These low carb brownies are fudgy and chewy. They are just 3 ingredients and very easy to make. The brownies take only about five minutes to prepare and you don’t even need a mixer to make them.
Most of the keto brownie recipes I’ve tried are fudgy but rarely are they chewy. What I love about these brownies is that they are a little chewy and super fudgy. They are also very easy to make.
- Cocoa Powder
- Egg Whites
Cocoa Powder: Use unsweetened dutch process cocoa powder. Make sure to use dutch process and not natural cocoa.
Egg Whites: This recipe uses fresh egg whites. The egg whites mixed with the allulose to create the chewy and fudgy texture.
Allulose: Allulose is a low carb sweetener. Make sure to use allulose and not other low carb sweeteners like erythritol or monk fruit. This recipe needs the sweetener to melt like sugar. Erythitol and monk fruit don’t melt the same way. Allulose is a naturally occurring sugar classified as a rare sugar. It largely is not metabolized and passes through the body, which is why it is considered a low carb and keto-friendly sweetener.
How to Make Keto Brownies
The cocoa powder and allulose are first whisked together until uniform. The egg whites are then whisked in until you have a smooth thick batter. The batter is then poured into your prepared baking pan and ready to be baked.

3 Ingredient Fudgy Keto Brownies
- 5 tbsp (32 g) unsweetened dutch process cocoa powder
- 1 1/4 cups (151 g) allulose see note for how to properly measure
- 2 large (63 g) egg whites
- Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Line an 8 x 4 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
- Add cocoa powder and allulose to a large mixing bowl. Mix together with a whisk until evenly combined and there are no lumps of cocoa or allulose.
- Add in egg whites. Whisk in egg whites until the batter becomes smooth and thick. Because this batter has very little liquid, it may seem like you don't have enough liquid at first but as you continue to incorporate the egg whites into the dry mixture, it will continue to absorb the dry ingredients and will turn into a thick batter.
- Pour batter into the prepared baking pan. Bake for about 20-25 minutes. Mine took 23 minutes. When brownies are done, the surface should be puffed up and look cooked (it shouldn't look wet). Let brownies cool fully before cutting and serving. As the brownies cool, they will deflate because of how fudgy they are. The brownies are very fudgy and will stick to the bottom of the parchment paper. I recommend using a thin silicone cookie spatula (the kind of spatula that is used to remove or turn the cookies, not the spatula used for mixing batter) to remove the brownies off the parchment paper.
- When measuring out the allulose, do not directly scoop with the measuring cup. This will result in too much allulose being added to the recipe. Instead, use the spoon and level method. Spoon the allulose into your measuring cup and then level off the surface with a knife.
- This recipe will only work with allulose. It will not work other low carb sweeteners. See the post for more details.
- The brownies work best in an 8 x 4 inch loaf pan with straight edges. This is a pan that measures 8 x 4 inches both on top and at the bottom. If you use a pan with slanted edges, it will be less than 8 x 4 at the bottom, which will make the brownie edges more thick and uneven, so I don't recommend using a pan that measures less than 8 x 4 inches along the bottom. You can also bake in a 9 x 5 inch pan but your brownies will be thinner and you will need less baking time. You can also double the recipe and bake in a 8 x 8 inch baking pan.
