This keto coconut flour brownie 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)?!
Can I Use Coconut Flour For Brownies?
Yes, coconut flour is a great option for brownies! But you need a coconut flour brownie recipe; you can’t just replace all-purpose flour in traditional brownies, or it will turn out dry and gritty. This recipe has plenty of “wet” ingredients and the right sweetener to help them bake up into soft and fudgy brownies, with cream, butter, and an allulose-based sugar substitute.
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.
For the best coconut flour keto brownies, you need the best sugar-free chocolate… which is why I use ChocZero Dark Chocolate 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.

Keto Coconut Flour Brownies Ingredients
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 – These chips make the BEST coconut flour brownies! They’re rich and sweet, just like conventional chocolate chips, but contain zero sugar.
- Monk Fruit Allulose Blend – I highly recommend this particular sweetener for this recipe, since it measures just like sugar and gives the brownies a softer, fudgier texture.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

Thank you for this recipe. It is surprisingly good. I have had a hard time learning to like desserts that aren’t loaded with sugar. I only used a little less than 1 cup of chocolate chips (because that’s all I had) and added an avocado. This will be my go to for my chocolate craving.
Great recipe, very easy to make and absolutely delicious!
Very simple and delicious!!! Thank you for sharing!
Super delish! First time buying several of these ingredients! This recipe is a winner! Do not be tempted to over bake! Toothpick should be a little gooey!
What if I don’t have a double broiler for the chocolate chips?

Hi Michelle, You can melt the chocolate in the microwave, but you will have to watch it closely because it can burn quickly.
These brownies were so rich and fudgy. I really like that it’s all coconut flour because I have an intolerance to almonds. I had some KAF espresso powder and added some to make the chocolate flavor stand out. This is the last brownie recipe you will ever need. I’ve tried way too many keto brownie recipes and they all ended up like chocolate cake. This one is the best!
Hi. I may have missed it but you list besti monk fruit allulose blend in ingredients. But I don’t see it mentioned in the instructions section.

Hi Debbie, Besti is mentioned in direction #4.
These are very rich and delicious!
Do you think I could add unsweetened coconut flakes and create a type of ‘mounds’ bar? I haven’t tried this recipe yet but it looks great.
Wholesome Yum D0
Hi Lori, I do think that would work in this recipe.
These were amazing! Finally found a recipe that only has coconut flour as most Keto recipes I am covering from almond. My hubby is allergic to nuts so it can be a challenge sometimes. He LOVES these brownies and he’s not a chocolate guy!!
My brownies have not come out thick and fudgey both times I’ve made them. In fact, the second go round they are gritty in texture. What did I do wrong?
Maya | Wholesome Yum0
Hi Michelle, Sorry to hear that! Are you using Besti sweetener? Other sweeteners are the most common reason for gritty brownies in this recipe.
Can I use straight Allulose and/or Swerve or Erythritol? I don’t have the Monk Fruit blend. Thank you.
Wholesome Yum D0
Hi Sheri, I don’t recommend Swerve or other erythritol-based sweeteners for brownies, as there’s a noticeable cooling effect and the sweetener doesn’t dissolve fully, sometimes leaving a gritty texture. You can get Besti here, which yields the best result in this recipe in terms of taste and texture (makes them super fudgy!), but plain allulose will work as well (you’ll need 33% more).
If you love chocolate you’ll love these brownies. They’re almost like fudge. I only baked them for 20 minutes and they came out just perfect. Next time I might add some chopped walnuts or pecans. Another great recipe from Wholesomeyum!
We love walnuts, can you add walnuts to this recipe. Can’t wait to try it.

Hi Carol, Absolutely! Enjoy!
Thanks for the recipe!!!! Easy and delicious.
G’day, I am about to make these and was wanting to know if i needed to add the heavy cream. (what is it for) as i havent got any and it is a long way to a store.
Is there anything else i could use?
Wholesome Yum M0
Hi Trudy, Feel free to increase the butter by 2 tablespoons. Enjoy!
I’d really like to make these, but I don’t have a food processor. Why is it necessary and is there a suitable substitute? Thanks!
Wholesome Yum M0
Hi K Landon, I think a food processor gives the best results, but a hand or stand mixer would work well too. Enjoy!
These look so delicious but I don’t have a food processor so wondering if I could use my Ninja?

Hi Shelagh, I have not tested this recipe with that machine, but it should work. Please let us know if you decide to try it!
Chocolate, coconut, heavy cream, eggs… this recipe looked too good to be true. And it tasted heavenly! What a delicious brownie. Thanks for all the tips and tricks to make them perfectly textured too!

I love that these brownies are made out of coconut flour. So rich, dense and chocolatey!
I watch my Suger also. How much sugar per serving
Wholesome Yum M0
Hi John, These brownies use a keto-friendly sweetener in place of sugar. One Coconut Flour Brownie is 0.3 grams of sugar. Feel free to check out the recipe card for the full nutrition facts.
Oh, I LOVE brownies and these look so fudgey — my favorite way to cook them! Can’t wait to make them!
Fudgy and delicious! And healthy!! So awesomely healthy! One of my new favorites!
My family loved these brownies!
These were really good! Rich and chocolatey goodness!
These brownies were so good!! My kids enjoyed it and couldn’t get enough of it!
I never knew low-carb brownies could be so delicious!!!!
This is perfect!
I love love love these delicious brownies! Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too!
I seriously cannot believe these are “healthy” brownie. My kids can’t tell the difference and that’s all that matters! Yummy!
I sure love the added flavor & texture the coconut flour gives. And, the fact that you added chocolate chips makes them amazing!
Fudgy & hardly any carbs are my kind of brownies!! They are thick & chocolate-y too, which makes them an even better brownie.
