recipe.
Stevia – replace the sugar with a high quality stevia blend like this one from Naturally Sweet Australia.
Chocolate Chips – You can use whichever type of chocolate floats your boat for this, I have used milk choc, white choc and dark choc, all taste amazing but if you are after a vegan keto brownie then you will need to stick to a dark, low sugar, dairy free chocolate like Lindt 70% or 85% chopped into pieces or sugar free chocolate chips.
Almond meal – keeping it keto/low carb with this amazing flour substitute.
