A guide to making Keto Brown Butter Bites to help optimize your Carnivore/Keto experience. Recipe inspired by Carnivore Twins on Youtube!


  • 2 Sticks Butter


  1. With stove set to medium, place your stick of butter into a pan.
  2. Melt your butter in the pan and then reduce the temperature to medium low. You will see the butter start to foam at the top. Be sure to stir and scrape the sides.
  3. Keep a close eye on it as once is begins to brown, it can brown very quickly.
  4. If you prefer a milder flavor, remove from heat once it's a golden brown. The darker it gets, the more intense the flavor will be.
  5. Once your butter is browned to your liking, remove the pan from the heat. Let the pan cool for a good 5 minutes.
  6. Once cooled, pour your butter into a glass measuring cup and scrape the pan to get all of the brown bits in there. This is where your flavor is.
  7. If using a mold, and you want consistency in your portions, you can use a teaspoon or tablespoon to measure out and place into your mold. Be sure to stir up the butter in your cup because the brown bits will settle in the bottom. You could also simply pour the butter into the molds.
  8. If you're not using a mold, you can place parchment paper on the bottom of your baking pan and pour the butter in the pan.
  9. Once you've used up all of your butter, place your molds in the freezer. Once frozen, pop out of the mold or break up the sheet and store in a Ziploc bag or storage container and keep in the freezer or fridge.


  • 1 Stick of butter = ¼ cup = 4 ounces = 8 Tablespoons = 24 teaspoons
  • You can use these small candy molds or a large sheet mold!
  • Add flavors to enhance your experience and provide variety to your bites. Here are a few examples: Bacon Bits - Keto Chow (use with unsalted butter only) - Sweetener - Protein Powder
  • Salted vs unsalted butter is a personal choice. Use your favorite butter. You can use half salted/half unsalted as well.
  • The longer you brown your butter, the more intense the flavor, so experiment to find your favorite.

    1. I am hooked! I had mini silicone ice cube trays that were perfect. I added 1/4 tsp salt to the unsalted organic butter and they were perfect. Any lingering craving I might have had for sweets is now gone. Yum!

    2. I made them the other day. I didn’t have any small molds. So i used and Ice tray. WAY TO THICK. Too much butter and not enough of the brown bites. Is using smaller height molds better? I feel I tasted a lot wax. I read somewhere else that they put it in the fridge first then in the freezer and the waxy taste wasn’t there. Any thoughts.
      Thanks for posting

      1. I’ve always used the small molds, placed them direct to freezer and never have a waxy taste. I do use only organic butter which tastes the best to me and has only 1 ingredient. It should taste like butter only with a more nutty or caramel taste. If you are not one of those people who enjoys a bite of butter off the stick then this might not be a great recipe for you. And it could simply be the size of the bites being too large as I think if you used an ice cube tray that would likely be at least 2 tbsp or even 3. Just could be a lot of butter all at once.

    3. Just made my first batch. Cookie-sized mold. Would appreciate any tips on how to transfer to the freezer without losing goodness on the way.

      1. I make sure my silicone mold is on the cookie sheet and then I put the whole thing in the freezer. If you don’t have room for that then put the sheet into the fridge and let them harden as much as possible in there, then pop them out into a freezer bag.

    4. Ever since I watched your Youtube video on these I’ve been intrigued. Brown butter has long been a favorite ingredient of mine in various recipes, but I never thought of eating it plain.
      I don’t have candy molds so I lined a Pyrex baking dish with parchment paper and make more of a thin bark. While the butter was going from light brown to dark brown in the pan, I sprinkled in some plain allulose-monkfruit sweetener as well as some grassfed collagen powder. Mixed it up and poured it into the parchment-lined pan, trying to get the brown bits to evenly distribute, and put it in the freezer.
      That was about 2 weeks ago, and I’m now on my 4th or possibly 5th batch of this bark… I’m completely addicted. :D Slightly cooking the allulose with the butter gave it a remarkable toffee-like taste and little bits of crunchy goodness here and there. It’s a thing of beauty. *_* I might try some bacon bits in my next batch, or possibly some brisket Carnivore Crumbs… but man, it’s so good as-is.

    5. Oh my goodness, I just made the brown butter bites! I took my pretty dark, but not as dark as chocolate, will try next time. I had to lick the spills, haha……..delicious! I can’t wait to eat one. Thank you!

      1. Mix it into the liquid before you pour the liquid into the molds. For the bacon bits the other option is to sprinkle some in the bottom of each mold and then pour in the liquid.

    6. These are great! thanks for walking through it so thoroughly.

      Any tips for getting the brown bits to mix through rather than settle as they cool? Right now I just try to distribute the brown (salty/flavourful) bits into all molds but that doesnt always work well.

        1. I did watch the video and I also use the spoon. I think that is critical to getting even distribution between the bites. I was just hoping someone might have had a physics-defying idea of how to get it to not settle. I am tempted to stir as it cools but I am fairly certain that will be too much work for a marginal improvement. Plus, this recipe is supposed to be an easy go-to so I should not complicate it!
          I will continue spooning into molds since that ensures I get some of the dark bits in every bite anyway.

          1. lol, I love that, physics defying! Who knows, maybe somebody will and share it here! Thanks for your comments!

          2. Tried the mixing until it cooled in the mold didn’t like the looks of it didn’t taste the same mixed in so I remelted more flavor and looks better on bottom

          3. Patricia Contreras

            If you use a plastic squeeze bottle and cut the tip so it’s bigger you can shake it up and get a more even distribution of the brown bits before you squeeze into the mold.

      Hi, Ana! thanks for the tips. I made the BBB yesterday, I loved them! I used salted butter this time, but I was going to try with unsalted butter next time, until I found which is the best for me. I was thinking about to put cinnamon and/or instant coffee, to see the result. Do you think it would work? I will figure out how much, I suppose…

      1. oh I’ve never thought to put coffee in them! These are so easy to flavor up to make them interesting, I kind of just sprinkle different things in and see how they turn out!

      I just made them after watching your video! I made them with salted butter and when the butter started to brown the little bits were very salty! So I just let them settle and cool. I only used the golden part and leave the salty brown bits at the bottom, I guess maybe that would be consider ghee. I decided to add skinny syrup to them to make them more of an after dinner treat. They are delicious!!! Next time I will only use sweet butter!. Thank you!!

    9. How much Keto Chow would you mix with this recipe? Have you tried the bites with Keto Chow before? If so, what flavor did you use? Thank you for sharing your recipe! I can’t wait to try it.

      1. I have heard some people use a whole scoop of KetoChow with 1 stick of butter but personally I prefer 2 sticks to 1 scoop (or package). I have tried the pumpkin spice, chocolate toffee and peanut butter chocolate, all were good! Other people have told me they even like the fruit flavors this way but I have not tried it personally.

      Hi Anita, i have been hearing several Keto/carnivore sites urging us to make brown butter bites. Needless to say, I have been reluctant to give them a try until the other day. I made the plunge.

      When I thought about whose instrucations I wanted to follow, I decided it would be you because you recommended trying Pichana and now for me you can do no wrong.

      I am so happy I watched your video and gave them a try, they are delicious. At first I was thinking , ” they can’t be that good…Oh well, they were.
      Thanks again for another delicious treat.

      1. oh I’m so happy you tried them! I like that they taste like a little melt of toffee in my mouth without the sweet! Enjoy!
