Following are frequently asked questions about the Keto Brownies:
Can you replace almond flour with coconut flour?
For this recipe and the sake of great texture, I don’t recommend using coconut flour. Coconut flour absorbs liquid very quickly and you may end up with dry keto brownies. However, I’ve got another great keto brownie recipe with coconut flour for you.
Why are My Keto Brownies Salty?
If your brownies end up salty is because you used salted butter. I recommend using unsalted butter because it will over powder the rest of the ingredients and make it incredibly salty.
How to Store Keto Chocolate Brownies?
Store fudgy keto brownies for up to one week in the refrigerator. Reheat the brownies into the microwave for a few seconds before serving. You can also freeze the brownies and eat when craving a chocolatey keto dessert. Frozen keto brownies can be stored for up to 6 months. Just thaw them before serving!
- Please see section on sweeteners for deets and possible substitutions (very important, as various sweeteners behave very differently here!). Just keep in mind that stevia doesn’t work (at all!) for these!
- If using powdered erythritol, and your batter ends up too thick, you may want to add an extra egg. Just be sure not to over-whisk, or your brownies could end up more cakey rather than fudgy.
- If measuring the cocoa with tablespoons, be mindful of how you scoop as you can end up with a lot more cocoa powder than needed. Drop the cocoa powder into the tablespoon and level it, rather than scooping it out of the bag with the tablespoon (which can lead to over-packed tablespoons!).
- Use eggs at room temp. Reason being that if your cocoa/butter mixture is not hot enough (and your eggs are very cold), they’ll solidify the butter and your batter will be too thick once you add in the almond flour (doesn’t affect the end results, just annoying to spoon rather than pour!).
- You can add a few nuts, like crushed almond or walnuts for a bit of extra crunchy texture.
