These Keto Caramel Nut Chocolate Brownies are everything you’ve ever wanted in a low carb brownie, and so much more!
Fudgy chocolate brownie layer? Check! Sweet, oozy caramel? Check! Crunchy walnuts? Check, CHECK! Seriously – these Keto caramel nut chocolate brownies are so good you’ll never know they are low carb!!!
Let’s break it down…
The low carb chocolate brownie layer is super chocolatey and just sweet enough. It’s tender, and fudgy, and…perfect. The texture is much firmer when refrigerated, but I prefer them at room temp or even slightly warm because the chocolate bits are soft and melty on the inside, and the caramel will be softer too. The whole thing just melts in your mouth, but you also have the pleasant texture of the walnuts on top to keep it interesting. You’ll see…
The keto chocolate brownie layer is made primarily with almond flour – to get the right texture you’ll need a super fine blend – a really course almond “meal” won’t work nearly as well. There is a small amount of coconut flour in these as well – you can replace it with more almond flour if you have a coconut allergy, but it may affect the texture a bit.
I used chopped walnuts on top of these, but you could use almost any nut in place of them. Pecans, almonds, or even pistachios would work great.
Now how about that caramel?
I used half and half instead of heavy cream, because the small amount of milk sugar gives it a more authentic flavor and color. It also helps this Keto caramel stay soft when it cools, making it more pleasant to eat. The bourbon adds a nice flavor to this caramel, but it also helps it to keep from solidifying as it cools.
If you opt to leave the bourbon out, replace it with an extra 2 Tbsp of half and half to compensate.
I’ll be experimenting more with this Keto caramel recipe, because it makes a fantastic Keto caramel frosting when whipped after it’s cooled, AND with a few little tweaks you have keto friendly caramel fudge!
