I’m not afraid to call these the world’s best keto brownies because they indeed are my family’s favorite dessert – and they aren’t even on a keto diet.

Finding the best recipe was a long road of trial and error. However, I am proud to share with you these insanely fudgy and moist brownies that have a crispy top. On top of that, these melt in your mouth brownies are entirely grain-free and sugar-free. I can honestly say that I would choose the keto version over the “regular” brownies at any time.

Watch the recipe video below to see exactly how to make the brownies.

Should I stop talking about how amazingly fudgy and chocolatey these keto brownies are and start sharing the recipe with you? Well, I just finished shooting the brownies, and I hope the pictures express their deliciousness well enough. Needless to say, I’m eating one right now as I write this blog post and my keyboard is full of chocolate goodness -the kind of mess I love.

Ingredients for World’s Best Fudgy Keto Brownies Recipe

Hopefully, you’ll try these keto brownies, friends, because they are my absolute favorite dessert and I could eat them every day.

ingredients for the brownies

To transform the “regular” brownies into a keto version we have to ditch the sugar, the wheat flour and milk chocolate (suuuuper high in sugar).

  • 1/2 cup almond flour or 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 3 eggs, room temperature
  • 10 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 3.5 oz dark chocolate (or unsweetened chocolate chips)
  • 3/4 – 1 cup erythritol
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp espresso powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Tips for choosing the best ingredients

The quality of the ingredients is crucial for the best keto brownies. I’ll share with you some of the tips I think truly make a difference in this recipe.

  1. Chose high-quality chocolate. Use the highest cocoa percentage you can find – not 100% necessary to use 100% dark chocolate because it’s very expensive. Any chocolate with a percentage of 85-99% is perfect. My favorite brands are Lindt, Baker’s Chocolate and Lilys’s Chocolate Chips (completely sugar-free).
  2. Use a super fine almond flour. The almond flour combined with cocoa powder helps a lot with the texture. If you want to use coconut flour, reduce the quantity of almond flour to about 2 tablespoons and adjust if necessary.
  3. The sweeteners I recommend and don’t give that cooling effect ( no aftertaste ) are Lakanto Monkfruit (1:1 sugar substitute) and the powdered Monk Fruit Erythritol Blend from SoNourished. The second favorite brands are Swerve, Erythritol, and Xylitol. Using a powdered sweetener keeps the brownies moist (at least that’s what I’ve noticed). Stevia isn’t a favorite of mine in baked goods as it tends to get bitter and overpowers the chocolate goodness.

Instructions for the best keto brownies

  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Line a 9×9 square baking pan with parchment paper or grease it with butter. Set aside.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, add the softened butter and chocolate. Melt in 30 seconds rounds and stir until they are well incorporated.
  3. In other bowl combine the dry ingredients: almond flour, cocoa powder, erythritol, espresso powder, baking powder.
  4. Beat the eggs for 30 seconds, then add the melted chocolate and continue mixing.
  5. Add the dry ingredients and mix until well incorporated. Try not to over mix the batter, to get the fudgiest brownie in the entire world.
  6. Pour the keto brownies batter into the pan and spread evenly with the back of a spatula
  7. Bake for about 18-20 minutes or until a crispy thin layer forms and the brownie is moist in the middle. Let it cool for a few minutes then cut it into 16 square. Enjoy! BONUS TIP: Make sure you don’t overbake the brownie because it will be cakey and not fudgy.

Notes

Depending on the desired sweetness use more or less sweetener. I find that 3/4 cup sweetener is more than enough.

  1. Thanks So much…delicious and really satisfied my chocolate craving. I also appreciate that this recipe uses less chocolate and cocoa than others but still provides the richness. This is a keeper!

  2. Have these baking in the oven now. Thank you for the recipe. It does not say when to add the vanilla so I just put it in with the chocolate mixture. Hopefully they turn out as amazing as they look and smell.

  3. Is it just almond or coconut flour or both?

    • I tested the recipe with both flours, and I love the almond flour brownies more because they are way fudgier. I gave the coconut flour alternative in case people with allergies want to make the recipe.

  4. Made these today, super yummy!!!
