Super rich & fudgy keto brownies with only 2.6g net carbs per serving! They're gluten-free & delicious and with that net carb count almost carb free brownies!
Preheat your oven to 350°F/180°C.
Melt the chocolate together with the butter using a double boiler.
Remove the bowl from the heat once both the butter and chocolate have melted and slowly add the sifted erythritol to the chocolate mixture while continually stirring.
Set the chocolate mixture aside and let it cool down for approx. 10 minutes.
While the chocolate cools down, mix the almond flour and cocoa powder in a separate bowl.
Once the chocolate has cooled down enough*, add the eggs one by one and whisk until everything has combined fully.
* The chocolate shouldn't be completely cold, it's ok if the chocolate is still warm!
But the chocolate shouldn't be hot anymore because adding the eggs to hot chocolate might cause them to denature (essentially cook) and ruin the mixture.
Add the flour mixture to the chocolate mixture and mix until you just get a smooth dough.
Make sure to not overmix it, it's enough if everything seems sufficiently combined and you don't have huge chunks of flour left.
Add your brownie dough into an appropriate baking dish and bake for approx. 20 minutes.
The baking time may vary slightly from oven to oven and I would check the first time if the brownies are done after about 16-17 minutes.
You can do this by pricking into the center with a toothpick - if only a small amount of dough remains on the toothpick you're good to go!
Meaning, you shouldn't have huge chunks of liquid dough on your toothpick but it's ok if a small amount of brownie is sticking to your toothpick.
We're making fudgy brownies after all.
A thumb rule for brownies: it's better to take the brownies out of the oven slightly undercooked than overcooked.
While they cool down they will continue cooking slightly because of the heat that remains in the dough.
It's totally up to you if you want to eat them while they're still warm or once they are cold - both options are amazing.
My serving suggestion is to add a tbsp of whipped cream and a few pieces of sliced strawberries on top!
The keto brownie + whipped cream + strawberry is such a heavenly combination!
