Delicious Low Sugar Almond Flour Brownies | Keto Treats

Delicious Low Sugar Almond Flour Brownies | Keto Treats

Because it is National Chocolate Day, I thought I should share this low sugar, Almond Flour Brownie recipe that I have been baking non-stop lately. I have to admit, this pregnancy has given me a bit of a sweet tooth, so I’m all about healthy treat options. And let’s just be real, pregnant or not, I love a little sweet treat with my morning coffee…

 

These brownies are soft, fluffy, and oh so delicious. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do! Keep reading for more.

 

Where are all my chocolate lovers out there?! Although it may be National Chocolate DAY, it is chocolate day practically every day in my house. I love having a little Dove Dark Chocolate square as a pick me up to get me through the afternoon, and do my best to hide my stash from the kiddos. Lol.

 

Brownies are one of my favorite baked goods, but I’m not a fan of refined sugars and excessive carbs, so I love this recipe as an alternative to the old fashioned way of making brownies. I don’t know about you, but I hate eating a brownie, or piece of cake and immediately feeling the need to brush my teeth afterward because there is so much sugar in whatever the treat may be… You don’t get any of that with this recipe!

 

 

 

Speaking of reducing sugar, I know you have heard it before from me, but I like to substitute coconut sugar for white/brown sugar 99.99 percent of the time (I really only use white sugar when making these sugar cookies). Here are some reasons to substitute coconut for the refined stuff: 

 

  • Non-GMO (GMO’s have been linked to all sorts of health issues, including infertility)
  • Rich in Vitamins and Minerals (including vitamin B, potassium, magnesium, zinc, iron, boron, sulfur, calcium, & copper)
  • Unrefined, so higher in antioxidants
  • Low Glycemic Index, so better glucose and insulin regulation

 

HERE IS THE RECIPE

 

You might want to make this one a double batch…
