Here’s the story…
Diet plans clearly abound. If you’re like me, you’re probably overwhelmed by all of the options.
It’s for this reason that, the moment you’ve decided on a particular diet, and it’s time to start menu planning, sticking to your chosen diet is of paramount importance. Straying from your original chosen plan may very well lead to failure. You just may end up back at the drawing board.
This is why you definitely want to compile a small library of recipes that fit within your particular diet plan. So if you’ve chosen the ketogenic diet as your weight loss method, for example, then you ONLY want those types of recipes in your library… and nothing else.
It’s basic, but hugely important.
I’ve been guilty of hopping from one diet to the next. And I’ve done so for one simply reason…
Food and beverages that one eating plan doesn’t let you consume, another, seemingly equally legitimate diet program completely permits. It’s always super tempting to dabble. Besides, those “video doctors” sure do make compelling arguments. And let’s not kid ourselves. Recipe videos are, in many instances, pretty darn will-weakening. 😉
But the thing is, for any diet plan to work effectively, you really need to stick to it. Reaching your weight loss goals may be as simple as eating natural foods and limiting your caloric intake.
Makes sense to me. The fat should come right off if you control what and how much you eat and drink. This is especially true if our activity levels are relatively high.
Clearly, this is standard, conventional wisdom. It probably earned its right to be!
Calorie reduction isn’t the only game in town though. Diets are often effective because of their macro-nutrient ratios. These are often pretty meticulously calculated, and straying from the prescribed ratio may jeopardize your results.
Stick to the plan. Give yourself a fighting chance!

My best to you,
2/3 cup (80g) unsweetened dark cocoa powder (Dutch-processed)
1 cup + 3 tbsp (200g) powdered erythritol / Swerve confectioner’s sweetener / xylitol
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter
2 large** eggs (110g total out of shell, 55g each)
1 tsp (5ml) vanilla extract
1/2 cup + 1 tbsp (70g) almond flour // OR other nut flour
** PLEASE do not use a different size/amount of egg. Low-carb baking relies heavily on eggs for structure, and therefore using different amounts can have a noticeable effect on the outcome of your dessert, especially when it comes to texture and moisture content.
1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Grease your 8″ square baking pan, then dust with a thin layer of cocoa powder and dump out the excess (skip if using baking parchment).
2. In a large bowl, mix together the cocoa, sweeteners, salt, and butter. Melt in the microwave or over low heat until very warm but not hot (around 30 seconds).
3. Let the cocoa mixture cool down a bit, then whisk in the eggs, and vanilla.
4. Next, sift in the almond flour, and mix together thoroughly until fully incorporated.
5. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the edges are firm, but the center is still soft. Cool fully before frosting or slicing, you can even freeze the frosted brownies for about 30 minutes for clean slicing.

This is an American-style frosting, which may be too sweet for some palates, so for a less-sweet option consider using a keto white chocolate ganache in place of the erythritol and butter.
2 cups (270g) powdered erythritol / Swerve confectioner’s sweetener
2 tbsp (30ml) heavy whipping cream
1/4 tsp mint flavoring
1 tsp (5ml) vanilla extract
6 tbsp (84g) unsalted butter
(optional) 5-10 drops 5-10 green food coloring
1. Whip the butter until fluffy and softened, then gradually mix in half the powdered sweetener.
2. Next incorporate the whipping cream, followed by the remaining sweetener. Once everything has been fully incorporated, mix in the mint, vanilla, and food coloring.
Frosting Macros: (1 recipe = 9 servings)

MACROS for 1 serving (9 servings per recipe):

Fudgy keto chocolate brownies + a creamy sweet layer of mint frosting on top = a match made in heaven. Not a fan of mint? Feel free to swap in a teaspoon or two of matcha powder in place of the mint flavoring.
