Blonde Low Carb Brownies – Chocolate Deliciousness
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. These are literally the perfect keto brownies!
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 “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 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 to 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, low carb, gluten-free, and sugar-free.

Ingredients for best keto 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 I don’t have to look all over town for them.
- eggs – work as a binder to hold these brownies together
- heavy whipping cream – adds fat and moisture to the batter
- butter – adds fat and moisture (you can also use coconut oil that is melted)
- Coconut Flour – keto-friendly flour
- Lakanto Monkfruit Golden – keto-friendly brown sugar substitute
- Lily’s Chocolate Chips– sugar-free keto-friendly chocolate chips
- Unsweetened Shredded Coconut – pure coconut without any sugar added
- Xanthan Gum – often used as a thickener for sauces and soups and as a stabilizer to prevent ingredients from separating
- vanilla extract – adds flavor
- salt and baking powder – helps to fluff the brownies when baking
- walnuts – adds fat and a crunchy texture
Can I sub other sweeteners?
Yes, Swerve Brown would work at the same measurement as would Besti Brown Monkfruit Sweetener with Allulose. I prefer not to use Stevia in baking as I find it to have a bitter aftertaste.
How many carbs are in low-carb brownies?
Based on cutting the brownies into 12 squares using this keto brownie recipe, they have 3 net carbs.
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 remember that coconut flour and almond flour do not substitute 1:1. Almond flour requires 4x as much coconut flour.
HOW TO MAKE BLONDE LOW CARB BROWNIES
Follow these easy steps to make these tasty keto-friendly brownies. You’re not going to find a recipe for easy keto brownies that is better than this!
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!
Step 1: Preheat the oven. Then, in a mixing bowl, add the eggs, Monkfruit Golden, and cooled butter to a bowl and beat well until combined.
Step 2: Next, add the heavy whipping cream, vanilla, coconut flour, salt, baking powder, and Xanthan Gum and beat on high until the batter is mixed together.
Tip: Make sure to beat the batter for a minute or two to combine all the ingredients.
Step 4: Stir in unsweetened coconut, Lily’s chips, and walnuts. Then, pour the batter into a baking pan and bake in the oven.
Variations to this recipe: 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.
These Blonde Low Carb Brownies are best served and enjoyed warm. They are even better with a dollop of fresh whipped cream.
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 different nuts to this recipe?
Yes. A lot of people like different kinds of nuts in brownies? Adding some chopped pecans can give them a little bit of a crunch and additional flavor. I used walnuts in the recipe as they remind me of my favorite blonde brownie recipe I used to make before we started eating low carb. If you prefer, you can always leave out the nuts entirely.
When I make this recipe for my oldest daughter, I make it without adding any nuts to the brownie batter.
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! Remember that these brownies are best served and enjoyed warm, so I always heat them right before sharing them with family and friends!
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 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.

Wow, this recipe deserves a slow clap. It was so delicious, it took everything in my power to not eat the whole pan 😀
Awesome!! It’s one of my favorites. Glad you like it, too.
Amazing and so delicious for those on Keto with a sweet tooth I will definitely make these again!!
Been reading about substitution of almond flour for coconut flour. Just curious if less eggs should be used. I read this:
Decrease the amount of liquid in the recipe by using one less egg for every 1/4 cup of coconut flour that the recipe initially called for. Just wondering what you thought.
I have personally never cooked with almond flour as my oldest daughter is severely allergic. The conversion may vary from recipe to recipe. It might take some experimenting.
I baked these for 24 minutes and took them out even though they still seemed soft. Now that they’re cooled, they’re literally still batter in the middle. I guess I’ll put them back in and hope they end up being edible. I did put them in an 8×6 glass dish, but I also didn’t use coconut and didn’t want them to be too thin. I can’t believe that would make this much of a difference.
An 8X6 would make a big difference because in baking time. Omitting the coconut isn’t a big deal since it is just an add-in.
Question I only have a 8×8 pan would I just cook it longer? My kids are dying to try these and we’ve already prepared it and just found out about not having a 9×9 pan. 🙁
Soooo good! Finally a brownie style bar that is not totally dry!! Definitely a favorite!!
I’m glad this is a favorite. I really like this one!
What is Xanthan gum
And where do i buy it?
It is a thickening agent. If you click Xanthan gum in the recipe card, it is linked to Amazon where you can purchase it.
Do u have to put the xanthan gum in?
You don’t. They might be a bit crumbly but will taste the same.
It was my first time making these and they are absolutely delicious. I omitted the coconut and used the coconut flour and it gave it just the right amount of coconut flavor. Better than the ones that I made before low carb. Thanks
That’s awesome when you make a dish low carb and it’s better than one with carbs. I really like these blonde brownies.
Can you use something besides monkfruit, none of my family cares for it because it is so sweet and they say it has an aftertaste ?
So easy and taste amazing! I use 1/2cup of Swerve Brown sugar instead of the Monkfruit and it turns out perfect every time.
Theses are the best! I Made them for my sister who isn’t doing keto or low carb and she LOVED THEM TOO!
Wow! That is fantastic.
VERY good recipe. So delicious! And yes – warm them up before you eat it. It is DEVINE!
Awesome! So glad you loved them. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment and rate the recipe.
OMG! This is my first try at a Keto sweet treat. They are DELICIOUS! I had to make 2 changes. I used Swerve as I didn’t have MonkFruit Golden and I had Hershey sugar free chocolate chips. These came out moist and so flavorful. Thank you!
Awesome! So glad you loved them.
Xanthan gum and other gums are not really healthy. You can use grass fed gelatin in its place.
Is the batter meant to be consistency of cookie dough? (Not a huge baker, so forgive me if this is a stupid question.)
The batter is thicker. Coconut flour is very absorbent. The longer it sits the thicker it will get too.
