Come on, let's face it. The reason diets don't last very long is that most people can only deprive themselves of certain foods for so long. And the reason Keto IS SO SUSTAINABLE is because you DON'T deprive your body of the fats and richness that it so needs.
Brownies are a great way to tame your sweet tooth without the guilt of the traditional carb-loaded kind. And if you are a woman, that sweet tooth comes a knocking every 28 days.
1/2 cup Kerrygold butter, melted
2/3 cups Swerve sweetener
3 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup almond flour
1/3 cup baker's cocoa powder, unsweetened
1 tablespoon grassfed gelatin (I recommend this one)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup water
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips (I recommend this one)
Preheat the over for 350° and grease an 8x8 pan with coconut oil. Set it aside.
In a large bowl whisk together the first four ingredients — melted butter, sweetener, eggs and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine all the dry ingredients — almond flour, cocoa powder, gelatin, baking powder and salt.
Whisk together until combined, breaking up any clumps of flour. Gradually add the dry ingredients mixture to the wet ingredients. Add the water to thin out the mixture. Mix until combined.
Spread that batter in the prepared baking dish. Spread the extra chocolate over the top.
Bake 15-20 minutes, until the edges are set. The center may be a bit soft. Remove from the oven and cool completely before serving, about 15 minutes.
