Healthy Flourless Brownie Bites
I much prefer brownie bites over actual brownies when it comes to easy desserts. They are smaller, take much less time to bake, and frankly, easier to eat multiple servings of.
Luckily, these healthy flourless brownie bites ARE the kind of recipe you can eat multiple servings off. Made with NO flour, NO eggs, and No sugar, they are your guilt-free chocolate fix ready in under 30 minutes.
Not only are they paleo and vegan-friendly (no eggs and no flour!), they are also ketogenic diet friendly, which makes them naturally sugar-free and low carb.
The beauty of these healthy flourless brownie bites is that the ingredients can be easily substituted, based on what you have on hand and/or your dietary preferences.
The base recipe (as listed), fits all the dietary preferences listed- Ketogenic, paleo, vegan and gluten-free. However, the optional substitutions may or may not fit the same premises.
5 main ingredients are needed for the brownie bites-
- A nut or seed butter of choice
- A sticky sweetener of choice
- A mashed starch of choice
- Cocoa Powder
- Baking soda
The best keto nut butters
Nut butters are a great food group within the keto diet. They are all generally low in carbs, high in healthy fats and contain moderate amounts of protein. It’s often asked if peanut butter is suitable or okay on a ketogenic diet, and it certainly is!
Please note- If you use a crunchy/firm nut or seed butter, your flourless brownies will yield a slightly thicker and dense texture.
What sweeteners can I use for the keto diet?
You’ll need to use a monk fruit sweetened maple syrup. I haven’t tried this with a granulated sweetener, and I presume it will not yield fudgy brownies, but rather something denser.
Be wary that this healthy flourless brownie bites recipe is NOT overly sweet. For a sweetener flourless brownie bite, add some granulated sweetener of choice.
Can I eat sweet potato on a keto diet?
Unfortunately, sweet potatoes are not considered keto-friendly and are not recommended on a keto diet. Luckily, you have the option to use a similar starch, but one which is allowed- pumpkin!
While considered primarily carbs, pumpkin is full of fiber, and as such, their net carb count is very low- perfect for a ketogenic diet.
If you don’t follow a keto diet, you can substitute the pumpkin for sweet potato or unsweetened applesauce. Banana also works, but there is a very evident banana flavor.
- Preheat the oven to 350F/180C. Grease an 18-count mini muffin tray and set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl or high-speed blender, combine all your ingredients and mix until a smooth batter remains.
- Divide the brownie batter into the greased mini muffin tray. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out 'just' clean. Allow to cool in muffin tray for 10 minutes, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
