Ingredients for the coconut flour brownies
To make the coconut flour brownies, you will need only eight ingredients that are very easy to find and you may already have them in your kitchen. Here are the low carb ingredients you’ll need:
- Coconut milk – Use the one in a can, that’s thick and creamy;
- 2 eggs – Make sure to use eggs at room temperature to avoid the avoid solidifying the batter. This will help cut the eggy taste.
- Cocoa powder – The best is to use unsweetened, high-quality cocoa powder for maximum chocolate flavor.
- Coconut Oil – If you are not a fan of the coconut taste, use refined coconut oil because it has a neutral taste.
- Coconut Flour – One of the best flours to use in keto baking. It is low in carbs, high in fiber. 1/4 cup of coconut flour has 6g net carbs and 10g of fiber. If you are on a paleo diet you can use coconut sugar or coconut nectar.
- 1/2 cup keto sweetener – I usually use erythritol or erythritol blends such as Swerve. Be careful if using xylitol as it is extremely toxic to dogs.
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking powder
HOW TO MAKE BROWNIES with coconut flour?
Here’s all you have to do to make perfect coconut flour low carb brownies each time:
- Melt the coconut oil in the microwave. Use refined coconut oil to reduce the coconut flavor.
- In a bowl using a mixer combine all the wet ingredients including the eggs (at room temperature) until frothy.
- In another bowl combine all the dry ingredients and add them into the wet ingredients. Stir well until it looks like a smooth brownie batter.
- Transfer the keto brownies batter into a well-greased pan or skillet and bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven.
- Let it cool for about 10 minutes before serving. Drizzle some melted sugar-free chocolate chips and serve it with a scoop of low carb ice cream or with whipped cream on top.
This recipe is easier than it sounds and even more delicious than it looks. Wonder no more and start baking your keto paleo brownie with coconut flour.
Keep the keto brownies in the refrigerator for up to one week, or you can freeze them and enjoy a keto dessert whenever you are craving one.
Can I use almond flour instead of the coconut flour?
I suggest not to substitute the coconut flour with almond flour in this recipe as I already have a perfect keto brownie recipe on my blog with almond flour. Swapping these two low carb flours will change the macros and the texture of the final dessert.
