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.

  1. In the video it says 1/4 cup cocoa powder. In the recipe written it says 1/2 cup. Which one is it?
    I made mine with the written recipe

  2. A friend of mine is deathly allergic to casein, is there a substitute I can use for the butter without ruining the consistency of these or would I just need to add in a bit of gelatin or something to keep the brownies properly emulsified?

    • Probably vege or coconut oil, I know a lot of box mix brownies use oil instead of butter would probably translate well to here.

      Probably any oil would work tbho.

  3. Everytime I make this, it just turns out so bitter. I tried with dutch processed cacao and just regular unsweetened cacao. Maybe I just have to go with less cacao ?

    • Hello there! What sweetener are you using? Some sweeteners turn out bitter when cooked (stevia for example). Top it with a cream cheese frosting. It should taste better!

  4. What kind of Dark Chocolate did you use? I can't find low carb dark chocolate anywhere! It's all at least 17carbs/ a piece, so that'd be alot for 2 oz!

  5. Unbelievable! The best keto dessert I have made yey! The batter was fabulous omg just like the real thing . I did add a little extra dark choc chopped up and handful of pecans. I know it alters the macros a little next one I want to just swirl almond butter in it
    Thank m you for a yummy recipe

  6. Just came out of the oven and have to say best brownies ever ! Turned out great but I had to bae 35 mins at e50 degrees for some reason.awesome

  7. These turned out amazing! I was looking for a good brownie recipe. The ones I’ve tried turn out like cake. I made another recipe right before this one today and threw it out. But This recipe is exactly what I was looking for. True to a regular brownie. Moist, fudgy and melts in your mouth. Thank you!!

  8. I know you said not to substitute coconut flour, but we were blessed with nut allergies. I used the coconut flour and added 2 tbsp of heavy cream to the batter. They turned out so good.

  9. Im super confused I looked up all the ingredient and added the net carbs and it came out to Flour being 8, Coco powder being 8 and the erythritol being 108 added all that up and divide by 16 and got 7.75 net carbs lol. What am i missing here?

  10. Hi, I'm getting ready to pour the melted butter and chocolate into the beaten eggs and I'm wondering if it has to cool a bit first? Or is it okay to add it hot to the eggs?

      • Thank you, that's what I thought, so I waited. They are so delicious! What a boost they gave me, too. I'd been feeling low energy and these picked me up so I could work out. Next, I'm trying your bread recipe! As much as I'm enjoying cloud bread, I need a change. Thank you so much, Ioana!

  11. I made these brownies and ate a couple of them already. They turned out really good and were better than the last recipe I tried. They are more like a real brownie and not as cakey as the last recipe I tried, although, I would like them to be even more chewy (I probably cooked a little too long;– 25 minutes I think) . But still,I will make these again for sure and thanks the recipe Ioana.

    • Hello Eric! I think that these keto brownies are addictive or something. When I make the brownies, they don't even get to cool down completely. Everyone in my family loves them! I am super happy you liked them!

  12. Hey, Ioana! I currently have the swerve granulated in my pantry. Will the brownies still turn out or should I buy the confectioners?

  13. This will be my first keto dessert recipe to try.Can I use Stevia in the raw as my sweetener? Will it make the brownies bitter? If so how much should I use?

    • From the feedback we've got you're using stevia it will turn out bitter! I, personally never tried stevia in baked goods. Stick to erythritol or monk fruit sweetener.

  14. Hiya,

    New to Keto but don't get along too well with dairy – would it be possible to substitute the butter for coconut oil?


    Alia 🙂

    • Hello Alia! I guess it should work well with coconut oil too, but I have never tried it. I think it would turn out slightly tasting like coconuts.

  15. Absolutely delicious, I did cook for 6 minutes longer, could be my oven. But loved them. Took them to a friend's and they friends husband said he would eat these over regular brownies.

  16. Delicious, I used stevia because I was craving something kind of sweet, I just started my Keto diet 5 days ago, but they didn’t turn bitter at all, I use kroger brand stevia

  17. Cannot wait to try these! The last recipe I used were cake like and they fell apart. Thanks for the recipe and I’ll let you know how they turn out!

    • Unfortunately, almond flour and coconut flour aren't 1:1 substituents. Coconut flour absorbs more liquid than almond flour, so you won't get fudgy brownies. I don't use stevia in the baked good, because it makes them bitter.

      • I picked up that same blend because I’m so used to using truvia and i didn’t realize it was mixed with cane sugar! Woops! Guess they will still be healthier than regular brownies? They’re still in the oven right now but they smell delicious!

        • They are still healthier and lower in carbs than regular brownies. If I remember correctly, Truvia with cane sugar has 4g in a serving (1 tsp) which is not that bad.

