I could write a whole love letter to these super fudgy keto brownies, but if I did, it would just give my beloved husband the evidence he needs that I have truly fallen off the deep end. Into the deep end of a fabulous gooey chocolatey batter though so life can’t be that bad, am I right? Yes, of course I am right.

Really, brownies are such a great DIY decadence. They are so rich, yet so easy to make, and while they can be dressed up to be fancy, you also can just grab a fork and go at it right out of the pan if things are really desperate.

The fact that these are keto brownies makes them even better. Even better then that, they are gluten-free brownies, and nut-free keto brownies, since they use coconut flour.

"All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt." — Charles M. Schulz

You can even freeze these Super Fudgy Keto Brownies and save them for later. Just in case you anticipate a time of crisis that only a fabulous brownie could resolve. And, of course, you may not be capable of making said brownies when that crisis hits. Truly, it’s good to be prepared. That’s right, make a double batch, and wrap up the second batch, without cutting it, in plastic wrap, then foil, and then in a freezer Ziploc just to make sure those precious irresistible chocolate pieces of perfection are safe from freezer burn. Then when the time comes, within three months, voila, your brownies will be there for you.

What about adding some homemade ice cream and chocolate sauce? Well, then we have some downright decadent awesomeness now don’t we? But honestly, you don’t have to – this brownie doesn’t need anything with it – but then again, when it comes to a brownie with some ice cream and chocolate sauce maybe we do actually need it?

A perfect keto brownie has to be rich and fudgy, not cakey.

As you can tell, I love a good brownie, but I’m picky too. A perfect keto brownie has to be rich and fudgy, not cakey. So I spent a bit of time perfecting my recipe, and many variations were made. Truly, the family suffered when this happened – not! Actually, it’s a real moment of quiet peace at home when all you had to say is “here, have a brownie”. Why? Because, people always have room for a brownie. And who doesn’t like a nice brownie? No one that you would be friends with. And what about a brownie that is low-carb, has no sugar, flour, or gluten but is downright delicious? No one with sense and taste is going to say no to that. Oh, and of course, it has to be a nut-free brownie.

And, if you really want to make your own ice cream, go to my recipe for homemade vanilla ice cream. You could even spoon bits of brownie into your ice cream then you have a whole different level of ice cream (I see another recipe coming soon, don’t you?).

Are you vegan? There is a vegan version for this Super Fudgy Keto Brownies recipe as well! The vegan version (coming soon) may not have that terrific butter flavour but the brownie will be softer… like melt in your mouth softer, making makes it equally delectable.

It took me about 25 minutes to get it in the oven, including the few minutes to let the chocolate cool after being melted with the butter. A couple of tricks: while you do want to beat the eggs and sugar, you don’t want to over beat them as the brownies will crack when you bake them, and sink a bit in the middle when they cool. I beat them in my stand mixer on 3 until the sweetener was well combined and the colour was a nice yellow, but no froth formed to really increase the volume of the eggs. For me that was 1 to 2 minutes.

If cracking does occur, don’t worry, you can cover it whipped cream, ice cream, and/or chocolate sauce and no one will know. Also, when you melt the butter and chocolate, you want to let them cool for a few minutes before adding them to the eggs, so the eggs don’t cook. If they are still hot when adding them, you want to make sure you add them very slowly to your eggs.

I also like to add Sunflower Lecithin to my keto brownies, it helps stabilize the fats, adding that shine to the top as well as improve shelf life. It’s not a must but is a great emulsifier when working with chocolate. Don’t have lecithin? Alternatively, you can whisk an egg white instead, and brush it on top before putting it in the oven. However, not a very thick layer, just a thin coating to get that crispy top. Also, if you don’t have espresso powder, instant coffee works as well, but double it. It won’t give a mocha flavour at all, only bring out the chocolate flavour. Yum!

Brownies are best when you bake them to be slightly underdone. They continue baking while cooling on a wire rack, so when testing if a few bits come off the toothpick, it’s perfectly done. If it comes out clean, it’s overdone. If it seems like the centre is still just unbaked batter, give it two to three minutes and test again.
