These Keto Brownies are an easy recipe with the most delicious, fudgy texture that melts in your mouth. You won’t believe they are sugar-free brownies with that bursting chocolate flavor. Plus, these easy-to-make Keto Brownies are also gluten-free and dairy-free!

Can I eat brownies on a keto diet?

No, you can’t eat classic store-bought brownies on a keto diet. The brownies from the bakery or your grocery store are made with high-carb flour, sugar and contain way too many carbs to be part of a keto menu.

However, you can make the best keto brownies in less than 30 minutes at home with this recipe. Keep reading to learn how to make keto almond flour brownies.

What are keto brownies?

Keto Brownies are low-carb brownies made with sugar-free sweeteners, low-carb flour. They contain 4 times fewer carbs than a regular brownie square and won’t keep you out of ketosis.

Keto Brownies with almond flour

How to make Keto Brownies?


It’s super simple to make the best keto chocolate brownies at home using a few basics ingredients. All you need to make brownies with almond flour is:

  • Ultra-fine almond flour – make sure you use blanched almond flour and not almond meal to avoid gritty brownies. Read how to choose your keto flour.
  • Eggs – an egg replacer won’t work for this recipe. Try my egg-free keto brownies if you don’t want to use eggs.
  • Melted butter or melted coconut oil for a dairy-free option. In case you ask, yes, butter is keto-friendly!
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Baking powder
  • Sea salt
  • Erythritol or any keto sweetener you love like allulose or xylitol.
  • Vanilla extract

How to make keto brownies

In another mixing bowl, beat eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract.

Combining wet to dry ingredients

Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir with a spoon just until combined. The batter of a brownie keto recipe is thicker than regular brownies.

Don’t try to thin out the batter by adding almond milk or more liquids.

Baking the brownies

Transfer the brownie batter into an 8×8-inch baking pan covered with oiled parchment paper.

Spread the brownie batter evenly to cover the pan. Bake your low-carb brownies for 20 minutes to 25 minutes or until edges are dry and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a moist crumb.

Cooling down

Cool down the brownies on a cooling rack for 30 minutes before glazing or slicing.

Sugar free brownies

How to serve sugar-free brownies?

This fudgy brownie recipe is delicious on its own or topped with a sugar-free brownie glazing.

Keto ganache

For the chocolate ganache aka. keto brownie glazing you will need:

  • Sugar-free chocolate chips
  • Heavy cream or canned coconut cream

To make the keto ganache recipe, add the sugar-free chocolate chips and heavy cream in a saucepan. Bring the saucepan under medium heat and heat, stirring gently until the chocolate melts and the mixture is glossy and melted.

Spread the keto chocolate brownies glazing over the brownie before cutting in squares.

Keto brownie toppings

Other low-carb brownie toppings you can add to your brownie square are:

  • A scoop of sugar-free ice cream.
  • Unsweetened whipped cream or whipped coconut cream if dairy-free.
  • Plain Greek yogurt or coconut yogurt if dairy-free.
  • Keto fruits like raspberries or strawberries.

How to store keto brownies?

You can store these keto brownie squares for up to 4 days in an airtight container in the fridge. Their texture gets fudgier with time.

You can also freeze keto brownies in a sealed individual bag, square by square, or in an airtight box. Thaw brownies at room temperature for at least 4 hours before eating.

Why do you use almond flour and not coconut flour?

Almond flour brownies are way fudgier and moister than coconut flour brownies. In fact, these low-carb flours have very different properties. Coconut flour, for instance, is extremely high in fiber and soaks up liquid very fast.

When used in a recipe, it needs way more eggs or liquid to compensate.

For coconut flour keto brownies, use my sugar-free brownie recipe. It’s made of a combo of almond flour and coconut flour.

Brownie add-ons

You can tweak this keto brownie recipe and make it even more delicious by adding some delicious things into the batter. For example, try to stir in 1/2 cup of one of the ingredients below:

  • Chopped walnuts
  • Chopped pecans
  • Toasted coconut flakes
  • Sugar-free chocolate chips

Any of these ingredients add texture to the brownies and balance very well their moist crumbs.

Can I double the recipe?

You can double up this low-carb brownie recipe by adding twice the amount of each ingredient into the mixing bowl.

Then, make sure you increase the baking time by a third, baking your brownies from 30-35 minutes.

Keto Brownie recipe

Also, remember that doubling up the recipe changes the net carbs per serving! A square will be twice as thick, and if you keep the serving size at 16 squares per brownie, you will get 4.4 grams of net carbs per serving.

How many carbs in keto brownies?

A keto brownie recipe contains 4 times fewer carbs than regular store-bought brownies.

For one 1-ounce square, these keto brownies contain 2.2 grams of net carbs. They also contain 15.7 grams of fat that help you reach your fat macros and keep you full and satisfied.

As a result, these keto brownies are guilt-free dessert on your keto journey. It fixes your sweet tooth with minimal carbs and adds up to your fat macros to reach your goals.

The best pan for keto brownies

Keto Brownies are made with almond flour have a different batter texture, and consequently, they don’t bake in the same as regular wheat-based brownies.

The best pan to make fudgy keto brownies that bake within 25 minutes is a:

  • 8×8-inch pan – wider pans make the brownies super thin and too dry. A smaller pan makes brownies thicker and longer to bake.
  • Non-stick aluminum pan – silicone pan or glass pan make keto brownies longer to bake or undercooked after the recommended baking time.
  • Covered with parchment paper, lightly oil with coconut oil.

How to tell my keto brownies are done?

There are a few things you can do to ensure that your brownies are baked to perfection.

  • Use a timer – that’s my first recommendation to ensure you don’t overbake the brownies.
  • Visual check – check your brownies after 20 minutes. Your almond flour brownies are cooked when the top is set but still bouncy when touched, it crackles, and the edges start to dry out. Also, the center still looks moist.
  • Insert a toothpick – if the pick comes out wet with uncooked batter, keep baking. But if the pick has few moist pieces of brownie crumbs, it’s ready. Don’t wait until the toothpick come out dry, or the brownie will be dry as well.

    • Liquid and solid coconut oil are the same thing. Coconut oil is liquid above 23 C and solidify in contact with cold. Some coconut oil contains additives to be liquid all the time, even in cold atmosphere. Anyway, in my baking recipes you can use any coconut oil but for no bake recipes, you must use pure coconut oil that has no additive or it won’t firm up your dessert at cold temperature,
