These Chocolate Walnut Brownies are so fudgy, dense, and chocolatey that you won’t believe they are sugar free, low carb and keto-friendly!
My husband, dubbed peanutbutter♥ in this blog, loves donuts. Whenever he sees these round sweet delicious things, he couldn’t resist buying and having it with his coffee. Actually, he loves anything sweet with his coffee, he just loves donuts a little bit more. .. And I, well, I have a sweet tooth. Since we decided to go on a low carb, sugar free, way of eating from now on, I thought I should make more sugar-free dessert to satisfy our cravings.
Hence this Low Carb Sugar Free Chocolate Walnut Brownies.
It’s my first time to try this and all I can say is that even though it’s not yet perfect, I kind of liked how rich and fudgy it turned out. You may want it a bit sweeter though, and for that, you can just add a little bit more sweetener (around ¼ cup) or if you may want it more chocolatey, just add a bit more dark chocolate chips.
I used almond flour to make this brownies in order for it to be low carb and replaced sugar with Equal Gold. It’s granular and it’s okay to use in baking. Plus it doesn’t have a bitter aftertaste. For it to be Sugar-Free, you have to use Sugar-Free chocolate chips like Lily’s . I couldn’t find any sugar-free chocolate chips but since I like the taste of dark chocolate, I just used Guittard extra dark chocolate chips (This is the reason why it has 3 g of sugar). The Extra dark chocolate chips worked for me because I like anything bittersweet.
Anyway, I have a new feature on the blog. I added a nutrition label on each recipe which can serve as a guide when we’re trying to track down what we’re eating.

- Then add the eggs on a time. When it's mixed well, add the vanilla extract.
- The mixture will be a bit dry at this time, so add your warm water ¼ cup at a time on low speed.
- Turn off the mixer and fold the chocolate chips and chopped walnuts by hand. Transfer to your baking pan and bake for 25-30 minutes. Do the toothpick test and if it isn't done yet, bake for 5 more minutes. Let this cool before slicing.
- In my opinion, these brownies are best served when chilled. It's more fudgy.
**Use a sugar-free chocolate chips or just omit the extra dark chocolate chips for it to have 0g of sugar
