These delicious Fudgy Chocolate Brownies are simple to make, gluten free, low carb, keto and sugar free. These are scrumptious enough for the holidays or any day of the year!
Is anyone else already thinking about holiday baking?
I know Thanksgiving is next week, but I am thinking about my Christmas holiday baking.
I bake A TON each year and I absolutely love it. I make all kind of cookies, brownies and bars and give them out to friends and family.
I really enjoy playing Christmas music and masking a mess in my kitchen while I bake 10-15 assorted cookies and bars. It’s exhausting but I do still really enjoy it.
I think it’s never too early to start thinking about. Especially with all of the uncertainty going on now, if baking makes you happy then I say go for it!
We could all use a little happy these days.
I make a whole bunch of varieties too. I make typical classic treats with sugar (unrefined of course) like my Christmas Chocolate Chip Cookies and Red Velvet Cookie Cups, but I also like to make sugar free desserts that I can eat too.
The truth is that most of us tend to overindulge around the holidays.
There’s more treats and desserts available, people are stress eating and mindless eating and we are just busier than usual. That’s why I don’t feel so bad if I eat some of my sugar free treats.
Many people can even gain between 5-15 pounds in just the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. That’s a lot of weight and as you get older it gets harder and harder to take off.
Trust me, I know from experience.
These brownies are made with just a few simple ingredients and are so easy to prepare. The best part (besides being super delicious) is that they are grain free, gluten free, low carb, keto and sugar free!
If you are worried about portion control and possibly overeating these brownies, go ahead and freeze the leftovers (if you have any!) I like to take one out and leave it on the counter to thaw out for 10-15 minutes and the texture and taste is still incredible.
By freezing some it helps prevent me from eating all of them in one serving. But just keeping it real, I have been known to eat these straight out of the freezer.
I didn’t break my tooth (thank goodness) and my chocolate craving was taken care of. Easy peasy!
No judgement, right? Thank you.
Even a child can make these babies (with supervision possibly) but that just goes to show you how ridiculously they are to make. I promise.
I would guess that the hardest part is cracking the eggs, which might take a little skill and practice. But I have faith in you, and all of the kids out there!
See how easy these are?
Just pour the batter into the greased pan and bake. BOOM!
Low carb, sugar free, grain free, gluten free chocolatey deliciousness.
You don’t even need an electric mixer to make these. There’s nothing that good old hand stirring with a big wooden spoon can handle.
You might get in a little exercise too and yes, I totally count that for my daily workout.
The texture is perfect, they aren’t too crumbly and do not fall apart. Isn’t that annoying?
I mean, don’t get me wrong I will eat all the crumbs, but I just don’t like them to be too messy. And I pinky promise, these are not.
Perfectly fudgy inside and crispy on top and the edges. Don’t you just love those crispy corners or edges?
I do. And I always pick a corner first, without fail.
How perfect do these look?
The best part of these brownies is that you can completely customize them to your liking. Go ahead and add some sugar free chocolate chips, or even sugar free white chocolate chips, sugar free peppermint chips, chopped walnuts (I personally don’t like nuts in my baked goods) or even swirl in some nut butter!
The possibilities are endless, go for it!
Remember, the rules for 2020 are getting smaller and smaller.
Full disclosure here, I also like to brig desserts that are sugar free to parties and gatherings so I can actually eat something. Yes, I am happy to share but I am really ensuring that I can enjoy a sweet treat too.
True story…my treats are typically the first to go.
Sorry for bragging….but it’s totally true.
Fudge Keto Chocolate Brownies
- 10 tablespoons butter
- 2/3 cup Monk Fruit or other sugar free alternative
- 1/2 cup Almond flour
- 1/4 cup cacao or cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup sugar free chocolate chips
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease an 8 x 8 pan with spray, coconut oil or butter.
In a mixing bowl, cream together butter, sugar and vanilla for about 2 minutes.
Add eggs one at a time, mixing well. Set aside.
In another bowl, whisk almond flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and chocolate chips. Mix until all chocolate chips are mixed throughout.
Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients.
Mix until all flour mixture is incorporated.
Pour into prepared pan and spread evenly.
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes until the center is set and the edges are separating from the sides.
Creaming the butter and sugar together is the key to moist, fudge brownies.
I used a greased 8 x 8 pan, you can also line with parchment paper.
I hope you love these as much as we do!
Please come back and let me know if you made them, I always love to hear from you!
Thanks for stopping by and come back soon!
