BFF Brownies: Easiest & Best Brownies EVER!!

Best Brownies Ever 1These brownies are moist, delicious and decadent and oh, they are grain-free, low-carb and flour-free too! This recipe will please every chocolate lover and even the pickiest of eaters. They are full of flavor sans the grains, processed sugar and expensive flours! Bring these to the next pot luck and you will be sure that people will be asking for the recipe!

I thought I would say Happy New Year with this easy but delicious brownie recipe. I am sure most of you have made New Years Resolutions to stop bad habits, eat better foods and improve your overall health and these brownies can fit within your goals! I’m not saying you should eat the entire batch but enjoying one of these brownies that doesn’t contain any grains and is low in carbs is 100 times better than indulging in a grain-filled, sugar filled one!

I don’t believe in depriving myself of a tasty treat but when I do enjoy a dessert, you better bet it will be grain-free and low-carb. That has been my food philosophy for over 3 years and it has worked well for me. If I want something sweet, I create a grain-free and low-carb version and over the last 3 years I have created almost 450 unique recipes which are on my blog and in my two cookbooks, Satisfying Eats and Comforting Eats! What can I say… I love to eat. I love to cook. I believe modern day grains should be eliminated from our diets and I have over 450 recipes that say eliminating grains and excess sugar can still taste good!

043A few notes about these amazing brownies:

  1. If using unsalted nut and seed butter, add 1/8 tsp. salt to the batter.
  2. Be sure to blend your natural nut and seed butters so that the oil is mixed in well.
  3. The honey is optional but add just a little bit for extra sweetness. See THIS post for what sweeteners I use.
  4. These are amazing right out of the oven but they are even better the next day. Actually, on the 7th day of being in the fridge (in a sealed container) they are even better! They are moist and dense, just like that of a Little Debbie Brownie! 
  5. Don’t want a big batch of brownies? Simply half the recipe and make in a 9X5 loaf pan. Cut cooking time to 10-12 minutes.

I hope you enjoy!

  1. Preheat oven to 340 degrees F. Line with parchment paper or butter the bottom of an 8X8 square or 8" cake pan and set aside. 

    Add all ingredients to a medium bowl (except the chocolate chips and extra nuts) and blend with mixer until smooth. Taste for sweetness and adjust if needed. Pour batter into prepared pan, being sure to spread batter to corners. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and extra nuts.

    Bake for 17-20 minutes or just until the center starts to rise and hold shape. DO NOT overbake. Serve immediately or refrigerate for a few days to increase fudginess. :) 

    **These brownies would be better under cooked than overcooked. If you do accidentially overbake, cover brownies and refrigerate for a few days. This will bring back moisture.

    Amazing!!!! The texture was like cake brownies the first day and fudgy brownies after that. I can’t believe this is possible without flour. I’m still new to using stevia so they weren’t quite sweet enough, but I know that can be fixed. I will definitely be making these again. They make great ice cream sandwiches too!

  2. Katie says

    These are the ONLY grain-free, stevia-sweetened brownies I’ve ever made that actually deliver the promised fudgey texture! And I’ve tried *many* recipes. These were SO good!!! Like the other commenter, I also added more stevia, but that’s just personal taste. I made them a few days ago, and am making them again today. Hands down the best! Thanks for such a great recipe.

  3. Anna says

    I found these to be really dry and crumbly, to the point where they almost fell apart at the touch (into crumbs). I followed the recipe exactly. Not sure what went wrong?

    • satisfyingeats says

      Anna, double check that you didn’t forget an ingredient. Because of the nut butter, I can’t imagine why it would be dry and crumbly… Hope you figure it out. This is really a great brownie!

      • Leah says

        I had exactly the same problem as Anna. I double and triple checked the ingredients, the instructions, etc. and I’m certain I followed the recipe to the letter. My hubby even watched as I made the brownies and he is certain I followed the recipe exactly as well. Very disappointing.

        • satisfyingeats says

          Leah, I am baffled. You can see all of the other positive comments. Please list for me the exact ingredients you used and I’ll try to see what went wrong. These brownies are far from crumbly. Give me some more information and I’ll help you!

          One more thing, if they were overbaked, place them in the fridge for a few days. This will help them become moist again. Hope this helps!
