KETO TRIPLE FUDGE BROWNIES
This is a version of www.sweetlaurel.com's keto brownie recipe which are absolutely amazing as is!! We added a extra ganache topping because that's what the brownies of our childhood dreams HAD to include and kind of still do...
1 cup nut butter of choice (almond, hazelnut, cashew or sunflower for a nut-free option)
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp crystalized sweetener (monk fruit, erythritol, xylitol, swerve)
2 tsp melted coconut oil, preferably unscented/refined
1 large egg, room temp
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 tbsp warm water
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp black cocoa powder or additional cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar free chocolate chips or chocolate chunks
CHOCOLATE GANACHE FROSTING
1/2 cup coconut cream or whipping cream
3/4 cup sugar free chocolate chips or chunks
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 350°F (not convection). Grease then line a 8x8 square baking pan with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl, with a hand held electric beater mix together nut butter, sweetener, melted coconut oil and egg. It will be thick. Then add warm water and vanilla extract, mix until smooth.
3. In a small bowl, measure out the dry ingredients then sift them into the large bowl on top of the wet ingredients, and mix well.
5. Fold in 1/2 cup chocolate chips or chunks. Then smooth batter into the prepared pan with a off set spatula. Bake for 15 minutes. They will seem slightly under done but don't over bake.
To make frosting:
1. In a small saucepan bring the cream and vanilla extract to a rolling simmer.
2. Remove from heat and add in the chocolate chips. Let sit for a few minutes then whisk until smooth and glossy.
3. Pour on top of warm brownies.
4. Chill frosted brownies for 1 hr or more before cutting and serving. Enjoy with a glass of almond milk :) Brownies can be kept at room temperature for up to 2 days or refrigerated for up to two weeks. With time erythritol may form crystals on top of the brownies. They are still totally good to eat but will be the most visually attractive on Day 1. By day 2 they may start to look a little spooky but will be just as delicious. ❤️
