Monk Fruit Sweetener
These brownies are sweetened with Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener, my favorite net-carb-free and all-natural sweetener. I have been a longtime customer of Lakanto and am always so impressed with the quality of their products.
If you are unfamiliar with monk fruit sweetener, it is a great sugar substitute that is naturally-occurring and tastes like traditional sugar; however, unlike traditional sugar, the sweetness of monk fruit sweetener comes from mogrosides, a chemical compound, rather than fructose or sucrose. Monk fruit sweetener doesn’t spike blood sugar and is safe to consume for those with diabetes or candida. If you follow a low-carbohydrate, ketogenic diet, monk fruit sweetener is a pantry-necessity!
If you are looking for a sweetener that is keto-friendly, vegan, and paleo-compliant, I highly recommend trying Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener! You can use code “REALBALANCED” for 20% off your total order!

- 6 oz unsweetened Baker’s chocolate
- 6 tbsp coconut oil or, for coconut-free, butter
- 1 1/4 cup golden monk fruit sweetener, divided (use code “REALBALANCED” for 20% off Lakanto products)
- 4 eggs, room temperature
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp espresso powder
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease 8×8 baking pan with coconut oil (* see note below).
- To a small stainless steel or glass bowl, add Baker’s chocolate bar and coconut oil. Using the double boiler method with a small pot over medium-low heat, melt and combine chocolate and coconut oil, whisking occasionally. Once chocolate has melted, reduce heat to low, add 1/2 cup monk fruit sweetener, and wait for sweetener to dissolve, whisking often (be patient! This can take upwards of 15 minutes). Set aside to cool slightly.
- Separate egg yolks from egg whites into two large mixing bowls. Using an electric mixer, mix egg whites on high-speed until stiff peaks form. To mixed egg whites, add 1/4 cup monk fruit sweetener and electric mix on low until well-combined and egg whites become glossy.
- Rinse off beaters from electric mixer then mix egg yolks and remaining 1/2 cup monk fruit sweetener on high-speed. To bowl of yolks, add melted chocolate mixture, cocoa powder, espresso powder, salt, and vanilla extract and electric mix again on high-speed.
- Slowly, in small batches, pour mixed egg whites into bowl of chocolate mixture and gently fold together using a rubber spatula until thoroughly combined. Transfer mixture to prepared baking pan.
- Bake brownies until toothpick can be poked in and comes out clean, about 35-40 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool before slicing and serving.
* To ensure pan is well-greased and that brownies will not stick, I suggest brushing 1-2 tsp melted coconut oil on all edges of the loaf pan and placing it in the freezer to solidify.
