This recipe uses stevia which is an all natural sweetener that does not impact blood sugar levels. If you don’t like stevia, you can also try this monk fruit sweetener which doesn’t impact blood sugar at all. Other sweetener options include honey, coconut nectar and organic sugar but all of these impact your blood sugar and insulin levels and are not keto.
If you are sensitive to almonds, you can try using coconut flour, but I would increase your eggs to 4 for the same amount of flour as coconut flour is very dry and you need a lot of liquid and sticky substances like eggs to absorb it.

If you are looking for a sugar-free, keto treat than try out this brownie cookie recipe. It tastes amazing and is full of nutrient dense ingredients that help you burn fat for fuel.
A ketogenic nutrition plan is high in healthy fats, contains a moderate amount of protein and is very low in net carbs. You calculate net carbs by taking the total carbs – fiber. Fiber has no impact on blood sugar levels for most people and it helps support the microbiome. A properly formulated ketogenic diet is relatively high in fiber but it is low in overall net carbs.
Non-processed chocolate is called cacao and this food is rich in polyphenolic anti-oxidants and theobromide which help support blood flow into the brain. Chocolate is also very high in natural PEA’s that support neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine. These neurochemicals help us to feel good, stay focused and be happy!
