Flourless Keto Brownies Recipe
That’s right, these nut-free keto brownies are completely flourless and need 6 ingredients. Ever since sharing multiple healthy flourless dessert recipes, the number 1 request has been for flourless keto brownies.
There are many keto brownie recipes online, but all seem to require either cream cheese, avocado, stevia or some other form of dairy. This recipe is completely dairy free and uses a natural granulated sweetener- It also needs NO avocado.
Let’s save that for toast, okay?
How do you make brownies without flour? It’s easy, and I will show you how below!
My favorite thing about baking brownies without flour is that it takes the texture of cakes or brownies from delicious to absolutely fudgy, gooey and moreish. Not only that, depending on what ingredients you use, they can be much healthier too.
Not only are these flourless brownies keto friendly, they are also paleo, grain-free, gluten-free and have a vegan option!
Is chocolate keto-friendly?
Chocolate and cocoa powder can certainly be part of a ketogenic diet. As long as you use a stevia-sweetened chocolate (like these baking chocolate chips or these chocolate bars) or 100% unsweetened baking chocolate, you’ll be fine.
Bonus? The 100% unsweetened baking chocolate used in these flourless brownies are also paleo and vegan-friendly!
Is arrowroot powder keto-friendly?
Technically, arrowroot powder wouldn’t be considered keto-friendly based purely on the macronutrient makeup.
However, when used in this recipe, the amount distributed for each serving is minimal, reducing the overall carb count significantly. As such, using arrowroot powder in these particular brownies DOES enable them to be keto-friendly.
Quick note- Not all arrowroot powder paleo compliant, so be sure to read the ingredient list. I used this brand.
Are tapioca and arrowroot the same?
Tapioca flour (or tapioca starch) and arrowroot are not the same, however, can generally be subbed for one another in recipes.
I did test these brownies out using both tapioca flour and arrowroot powder, and they both work well. Tapioca flour was a little gooier but still had a fudgy texture. Be wary that using tapioca flour/starch will not be keto-friendly.
Keto and sugar-free sweeteners
If you watched my Instagram stories, you’ll remember that I mentioned trying out several granulated sweeteners- Both keto-friendly and non-keto friendly.
For a paleo and vegan flourless brownies, you can use coconut palm sugar. This would be the preferred method, as it yields the perfect level of sweetness.
If sugar is no issue for you, standard table sugar, white sugar or brown sugar will all work.
