What Can I substitute for Monkfruit?
As long as you are using the same variety, you can substitute Swerve in place of Monkfruit. I’ve included the brand conversions below to make sure that you use exchange the correct variety. I’ve had a couple of people ask if you can use powdered erythritol for the Lakanto Monkfruit Powdered. Yes, you can, but you’ll still need to use a sugar-free brown sugar substitute for the Lakanto Monkfruit Golden.
Lakanto Monkfruit Powdered = Swerve Confectioners
Lakanto Monkfruit Golden = Swerve Brown

I love the taste and flavor of butter in the very best keto brownies, but you could substitute coconut oil instead.
Tip: Make sure that your butter has cooled a bit before adding the eggs to the mixture.
When you add the dry ingredients to the batter, I find it mixes easier if I use a hand mixer. You’ll love how super easy these brownies are to make even if you aren’t a baker.
Is Baking Cocoa Keto Friendly?
Yes, baking cocoa or cocoa powder is unsweetened, so it fits perfectly into a keto lifestyle.
I can’t rave enough about how delicious these brownies taste. I love the added Lily’s sugar-free chocolate chips they give these keto brownies a fun and unique texture that is an added surprise of dark chocolate in every bite. You could also add pecans, walnuts, or stir in a little cream cheese for a little added flavor.
The batter will be very thick because coconut flour is absorbent. Once the low carb brownies begin to bake, all of the added oil and eggs will make the brownies mouthwatering soft. Also, if you are looking for gluten-free, all the ingredients that I used in my pantry made these brownies gluten-free, but you’ll want to check the exact ingredients that you use.
Can I Sub Almond Flour for Coconut Flour?
Yes! The conversion is 1/4 cup of coconut flour equals 1 cup of almond flour. Although it isn’t an exact science, this conversion generally works well in most recipes.
An 8 X 8 pan works best with this recipe. You can line the pan with parchment paper to keep the pan clean. I’m a little lazy like that.
In our family, there are a few that like the end pieces and those that prefer the middle. In my opinion, as long as I get a piece of these low carb brownies, I’m a happy camper, although end pieces are my very favorite.
With a baking time of only 25-28 minutes, these fudgy keto brownies will be an extra special keto treat. Did I mention that once you subtract the fiber and sugar alcohols, the carb count is only 1 net carb? Yes, these sugar-free brownies are worth it!
Toppings for Keto Brownies
Sometimes, adding a fun topping to your brownies make them extra delicious. One of the most simple toppings for these low carb brownies is a simple sprinkle of Lakanto powdered sweetener, which is the perfect balance and combination to these brownies. Another excellent option for a delicious topping is homemade keto-friendly whipped cream or a few berries. These Keto Brownies are best served straight out of the oven or rewarmed.
