I make brownies with almond flour regularly, but I decided to branch out to coconut flour. I am so glad I did! These were moist and delicious. I microwave them for about 20 seconds, top with some whipped cream and I am in keto heaven! The ones in the pic I added chopped walnuts to the top before baking then poured over this glaze (Minus the lemon): https://noreensketokitchen.com/2018/11/17/keto-lemon-crumb-cake/
It was really tasty. Next time I am thinking of adding some unsweetened coconut flakes to the glaze to make it “german chocolate cake” like…… YUM!!
Keto Coconut Flour Brownies by Noreen’s Keto Kitchen!
- 3 Large Eggs, at room temperature
- 1/2 Cup of Coconut flour
- 3/4 Cup of Swerve/Erythritol/Monkfruit (Low Carb Sweetener),
- 1/4 Cup of unsweetened Dark Cocoa Powder
- 12 Tablespoons of Butter, melted
- 2 Ounces of UNSWEETENED Baking Chocolate
- 5 Tablespoons of Full Fat Sour Cream
- 1 teaspoon of Baking Powder
- 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
- Preheat the oven to 350F degrees.
- Line a 8×8 baking dish or a loaf cake tin with parchment paper.
- In a microwaveable bowl add the butter and the chopped unsweetened baking chocolate.
- Microwave for 30 seconds, stir and back in the microwave in 30 seconds intervals until butter and chocolate are completely melted. You can also let the mixture melt on a double boiler if you don’t use a microwave
- Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients: coconut flour, low carb sweetener, cocoa powder and baking powder.
- In a big bowl, add the sour cream, vanilla extract and then crack the 3 eggs and beat them with an electric mixer for at least a minute or two.
- Add the melted butter and chocolate mixture to the eggs and continue mixing for about a minute
- Slowly stir in all the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon or spatula until you get that delicious brownie batter consistency.
- Pour brownie batter into parchment lined loaf tin.
- Bake for 15-25 minutes until firm and the top is cooked. A knife inserted into the center should come out mostly clean, if there is a lot of wet batter, then bake another 5 minutes and knife test again.
- *** The baking time really does vary drastically from oven to oven, or batch to batch, so I give them a check at the 15 minute mark. A clean knife inserted into the middle should have a little bit of wet batter but not be totally covered in batter. If it’s not done, bake another 5 minutes and test again with the knife.***
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
- Gently pull the cake out of the loaf tin using the sides of the parchment paper, remove parchment paper and place loaf on cooling rack.
- Serve with a glass of unsweetened almond/coconut milk, tea or coffee.
- Cover the cake and store in the fridge.
***Some Handy Dandy Tips from Noreen’s Keto Kitchen***
*** I would NOT recommend using Stevia in this recipe. I have tried baking with Stevia several times and it just doesn’t deliver like Swerve or Monkfruit, and it tends to have a bit of an aftertaste***
