If you’re someone who has an intolerance towards gluten, your affinity for baked goods may be compromised. However, with a few recipe modifications here and there, you can literally have your cake and eat it too. Or in this particular case, brownies. Whether cakey, fudgy, chocolatey, the end result should always be delicious. Today, we’re going to show you a few ways on how to make coconut flour brownies.
Brownies With Or Without Flour Should Always Be Tasty
Keto-Friendly Coconut Flour Brownies
- 1/3 cup of melted coconut oil
- 1/2 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
- 6 large eggs
- 1 cup of granulated erythritol
- 1/4 cup of unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 cup of coconut flour
- 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat your oven to 350°F. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the coconut oil and cocoa powder. Whisk together until smooth and no lumps are present and set aside for now.
In another mixing bowl, mix together the eggs, erythritol, almond milk, and salt. Mix all ingredients until well combined.
Step 3: Add in the Chocolate Powder
Take your chocolate mixture and whisk it into the egg and milk mixture until well combined. Next, add in the coconut flour and mix until thoroughly combined being careful not to leave any lumps as these will result in dry patches in your final product. If the mixture still looks too wet, you can add additional flour until it reaches a brownie-like consistency. This is also the time to add the walnuts to the batter if desired.
Step 4: Line Up the Mixture in a Pan
Using an 8×8 baking pan, line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper. If you don’t have parchment paper, you can lightly grease the pan using coconut oil or butter. Pour in your batter, making sure to smooth it out to all sides of the pan. You may also top the batter with extra chopped walnut pieces before baking if desired.
Step 5: Take Out the Air Bubbles
Give the baking pan a couple of taps on the table to knock out any air bubbles before placing it into your preheated oven for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, use a toothpick to check for the consistency based on your preference. For brownies with a more cake-like texture, take your brownies out of the oven when a toothpick inserted in the middle of the pan comes out clean. For brownies with a more fudgy texture, stick to the 30 minutes baking time.
Step 6: Let it Cool
After removing the brownies from the oven, allow them to cool for at least 20-25 minutes to solidify and cool fully. After brownies have fully cooled, portion out and enjoy. If you have leftovers, you can store them in the fridge for up to a week.
This is a great template of a coconut flour brownies recipe to follow. Feel free to customize your batch of brownies and add different toppings such as chocolate chips, low carb cream frosting, or even peanut butter and pretzels.
Keto Chocolate Cheesecake Coconut Flour Brownies
If you’ve never tried cheesecake brownies, you’re truly missing out. It’s not often that two good dishes come together to make something even better but this is one of those rare occasions. Many would think that this treat wouldn’t be safe to eat for people who can’t consume gluten but with this recipe, it’s possible.
- 3.5 ounces of unsalted butter
- 3.5 ounces of 90% dark chocolate, chopped
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup of stevia
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- dash of salt
- 1/4 cup of coconut flour
- 7 ounces of cream cheese, chopped into small chunks
Step 1: Preheat Your Oven
Preheat your oven to 350°F and grease an ovenproof dish. Using a medium saucepan, melt down the chocolate and butter until it achieves a smooth and viscous consistency. Set aside to cool.
Step 2: Mix Your Eggs and Sweeteners
In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together your eggs, vanilla, salt, and stevia. If you have another sweetener you’d like to use, you can substitute that in during this step.
Step 3: Combine
Next, add your chocolate mixture to the eggs and whisk until everything is thoroughly combined. Before mixing, make sure your melted chocolate has cooled adequately before adding to the egg mixture. If still hot, allow to cool further otherwise it could curdle the eggs and you’ll have to start over from the beginning.
Step 4: Add the Coconut Flour
Next, add in the coconut flour, one tablespoon at a time. Coconut flour is a strong thickener because of its high protein and fiber content. So keep an eye on your batter as you’re adding the coconut flour as sometimes you’ll need a little less than the recipe states.
Step 5: Add in the Cream Cheese
Once your batter has reached the right consistency, pour half of it into your greased baking pan. Top this with a layer of the cream cheese chunks. Be sure to set an even layer across the brownie batter so every bite has an equal amount of brownie and cream cheese. Once finished, pour over the remaining brownie batter.
Step 6: Bake Your Brownies
Place into your preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes. For cake-like brownies, pull them out when they start to pull from the sides of the pan or when a toothpick inserted in the center of the pan comes out clean. Allow to fully cool for at least 20-30 minutes before cutting and serving. If not fully consumed, the brownies can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a week.
And there you go, another recipe hack to allow all those brownie lovers to have theirs without the gluten. The coconut is truly an amazing plant. Its water is drinkable, the flesh is edible, the oil is used for cooking and cosmetics, and of course, it can be ground into flour. Coconut flour brownies are simple, delicious, and a great way to enjoy a classic baked dessert but in a gluten-free package.
