But do walnuts REALLY belong in a brownie?
Are brownies keto?
Brownies made with sugar and flour are definitely not keto. But this easy healthy recipe is made with almond flour, eggs, cocoa, sweetener and a few other simple ingredients, make this gluten-free and sugar-free brownie 100% keto.
Can we all just agree that brownies are life? And when you're living the keto lifestyle, you shouldn't have to give them up. Now with this delicious healthy chocolate walnut brownie recipe, you don't have to.
It's totally possible to have your dessert and eat it too! And once you make this moist and amazing recipe once, you won't even need to worry about trying to find another keto dessert recipe. It's seriously that good.
Do walnuts belong in a keto brownie?
Yes, I love walnuts in my healthy crunchy gooey brownies. You may disagree, so the walnuts are easy to omit from the recipe or substitute for your favourite nut (pecans would be delicious).
Finding a brownie recipe that offers that taste of chocolate with the crunch of nuts? Amazing, truly amazing. And you won't have to look any further than this low carb dessert! You literally get to add all the ingredients into one bowl and stir.
So not only are you getting a delicious keto dessert, but you also have less mess to deal with afterwards. That, my friends, is a total win-win!
Can you substitute other nuts?
You can! Just make certain that your choice of nuts follows along with your keto lifestyle before adding them in. Avoid cashews because they are very high carb compared to other nuts.
Some great choices could be pecans or macadamia nuts. Both would give great flavour and that wonderful adding texture and crunch.
How do you know if brownies are cooked?
This is where the old toothpick or knife trick comes into play.
Simply use a clean toothpick or clean knife and insert it down into the centre of the brownie pan. If either come up clean, the keto brownies are done baking.
If the toothpick or knife comes up with some brownie batter on it then that indicates that they need to cook for just a little bit longer.
Personally, I love to slightly undercook brownies. It keeps them moist and the centre soft and deliciously gooey.
Most people tend to overcook brownies to ensure all the raw egg is safe. But because I often eat raw egg in my homemade 1-minute mayonnaise (and I know you've eaten raw cookie dough before) then I tend to remove the baking dish from the oven slightly before the centre is cooked.
And while we're talking about delicious soft desserts, have you tried my new smooth and creamy keto chocolate lasagna yet? It's a super easy 4 layer dessert that's a no-bake recipe.
Can you make brownies dairy-free?
Yes, in fact, this dairy-free brownie recipe only has 1.9g net carbs. Instead of the traditional butter that goes into a brownie recipe, the simple recipe uses coconut oil instead.
You can even use the batter to make quick and easy cupcakes. These are perfect for portion contorl and easy lunch box fillers.
It's a simple blender recipe so throw everything together and pour the chocolate brownie batter into the preferred brownie tray or cupcake moulds.
