Keto Chocolate Chip Brownies

Stack of homemade chocolate chip brownies.

These chocolate fudge brownies are really delicious! They taste just like the real thing without the calories and carbs of regular brownies.

With approximately only 6g net carbs per brownie, they make for a much better alternative than regular brownies. Regular brownies can contain 30 to 40g carbs, sometimes even higher depending on toppings!

Tip: To reduce the carb content, swap the chocolate chips for nuts. Most of the carbs in the brownies comes from the sugar-free chocolate chip cookies!

Choosing the sweetener

I recommend using erythritol or xylitol for these brownies. If you have a doggy, do not use xylitol! It’s super toxic to them, so don’t even risk it. 

If using erythritol you can discount 100% of the carbs from the sweetener, however, if using xylitol, make sure to count 50%. 

Erythritol does not dissolve as well as xylitol during the heatnig stage but don’t worry, once baked this doesn’t matter. 

Choosing the almond flour

Any form of almond flour or meal (also known as ground) works well for these brownies. If you are using meal/ground almonds rather than flour, you can give it a blitz in a food processor to make it finer.

For the best results, selecting high-quality, sugar-free chocolate chips is essential. Depending on where you live, you have excellent options:

In the USA + Canada: Lakanto Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips are a go-to choice. They are sweetened with monk fruit, making them a great low-carb alternative that doesn’t compromise on taste. Lakanto is known for its keto-friendly products and these chocolate chips deliver a rich, sweet flavor perfect for cookies.

In the UK: Mrs Keto Chocolate Chips provide an equally satisfying option. These chips are crafted to suit keto diets and offer a smooth, chocolatey experience with no added sugars. Mrs Keto products are great for those on a low-carb and gluten-free lifestyles, making them ideal for keto baking.

Keto Brownies FAQ

To lower the carbs, consider using nuts instead of chocolate chips. Nuts add crunch and nutrition without significant carbs.

Coconut flour is much more absorbent, so you would need to adjust the amount significantly, typically using much less and adding more moisture to the recipe.

Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or refrigerate for up to a week. They can also be frozen for longer storage.

Yes, you can use a flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 2.5 tablespoons water) as a substitute for the egg.

Look for sugar-free options like Lakanto chocolate chips in the USA, or Mrs Keto in the UK.

If you have a nut allergy, you can substitute almond flour with either coconut flour, sunflower seed flour or seseme seed flour and omit any additional nuts. When changing flour you might need to increase the amount of butter and eggs to the recipe.
