Tiramisu or brownies? Why not both! Tiramisu is one of my favorite desserts. This is the one low-carb dessert that will be gone in a blink of an eye!

These keto Tiramisu Brownies are absolutely decadent. You’ve got a fudgy brownie base that’s flecked with espresso then a topping of cream cheese frosting and another sprinkle of espresso powder. You could also use cocoa powder or a mix of espresso powder and cocoa powder for the topping, your choice.

Note that the brownie base won't rise as much and will be dense and rich (just like brownie!). If you prefer a fluffier texture, add 1 teaspoon of gluten-free baking powder and one more egg.

Is Dark Chocolate Healthy?

We used 90% dark chocolate but any dark chocolate with at least 85% cacao is a good low-carb option. Although there is a small amount of sugar, the carb count is low and it's one of the ingredients that can be used in moderation when you follow a healthy low-carb diet. You can also use sugar-free chocolate (dark, milk or even white if you can get it) sweetened with stevia or inulin.

Morning,  can you freeze it ?

Hi Kay, you can freeze the brownie and then make the topping fresh. I wouldn't freeze the whole pie because the cream won't freeze well and will likely split.

This was so good!! I used the modification of adding an extra egg and 1 tsp baking powder to the batter for a more cakey texture, but if I'm honest it's still brownie-like but totally delicious! Maybe next time I'll add two extra eggs. I also used salted butter instead of unsalted, and double cream instead of whipping cream because that's all I had at hand, and added more sweetener to both the filling and topping - I used a mix of monk fruit sweetener and liquid Stevia in addition to erythritol, which was my main sweetener. I also used 2 tsp of real rum instead of extract as, again, that's all I had 😊 The baking time was spot on for my fan forced oven, and this really was a breeze to make. Thank you so much for sharing another great recipe!

Thank you Anu, I'm glad you enjoyed! I like the addition of salted butter, always great with dark chocolate 😊

Thank you for the great recipe. I love tiramisu!
I make my own mascarpone at home. Would I substitute it instead of the cream cheese, or the heavy cream, or both?

I think you can substitute with either the cream cheese or both. If you substitute for both, the frosting will be more rich and creamy 😊
