Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C) degrees.
  2. Line a 9” by 13” (23 x 33 cm) baking dish with parchment paper.
  3. Use a hand mixer or stand mixer to combine the butter, almond butter, eggs, and sweetener. Mix well until the sweetener is thoroughly incorporated.
  4. Add the cocoa powder, almond flour, baking powder, salt, water, vanilla extract, and instant coffee powder and stir until smooth. Lightly mix in the chopped chocolate bar.
  5. Pour the mixture into the baking dish and smooth with a spatula. The batter will be thick.

Tips

For a less sweet brownie you can reduce or eliminate the erythritol sweetener.

For an even more decadent dessert, serve with unsweetened whipping cream, beaten to soft peaks.

Store covered in the refrigerator to prevent drying out.

Keto: Dairy free #6

Following a healthy dairy-free diet doesn’t have to mean depriving yourself — and this week’s meal plan is proof of that.

On the menu, we have some spice-heavy keto dishes like our Sindhi-style lamb curry. Additionally, there are some quick and easy weeknight favorites such as our tasty tuna zoodle salad and chicken stir-fry.

While following this plan, if you’re not a big fan of certain ingredients, feel free to swap them. If, for example, you don’t enjoy eating lamb, you could always substitute it for chicken or beef.

The same goes for vegetables. If there’s something you don’t fancy, change it for another low-carb veggie. Check out our visual vegetable guide for more inspiration.

Get ready to enjoy some of our favorite keto meals while staying below 20 grams of net carbs per day.

    Can I make these without the erithrol or will they not come out any good? as I don’t use any type of sweetness. I know they may not taste as sweet but I’m okay with that

    These have not been tested with no added sweetener.

    They’ll be fine without the sweetener. That’s how I’d make them - the almond butter and 80% chocolate will add enough sweetness for those used to eating keto. Might not be so palatable for those who eat a ‘normal’ diet if you’re sharing.

    Beautiful cakes with a perfect fudgey texture

    Yum! I have made these twice now & are now in my favourites. I doubled the dark chocolate. I found that they are better to be cut after the tray is put in the fridge and cold. They are also yum heated up and topped with a little cream for dessert 👍😊

    Can you just use extra butter or do you have to have almond butter?

    Dairy butter and almond butter are very different in taste and texture.

    You could try peanut butter.

    I just made these and they are very good! I added 1/4 cup of chopped pecans and they were a great addition!

    These turned out very well for me. I froze them and microwave them one at a time. Very decadent with whipped cream on them. I used crunchy almond butter as it was what I had, and it replaced the need for chopped nuts in the brownies. I really liked the coffee overtones. I used a little less erythritol than called for, plenty sweet for me.

    Is it possible they were overbaked?

    I Followed the recipe exactly the mixture was very thick, it wouldn’t pour into the tray is this normal. I ended up adding more water to loosen the texture as it looked more like sponge texture.
    Baked for 20 mins and they were still dry

    As shown in the video, this should be a very thick batter.

    These are delicious. Brought them to a dinner party to share for dessert. They were very well received - both adults and kids loved them. We enjoyed ours with Keto icecream and a sliced strawberry on top. Thanks for the recipe.

    Yes, these will freeze well! You can let them thaw on the counter when you are ready to enjoy them.
