Low Carb Swedish Brownies

One of my ALL TIME FAVORITE treats when growing up was my grandmother and mother’s Swedish Brownies. On Low Carb 4 Life… I thought I would adjust it and see how it came out. Pretty good. Looks a little different, but same great taste!

Recipe Notes

  • I don’t know if these are really Swedish, but it is what my Grandmother and Mother called them all my life… so that is what I am calling them.  Most people call these “blondies”.  They will forever be Swedish to me!
  • The carbed version calls for buttercream frosting on these.  I don’t like frosting and so I never use it, but there are a lot of good low carb buttercream frostings out there.  The Swerve site, whose confectioners sugar I use has one too https://swervesweet.com/recipes/vanilla-butter-cream-frosting.
  • I like coconut non-stick spray.

    I don’t see cocoa powder listed as an ingredient and, since there is no photo, I can’t determine whether these resemble “Brownies”. Do they taste like a fudgy or cakey brownie?

      Hi Deni,
      These were always called brownies in old family recipes. However, it is more of a blondie with no cocoa. It is actually a good cross between fudgy and cakey, to me. I hope you will try it!

Let me know what you think. I'd love to hear from you!
