Seriously, who doesn’t like brownies? If you’ve been on a diet or a low-carb way of eating, usually brownies are a no-no, all that sugar and brown sugar and flour? Low carb? Bwahahahahahaha. Not going to  happen.
Wait.
What?
Low carb brownies?
How low?
TWO POINT FIVE CARBS LOW???
Is that for a crumb??
A WHOLE BROWNIE!

Here you go.

Ingredients

For the brownies:
1/2 cup melted
3/4 cup almond flour
1 Tbsp coconut flour
1/3 cup granulated Stevia
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 large eggs
1 egg yolk
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup 90% cacao dark chocolate, chopped

For the caramel:
3 Tbsp salted butter
1/3 cup granulated stevia
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 tsp xanthan gum

Extras on top:)
1/3 cup chopped walnuts

Brownies:
Combine the melted butter, almond flour, coconut flour, sweetener, vanilla extract, eggs (and yolk), cocoa powder, chopped chocolate in a medium bowl. Stir slowly by hand until fully combined – don’t beat or whip or you’ll end up with a much cakey-er texture. Pour into an 8×8 square pan. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for about 12-13 minutes, or until the center no longer jiggles. Cool.

To make the caramel:
Melt the butter and sweetener together in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly for about 2 minutes or until bubbling. Add the cream and, xanthan then whisk continually, 3-5 minutes over medium heat. It will get darker in color the longer you cook it. Remove from heat when your desired color is reached. Let it cool slightly to thicken.

Remove the brownies from the pan and peel off the parchment or foil. Add the cooled caramel to a small plastic ziplog baggie, then cut about 1/8 inch off of one of the bottom corners of the bag. Gently squeeze the caramel over your browniesand sprinkle your chopped nuts evenly over the top of the brownies. Then cut into 16 brownies

  1. What type of granulated stevia do you use for your recipes?

    1. I use Pure Via currently for the granulated and Now Foods for liquid. I’m still searching for the perfect granulated stevia. I’ve tried In the Raw as well as the Great Value brand, though I’ve heard great things about Swerve, I’ve yet to try it. Thanks for asking!

  2. […] almond butter (sorry, that just spoils the taste for me), or isn’t dry and crumbly. I have a brownie recipe I use with caramel and nuts that I enjoy, but the brownie part on its own just isn’t quite right. It’s still kinda […]
