It’s not hard to tell that I am a major lover of all things chocolate. The richness of dark chocolate captured my heart ions ago. When I went keto that love for chocolate didn’t diminish one single bit. 

This is why creating low-carb, keto-friendly recipes was kind of a must for this girl.

I needed recipes that were delicious but still kept me true to the keto diet. Sometimes the only thing that will knock out a chocolate craving is to go into my kitchen and begin experimenting.

These low-carb mocha brownies are a result of craving the sugar-filled mocha brownies that I used to make in my “pre-keto” days. I knew there had to be a way to get the same flavor and texture that I loved so much! 

Of course, the key to getting that fudgy, moist brownie turned out to be adding cream cheese to the batter. It’s also important to ever so slightly under-bake the brownies to make sure they are indeed fudgy.

How To Make Keto Mocha Brownies

This recipe calls for finely milled almond flour, which is measured and then sifted. This is key, and in fact, with the exception of a few recipes, I always recommend sifting nut flours when keto baking.  

That small extra step makes a world of difference to make sure that your baked goods have the right texture. 

You’ll also notice that this recipe for low-carb mocha brownies calls for a large number of eggs, this is to keep them super moist and fudgy. 

Making these sugar-free brownies is super simple and quick! You’ll start by making sure your eggs, butter, and cream cheese are all at room temperature, don’t skip this step!

In a large bowl, you’ll cream together the butter, cream cheese, and sugar substitute. Then you’ll add the eggs, one at a time, making sure to mix well between additions.

Then you’ll add in your sifted almond flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, and instant espresso powder. 

After you’ve mixed the batter well you can add in your mix-ins, I added chopped walnuts and sugar-free chocolate chips. Lastly, you’ll add your batter to a 12×12 baking pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

You’ll know the brownies are down when the top appears dry and an inserted toothpick comes out clean. You want to make sure the brownies haven’t set completely, this will make for a more fudgy brownie.

Best Sugar Substitutes For Keto Mocha Brownies

As far as choosing your sweetener, my top choice is a monk fruit/erythritol blend. My personal favorite is Lakanto’s brand. But you can also use Swerve an 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 much sweeter choice. 

I will also add that I personally find that chocolate tends to intensify the aftertaste of stevia.

Lastly, if you can’t easily find a more natural sugar substitute, you can also use Splenda for baking or a generic brand of the same. It will work with great success.

I know not everyone would agree with me here, and I respect that, but in my book, it’s still better than regular sugar.

Join Our Jesus And Keto Movement 

In case you don’t know, our family came to the keto diet looking at it from a Christian perspective. As believers, we live our entire lives supported by God’s grace.

So when the Holy Spirit led us to combine our Christian faith and the keto diet, we did so in hopes of finding lasting transformation.

To say we needed God’s intervention is putting it mildly. When we followed the Holy Spirit’s prompting, we got on the path to real transformation. 

Knowing firsthand the benefits of this decision, we have created a closed Christian group that is using the keto diet to transform their lives. 

I love how supportive and encouraging this group of believers is. It’s exciting to see how people are transforming their lives by combining this lifestyle with the Christian faith. 

We invite you to join our Private Facebook Group and see if it’s not the key you have been missing.
