Here is another keto inspired baking treat. It is an amazingly satisfying brownie, and my wife likes them even better than wheat-based ones. They are also very easy to bake.

Ingredients:

  • Almond Flour or Ground Almonds 1 1/2 cups
  • Ground Coconut 1/4 cup
  • Eggs 3 large
  • Cocoa Powder 3 heaped Tbs (or 4 to taste)
  • Stevia 4 Tbs
  • Baking Powder 1/2 tsp
  • Butter 1/2 cup (melted)
  • Salt pinch
  • Vanilla Essence 1/2 tsp
  • Xanthan Gum 1/4 tsp
  • Coconut Milk splash as needed

Method:

Preheat an oven to 180 C/ 350 F. In a large bowel add the ground nuts, coconut, and Stevia.  Mix well then add the remaining dry ingredients. In a small bowl mix the eggs, melted butter, and vanilla. Pour into the centre of the dry ingredients and mix well with a whisk of electric mixer. Add splashes of coconut milk as needed to make a thick batter/thin dough which can be spooned not poured.

Line a 6 to 8 inch baking pan with baking paper, and spoon the batter/dough in and spread it evenly with a spoon to fill the pan. Bake for 25 minutes and then check with a tooth pick or skewer.  Allow no more than 30 minutes as the nut flour will set even more while cooling.

Allow to cool at least a half hour before cutting into squares. The hold their form best if refrigerated after initial cooling.

Serve with thick cream.
