Making These Brownies Gluten Free & Low Carb
Brownies are usually loaded with carbs. And that's mainly attributed to the fact that the average fudge brownie recipe uses ingredients like sugar, regular flour, and milk chocolate. All of which are filled with - you guessed it - carbs.
With that being said, it's easy to replace all of those ingredients with low carb keto friendly ingredients. And, it's also easy to make these keto brownies taste just like regular brownies.
So, today's keto brownie recipe is made with almond flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, and confectioners erythritol. All of which have very few net carbs and no gluten. In fact, this blanched almonds Flour By Kirkland's has just 2 net carbs per 28g. That's not only the lowest amount of net carbs I've seen for almond flour, but that's also 10x less net carbs than normal flour.
Oh, and if you want, you can also use cashew flour, sunflower seed flour, or walnut flour in place of the almond.
Also, to keep the carbs even lower in these almond flour brownies I used a small amount of Unflavored Whey Protein Powder.
A lot of times you can replace some of the flour in a recipe with it, and save yourself some carbs. So, that's exactly what I did for today's low carb keto brownie recipe. If you don't have Unflavored Whey Protein - or don't want to buy it - just use more almond flour. And if you pick up some of the protein powder, you can use it to make this almond flour french toast next!
How To Make Keto Brownies Using Almond Flour
So, the process of making these almond flour brownies is super simple. And if you ever made brownies before, it will be a breeze. But even if this is your first time, you'll still find it to be very easy.
Now get out all of the ingredients and let's get baking!
Step 1: Making the Brownie Batter
First thins first, pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175°C).
Now the butter and chocolate chips to a small bowl and melt them in the microwave in 2, 1-minute increments. You'll want to make sure to take it out and give it a stir after 1 minute, then microwave again until the chocolate and butter is completely melted.
Next, whisk the melted butter and chocolate chips until a chocolate sauce forms. Then when it does, add the almond flour, erythritol, cocoa powder, protein powder, and salt to the bowl and mix until a crumbly consistency forms.
Once it does, add and mix 1 egg at a time until all 4 eggs are incorporated into the ingredients and a brownie batter forms.
Step 2: Baking the Brownies
Now at this point, line an 8x8 dish with parchment paper and coat it with baking spray. Then add the batter to the dish, and evenly spread it out with a rubber spatula. And if you want, add some chopped walnuts on top.
Next bake the brownies for around 25 minutes. You'll know they are done when you can insert a toothpick into the center of the dish, and brownie residue is stuck to it. It's always better to slightly undercook the brownies if you want really fudgy brownies.
Finally, slice them into squares, and enjoy the gooey brownie!
How to Store brownies
So, this recipe will make about 9 brownies squares, the perfect amount to have some on hand for the week. Now, if your family is home when these come out hot from the oven, all of them will be gone before you even get a chance to grab seconds!
But if you do manage to save one or two, you can store them either in an airtight container or wrapped tightly with plastic wrap at room temperature for about 4 days.
And if you want to freeze the brownies to keep them around for longer, they'll last for about 3 months.
Wrapping it all up
That is how to make the most delicious dessert cuisine with healthy, wholesome ingredients. Everyone you share this amazing recipe with will love it! It's such a great recipe to make if you're hosting or just want to treat the family to some deliciousness.
