Keto-Friendly and Totally Sugar-Free Chocolate Brownies

 Doesn’t it sound almost too good to be true that you can make these chocolate keto brownies so healthy you can eat them for breakfast?

Aside from being seriously nutritious, these keto avocado chocolate brownies are also gluten-free and completely sugar-free.

I’m using almond flour instead of wheat and Lakanto Golden monk fruit sweetener instead of sugar. This way, you won’t get that blood sugar spike you encounter when you consume high-sugar, high-carb desserts. One keto avocado brownie square only has 148 calories and 3.4g net carbs – suitable for a keto-friendly diet or for diabetics.

What is Lakanto Golden?

Lakanto Golden is a monk fruit and erythritol mix, which is a 1:1 sugar replacement. It is the perfect sweetener for any keto-friendly chocolate desserts (also for desserts that use cinnamon). It has a gentle caramel taste – just like brown sugar – and none of the cooling aftertastes you can get with regular erythritol.

Are you ready for some healthy and keto-friendly brownie action? Let’s get started:
