Welcome to the strangest yet fudgy ist, most marvelous low-carb brownie recipe you’ll ever make.
 
Bold statement, I know.
 
Strange because you’ll think it’s total trash while you’re making it, but magically, it not only works out, but becomes a mega mouth-watering treat.
 
The batter is the weirdest most granulated not creamy smooth substance and when the brownies come out of the oven, they’re drowning in a pool of butter. Don’t freak out. It’s all apart of this beautiful process. The weirder it seems, the better they will turn out. Guarantee it.
 
If you follow a low-carb ketogenic diet, you’ll love these lumps.
 

Ingredients for Espresso Keto Brownies:

Butter/ghee: the moist maker. The fat plays a pivitol role in the flavor of these brownies, so select it wisely depending on your personal taste. Butter, ghee and coconut oil all work. Grass-fed butter is my preference!
 
Baking Chocolate: in order to keep this keto, you’ll need to use a 100% chocolate bar
Almond Flour: that substance that soaks up the deliciousness of the butter and ensures you can pick the thing up with your hand. Almond flour is a great source of fiber, magnesium and fat.
 
Eggs: the glue that holds it all together.
 
Instant Espresso Granules: that magical ingredient we add to make these taste extra special and unique. Honestly, if you don’t have instant espresso or instant coffee on hand, you can swap it out for cocoa powder and the world will keep on turning.
 
Vanilla extract: gives any baked good that wonderful warmth. Don’t skip it unless you have to!
 
Sea salt: sea salt is secretly mandatory in any sweet treat as far as I’m concerned. It is a flavor enhancer, makes the thing taste richer and also sweeter.
 
Optional add ins:
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Chocolate chips
  • Chopped nuts

Let’s make them now!

How to Make Espresso Keto Brownies:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a 9” x 5” loaf pan with parchment paper.
 
Place the chocolate and butter in a small saucepan and heat over medium. Stir until melted then remove from the heat. Don’t allow the mixture to come to a boil.
 
Stir in the flour, sweetener, vanilla extract, espresso granules and sea salt.
 
In a bowl, whisk up the eggs then add them to the brownie mixture and stir well. At this point, the batter will be very grainy and look weird. This is normal!
 
Transfer the very strange looking brownie batter to the lined loaf pan and smooth into an even layer. It will look oily…again – normal.
 
Bake on the center rack of the preheated oven 18-20 minutes.
 
The brownies will have a substantial layer of grease on top…this is normal. Allow the brownies to cool and the butter will soak back in.
 
Once completely cool, transfer the brownies to a cutting board and cut and serve. If desired, sprinkle with sugar-free confectioner’s sweetener and/or espresso granules.

    YUMMMMMY! I used regular almond flour and monk fruit sweetener. I only had 1 T espresso powder so I added 2 rounded Tb of Dark Roast instant coffee granules and it had a subtle coffee flavor that was good! I will definitely make these again!
