Who said you can’t have deserts on keto?

Not me

There are few desserts I crave, I’m more of a salty girl than sweet, but I cannot turn down a chewy brownie. I love my brownies!

And I love peanut butter.

So, after trying a keto brownie recipe, I decided to marry peanut butter and brownies…and here we are.

I’ve taken these to functions and people were surprised at how good healthy food can actually taste. Plus this recipe is easy – because we all know that I don’t do complicated stuff.

For my first attempt at Keto Brownies, I tried this recipe.

I liked them okay, but found they were really greasy and crumbly, so I played with the recipe a bit.

I wanted more cakey-like brownies, so I cut the butter down a bit (but if you want more fudgey brownies, you can increase the butter or even add 1-2 TB of olive oil), I also added nut butter and walnuts for taste and texture.

In the interest of full-disclosure, because I couldn’t find unsweetened chocolate, the chocolate I used does have some sugar in it, but not very much.

After my first attempt at these brownies, I did test breath ketones and didn’t see any difference before or after in my breath ketones.

However, if you can get unsweetened chocolate, that is the best to use.

You’re going to need 2 bowls and 2 pots or a dutch boiler.

Keto Peanut Butter Brownies

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Cocoa Powder
  • 2 TB coconut flour
  • 3 eggs
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp liquid stevia
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 60 grams of unsweetened chocolate
  • 1/4 c  butter
  • 1/4 c  peanut butter

Instructions

In a bowl mix the cocoa powder and coconut flour

In a second bowl mix the eggs, liquid stevia, salt, and vanilla

With a hand blender, mix 3 minutes

In a dutch boiler melt the chocolate, butter and peanut butter (or as I did, boil water in a larger pot and place the ingredients in a smaller pot and place over the larger pot of boiling water).

Let the chocolate cool slightly and then fold egg mixture in to the melted chocolate mixture a little at a time alternating with the dry ingredients. 

For added texture (and healthy fats), fold in 1/8 cup of chopped walnuts

Turn into a lined loaf pan and bake at 180 for 20 minutes or until done.
