Extra Moist Keto Brownies

These Keto Brownies are really the best of all the words you have always dreamed of. 

They are super moist, sweetened to perfection with that tiny hint of spiciness after your last piece melts in your mouth. 

And if you add our Homemade Keto Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips – Oh my.

Perfectly dense, these homemade Keto Chocolate Brownies adds to the taste and aroma of your morning cup of coffee. 

With just one bite you get it all. A perfect Coffee Cake without needing a real coffee next to it.

And you can serve it with the best ever Keto Cold Brew Coffee if they do insist. 

Extra Fudgy Keto Brownies

Have you ever wondered what makes brownies to be fudgy and how to achieve that? 

What makes any brownies fudgy is the fat they contain. More fat you add, the more fudginess and gooeyness you get. I have decided on this recipe to use plain butter we all have at home. And not a spoon, or quarter or half. Immediately the whole Block. 200g to be precise. 

So we have them double extra fudgy.

Another reason those Keto Brownies are super fudgy is chocolate. Pure Cocoa powder will never give you that fudginess, even if you add 2 blocks of butter.

Besti Sweetener

This time I have decided to experience for the first time with new Sweeteners Brand called Besti

This spectacular Brand has been developed by my dear friend Maya from WholesomeYum and I am so excited for all of the products they offer and will offer in the future. 

Since I always use a powder version in my baking I have for this recipe picked the Monk Fruit / Erythritol Powdered Sweetener and could not be happier. 

This Blend has given the brownies the exact sweetness I have been looking for without any strange aftertaste we are used to from some brands. 

And the best is, the blend is mixed to the point, where you use it 1 to 1 as normal sugar and therefore it is easy to mix with recipes you have.  

I would definitely suggest you try it as well.

Instant Pot as Double Boiler

One additional discovery I have made while making this superb Fudgy Spicy Keto Brownie.

It is not my invention, and I have seen it already a few times but never tried it. Melting chocolate with the Instant Pot is the best ever tip I can give you.

You not only have much less mess around your stove, but you can move your Instant Pot exactly where you need it to be. 

That is the most important if your working desk is not exactly right next to the stove. 

All you have to do is boil the water, switch the Instant Pot on saute and find a glass bowl that fits on top of the Instant Pot. You can have a look at the video for the exact steps I have made.

I do hope once you will try it yourself, you will fall in love as I did and you will never ever use your double boiler any other way.

Tabasco for Keto Brownies

The beautiful addition you would have not expected or guessed.

I love chocolates with a spicy touch. Especially the ones that have chili peppers in. 

And that made me think. 

I could either add the crushed chili directly into melted chocolate but I was not sure if that would spice up all of the brownies at the same rate. 

Also what stopped me, was that one piece not fully crushed, that will get onto your tongue unexpectedly as I usually find while eating my Bone Broth

Personally I do not mind that, but I did not want my daughter to experience that.

Then I thought of Tabasco.

Tabasco gives you the spiciness you choose and spreads it evenly all over the cake. 

And because Tabasco contains a bit of salt as well, I did not have to add another ingredient in.

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE THE BEST SPICY KETO BROWNIE RECIPE

First Step: Double Boiler

As a first step you have to melt your sugar-free dark chocolate together with butter in a double boiler. 

This is the first recipe I have used an Instant Pot as a double boiler and have been surprised how perfectly easy it is compared to the stove top.

You can see on the video exactly how I prepared it.

All you have to do is switch your Instant Pot to Sauté function and add boiling water. 

On top of Instant Pot, place a glass bowl which fits and let the bowl warm up a bit.

Second Step: Chocolate Melting

Once you see the water inside an Instant Pot boiling and your glass bowl has been warmed up, add sugar-free dark chocolate broken into smaller pieces together with butter. 

Keep melting until both chocolate and butter is fully incorporated and liquid. 

Once melted, switch off your Instant Pot and let the mixture cool down a little bit.

Third Step: Egg Whites

Using your kitchen machine start mixing the egg whites first.

