What Is A Keto Diet Anyway?
In short, the keto diet is a low-carb, high-fat diet. It lowers blood sugar and insulin levels, and shifts the body’s metabolism away from carbs and towards fat and ketones. A ketogenic diet may provide many health benefits, especially with metabolic, neurological or insulin-related diseases.
There are a number of different types of keto diets, do your research and be sure to talk with your doctor before starting any new diet.
Look For These Sugar Replacements
When baking low carb and keto recipes, you’re going to want to look for a sugar substitute. I’ve found that the Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener is fantastic. I found both the classic and golden at my local Sprouts. You can also order Lakanto products online.
In place of all-purpose flour, I used super fine almond flour by Bob’s Red Mill. I also found this at my local Sprouts.
How To Make Fudgy Keto Brownies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line an 8×8 inch baking dish with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, add the almond flour, cocoa powder, both sugar substitutes, baking powder and salt. Stir until well combined then add eggs, vanilla, coconut oil, and olive oil. Stir just until batter is combined then transfer to baking dish. Using a spoon that’s been coated in coconut oil, press evenly into pan. Top with dark chocolate chunks if desired. Bake for 20 minutes, remove from oven and let cool completely. Cut into squares and serve.
Once your dry ingredients have been combined in the mixing bowl, add the wet ingredients, stirring until batter forms. Transfer batter to prepared baking dish, top with dark chocolate chunks if desired and bake for 20 minutes.
Tip: To press brownie batter into pan, use a spoon that’s been coated in melted coconut oil to spread evenly. Helps with sticking.
Remove hot brownies from oven and let cool completely. Tip: Use a plastic knife to cut brownies into squares, helps from brownies sticking to knife.
These keto brownies do NOT disappoint. Try refrigerating too.
How To Serve Low Carb Brownies
Serve brownies in squares room temperature, warmed slightly in the microwave or chilled. Try topping with a keto friendly vanilla ice cream too.
How To Store Keto Brownies
Store any leftover brownies in an airtight container in refrigerator for up to 3 days.
