These chocolate fudge brownies are really delicious! They taste just like the real thing. Non-keto friends and family will not be able to tell the difference.
With approximately only 1.5g net carbs per brownie, they can easily fit within your macros.
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.
The cooking time
The cooking time on these brownies can be varied depending upon how gooey you want them. You do need to give them at least 15 minutes to ensure that the egg is fully cooked, but anywhere between 15 to 20 minutes is fine.
The almond flour
Any form of almond flour or meal works well for these brownies. If you are using ground almonds rather than flour, you can give it a blitz in a food processor to make it finer.

Cooking the brownies
Line a baking tin with parchment/baking paper or use a non-stick baking tin. Heat oven to 350f/180c/gas mark 5
Heat a pan of water or use a microwave in increments. Put butter, sweetener, cocoa power, salt in a heatproof bowl
Heat over the stove and whisk it / take out of microwave in increments and mix each time. Keep doing this until the sweetener has melted. Erythritol doesn’t dissolve as much as xylitol.
Remove from heat. Add in the eggs and whisk to create a smooth mixture. If using erythritol and it seems too thick, add another egg.
Add the almond flour and whisk in.
Transfer the brownie mix to a the baking tin. If adding nuts you can add them at this stage. Bake for about 15 to 20minutes depending on how gooey you want them
