This coconut flour brownies recipe is so loaded with chocolaty flavor and fudgy texture, it will satisfy all those chocolate cravings. My classic keto almond flour brownies are always my fave keto chocolate dessert, but for my nut-free readers, let me show you how to make keto brownies with coconut flour that are just as delicious. And did I mention that they bake up soft and rich (never dry)?! And, if you love brownies as much as I do, try my zucchini brownies next.
Coconut flour recipes sometimes get a bad reputation for being dry, but just like classic treats like coconut flour blueberry muffins, coconut flour pancakes, coconut flour chocolate chip cookies, and keto sugar cookies, it’s totally possible to make keto brownies using coconut flour with the right technique — and the right ingredients.

Ingredients & Substitutions
This section explains how to choose the best healthy ingredients for keto brownies made with coconut flour, what each one does in the recipe, and substitution options. For measurements, see the recipe card below.
- ChocZero Sugar-Free Dark Chocolate Chips -For the best coconut flour keto brownies, you need the best sugar-free chocolate… which is why I use these chips in AND on top of this dessert! They create the most fudgy coconut flour brownies without any white sugar, sugar alcohols, gluten, or GMOs.
- Besti Monk Fruit Allulose Blend – I highly recommend this particular sugar substitute for this recipe, since it measures just like sugar and gives the brownies a softer, fudgier texture. Other sweeteners can make the brownies more dry.
- Butter – I use a grass-fed variety, but any unsalted kind will work. Coconut oil may work as a dairy free alternative, but the texture and flavor of the brownies will be a bit different. You can also use ghee to make them paleo brownies.
- Unsweetened Cocoa Powder – Adds more chocolaty flavor! Use a high-quality kind if you can — you’ll taste the difference. Cacao powder works fine as well.
- Wholesome Yum Coconut Flour – Essential for a keto brownie recipe using coconut flour! 😉 This one is made with just one ingredient and naturally rich in fiber. You won’t taste the coconut flavor.
- Eggs – Help hold the brownies together. Egg substitutes like flax eggs might work, but I haven’t tried to confirm.
- Heavy Cream – Or full fat coconut milk should also work.
- Vanilla Extract – Enhances the rich chocolate flavors.
- Sea Salt – Balances the sweet taste.
How To Make Coconut Flour Brownies
This section shows how to make coconut flour keto brownies with step-by-step photos and details about the technique, to help you visualize it. For full instructions, including amounts and temperatures, see the recipe card below.
- Melt. Gently melt butter and chocolate chips in a double boiler. Set aside to cool.
- Add wet ingredients. Transfer the butter mixture to a food processor and add eggs, vanilla, and heavy cream. Pulse until combined.
TIP: Use room-temperature wet ingredients for best results. Otherwise, your butter and chocolate mixture could get clumpy.
- Prep dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, stir cocoa powder, sweetener, coconut flour, and salt.
- Combine. Combine the wet butter mixture and dry cocoa mixture in the food processor and pulse until smooth.
- Spread. Pour batter to the prepared pan and spread to the corners. Top with more chocolate chips.
- Bake. They are done when they are barely set on the edges, but still soft in the center.
TIP: Do NOT follow the traditional “toothpick” rule. Instead of waiting until an inserted toothpick comes out cleanly, you’ll want just a small amount of batter on it. A clean toothpick may mean your brownies got too dry.
- Cool. Let your brownies cool completely before slicing them.
Are Coconut Flour Brownies Keto?
Brownies with coconut flour might be keto, but it depends on the other ingredients used — always check nutrition facts to be certain. These brownies clock in at just 1.7g net carbs each, making them perfect for a keto diet!
Why Are My Brownies Dry?
Dry brownies could happen for several reasons:
- Over-baking. If you waited until the toothpick test yielded a clean toothpick, the brownies were over-baked.
- Different sweetener. Sugar alcohols such as erythritol will create a less-soft brownie.
- Over-measuring. Be careful measuring coconut flour! Using even a little bit extra can create dry results.
- To store: Store at room temperature in an airtight container for 2-4 days.
- To freeze: Wrap in plastic, then store in a freezer-safe bag or container for 4-6 months. Thaw in wrapping overnight before serving.
