Almond Flour Brownie

Learn how to prepare this almond flour brownie, sugar-free, and gluten-free in less than 15 minutes, 10 for preparation and 4 for baking.



  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp whole milk (You can omit the cream and use 4 tbsp of milk instead)
  • 2 tbsp coffee (Optional, you can replace it with an extra egg or substitute it with more milk or cream)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp erythritol (I actually used 2 and a half tbsp)
  • 1/4 tsp stevia (I added a bit of stevia because it sweetens much more than erythritol, and mixing both gives the perfect flavor)
  • 1/2 cup almond meal (I used naturally ground almond meal, not very fine, but you can use finely ground almond meal for a smoother batter)
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour (Coconut flour is optional, it doesn't affect the taste much, it's more for the consistency of the batter. Note that if you use shredded coconut, it will affect the texture of the cake, noticeable when chewing)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (If you want to enhance the chocolate flavor, you can add an extra tbsp, but make sure to compensate with a bit more sweetener)
  • 9 walnuts (If you prefer, you can use almonds or hazelnuts, or simply omit them)

1. Beat the eggs and add all the liquid ingredients: milk, heavy cream, coffee, and vanilla extract.

2. Add erythritol and stevia, beat well.

3. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl and add them to the mixture of liquid ingredients. Use a whisk to integrate all the ingredients.

4. Coat a microwave-safe glass dish with butter or coconut oil. I used a Pyrex dish measuring 6" x 5 ".

5. Place the batter into the mold and arrange the whole walnuts evenly. Cover with microwave-safe plastic wrap, make holes with a knife, and ensure the wrap doesn't touch the batter at any point. 

6. Cook the brownie for 2 minutes at 600W. Let it rest for 2 or 3 minutes and cook it again for the same duration, 2 minutes at 600W.

7. Make sure it's cooked; if you see any part that remains liquid, you can add an extra 30 seconds or even 1 minute.

8. Allow it to cool for a few hours, then unmold and cut it into small square pieces. It's better the next day.

*Even though I don't add sugar, erythritol, almond meal, coconut flour, walnuts, and dairy contribute some amount of carbohydrates and fats.
