FAQs

Can I use a different sweetener?

yes, instead of using granulated sugar in this recipe you can easily swap it out for 1 cup of granulated monk fruit instead. this helps to make the dessert a little healthier and reduce the refined sugar making it a perfect low sugar option for everyone!

Do I have to use the chocolate chips?

Yes and no. some of the chocolate chips used in this recipe are melted down to help give a fudgier chocolate texture and taste in every square whereas the remaining chips are used to be scattered throughout the batter and added on top before baking. You will need the melted chocolate for the brownie batter but adding in the other chocolate chips that are scattered over this dessert is optional and can be omitted.

Is almond flour gluten free?

Yes, almond flour is a gluten free flour made from actual almond nuts and does not contain any form of gluten which means that this recipe is gluten free as a result.

Hands down one of the most chocolatey brownies we've ever tried!. Sweet, decadent, and moist inside. Lots of chocolate flavor and just a subtle hint of nuttiness from the almond flour.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • ¼ cup cacao powder
  • 1 ½ cup chocolate chips, divided (use sugar-free chocolate chips for keto diet)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar (can be replaced with 1 cup of granulated monk fruit)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup butter softened 
  • ¼ tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and prepare an 8’’ x 13’’ baking tray with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Combine softened butter with sugar, vanilla extract, and salt in a large bowl. Mix to achieve a creamy consistency.
  3. Melt in the microwave ½ cup of chocolate chips and fold it into the butter mixture.
  4. Add cacao powder and stir to combine. Then add one egg at a time until the three of them are incorporated. Next, add the almond flour and mix. Finally, fold in ¾ cup of the chocolate chips (leave ¼ apart to spread them on top of the brownie).
  5. Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking tray shake it to the sides to expand it evenly. Spread the remaining chocolate chips on top of the brownie.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the top is set and with some cracks. The toothpick test won’t work correctly on this one as the chocolate chips will melt on the inside, providing a confusing result. Usually, the brownie is ready once the center is not jiggly and the top has cracks.
  7. Let the brownie cool completely before unmolding, or it could break.
