Dark Chocolate Keto Brownies

Dark Chocolate Keto Brownies

This recipe is basically my dark chocolate espresso cookies, but poured into a brownie pan.  People kept asking though so I thought I’d best get it up here as it’s own thing.  The espresso is optional, the seed butter can be swapped out with any nut or seed butter for a twist, and the chips obviously are interchangeable.  Our favorite chips to use are the Lily’s Salted Caramel Baking Chips and the Chocolate Mint Chips.  The only Lily’s chips I have found that don’t work with the brownies are the White Chocolate and Butterscotch chips, as they have a lower and limited baking time, which is why they are only in my cookie recipe.  These are fudgy and my girls love them.  My son says they’re too dark, so I’ll have to work on that for him. I prefer them completely cooled and then chilled in the fridge.  The mouthfeel is far superior.

  • Sprinkle with some more baking chips.

Notes

I like to do these in a silicone brownie pan as well because the end result is just so pretty, but for expediency often do them in the Fat Daddio.  The baking times are slightly less in the silicone (12-15 minutes) but the overall experience and mouthfeel is better.  If you use the square pan, bake for 18-20 minutes and let them cool completely before eating.  I often chill them in the fridge afterward for a fudgy treat.  Left out they don't quite have the same chew as the cookies or the little mini squares.
