Keto coconut flour brownies that taste like a Terry's chocolate orange are made with a boiled whole orange. They are a moist and delicious brownie that is also gluten free.
I have an almond flour cake recipe which requires a whole orange to be boiled then added to the cake mixture, so I thought that I would try this method for a chocolate and orange brownie recipe. It works wonderfully.
Although oranges are not strictly low carb just one is used in this recipe and the brownie is served into 9 squares. The net carbs are 4g per square.
Making keto coconut flour brownies
I used coconut flour as this would soak up the moisture of the boiled orange without being too dry. I was delighted with the results, as the brownie was indeed moist and not too strong in orange flavour.
The smell of the orange boiling is delightful too! A natural air freshener for your kitchen.
I have also made this adding a few chunks of chocolate into the mixture before popping it into the oven. I've not shown this below as I was trying to keep the carbs as low as I could but please feel free to add extra chocolate to yours!

Chocolate Orange Brownies
- Place the orange in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 1 hour with a lid on.
- Remove the orange from the pan and let cool. Once cool, cut into quarters and remove the seeds. Place the orange in a food processor or blender and blitz until smooth.
- Pre-heat the oven to 350F/180C degrees.
- Line and grease a baking tin (I use a 8 inch square tin).
- In a bowl, place the melted butter, vanilla and eggs and mix well.
- Add the orange mixture and blend until smooth.
- Add the dry ingredients, one at a time into the orange mixture and blend well.
- Pour the mixture into the baking tin, place in the oven and bake for 25 minutes.
- Eat and enjoy!
