Being healthy and fit for life is definitely a challenge sometimes, especially when you need to satisfy that sweet tooth. So I decided to go on a search for something that was good and definitely chocolaty. I tried a couple recipes and let me just tell you, they were they epic fails. So then I decided to post in one of the keto facebook groups to ask for help. I got several responses for so many options and recipes that appeared to be chocolaty and keto friendly. However, many of these recipes contained some of the same ingredients I had tried which made me very reluctant to try again. Oh but wat the Keto dessert gods sent me a private message which included the link to the recipe below. Funny thing is it had all the same ingredients I had already used, with the exception of two I hadn’t tried, SWERVE sweetener and Philadelphia Cream Cheese. In addition to those added ingredients, I added a little almond milk. I didn't use all the almond milk but I added enough to help it mix well and be a little creamier.
Below is the recipe I used. Click the link to get her recipe and many others I'm sure I will try at some point.
Keto Brownies by Lauren Rabadi
Lauren's recipe is for 8 servings. I divided my brownies up to be 16 servings. For me, this was better because they were cut at just the right size for me to pop in my mouth and keep it moving. The best thing about that is I could have one at lunch and at dinner without going over my carb allowance for the day.
After I pulled these babies out the oven I was very happy with the outcome. I had been on a search for something sweet and failed miserably a couple times before, but these were great. Now my version didn't look exactly like her version but they were very tasty and definitely satisfied that sweet tooth. This recipe will definitely be on my list of desserts for the holidays. If you are looking for something to satisfy that sweet tooth, this, in my opinion is by far the best recipe for that. Remember, Keto doesn't have to be boring.
