Craving treats but trying to lay low on the carbs? These moist and delicious Blonde Low Carb Brownies with sugar-free chocolate chips are sure to become one of your favorite keto desserts.
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!

INGREDIENTS FOR 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 – This is a keto-friendly flour from 100% coconuts. It’s gluten-free and low-carb.
- Monkfruit Golden – This sugar substitute has no carbs and no calories but provides a sweet taste that rivals brown sugar.
- Lily’s Chocolate Chips – When making keto dishes, choose chocolate chips that do not have added sugar. These use dark cocoa and stevia.
- Unsweetened Shredded Coconut – Unsweetened pure coconut provides texture and flavor without additives or extra sugars.
- Xanthan Gum – Often used as a thickener for sauces and soups and as a stabilizer to prevent ingredients from separating.
Steps to Make Low Carb Brownies
Step 1: Add eggs, Monkfruit Golden, and cooled butter to a mixing bowl. Mix until the ingredients are well-blended.
Step 2: Add the heavy whipping cream, vanilla, coconut flour, salt, baking powder, and Xanthan Gum. Beat on high until it forms a well-mixed batter.
Step 3: Stir in the coconut, chocolate chips, and walnuts.
Step 4: Pour the batter into a greased 8×8 baking pan.
Step 5: Bake for 18 minutes at 350-degrees.
Ovens cook differently and can change baking times. As soon as they start to turn brown, remove them from the oven and use a toothpick to test for doneness. Cut into squares and serve warm.
Should I use coconut flour or almond flour?
As I’ve mentioned previously, I use Coconut Flour in my recipes because my daughter is allergic to almonds. Since both are keto-friendly, you can use either one. 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.
How can I make sure the blonde low carb brownies are soft?
It is tempting to overcook low carb brownies. This can make the inside dry and the outside crumbly. If you like your brownies soft, be sure to remove them from the oven when they are still slightly undercooked.
Can I add nuts to these keto-friendly brownies?
Yes. A lot of people like nuts in brownies, so why not? Adding some chopped pecans can give them a little bit of a crunch and additional flavor. Walnuts are also a good choice. If your family doesn’t have any problems eating nuts, you could add any variety.
How long can I store the low-carb brownies?
These easy keto brownies store in the fridge for about four days. They will keep at room temperature for about three days. However, you can freeze them. Place the cooled brownies on a baking sheet and place them in the freezer for about an hour. Then, transfer them to a freezer-safe bag. When you are ready to eat them, pop them in the toaster oven and enjoy the delicious flavor.
How do I keep the batter from becoming lumpy?
Make sure to beat the batter for a minute or two. It will take that long for the ingredients to combine well and become smooth.
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!
