These low carb brownies are the perfect healthy chocolatey treat. Even if you’re not following a keto or low carb lifestyle, everyone will devour these rich fudgy brownies. I regularly crave dessert and this recipe is my naughty little indulgence. I guarantee you will be making these irresistible brownies over and over again.
This recipe is super quick, easy, and only contains six ingredients. You will need eggs, oat flour, powdered monk fruit sweetener, butter, and cocoa powder. You can find Lankanto Monk Fruit on Amazon or use your favorite brand. I use monk fruit sweetener in most of my healthy dessert recipes because there is absolutely no aftertaste. Your family will never know these dreamy dark chocolate brownies are actually sugar free! If you really want rich decadent brownies, I recommend using Ghirardelli’s premium baking cocoa powder.
What makes these brownies low carb & keto friendly?
These brownies are low-carb, diabetic-friendly, and keto due to the oat flour and monk fruit sweetener. They will also not raise your blood glucose levels. Each serving is only 1 net carb.
How do you calculate net carbs?
To calculate net carbs per serving, you add the fiber and half the sugar alcohol per serving and then subtract that amount from the total amount of carbohydrates per serving. This recipe has 3g of fiber per serving and 8g of sugar alcohol per serving. Since the recipe has a total of 9g of carbohydrates, we simply divide 8 in half which gives us 4, plus 3 which gives us 7. Then subtract 9 minus 7 which gives us a total of 2 net carbs per serving.
How to make low carb brownies
First, you will need to get a small saucepan, medium bowl, a whisk, and an 8X8-inch baking pan. Begin by preheating your oven to 350F. Then, in a separate bowl add your cocoa powder and monk fruit sweetener. In a separate saucepan or in the microwave, melt your butter and then add it to the bowl with your cocoa powder and monk fruit sweetener. Stir ingredients together and once combined, add your eggs and oat flour. Whisk all of your ingredients together, being careful not to over whisk them.
Pour the mixture into a baking pan lined with parchment or buttered lightly and sparingly sprinkle large granular sea salt over the top. Then bake them for 17-18 minutes. Once finished, let your brownies cool and then cut into squares. Top your brownies with a few sprinkles of flaked sea salt (Maldon) or a crack of pink Himalayan sea salt to garnish and enjoy.
What is erythritol or sugar alcohol?
Erythritol is a natural sugar alcohol that comes from the fermentation of sugars. It is found in vegetables and fruit. This allows it to maintain its sweetness and is 80 percent as sweet as normal sugar. One of the most popular erythritol sweeteners is Monk Fruit Sweetener.
Living a healthy lifestyle does not mean giving up dessert and these fudgy dark chocolate and sea salt brownies are proof of that. These brownies are so delicious, you would never know they are low carb, keto friendly, and sugar free. If you’re a chocolate lover looking for healthy family recipes or want to impress at your next party, then this will become a favorite for your arsenal of recipes.
