Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line an 8x8-inch baking pan with parchment paper, ensuring it covers both the bottom and the sides. This will make it easier to remove the brownies later.
Melt Butter and Chocolate: In a microwave-safe bowl or using a double boiler, combine the softened butter and dark chocolate. If using a microwave, heat in 10-15 second increments, stirring in between, until the mixture is smooth and well combined. Set it aside to cool slightly.
Prepare Dry Ingredients: In another bowl, whisk together the almond flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, granulated sweetener, and baking powder. Ensure that these dry ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
Beat the Eggs: In a large mixing bowl, crack the eggs and beat them using an electric mixer until they are well combined and slightly frothy.
Incorporate Butter and Chocolate Mixture: Gradually add the melted butter and chocolate mixture to the beaten eggs. Continue mixing until the ingredients are fully incorporated and the mixture is smooth.
Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients: Slowly add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet mixture. Use a spatula or mixer on low speed to combine until you achieve a brownie batter consistency. Make sure there are no lumps.
Transfer to Baking Pan: Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan. Use a spatula to evenly spread it out.
Bake: Place the baking pan in the preheated oven and bake for 22-25 minutes. Keep an eye on them, starting to check at the 20-minute mark. You want the center to be slightly moist when touched, but not raw.
Cool: Once the brownies are done, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. This helps them set.
Use a sharp knife to cut the brownies into 16 equal pieces. Carefully lift them out of the pan using the parchment paper. Enjoy your delicious low-carb brownies!
