For the Brownies:
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup granulated erythritol or your preferred keto-friendly sweetener
- 2 large eggs
- 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- A pinch of salt
For the Frosting:
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- 3 tablespoons almond milk or coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 cups powdered erythritol or your preferred keto-friendly powdered sweetener
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a 9”x9” baking pan with parchment paper, allowing some overhang for easy removal.
- For the Brownie Batter: In a bowl, blend the melted butter and granulated erythritol until it’s well combined and slightly fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla extract, mixing until smooth.
- Gradually fold in the almond flour, coconut flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Ensure the batter has a consistent texture and color.
- Pour the keto brownie batter into the prepared baking dish and spread it evenly. Bake for about 20-25 minutes. The brownies are done when a knife or toothpick reveals a few moist crumbs upon insertion. Be careful not to overbake to achieve the perfect texture.
- While the brownies cool, prepare the keto-friendly frosting. In a bowl, combine softened butter, almond milk (or coconut milk), unsweetened cocoa powder, and powdered erythritol. Adjust the texture with more milk or powdered erythritol if needed.
- Apply the frosting to the slightly warm keto brownies, allowing it to meld seamlessly. Let it set.
