Brownie Bites ... made the low carb / keto way


Almond flour is the secret to these low carb / keto Brownie Bites. Also, because you use almond flour it means this recipe is gluten free, grain free and paleo. Almond flour is just almonds ground up into almond ‘meal.’ You can usually find it at most grocery stores and supermarkets, but it’s also easy and much cheaper to make homemade almond flour! Almonds are low in carbs, rich in fibre, and loaded with satiating dietary fats, so it just makes sense that almond flour is the key to making low carb brownie bites! 

It is because almond flour is a bit denser than traditional flours, it makes these low carb brownies so satisfying. But, they’ve still got a surprisingly light, airy, and cakey texture thanks to the fluffiness from the eggs! There are more eggs in this recipe than traditional brownie recipes because they’re needed to prevent your low carb brownies from crumbling. 

Ingredients
makes 24 bite size brownies
Dry:
¾ cup almond flour
3 Tbsp cocoa powder
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
Wet:
3 eggs
½ cup erythritol, to taste
1 tsp vanilla
¼ cup (grass fed) butter or coconut oil (melted)
Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
2. Mix dry ingredients in one bowl, and mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
3. Combine dry and wet mixtures.
4. Transfer to an 8×8-inch pan, or a brownie bites silicone mold.
5. Bake 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the kind of pan or mold you use, until a toothpick comes out clean.
6. Allow to cool, serve, and enjoy!

Hello there and thanks for your question.
You could use Stevia instead of erythritol.

All the best Jan

I do need to try these. Almond flour is so much healthier than white. There would be a little less guilt eating these.
