Are Brownies Keto-Friendly?

Traditionally brownies made with regular ingredients like sugar and wheat flour are not keto-friendly. In addition, homemade brownies are incredibly high in carbs (15g of net carbohydrates in a square) and may quickly knock you out of ketosis.

Is Peanut Butter Keto-Friendly?

Peanut butter is a keto-friendly product that can be used in many recipes. But you need to know that not all peanut butter brands are great for someone following a keto diet because they contain additives and extra sugars, which might increase the amount of net carbohydrates.

  • Dark Chocolate – always use unsweetened chocolate for a more intense chocolate flavor.
  • Sweetener – you can use your favorite powdered sweeteners like monk fruit or erythritol.
  • Baking Powder – used to help the brownies become super fluffy.

For The Peanut Butter Filling

  • Peanut Butter – use natural creamy peanut butter.
  • Sweetener – use powdered sweetener to mix well into the peanut butter mixture.
  • Vanilla Extract – use the best quality of vanilla extract for an intense flavor.
