Ingredients

Adjust Servings:
150g (5oz) unsalted butter or coconut oil
150g (5oz), chopped dark chocolate at least 70% cocoa solids
1/4 teaspoon pure stevia powder see important note below
6 eggs
50g (1.75oz) coconut flour
100g (3.5oz) smooth peanut butter

Variations

*important note about stevia! – there are 4 types of stevia:
1. Pure Stevia Powder – looks like icing (powdered / confectioners) sugar. It’s expensive but a tiny amount goes a long long way. We’re talking 1/2 teaspoon to sweeten a whole cake. This is what I use.
2. Granular Stevia (like Natvia or Truvia) – looks like regular white sugar. It’s a blend of erythritol and stevia. Usually 1/4 teaspoon = 4-6 tablespoons granular stevia.
3. Fresh or Dried Stevia Leaves – from a real stevia plant! I haven’t baked with them but they will behave similar to the pure stevia powder. Just add to taste.
4. Liquid stevia. I haven’t used this. But add to taste.

granular stevia – replace pure powder with 4-6 tablespoons granular stevia.

no stevia – use your favourite sweetener… Honey, maple syrup, xylitol or white sugar! Just add and taste until you’re happy with the sweetness level.

sugar lovers – use 100g (3.5oz) sugar instead of the stevia. If you like things on the sweeter side add more.

egg-free / vegan – I’m afraid the eggs are really critical here. Best to find another recipe.

nut-free – just skip the peanut butter.

vanilla – not essential but 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract added with the eggs can be lovely.

chunky – add a handful of chopped nuts. Pecans are my fave.

These brownies not only look super pretty, they’re also really really easy to make AND quick. Perfect for when you have a last minute brownie ’emergency’. Plus they’re delicious with that rich, squidgy texture all good brownies possess.

SUPER IMPORTANT: It can be easy to over bake these brownies because of the high egg content so make sure you set your timer! It’s better to err on the side of slightly under baked otherwise the texture will end up rubbery.
