How To Make Keto Pumpkin Brownies

These keto brownies are so easy to make that I choose to prepare them anytime I have a sweet craving or some unexpected guests. So here is everything you have to do:

  1. Start by making the keto brownie base. Add the eggs into a mixing bowl and mix until frothy. Then add the melted chocolate, butter, and vanilla extract and mix until well combined.
  2. Now, you can add the rest of the ingredients and mix until a smooth batter is formed.
  3. Pour the brownie base into a prepared pan and set aside.
  4. Make the pumpkin layer. Add all the ingredients for the pumpkin layer into a mixing bowl and mix them until well combined and smooth.
  5. Add dollops of the pumpkin mixture over the brownie base and, using a skewer, swirl all over.
  6. Bake the pumpkin brownies in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until the top looks set.
  7. Remove them from the oven and let them cool on a cooling rack.

Frequently Asked Questions

How To Know When My Brownies Are Ready?

Insert a skewer into the center of the brownies to see if they are done. If the skewer is clean, they are done. If not, return them to the oven to continue cooking for two minutes, then check one more.

Is Pumpkin Keto-Friendly?

Sure, pumpkin is a great ingredient for someone following a keto diet, not only because it has fewer carbs than other fruits and vegetables and can be used to create many delicious recipes.

Can I Replace Almond Flour With Coconut Flour?

No, because coconut flour absorbs liquid extremely quickly compared to almond flour. So, if you use coconut flour instead of almond flour, you will end up with some dry brownies.
