It happened. I finally baked something that wasn’t a total disaster. If this is your first time perusing my blog then a backstory is in order but I’ll make it short: I suck at baking. Even pre-keto, I couldn’t bake a cake or a cookie without a box. I just don’t get baking chemistry. Cooking, great, I’m all over it, I can whip up a savory dish and if you cry after eating it, it’ll be because you love it (see: cajun spaghetti squash).
Baking, not so much. I’ve been hesitating to publish the next edition of Keto Life because when I surveyed my readers, the one thing everybody wants in the next update is more dessert recipes. And since I don’t usually go for artificial stuff, I’ve mostly stuck to berries, and more simple whole food dessert dishes.
But not this time. NOT THIS TIME. You guys wanted a chocolatey keto dessert, and I have it for you. I can’t include it in the book because it doesn’t follow the “rules” of whole foods, (and, well, because it’s loosely based on this non-keto recipe) but I don’t think you mind if I publish it here, do you? Nahhhh.
But it’s not without whole food sacrifices. It does use sugar-free maple syrup (Carey’s) and two tablespoons of vanilla syrup (Torani). If this is cool with you, it’ll be your go-to chocolate dish for pairing with wine, or bringing as dessert to your next dinner party — I have to wonder if anybody would even know it’s a keto fudge! It’s so rich and chocolately, I think that’s in part due to the Baker’s Chocolate.
OH AND WAIT! Another thing — these were supposed to be brownies — so when they come out of the oven, if you want to eat them like brownies, you can!
BUT, if you save them in the fridge until they’re cold, they’re even better as fudge. Or cold brownies. Whatever. They’re awesome!
OK, that’s enough out of me, just go ahead and make this keto fudge recipe!
Is there anything i can use instead of coconut oil? Where i live it isnt readily available. Also will homemade almond flour do the job?
Rizan00 You could use ghee instead, that would probably be delicious. Homemade almond flour would probably be fine. 🙂
Hi how would I get the nutrition facts for each square? I have fitness pal but it is counting the whole thing as a meal.
I’m cooking this now.. let’s see how it turns out.. I didn’t have Ghee, so I just used butter… also.. the recipe called for 5 oz of unsweetened chocolate… all I could find were 4 oz packages.. and so I almost doubled the recipe… added in unsweetened coconut flakes.. when I transferred it to the pan (and I made “mini cupcakes”) because there was so much, it seemed very oily.. It’s baking now.. I’m excited to see how it turns out… Oh, PS.. when I was licking the spoon it tasted so bitter (from the chocolate) so I added a little baking stevia to it… trying to sweeten it a little more…
AysiaGilleto You can cut it up into the number of pieces / sizes you like and divide the total count by the number of pieces. 🙂
Love the recipe! Made it twice already!! Second time I added roughly chopped pecans and it was amazing. Thank you!!
What are the other macros for this other than carbs? What are the calories?
