Craving those treats but trying to lay low on the carbs? These Blonde Low Carb Brownies are certain to become your new baked best friend keto dessert!
Blonde Low Carb Brownies
It may be hard to say “no” to sweets once the three seasons of back to back holidays arrive. It seems like everyone you go; there is some kind of “dessert” just sitting there, calling your name.
It IS possible to have sweets here and there while following a keto lifestyle. The key is finding a keto sweet treat that is comparable to the sugar-filled desserts we used to enjoy. Even though I am not a great planner by nature, I know that it’s necessary to think ahead, especially when I will be around a lot of sweets that are not keto-friendly. If I know that I’m going to be hosting or attending a party, I make sure that I bake something that fits into our keto lifestyle so that we can enjoy the fun of socializing and eating a sweet treat with friends and family.
These Blonde Low Carb Brownies are a brand new keto dessert that I can already tell will become my “go-to” dessert. They are delicious, simple to make, and best of all, keto-friendly and low carb!

Specialty Ingredients used to Make Blonde Low Carb Brownies
There are ingredients used to make these Blonde Low Carb Brownies that you may not have in your pantry. I buy many of my keto specialty ingredients on Amazon so that I don’t have to look all over town for them.
- Coconut Flour – keto-friendly flour
- Monkfruit Golden – keto-friendly brown sugar substitute
- Lily’s Chocolate Chips
- Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
- Xanthan Gum – often used as a thickener for sauces and soups and as a stabilizer to prevent ingredients from separating
Coconut Flour vs. Almond Flour
As I’ve mentioned previously, I use Coconut Flour in my recipes because my daughter is allergic to almonds. If you’d like to use almond flour instead, please keep in mind that coconut flour and almond flour do not substitute 1:1. Almond flour requires 4x as much coconut flour.
You won’t believe how simple these Blonde Keto Brownies are to make. It’s as simple as adding all the ingredients, and letting the mixer do the hard part!
Make sure to beat the batter for a minute or two to so that all the ingredients are combined perfectly.
Stir in all the mix-ins to make it extra tasty. The Lily’s Chocolate Chips, unsweetened coconut, and walnuts are entirely customizable. If walnuts aren’t your cup of tea, you can substitute pecans or another tree nut instead. On that same note, if you don’t like coconut, it can be omitted. You can easily make these Blonde Low Carb Brownies suit your taste with a couple of simple adjustments.
Baking times vary from oven to oven. I have found that the best time to take them out of the oven is right when they start to turn brown. You can use a knife or toothpick to test doneness.
Sharing Blonde Sugar-Free Brownies
Once you bake these yummy brownies, you can bet that everyone is going to want to try a bite and see just how “different” brownies taste low carb. And why not? Let them taste that it’s possible to have a delicious dessert, without all the extra unneeded carbs! Keep in mind that these brownies are best served and enjoyed warm, so I always heat them right before sharing them with family and friends!
