A certified nutritionist and self-taught chef with a love for entertaining and experimenting with food, Lolita Carrico created Ketology after struggling for years with her own hormonal changes and weight gain. After having two children, she found that managing her weight and moods became more and more of a struggle. After researching the ketogenic diet thoroughly and understanding the science and nutritional aspects, she began her keto journey in 2018. Within three months, she shed 25 pounds and her mood improved, focus sharpened and her energy was through the roof. Four years later, she has maintained a 65-pound weight loss and has learned to intuitively follow a balanced keto lifestyle without sacrificing a thing!

Brownies a la mode – a warm, gooey brownie with a scoop of ice cream on it – is a classic dessert that typically seems too decadent to be enjoyed on any diet or keto lifestyle, however I’m here to tell you the rich chocolate brownies are more than possible on keto. This keto brownie recipe yield delicious, chocolate-y squares of goodness and at 5g of net carbs each, are practically guilt-free!

I made this keto brownie recipe a few weeks ago and topped them with a scoop of Halo Top’s keto ice cream for myself and some guests – no one could believe they were low carb and sugar free! Of course, we can’t make indulging in desserts like this a daily habit…it’s still a treat however you can satisfy that sweet tooth or craving without the guilt! Don’t balk at the avocado in this recipe, it not only adds healthy fats but also adds a richness and creamy quality that is essential for dense, chewy keto brownies.

If you aren’t into baking, Swerve has a to-die-for brownie mix that is delicious and takes minutes to whip up OR FatSnax brownies have less than 1g of net carbs each, are already made and delicious!
