What if you get to eat a scrumptious dessert that’s guilt-free and healthy? Here is a simple and easy sugar-free brownie recipe anyone can try to satisfy their sweet tooth.
Sugar-Free Brownie Recipe
This chocolate brownie recipe is sugar-free and eggless. It is loaded with healthy fats, protein, and fiber. Add some chopped roasted walnuts to the brownie for a perfect nutty flavor.
1 1/3 cup refined flour
1/3 cup butter (you need extra for greasing)
2 Tsp. baking powder
3.5 oz chopped dark chocolate
1/3 cup sugar substitute
1/2 cup dairy milk (warm)
1/2 cup chopped roasted walnuts
1 Tsp. vanilla
Sugar-free chocolate sauce to garnish
Directions To Make
Grease a brownie tin and dust some flour. Melt chocolate and butter by pouring warm milk over them. Once the buttery chocolate melts, stir in sugar substitute and vanilla. Now sift baking powder and refined flour into the buttery chocolate mixture. Add the walnuts and mix everything well to form a cake-like batter. Pour the brownie batter into the tin, tap the tin a bit, and bake for some 33 minutes at 180 degrees. Take the brownie out and cut it into square-shaped pieces. Drizzle chocolate sauce (sugar-free) over the brownie and serve warm.
Sugar-Free Brownie Recipe (Vegan)
If you are a sheer vegan, then this sugar-free brownie recipe can be your best bet. As this brownie is made with whole wheat flour and dates, it is healthy to the core. You can also use jaggery or store-bought sugar substitute instead of dates.
3 Tbsp. almond butter
1/3 cup + 8 Tbsp. unsweetened almond milk
2 cups of pitted and soaked dates
1 ⅓ cups melted dark chocolate
1 Tsp. vanilla essence
3 Tbsp. ground flax seed
1/4 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup pieces of sugar-free, dairy-free chocolate
For Frosting: 1 cup almond milk + sugar-free chocolate pudding mix
Directions To Make
Take a food processor and blend the soaked dates, two tablespoons of almond milk, and almond butter. Once the mixture is creamy and smooth, set it aside. Now stir the flax seeds in about six tablespoons of almond milk. Add this flax seed mixture to the date cream mixture along with cocoa, vanilla, flour, and the remaining milk. Pulse everything and then add the melted chocolate. Now add the pieces of sugar-free chocolate to the creamy brownie batter. Transfer this brownie batter to a lined baking dish and bake for some 22 minutes at 175 °C. Le the brownie cool, spread the frosting, and then cut it into square sized pieces.
To make the frosting, beat the frosting ingredients in an electric mixer for 3 minutes or so. Spread the frosting over the brownie, cut into squares, and serve. You can also use sugar-free chocolate syrup instead of frosting.
Tips For The Perfect Sugar-Free Brownie Recipe
- The brownie should still a bit moist from the middle. Once you take it out and cool it down, it will get firmer.
- You can also use sugar-free chocolate chips rather than pieces of chocolate.
- If you are not using dates, take jaggery and dissolve it with coconut yogurt before combing it with the other brownie ingredients.
- If you use eggs, combine them with sugar and vanilla before adding them to the dry mixture.
- Some other sugar substitutes are maple syrup, unsweetened applesauce, raw, and honey. You can also use coconut jaggery powder as it’s unrefined and natural.
