I have to admit, this isn’t my recipe… This last Valentine’s Day, my girlfriend served up the most scrumptious surprise! She baked me this decadent cocoa fudge brownie, plus, she even made it keto!

Ever since we first started dating, she’s been cognizant of my obsession with health and nutrition. She’s made me protein cookies, protein brownies, protein donuts, and now with my dive into ketosis, she made me these keto brownies.

Not only did she blow me away with her skills in baking this, but she blew me away with the taste and the simplicity in the recipe. How easy can this be? All you have to do is get these proportions right, and the rest is so simple.

If you’re like me and you love your sweets but want to stay in ketosis, PLEASE try this out. Take advantage of my girlfriend’s wonderful baking skills, and eat these brownies. It was so easy, so delicious, and so worth it. Even if you don’t care for this recipe being ketogenic, you can have a decadent dessert completely sugar-free!

TIP: try using no erythritol, a little less cocoa powder, and experiment with chocolate protein powder. If you happen to find out a recipe that works, share it in the comments with some pictures! I’d love to see what you come up with. Happy baking!
