Ingredients In Keto Cookie Dough Frosted Brownies

  • Almond Flour – I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally) for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond flour can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.
  • Cocoa Powder – I use the Rodelle brand again from Costco. I find it to taste better than other brands!
  • Xanthan gum This is used to create a batter more similar to that of white flour. It helps give the brownies a chewier texture.
  • Cornstarch – This is completely optional. Cornstarch makes your brownies a bit more soft and silky. It does have 7g of carbs in a tablespoon but when spread throughout a recipe like this one it adds less than 1g of carbs to each brownie. If you leave it out, be sure to replace it with 2 extra tablespoons of almond flour.
  • Powdered Monkfruit Erythritol Sweetener  –   I use the SoNourished brand for both granular and powdered sweetener and love it! The powdered is the best option for no-bake goods and desserts where you want a very smooth final product. I used the powdered in this recipe as sometimes the granular can remain a tad “crunchy” in slightly undercooked/fudgier brownie recipes such as this one.
  • I use Krisda chocolate-chips in this recipe as they are just 2 NET carbs per tbsp.. but you can also use dark chocolate or lily’s chocolate-chips.
  • Sukrin Brown Sugar Sweetener – A great alternative to brown sugar! 

Tools I Used To Make Keto Cookie Dough Frosted Brownies

  • Low Carb Substitution Guide – This is totally optional but if you like my recipes, I now have a $5 guide available with all of the substitutions I use to create every recipe on my site. You can use this to convert old traditional recipes and create new keto recipes! You can purchase it here and/or read more if you are interested. 🙂 I appreciate your support so much guys!
  •  Nutritional Food Scale – AKA my best friend. This little buddy has been with me for over 4 years and never fails. Perfect measurements and only needs the batteries replaced maybe once a year!

Tips For Making Keto Cookie Dough Frosted Brownies

  • Make sure not to over-bake these brownies, they will continue to cook at room temperature
  • For the frosting, if you find it seizing up at all or not smooth and fluffy, just microwave it for 10-15s then beat again until smooth. 
  • If using Sukrin brown sugar sweetener in your recipe just know that the frosting may have a slight crunch to it since it is granular. If you want completely smooth frosting, just use all of a powdered sweetener or grind your sweetener in a food processor ahead of time.
  • When slicing the brownies, I'd recommend refrigerating them for a bit to make the process easier!
