These easy keto brownies recipe is spot on. The brownies are very fudgy and super flavorful. They are also sugar free and gluten free. You will never know that they are not the real deal.
We are going to make these with unsweetened cocoa powder and unsweetened dark chocolate and add some espresso powder to the batter as well. This will make them rich in chocolate flavor. These are also made with almond flour and Monk fruit sweetener (you can use whatever sweetener you prefer).
The biggest recommendation I have for this recipe is that you be patient once you remove the brownies from the oven. Allow them to cool completely before you cut them. This will ensure that they are not cakey. I know it is hard to resist when your kitchen is smelling so incredibly good but do yourself a favor and wait. You will not be disappointed.

Easy Keto Brownies
Makes 16 brownies
10 tablespoons (142 grams) unsalted butter
2 oz. (4o grams) unsweetened dark chocolate
1 teaspoon (4 grams) vanilla extract
3 eggs at room temperature
1/2 cup (48 grams) almond flour
1/4 cup (25 grams) unsweetened, dark cocoa powder
3/4 cup sweetener (150 grams) – I use Monkfruit from Lakanto
1 tablespoon (6 grams) instant espresso powder
1/2 teaspoon (2 grams) baking powder
1/4 teaspoon (1.5 grams) salt
Heat your oven to 350F (175 C).
Line an 8×8 pan with two pieces of parchment paper, overlapping on the sides. Spray with some spray oil or oil lightly.
Melt the butter and dark chocolate in a bowl in the microwave or in a double boiler. If using the microwave, do it in 30 second increments and mix. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted and let it cool down.
Add the vanilla and the eggs into the melted chocolate and mix well.
Place the almond flour, cocoa powder, sweetener, espresso, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Mix well.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones and mix until incorporated. Do not over beat.
Pour the batter into the pan and spread out evenly with a spatula. Place in the oven and bake for 18 to 20 minutes. Check at 18 minutes and if a toothpick comes out clean. If it is not ready bake for another 2 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and place on a cooling rack. Allow the brownies to cool completely and cut into 16 equal size squares. Enjoy!
Store the brownies in a closed container in the fridge.
