Oh and did I mention this keto brownie recipe is also gluten-free? It’s beyond exciting. So exciting, that when I was developing this recipe I was compelled to share the goodness by porch dropping samples to neighbours –– and the verdict is they are really, really good!
Much like my Super Fudgy Gluten Free Keto Paleo Brownies, you can freeze these Keto Brownies and save them for later. Just in case you anticipate a time of crisis that only a fabulous brownie could resolve, like I don’t know, a global pandemic?
And, of course, you may not be capable of making said keto 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 ice cream? Well, then we have some downright decadent awesomeness now don’t we? You can go to my recipe for homemade vanilla ice cream and even spoon bits of brownie into your ice cream. You’d have a whole different level of ice cream if you did that (I see another recipe coming soon, don’t you?).
Honestly though. you don’t have to. These Keto Coconut Flour Brownies are stand alone wonders. It’s a bit different than my other brownie recipe, in that it isn’t quite as fudgy. That’s because with the sugar-free chocolate chips, and the ganache chocolate frosting, the keto brownie itself needed to be a little less rich in order to truly appreciate the triple chocolate combination.
I use a good quality dutch-process cocoa powder. Dutch processed cocoa powder is darker than natural cocoa powder and has reduced acidity. When baking using cocoa powder, your results may not be the same if you use a nature cocoa powder versus a dutch-processed one.
It took me about 25 minutes to get it my Keto Coconut Flour Brownies into the oven, including the few minutes to let the chocolate cool after being melted with the butter.
I use either a 9″ square pan or a quarter sheet pan that is 7″ x 11″ for my keto brownies. Either works well. My recipe uses allulose, as I find the best for this application. It’s hard to find in Canada, but I have allulose available in my store if you want to try it. If you use another sweetener, your baking time may be less. I line my baking pan with parchment and then lightly spray the parchment so the keto brownies come out easily.
As these keto coconut brownies cool, I make the ganache–that’s the decadent chocolate frosting. To note, it’s important to add the chocolate to the simmered cream that is away from heat, and then the sweetener. Not the other way round.
Once it’s done, you can frost it right away. Then, let it set for a few minutes. Once the frosting has set, cut your pieces. I like small pieces for portion control. So they are like half pieces. If the first piece isn’t enough, I can have another but sometimes just one will do. I cut 32 pieces from whole brownie.
And then … Yum!
Keto Brownies are best when you bake them to be slightly underdone. So, there may be a speck or two left on your cake tester and it may not have fully pulled away from the sides of the pan. However, if it seems like the centre is still just unbaked batter, give it two to three minutes and test again.

Yup, that’s me with my eyes closed while my hubby takes the picture. Totally me. I’m in my happy place doing one of my favourite things: on a hike in the Cape Breton Highlands.
I started my low-carb journey three years ago, for health reasons, determined to make a Low Carb, High Fat, Keto diet work for me as a lifestyle, without the exercise in deprivation with constant calls to the fun police.
I thought, as someone with a severe peanut/tree nut allergy, I am already a pro at adapting recipes to my nut-free existence, so adapting Keto to also be nut-free is something I can master. Truly, I love both the experimentation and the glee when I hit upon something fabulous and all with no sugar! It’s here where the idea was born for lafemmenikketo.com. I feel like a superhero baker and cook with a whisk in hand, whipping the carbs gone to make fabulous nut-free treats without the sugar. This, to me, is simply joyous. I hope you think so too!
