Paleo and Keto Approved Buckeye Protein Brownies

Written by Armine K — September 10, 2019

Have you ever heard of a Buckeye Brownie? Traditionally, its a decadent chocolate brownie, topped with peanut butter and chocolate. It reminds us a little bit of a gourmet version of a Resee's peanut butter cup. For our most recent recipe, we made a completely paleo and keto approved version of this underappreciated delicacy! Hope you enjoy.


Brownie Ingredients:

  • 6 tablespoons coconut oil
  • ½ cup melted dark chocolate
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • One scoop Rootz Protein Superfood
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder

Topping Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond butter
  • ½ cup honey


Brownie Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350℉.
  • In a large bowl, mix oil, chocolate, coconut sugar, and egg.
  • Add coconut flour, Rootz Protein Superfood, cocoa powder, and mix more.
  • Pour into a greased and/or parchment lined small brownie pan(6”x6”) or loaf pan.
  • Bake for 25 minutes.
  • Take out of the oven and let cool completely.

Buckeye Topping Instructions:

  • Mix together nut butter and maple syrup in a separate bowl


  • Spread buckeye mixture in a thick layer over the cooled brownies.
  • Let set up in fridge for 20 minutes
  • Pour extra melted chocolate over the brownie
  • Let it cool, and enjoy!

    Looks delicious but a couple of concerns: This is not a keto recipe…coconut sugar and honey are not allowed on a keto diet. And the ingredient list says honey, but the instructions say maple syrup.

    My order is on its way, can’t wait to try this! Wondering if an alternative sweetner like allulose or Erythritol can be subbed for coconut sugar?


    Could peanut butter sub for the almond butter?

    Do you know how many carbs per serving?
    I will make this weekend instead of honey I will use Monk fruit.
