Low Carb Moist Chocolate Keto Brownies

These are delicious keto chocolate brownies that are super moist and chocolaty. This recipe calls for cocoa powder and unsweetened chocolate so you know it is ultra chocolaty. These brownies are the very moist - thanks to the ricotta cheese which keep them soft and chewy. They are just like grandma used to make!

These low carb brownies are also nut free, as long as you use coconut flour to make these bars and you don’t have an allergy to coconut, you can safely consume these chocolate brownies.

Keto Chocolate

choczero chocolate chips ChocZero: Sweetened with monkfruit, ChocZero chocolate chips contain no sugar alcohols or artificial sweeteners. They are 50% chocolate so they are perfect for your keto chocolate baking.

Lily’s Chocolate - These chocolate chips are sweetened with erythritol and stevia. They don’t contain any sugar alcohols or artificial sweeteners either.

To increase the chocolatiness of this brownie recipe, unsweetened cocoa powder is used as well. Cacao powder will work in this recipe too. Either Hershey’s or Viva Naturals will work in this recipe.

The Ricotta Brownie

ricotta cheese container We owe all the moistness in these brownies to the ricotta cheese. When we use sugar substitutes, like erythritol and monk fruit, in keto recipes, or even alternatives to flour like coconut or almond flour, our baked goods tend to dry out faster than traditional counterparts. That’s because sugar and gluten hold moisture better than alternative sweeteners.

Using ricotta in this recipe helps to maintain the texture and moisture in these keto brownies. Ricotta does contain carbohydrates but they don’t add up to much when you portion the brownies out. This recipe yields 9 large brownies.

Keto Brownie Storage
