Brownie Bites ... made the low carb / keto way

Brownie Bites … made the low carb / keto way


Almond flour is the secret to these low carb / keto Brownie Bites. Also, because you use almond flour it means this recipe is gluten free, grain free and paleo. Almond flour is just almonds ground up into almond ‘meal.’ You can usually find it at most grocery stores and supermarkets, but it’s also easy and much cheaper to make homemade almond flour! Almonds are low in carbs, rich in fibre, and loaded with satiating dietary fats, so it just makes sense that almond flour is the key to making low carb brownie bites! 


It is because almond flour is a bit denser than traditional flours, it makes these low carb brownies so satisfying. But, they’ve still got a surprisingly light, airy, and cakey texture thanks to the fluffiness from the eggs! There are more eggs in this recipe than traditional brownie recipes because they’re needed to prevent your low carb brownies from crumbling.
