Brownies are one of those keto desserts / Paleo desserts that quickly bring you back to your childhood. Do you remember your mom making a batch that filled the whole house with that enticing chocolate scent?
Chocolate is actually good for you, helping to alleviate depression and boost mood. Dark chocolate is full of antioxidants and phytochemicals, and when you eat it, it stimulates the release of neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin. These endorphins help us lower our stress levels and feel good, induce a happy euphoric feeling that banishes fat storing, cortisol-spiking stress. For this reason, dark chocolate is a great comfort food for more reasons than just taste!
And now that we have healthier sweeteners, you can enjoy them in sugar free desserts and stay in healthy ketosis. Of all the Paleo desserts and keto desserts recipes on our site, it’s the brownies that people get really excited about. I absolutely love them with Kebby’s Ice Cream.
I like walnuts on my ice cream and in my brownies. Recently, researchers began studying persons who ate more nuts, especially phytochemical-packed walnuts and pecans. People who eat nuts every week tend to live 4 years longer than other people. Did you know that? Check out more of our Paleo desserts today!
