One of the primary ingredients in this recipe is chocolate. In addition to tasting great, chocolate is one of the best sources of flavonoid antioxidants on the planet! 

Research shows that chocolate consumption increases polyphenol concentrations in the body, which have anti-inflammatory effects that have been shown to protect against cardiovascular disease, reduce the risk of insulin resistance and diabetes, protect nerves from inflammation and injury, and protect against skin UV damage. Chocolate also has a beneficial effect on mood, cognition, and satiety (*). 

You’ll also be using a lot of almonds in this recipe, which provide healthy sources of fats and fiber. Research shows that fiber helps promote digestive health, boosts the immune system, fights obesity and diabetes, and even protects against cancer (*)(*).

How to

Preheat the oven to 300F and line a baking pan with parchment paper. We used an 8×4 bread loaf pan size.

In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients that we use for the crust. We have ground almonds (you can use almond flour if you want to), cocoa powder, coconut flour, and baking powder. We add a little bit of salt and keto sweetener.

Mix eggs in, one at a time, as well as the olive oil. You can also use butter or melted coconut oil. Use an electric mixer to beat everything. Add just enough almond milk to make the brownie pourable. Finally, fold in some chopped almonds.

mix crust ingredients

Pour the crust batter into a prepared baking dish. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Once done, remove from oven and let cool.

In the meantime, prepare the coconut filling by simply beating heavy cream, coconut flour, melted cream cheese, and sweetener together in a bowl.

Wait for the brownie crust to cool completely then spread coconut filling over it.
