  • Pre-heat oven to 350*F.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together your almond flour, cocoa powder, arrowroot starch, espresso powder, xanthan gum, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  • In another larger bowl, whisk together your melted butter, eggs, vanilla extract and sweeteners until smooth. Set aside.
  • In a large microwavable bowl, melt your chocolate-chips and 1/2 tbsp butter in 30s increments, stirring each time until completely melted and smooth.
  • Pour your dry ingredients into the butter and egg mixture and stir until partially combined.
  • Add your melted chocolate and stir again until everything is combined and the batter becomes thick.
  • Stir in an extra 1/4 cup of chocolate chips (optional).
  • Line an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper and press your mixture evenly into the pan using a spatula or your hands to help.
  • Bake for 16-20min. The brownies will still be soft but will have risen slightly. Don't over-bake!
  • Let the brownies cool completely before lifting them from the pan. Slice into squares and serve! Enjoy The Best Low Carb Keto Brownies! (*Pro tip: these are great with a scoop of low carb ice cream or homemade sugar free whipped cream!)
