I have challenged myself to create a keto/low-carb brownie that was moist and remained moist after it was cooled. I have wasted a lot of ingredients on brownies that resembled dust or tasted like a chocolate cookie. Until…. this delightful experiment produced a yummy treat that I can finally be happy with.
This recipe is non-dairy. However, if you would prefer to use butter, my guess is that it would work. Let me know if you try it and it does.
I use three types of sweeteners in this recipe to produce the texture I was looking for, as well as the sweetness.
Hope you enjoy it!!
