I don’t like sweet things usually, but man these keto brownies were the bomb. They were so good I had to share them at work with co-workers.
I’m not your average ordinary sweet lover. I actually prefer to eat salty or savory foods. But, I wanted to try my hand at making at least one sweet dish and making it keto friendly so I tried brownies.
Man, I was so shocked at how well these came out if I’m being honest. Betty Crocker, I am not, but these things were so delicious and you couldn’t tell they were keto. They’re rich, they’re chocolate-y and they’re kid-approved!
Oh, and they’re husband approved, and that’s saying something for me!
The Best Fudgy Keto Brownies You’ll Ever Find
I’m thankful these came out as amazing as they did because I’m not really a baker or sweet maker.
Basically, I can make a mug cake and that’s pretty much the extent of my baking unless I follow a recipe or I’m cooking with my grandmother.
She’s the baker and a fabulous cook. I learned everything I know from her, but baking escaped me in that regard.
Unless we’re talking about bread. I can make some damn good bread.
Brownies though… that’s different.
These ended up being surprisingly easy to make and my kids enjoyed helping me. They kept trying to eat the brownie batter and I kept having to swat them away.
They’re so used to seeing their dad eat biscuit dough that they just think you can dip into anything and try it before it’s cooked.
Warning: Don’t over bake the brownies… they’ll get super dry.
Now, brownies are definitely different than cakes. You can’t really stick a toothpick in to see if it’s done. I mean you can, but it’s different.
You want to make sure it’s gooey but not mushy gooey. There’s a fine line and I haven’t really figured out how to not cross it yet. I’ll report back when I figure it out :).
Best Chocolate for Fudgy Brownies
These brownies are brought to you by Choc Zero 50% Dark Chocolate Squares and the Milk Chocolate Squares.
I smashed 4 of each kind into little chunks and used half in the mix and sprinkled the other half on top.
The chocolate made these brownies super decadent and so amazing.
To make these brownies even better you should totally grab the Choc Zero Chocolate Syrup while you’re at it. Drizzled on top of some whipped cream over the brownies and it is the best.
If you top these with some sugar-free heavy whipping cream (the kind you get in the can) and some Choc Zero Chocolate Syrup you’ll be set for a chocolate overload.
Not in a bad way though. More like chocolate heaven!
Please tag me on IG if you make these 🙂 @balanceandlift so I can see you’re amazing creations.
