Brownies are a favorite of pretty much everyone. Who doesn’t love a warm brownie with ice cream? Right?
This is a recipe I found on the back of a bag of Blue Diamond Almond Flour. It was not keto, but it looked good, so I decided to keto-fy it. Let me just say, YUM!
I am totally not one to write a huge story about my mother’s neighbor liked to make brownies before I give you the recipe. Please note that the ingredients used will change your macros, so these are based on the exact ingredients that I used.
If you add peanut butter, almond butter, nuts, nibs, caramel sauce or anything else, they will change with that as well. As a bonus, they will make a super yummy brownie! These were pretty moist right out of the oven. I baked them about 33 minutes. When I checked them at 30 minutes the toothpick was still wet.
The original recipe did not call for any salt, but I added a just a little bit, because I felt it could use it. You can certainly omit if you are watching your sodium, but for most people on keto, that is not a factor.
What are your favorite add ins for brownies?
