Ingredients

Brownie Base

Cookie Dough Frosting

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350*F.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together your almond flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, xanthan gum and salt. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, beat together your eggs, butter, vanilla and sweetener until smooth. Set aside.
  • In a large microwavable bowl, melt your chocolate-chips and coconut oil or butter in 30s increments, stirring each time until smooth.
  • Pour your butter and egg mixture into the chocolate-chips and stir until well-incorporated and smooth.
  • Next stir in your dry ingredients and mix until a thick batter forms. Fold in your additional chocolate-chips.
  • To assemble, line a 9x13 inch dish with lightly greased or oiled parchment paper.
  • Use a spatula or your hands to press the brownie mixture into the bottom of the pan, forming an even layer.
  • Bake the brownies for 25-30min or until the edges start to crack slightly ( a toothpick is not the best way to tell if these are done as they will cook more as they cool).
  • Let the brownies cool for ~1 hour. Meanwhile you can make the frosting.
  • To make the frosting, beat together the butter, sweeteners, vanilla extract and almond flour until a thick batter forms. Slowly add heavy cream while beating the mixture until everything in incorporated and the frosting is light and fluffy.
  • Stir your chocolate chips into the frosting as well then remove your brownies from their pan using the parchment paper to lift them out.
  • Using a spatula spread the frosting evenly over the brownies. Slice and serve warm or store them in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container between layers of parchment paper for a future snack! Enjoy your Keto Cookie Dough Frosted Brownies. *I actually tend to refrigerate mine for a bit before slicing so they slice cleaner, but these are great warm if you don't mind a slight mess, haha* 

Notes

  • 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.