  18. BEST recipe ever! I’ve been Keto for years and this FINALLY is the brownie I’ve been searching for!!!!! Thank you!
    I did add a 1/4 cup chocolate chips into the batter, they give a little gooey pop of delight.
    Thank you for putting this recipe together!

  19. These brownies were a HIT! SO delicious! I do think the baking time should be modified. They were no where near done in 15 or even 20 minutes. It took about 32 minutes and they are JUST RIGHT. I did sub 2 oz nestle semi sweet chocolate chips for dark chocolate, the macros stayed the same. Cut the pan into 12ths and there are just 3 net carb per brownie! THANK YOU!

    • Hello Crystal. At the bottom of the post, you get the recipe card with all the ingredients, instructions, macros and even a video showing you how to make the keto brownies. You’ll need 3 eggs at room temperature.

  20. The butter I used pooled on the top of the brownies when I pulled them out of the oven. I had to dab it up with a paper towel. I used 12 tablespoons as directed. Have you heard of this happening before?

    • From what I know it’s not butter it’s the cocoa butter from the dark chocolate. This usually happens when you overheat the dark chocolate when making the batter.

    • Keep the brownies in an airtight container and they last for a week in the refrigerator. You can also freeze the brownies and eat when craving a chocolatey keto dessert.

  21. Hi! Do you use salted butter? If I’m using a throw away aluminum pan, how much time should I adjust the baking? Thank you so much!

  22. Excellent! I usually avoid chocolate Keto desserts because I don’t love dark chocolate and it always tastes bitter. These were really good. I added a teaspoon of vanilla. Thank you!!

  23. These tasted good but I ended up having to cook them for about 45 min to get the center to not be “giggly” like pumpkin pie,
    What did I do wrong?

  24. I have tried this recipe 4 times. The brownies always seemed a bit too cake like for me so the last time I used two eggs instead of three. This was perfect for making the texture more fusge-like and now I feel like I’m cheating!

  25. I’ve avoided sweet treats since trying to reduce my carb intake (not doing strict Keto), but I was having a friend come for dinner this evening, and she has coeliac disease, and I needed a gluten free desert. I made this recipe with home-made, gluten free baking powder, and was amazed at how they turned out. We had them with cream, and I honestly couldn’t tell them from the ones I used to make with flour, and loads of sugar. Thanks for sharing this really great recipe – they went down a storm! Just a couple of things I noted – as you say, the eggs really do need to be at room temperature. Mine were, but it was pretty cold today, and they made the mix much stiffer, which I had to spread into the tin, rather than pour, as in the video. I also had to cook them for about 50 minutes, as every time I tested them, the middle felt really soft, almost liquid. In the end I took them out of the oven, ready or not, as the edges had started to look like they might burn. Pleased to say, the brownies didn’t sink, and firmed up as they cooled. I popped them in the freezer for 20 minutes once cool, which made them much easier to cut. I would make these over regular brownies any day!

  26. Ok, so I’m not an experienced baker by any means and had no idea what to expect with cooking with powdered stevia. Let’s just say that you can NOT substitute stevia in the same amount as the recipe calls for with erythritol. Oh my it was so gross I had to spit it out! Next time I won’t experience, and I will follow the recipe verbatim.

  27. These are SO good! I added a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the mixture. Turned out so fudgy. Exactly what I was hoping for. They were gone the second they cooled off and were cut! Family loved them. Thank you for this recipe!

  28. Just made these and added unsweetened coconut flakes and a little chopped almonds. Almost didn't make it to the oven because the batter was delicious. The brownies turned out better than the batter! These are unbelievable!!!!
    Thanks so much for the recipe.

  29. Great recipe! I used Swerve granulated and they were delicious. One question though – you say less than 2 carbs per brownie but in the nutritional facts it says 4g per brownie. What’s accurate?

    • I am glad you liked the recipe, Christine! The nutrition facts show the total carbs and the text the net carbs. They are both correct. Just subtract the fiber from the total carbohydrates to find out the net carbs (carbs used by our bodies)

  30. Question: do you have to refrigerate these after they cool? Excited to try them but don’t want them to spoil overnight . Thanks in advance!

    • Hi there Katie. I keep them at room temperature overnight, if they last that long. Everyone in my family loves them. If you want to keep them for longer, refrigerate the keto brownies for up to a week.

  31. Omg!!!!! These are THE BEST by far. Like many others i have tried various keto brownies recipes and none is even close to this one!!!!! Its simple but yet so sophisticated. I think i am in love…well my boys are anyway… thanks a million!!!!!! I would give it a million starts if i could.

  32. Flavor was delicious. My were a little liquid in the middle so I cooked them longer but the brownies were so fluffy and airy and fell apart easily. I wonder if it was beaten too long. Oh will keep experimenting but good taste.

  33. I tried making these tonight and I followed the recipe exactly and it was a thick consistency like I just whipped heavy whipping cream what did I do wrong?
