- 2 Eggs
- 1/2 Preferred sugar substitute – in this recipe I use Monkfruit sugar
- 1/3 cup of cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1/2 almond flour
- 1/2 in-room temperature butter
- 1 cup walnuts/almonds/pecans (optional)
Recipe: 20 minutes ( 10 servings)
Start by preheating your oven to 350 F. After that, you will need to grease your metal, or glass container with coconut oil. If you don’t have any oil, you can use parchment paper. Both will work on your 8in pan.
In one separate container you will mix all the dry ingredients first; cocoa powder, flour, baking powder, monk fruit sugar and truly work to get them all mixed. A good tip is to sift dry your ingredients. You will notice the difference in the end product!
Once the mixture is ready, add the eggs, vanilla extract and butter. You will know when the mixture is ready when you don’t see any clumps or dry ingredients in your container. It will be roughly 5 minutes or less. You can use a spatula or a hand mixer. I find a spatula works better and also means less dishes to clean!
Now this yummy mixture is ready to be spread evenly into your pan and can be placed to bake in your oven for about 20 minutes depending what kind of brownie lover are you. We don’t judge whether you like gooey on the inside or firm texture. If you like them firm, you will be happy to know that storing them in the refrigerator will make them firmer and they will last up to 7 days if well wrapped. The choice is yours!

Once ready to enjoy them again, pop one in the microwave and I promise it will taste as if they just came out of the oven. If you choose to make this recipe, share your experience with us.
