If you are a fan of brownies, then you’re going to love Michelle’s rich keto brownies. It was inspired by our daughter’s favorite high carb brownie recipe.
When your child tells you that her favorite brownie is a sugar-laden one, you do the right thing and transform it to be keto-friendly. After all, this is what her momma does best.
Transforming traditional high carb recipes into low carb keto yumminess has become a passion for me. It was my Michelle’s craving that birthed these rich keto brownies.
Not wanting to disappoint her, I said a prayer and asked my Jesus for the download. Do you think I ‘m kidding here? Well, you really need to know that this is my secret to coming up with recipes that you all will enjoy.
My Jesus gets all the credit for any success you can point to in this girl’s life.
I already have several brownie recipes on the blog that are quite loved around here, like my Low Carb Mocha Blackout Brownie, Low Carb Brownie, Red Velvet Swirled Brownies, Keto Cream Cheese Swirled Brownies, Keto Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies.
AND….my Keto Brownie Cupcakes.
And if that’s not enough I have a complete list of Keto Cookies that as a fan of cookies I encourage you to also visit.
Rich Keto Brownies
However, since Michelle kept raving about this recipe I was intrigued, and maybe even a little jealous.
Well, I am happy to report that once I converted the recipe, Michelle’s Rich Keto Brownies turned out to be the darkest richest keto brownies I’ve ever had.
Which simply means you’re going to LOVE this rich keto brownie recipe.
Michelle’s richest darkest chocolate keto brownies were born out of a need to keep my daughter from talking more about someone else’s brownies. LOL, not really but a little competition never hurt anyone.
The recipe Michelle couldn’t stop mentioning was this Simple Brownie Recipe. I think the magic behind these traditional brownies, is that you combine the sugar, butter, and cocoa powder over a double boiler.
Once the mixture is allowed to cool, the eggs and flour are added. Since I love providing my readers with simple low carb keto recipes, I knew it was a challenge I could not back down from.
Michelle’s rich keto brownies actually passed as a regular brownie and fooled even our picky teenage son.
Matthew couldn’t believe these were not regular brownies. That my friend is a major win in this girl’s book. Hopefully, you too will agree.
Converting her favorite recipe to a healthy low carb keto version was not too challenging, but true to my style I had to add my own tiny twist to it.
So I pulled out my double boiler and made the necessary modifications so that it would be as close to her favorite high carb brownie.
Aiming for the perfect texture, I decided to sift the fine almond flour after I measured it. I think this little extra step really makes for the richest darkest chocolate keto brownies.
Using almond flour instead of regular white flour required an additional egg so that it would produce a keto fudgy brownie. I also decided to go with extra dark cocoa powder because duh, why wouldn’t I?
Wha,t’s more I chose to add a teaspoon of instant coffee to further enhance the chocolate flavor. Can you tell I love all things chocolate?
Well, I must say it’s become my favorite low carb keto brownie recipe. Honestly, as much as I loved my others this one is not only delicious but super easy to make. Even my non-baking friends should give this one a try.
Keto For The Whole Family
When Randy and I made low carb keto a lifestyle, one of the first people we wanted to influence were our children. Growing up we didn’t exactly give them the best eating example.
I’m ashamed to say that for years we based our eating habits on how quickly a meal could make it to the table.
Sure I always made it a point to include some form of protein, but nutrition was not the main focus.
Before you throw stones at me for my poor parenting skills, let me remind you that for over a decade I was extremely ill, bedridden, and unable to function to full capacity.
Today, Randy and I aim to make up for the lost time. We can’t erase the past but we can certainly be an example of what eating should look like for optimal health.
Our Michelle and her husband Peter are on board with the lifestyle and are seeing the benefits. We continue to encourage Matthew to make the shift, but in the meantime, we keep living by example.
Leaving A Legacy Of Healthy Habits
It’s my prayer that my blog will serve as a diary of sorts for our children and grandchildren someday.
That it will remind them that God has the final word, even when the doctors throw up their arms in defeat.
My beautiful children were forced to grow up quickly when I became ill, and it was not easy to see them struggle because of it.
Ultimately, I was able to make Michelle’s wish come true. She was thrilled with the low carb keto brownie. I hope you will give what we feel are the richest darkest keto brownies you will ever have a try.
In case you don’t know I have authored two books for you, Essential Keto Bread and Essential Keto Desserts both inspired by your requests over the years. It’s my prayer these keto cookbooks will help make keto a delicious breeze for you.

If there is one thing I particularly proud of sharing it’s how we combined our Christian faith with the keto diet.
In case you don’t know, Randy and I 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.
Randy had been a diabetic for over 15 years and he was dealing with the consequences of this disease. I was a survivor of the Guillan Barre Syndrome and was fighting fibromyalgia and chronic sciatica.
To say we needed God’s intervention is putting it mildly. When we followed the Holy Spirit’s prompting to 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.
The testimonies coming out of our Fittoservegroup is what motivates us to continue to share what we’ve learned.
We invite you to join our Private Facebook Group and see if it’s not the key you have been missing.