Keep mixing until fully stiff and place aside for later.

Fourth Step: Yolks & Sweetener

If possible use another bowl where you mix your egg yolks together with sweetener of your choice.

As you see I have used Besti Brand which has got powdered Monk Fruit –  Erythritol mixture. Just in case you do not have this exact brand you can use sugar replacement you have available.

Fifth Step: Additional Ingredients

Once your egg yolks are fully mixed and incorporated  into the sugar sweetener start adding all other ingredients. 

Start with melted chocolate and pour very slowly while the egg yolks are mixing. Make sure the chocolate is not hot, otherwise the egg yolks and the whole mixture will crumble.

Keep adding almond flour baking powder, vanilla essence, cup of coffee and mix fully.

With regards to the coffee, you can use a Decaffeinated version as I did because of my daughter.

Sixth Step: Tabasco

Adding Tabasco into the mixture will give those fudgy keto brownies the best end aftertaste you can imagine. 

In this recipe I have added only 1 tablespoon of Tabasco which I believe is more than enough if you would like to serve those keto brownies for the kids. 

1 tablespoon will give you that slight spiciness at the end of the bite.

But if you do like spicy food and would like to add a bit more an additional tablespoon is perfect.

Seventh Step: Egg Whites

Once all of the ingredients are mixed fully, slowly add fluffy egg whites and fully mix in.

I normally add a few spoons and mix it and continue those steps until everything is fully incorporated.

Eighth Step: Pour and Bake

The last step is to pour the whole mixture onto your baking tray.

As you see, I have used a tray which could be sized as per my request but if you do have a full baking dish large enough please use this. 

Do not worry that the mixture is liquid it will harden a bit and therefore your brownies will stay super fudgy.

Tips and Tricks:

Eggs at a room temperature – keeping ex at the room temperature is advised since you were mixing the warm chocolate afterwards. 

Chocolate not so hot – Make sure the chocolate is not hot while pouring, otherwise your whole brownie mixture will crumble.

Decaf for kids – if you have kids in the house and are planning to serve them Those brownies make sure you use a decaffeinated coffee.

Add Tabasco for adults – if you’re going to serve those brownies only to the adults who like spicy food I would suggest adding one more tablespoon of Tabasco in.

Let Keto Brownies fully cool to set – try not to cut or move brownies before they’re fully cold. Those keto brownies need to set fully, otherwise, they will crumble while cutting.

 I would advise to place them in the fridge for an hour or so or keep them on the counter for several hours to make sure they’re fully set and cooled.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Can I use Coconut Flour instead of Almond Flour?

I have personally not tried baking those keto brownies with coconut flour. 
If you do not have any other choice and only have coconut flour at home, you can try and make this recipe, bearing in mind that coconut flour texture is completely different to an almond flour. 
Coconut flour is much more dryer and dense and therefore I would suggest to use only 1/4 of the amount of the almond flour.

What sweetener can you use for Keto Brownies?

As I have already mentioned I have used Besti sweetener for this recipe especially the powdered Monk Fruit – Erythritol mix. 
If you do not have this brand on hand that is not a problem at all. 
Use any of the sweeteners you have, making sure it is in a powdered version. 
I use only powdered sweeteners in all of my baking as I feel this will give me the best texture of any desserts I bake. 
If you do not have a powdered version an easy way is to use a coffee grinder.Keto Brownies stack on top of each other with Chilli

Can you use Cocoa instead of Chocolate for Keto Brownies?

You can use Cocoa instead of chocolate in this recipe bearing in mind that you would have to add much more sugar sweetener into the mixture while melting it together with butter. Bear in mind also, that not using chocolate for the recipe your brownies might not become as fudgy as you would like to.

How to store Keto Brownies?

These Fudgy Spicy Keto Brownies are best eaten fresh. 
They could also be left on the kitchen counter for 1 to 2 days or placed into the fridge in an airtight container for 3 to 4 days.Keto Chocolate Cake ready to be eaten
