Hi! I created Ketology after struggling for years with hormonal changes and weight gain. As I got older, I found managing my weight and moods became more and more of a struggle. Within 3 months of switching to a ketogenic lifestyle tailored for my age, I not only shed 30 pounds of stubborn fat, but my mood improved, my focus sharpened and I have had nothing but positive effects! Learn more about my journey here.

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 and can be so delicious!

I made these 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 an to-die-for brownie mix that is delicious and takes minutes to whip up!
