Servings 16 brownies


  • 14 tbsp 1 3/4 sticks butter or coconut oil
  • 7 oz sugar free very dark chocolate (85 to 90% cacao)
  • 2/3 cups Swerve Sweetener or granulated erythritol
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 375F and grease an 8x8 inch baking pan.
  2. In a large saucepan over low heat, melt the butter and chocolate together until smooth.
  3. Add the Swerve Sweetener and stir until well combined.
  4. Let cool 10 minutes.
  5. Whisk in the eggs one at a time.
  6. Stir in the almond flour until batter is smooth.
  7. Spread batter in prepared baking pan. Drop peanut butter in spoonfuls over the surface of the batter and use a knife to swirl in and create a marbled effect.
  8. Bake 18 to 22 minutes, or until surface of brownies is just barely firm to the touch.
  9. Remove and let cool, then cut into squares.

Recipe Notes

*You may find that much of the butter and peanut butter bubbles up and is on the surface of the brownies when you remove them from the oven. It will reabsorb as the brownies cool.
