Low Carb Brownie Bites

Standard

I have developed a love for almond flour, after a failed attempt at some muffins (which I’m still determined to perfect), I tried again and this time it was a home run! Moist chocolate goodness in a convenient two bite brownie! Just 3 grams of net carbs per piece make this a delicious low carb breakfast, dessert or snack!

Why yes that is powdered sugar! I didn’t say these were no carb, they are LOW carb. As in much, much lower than your traditional brownie recipe. The powdered sugar is obviously optional, but trust me, it makes these brownie bites much more decadent!

Low Carb Brownie Bites 

What you need;

  • 4 TBLS Kerry Gold unsalted butter
  • 3 TBLS semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 C finely sifted almond flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract 
  • 1 TBLS coconut oil
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 TBLS white granulated sugar (you could use a sugar sub. to make this even lower carb, but I’m not a big fan so real sugar in moderation is what I do) 
  • 2 scoops of chocolate protein shake powder (I used Isagenix Dutch Chocolate, use the scoop that comes with the powder)
  • 1/4 C water
  • 1 tsp powdered sugar

How to make;

Preheat oven to 375. Melt butter and coconut oil together in a bowl in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. Remove from microwave and stir in chocolate chips until melted, set aside. In another bowl whisk 2 eggs until frothy. Add vanilla extract to eggs and whisk until incorporated. Add almond flour, 2 scoops of chocolate protein shake powder and baking powder to eggs. Mix well. Mixture will get very thick. Add melted oil, butter and chocolate mixture to the bowl, stir together. Add granulated sugar. Mix until incorporated. Add water to thin out the mixture. Spray a 24 count mini muffin tin with non stick cooking spray. Use a tablespoon to divide mixture evenly into each section of the pan. Bake at 375 for 12 minutes. Cool completely. Using a fine mesh sifter, sift 1 tsp of powdered sugar on top of muffins. Store in an air tight container. Enjoy!
