Keto Turtle Brownies

If you are looking for THICK, FUDGEY, GOOEY, RICH, DENSE BROWNIES without added sugar and carbs… then look no further then these Keto Turtle Brownies.

These are the BEST keto brownies I’ve ever made.keto turtle bro

When you think of brownies..these are exactly what you’d imagine. No cakey, light, dry brownies over here.

I use REAL chocolate along with cocoa powder in this recipe to create a rich chocolate flavour. IMG_9563

The caramel sauce and pecans are just a bonus!

Some of The Ingredients I’d like to Highlight:

  • Sukrin High Fibre Syrup – This is a low carb substitute for corn syrup, honey, regular syrup etc. It’s also referred to as IMO syrup. It’s great for giving baked goods a soft and gooey center with a slightly crisp crust. In my opinion, it’s what sets these brownies apart from ANY other keto brownies I’ve ever made (and trust me, I’ve made a LOT). If you don’t have it you can try adding another 2 tbsp of melted butter to your recipe instead but again, highly, highly recommend.
  • Monkfruit/Erythritol Granular Sweetener – This is my favourite sweetener! I’ve tried Truvia, Splenda, Swerve, Stevia, Stevia/Erythritol blend.. and I like them..yet I always come back to the Monkfruit/Erythritol combination. It’s truly the closest thing to real sugar and it comes in both a powdered and granular form!
  • Sukrin Brown Sugar Sweeter – This sweetener is fantastic if you are looking for a brown sugar substitute. It’s what makes these brownies extra fudgey and dense. It also imparts a great flavour in the caramel sauce. You don’t have to include this in the recipe and it can be subbed for regular sweetener but it’s just a nice bonus!
  • Xanthan Gum – If you are doing any kind of keto baking…YOU NEED THIS. It works to create a final product with a more traditional texture (aka a texture closer to baked goods made with white flour rather than almond flour!)
  • Blackstrap Molasses – This is a completely optional ingredient. But if you add 1 tsp of this to your caramel sauce, you’ll get a more traditional caramel colour and taste for minimal additional carbs!

Pro-Tips

  • Bake the brownies until ALMOST fully cooked, but whatever you do, do not over-bake them! Check a toothpick comes out “almost” clean and the middle has risen.
  • Make sure your wet ingredients (eggs, syrup) are at room temperature and your butter is completely melted and slightly cooled before blending for an even mix.
  • Melt your chocolate in intervals of 30s to avoid burning.
  • Freeze your brownies before slicing if you struggle with cutting them evenly.
  • These brownies are LARGE, you can easily get 32 smaller brownies out of this recipe.

Now let’s get to this epic recipe..
