 ½ tsp baking powder
 ¼ tsp salt

 2 oz unsweetened chocolate chips
  cup powdered erythritol
 ¼ cup unsweetened dark cocoa powder

Preheat oven to 350°F and line a square baking dish with damp parchment paper.


Microwave 4 oz of the unsweetened chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl at 30-second intervals until melted.


In the same bowl, add ricotta cheese, egg, monk fruit, espresso, vanilla, cocoa powder, flour, heavy cream, baking powder, and salt and mix until well combined.


Once combined, stir in remaining chocolate chips.


Spread onto a baking dish for 30 minutes.
Note: Don't over bake - mixture will still be wobbly when finished baking. Cool before frosting.


For the frosting, melt the butter, erythritol, and chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat.


Once melted, remove from heat and stir in cocoa powder and heavy cream.


Spread the frosting over the keto ricotta brownies and serve.
