    I can’t find the section on sweeteners with possible substitutions? Could you please give me the link? Thank you!! btw I love your recipes!! 🙂

    • Paola says:

      Hi Sandra! So happy you’re loving the recipes! And simply scroll up the post and there’s a section titled The Sweetener (there’s one in every post) xo!

        • Paola says:

          Yup! Xylitol, Lakanto and Swerve are all 1-to-1 to sugar. I’ll put in parenthesis when quantities change (such as with Pyure, but that one doesn’t work well here) xo!

  2. Alleana says:

    WOW!! These were delicious!! And my kids loved them too! The older one even said that these were like none of the other ‘yucky healthy sweets mummy’s been making’. Couldn’t stop laughing! THANK YOU!

    • Paola says:

      Oh lol Alleana!! I think that’s the best compliment these brownies could’ve received! Cracking up too- thanks for sharing! 🙂

  3. Adrianna says:

    Soo… really want to try these newish to keto and see a lot of recipes with cream cheese.. I have a hate for cheese I can only really eat cheap pizza cheese… do you taste the cream cheese or is it just kinda hidden

    • Paola says:

      Hi Adrianna! I mean, these are cheesecake brownies… so you can definitely taste the cheese part! If you don’t really like cheese I would suggest you make the regular version without the cream cheese xo 😉

  4. Connie says:

    Hi – So excited to try these! I was wondering, have you ever tried substituting butter with lard, or if you know if that would work with this recipe? Thanks!!

  5. LaToya says:

    Hello new to the keto lifestyle and I soooooooo want to try making these. I’ve yet to have any dessert since I’ve been doing keto 🙁 this calls for almond flour (which saddens me because MOST keto recipes call for it) but I have a allergy to nuts. You can’t substitute for coconut flour?

    • Paola says:

      Hi LaToya! Unfortunately coconut flour isn’t a great sub here, but have you tried sunflower seed flour? Many readers who are allergic to nuts use it 😉 xo!

  6. Bekah says:

    These are amazing. I took a picture of them. To show how beautiful they are. My kids are in love with these, plus I can give them to my diabetic son with no worries. Love your recipes 😁

    • Paola says:

      LOl that’s amazing Bekah! So happy to hear you and your kids loved these so much! Thank you for sharing with us 😉 xo!

    • Paola says:

      SO happy you liked them Grace! Serving size was calculated per brownie (assuming you cut it up into 16 pieces!) xo!

  7. Hana says:

    I love this recipe! However I made it for my husband to move away from the regular sugar. He didn’t like this at all. Didn’t have the sweet kick that other keto brownies have. I used the xylitol. Would monk fruit be better or is it the same? Also did I do something wrong in the brownie recipe because it was so sticky I couldn’t get it off my whisk. Thank you in advance. 🙂

    • Paola says:

      Hi Hana! Do you think it could be that they weren’t sweet enough for his taste? If he’s just getting into keto, these are definitely not as sweet as regular brownies. You would need to increase the xylitol to 250g to get the sweetness of regular brownies. The batter is also sticky xo!

      • Hana says:

        Well the cheesecake layer had 70g of sweetener and the brownie had 210g. Which would I increase? He did say he didn’t like the cheesecake mix. Maybe that’s where I’d increase by 40-60g?
        Thank you for your reply. Sincerely appreciate it! :))
        Ps.. my daughter said she loves it and she has a sweet tooth. It tastes awsm hard frozen.

        • Paola says:

          Maybe you can then just do the brownies without the cheesecake layer? There’s a recipe link to that one on the page. So you would want to increase the xylitol amount between 200-250g. xo!

    I’ve been doing Keto for about five weeks. I’ve pretty much skipped the sweeteners in every recipe I’ve made and still really enjoyed everything. This seems to call for quite a bit of sweetener though. Do you think it will be ok without?

    • Paola says:

      Hi Cassie! Yeah this recipe is one where you really don’t want to skip the sweetener unfortunately. Maybe check out the cheesecakes for 1? Those would be OK without (particularly the key lime pie one!) xo!
