Servings 8 servings


  • 1/3 cup butter melted
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 cup prepared coffee or almond milk will work to substitute
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder unsweetened
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds ground
  • 1/3 cup powdered erythritol
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder or substitute with vanilla powder
  • salt to taste
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder gluten-free


  • liquid stevia extract to taste


  • Preheat your oven to 350. As that warms, mix your melted butter (keeping aside 1 teaspoon for greasing), eggs, and coffee in a bowl before adding the cocoa powder, chia seeds, erythritol, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder. If so desired, you can add a little liquid stevia for a sweeter brownie.
  • Pour your dough into a cast iron skillet or an 8” square baking pan, either greased with your teaspoon of butter or lined with parchment paper. Bake 12-15 minutes for fudge-like brownies or up to 18 minutes for cake-consistency brownies. Be careful not to overbake, as the brownie will continue to cook a little more after you pull it out.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool before cutting into 8 slices to serve.
