  1. Preheat oven to 300F and grease a 9x13 inch baking pan well.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, sweetener, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
  3. In a medium saucepan, melt butter and unsweetened chocolate together over low heat, stirring until smooth. Add to almond flour mixture.
  4. Stir in eggs and vanilla extract until well combined. Add just enough water to make the batter pourable. Pour batter into prepared baking pan and smooth the top.
  5. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, until just set in the center. 25 minutes for more fudgy brownies, 30 minutes for more cakey brownies. Remove and let cool completely.


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine cream, egg yolks, sweetener, and butter. Cook until thickened, about 10 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, coconut, and pecans. Sprinkle surface with coconut flour and whisk briskly to combine (this helps the butter not settle out).
  3. Spread topping over cooled brownies and drizzle with melted chocolate. Let set 20 minutes before cutting into bars.
