Keto Brownies: Chewy, Dense and Low Carb Goodness

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 3g 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.

I also like to add chopped nuts, which are optional. My nut of choice is Brazil nuts, which are delicious and protein rich and loaded with selenium which has so many health benefits. A trace mineral that Brazil nuts pack in high quantities, Selenium, plays a crucial role in maintaining our overall health, particularly in supporting a healthy metabolism. Only one Brazil nut per day is all you need to get your daily requirement of selenium! It’s an essential component of various enzymes and proteins, known as selenoproteins, which are vital for diverse bodily processes including the regulation of thyroid function. The thyroid gland, a key regulator of metabolism, relies on selenium to produce hormones that dictate the speed of our metabolic processes. Adequate selenium intake ensures that the thyroid functions correctly, thereby maintaining a balanced metabolism. Additionally, selenium’s antioxidant properties are significant in protecting cells from oxidative stress and inflammation, which are factors in chronic diseases. It also bolsters the immune system, aiding in the body’s defense against infections and illnesses.

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!
