Keto Marshmallow Brownies Recipe is going to make you scratch your head and wonder how is it one of the healthy brownie recipes – because, it is just that good!
Marshmallows – On Keto? You must be crazy!
Honestly, no, I’m not crazy. Well, maybe a little, but I just really love things to taste deliciously sweet, don’t you?!
Just because we are cutting carbs and eliminating refined sugars, doesn’t mean that we have to quit baking or stop enjoy the baked sweets we love all together!
But, some adjustments have to be made.
Keto Marshmallow Brownies Recipe Ingredients
With the keto diet, the sweetener is one of the primary changes to be made in any recipe.
I have linked to products that I use, available from Amazon – if you purchase through these links, it will not cost you any extra and I will make a small commission.
- Sugar-free marshmallows – these make this recipe what it is!
- Low-carb sweetener – coconut sugar or monk fruit.
- Chocolate Chips that are keto and paleo approved – I use Viva Naturals
- Peanut Butter or Almond Butter – Used for the topping in this recipe. Most keto gurus will say no to peanut butter and yes to almond butter. However, once again, this is about your personal preference and your diet.
Sugar-Free Marshmallows and Natural Sweeteners
I know what you’re thinking. There is no way that there are sugar-free marshmallows!
Well, believe me, there are and you can buy them sugar-free marshmallows from my affiliate (it will not cost you any more but I will make a small commission).
Or, try to make your own sugar-free marshmallows with this recipe – Cut them to whatever size you may need
Sweetener Options to Use in Keto Brownies
You will see that I have suggested using either coconut sugar or monk fruit.
Some Keto pros suggest staying away from coconut sugar and prefer the monk fruit. However, I think it is more about your preference in this recipe and what you have on hand.
Typically, I use monk fruit sweetener.
Other low carb sweeteners for the Keto Diet include:
- Stevia – Stevia is an herb, commonly known as “sugar leaf”.
- Erythritol – Erythritol is naturally found in fruits, vegetables and fermented foods.
- Monk Fruit Sweetener – I use both Classic and Golden which is more like brown sugar.
- Yacon Syrup
Brownies – Q and A
Why Do My Brownies Get Hard?
It could be humidity. If there is not enough moisture in the air, baked goods tend to get hard.
It could also be that there are not enough wet ingredients in the recipe. With brownies, most of the time, there should be more wet than dry ingredients.
Another factor to consider is how you store brownies. Brownies (and these keto brownies are no exception) should be stored in an airtight container.
How Do You Moisten Hard Brownies?
Heat is a great way to moisten up your hardened brownies.
To moisten a hardened brownie:
- Take a slice of brownie, wrap it up in a damp paper towel and place it in the microwave.
- Heat the brownie in 5 second intervals, checking the texture at each end.
- When it is ready, you will have a moist, warm and ready to eat slice of brownie!
Can Brownies Stay Out Overnight?
Yes, brownies can sit out overnight if they last that long!
When leaving brownies out at room temperature, be sure that your brownies are either properly sealed with plastic wrap or placed in a nice airtight container.
This will allow them to sit out, without their moisture disappearing overnight.
