Keto Brownies Coconut Flour

These coconut flour brownies are rich, moist, and flat-out decadent. It’s a healthy brownie recipe that will fool your taste buds yet is low in carbs, sugar-free, grain-free, and nut-free.

They are brownies that won’t disappoint.

It’s a good-for-you brownie that the entire family will love!

One quick glance at our recipe collection, and you’ll notice that we are huge fans of all things brownies. But can you really have too many low-carb, keto-friendly brownies? Nope, that’s what I say.

These delicious brownies are made entirely out of coconut flour and are a great option for those who have nut allergies but are able to enjoy coconut-based recipes.

If what you need is an almond flour-based brownie recipe, I recommend you try Michelle’s Keto Brownies, which I named after our daughter. 

When I created this recipe, I was on a quest for a keto flourless brownie and didn’t want the recipe to be overly complicated with a bunch of ingredients I rarely used.

Thankfully, I achieved this perfectly with this delicious low-carb option.

Keto Brownies (Coconut Flour)

Making brownies with coconut flour is not only doable, but it also makes sense on a number of levels. You see, coconut flour is less inflammatory and, therefore, makes sense for anyone trying to reduce foods that cause inflammation.

As an added bonus, coconut flour brownies have fewer carbs than, say, an almond flour brownie. And if that’s not enough of a reason, coconut flour is also less expensive than nut flour varieties. 

If you are wondering if a coconut flour brownie recipe will have too much of a coconut flavor, I’ve got great news for you because these brownies have such a dense chocolate flavor that it’s all you taste.

This recipe uses not one, not two, but three types of chocolate for one fabulous sugar-free brownie.

Keto Coconut Flour Brownies

Although I have several delicious brownies made with almond flour, people often ask if they can be made with coconut flour.  It’s a must for those who need their options to be nut-free or are simply avoiding almond flour.

However, since almond flour cannot be swapped 1:1 for coconut flour, it can be tricky to convert an existing recipe. I would hate for you to attempt to do so and fail.

I mean, isn’t that why I am here? Instead, I did all the guesswork for you and created a fail-proof coconut flour brownie you can embrace.

If you are new to baking with alternative flours, I recommend you visit my keto baking tips so you can better understand the ins and outs of this sometimes complex form of baking. 

How To Make Keto Brownies With Coconut Flour

The following are the ingredients and some tips on how to best make this recipe. Note that the full recipe card is at the bottom of the post. 

Ingredients

Making these low-carb brownies is pretty straightforward. You will be melting the butter along with the baking chocolate and sugar-free chocolate chips.

For the best results, I recommend you use a double boiler. You can, however, use a microwave at the lowest setting using 10-second increments. Just be sure to stir each time.

The quality of the ingredients matters. That’s why I recommend you use Anthony’s coconut flour.

I find it to have the finest texture and the freshest flavor. I always get consistent results with this brand, and it has a very mild coconut flavor.

It’s important to allow the butter-chocolate mixture to cool before proceeding to add the eggs. Otherwise, you run the risk of scrambling the eggs.

And no one—I mean no one—wants scrambled eggs in their brownies. Right?

As far as which sugar substitute you can use in this recipe, I have a couple of suggestions.

Sugar-Substitutes

My top choice is a monk fruit/erythritol blend. My personal favorite is Lakanto’s brandBut you can also use Swervean erythritol sugar substitute. 

You could also use the stevia and erythritol-based brand Pyure for most of my baked goods. However, if using Pyure, you will want to use half the amount called for in this recipe since it’s a doubly sweet choice. 

I will also add that I am not a fan of using stevia in chocolate-based recipes; in my opinion, it intensifies the aftertaste of stevia.

But if stevia is your preferred choice, feel free to use the Pyure brand.

My failed attempts when I first went keto are what caused me to be very intentional with my Keto Baking recipes, like these brownies.

I threw away so many ingredients in the beginning, and I never want anyone to be so frustrated that they give up on the diet before they can see long-lasting results. 

Even though those early days were not fun, the fact that I stayed the course has made this journey very rewarding.

Besides, if I had quit at the first sign of struggle, I would not have had the opportunity to engage with you all.

I sure hope you will give these keto coconut flour brownies a try. Once you do, make sure you remember to tag us on Instagram and Facebook. It encourages this girl to keep sharing and perfecting her recipes.

Where would one find a 10x10 pan, I can’t seem to find one or was this an error on the size pan? I’ve seen a 9X9 pan so how would you determine how much more time to allow to bake?

Hi Lydia, you could use a smaller pan and bake 5 minutes longer or a larger pan and bake 5 minutes less. Here is a link to Amazon for a 10x10 pan if you want to go this route.

I know this was in 2016 and we're in 2022 haha i hope i still get a response though.. would adding milk be helpful for moisutre in end product.. this will be my 4th keto brownie recipe i try with coconut flour. The other 3 were veey dry and not as sweet as normal brownies.. i am going to try this recipe tonight but i am veey nervous about the texture and chewy/moistness of end product. Please let me know ways to get around that?

Thanks Tara

Hi Tara, I always do my best to answer the comments. I'm here to assist you. My guess is that you may be overcooking your brownies. It's key to under cook just a tad and let them sit as they will continue to cook as they cool. This will ensure a moist keto brownie for you.

They are in the oven right now! If the batter is any indication of the final product, this recipe is a keeper!! I added a cup of chopped walnuts because…well…chocolate and nuts. Nothing better. I know this will affect net card outcome so I will account for that. They smell like what I imagine heaven will smell like.

My batter ended up more like a dough. Did I do something wrong? I did start out using a hand mixer and switched to my stand mixer after almost burning out the motor of the hand mixer. The batter/dough was so stiff. The texture of the finished brownie is more like a fudge-brownie hybrid. It tastes great but feels off.

Hi Emiko, perhaps you overbeat the batter. There is no need to do so. You should be using the lowest setting of your mixer.
