Why You’ll Love This Recipe
Avocado and Chocolate make the best combination for Keto recipes! This secret chocolate avocado muffin recipe is a delicious treat for a keto dessert or keto snack.
There are 3 main reasons to make them!
- An easy healthy muffin recipe. 5 simple, wholesome ingredients that we all have in our kitchen.
- A chocolate treat with no guilt. This recipe contains very few calories, only healthy fats from avocado and no sugar, provided you are using sugar-free maple syrup as I do. If not, it is still refined-sugar-free, so it is still a good healthy choice.
- An allergy-friendly muffin recipe. These keto muffins tick all the diet boxes, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, paleo, and keto. Of course, they are not nut-free because they use Almond flour, but if you really can’t have nuts, go for oat flour instead of almond meal.
How To Make Avocado Chocolate Muffins
All you need is 5 simple ingredients, plus 2 optional ingredients.
- Avocado – choose soft, ripe avocados and remove any dark spots if needed.
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
- Almond meal – or almond flour. The difference between almond meal and almond flour is that almond flour is made with peeled almonds while an almond meal is made with whole almonds. Both will work in this recipe. To learn more about keto-friendly flours, read my article on keto flours!
- Liquid sweetener – use your favorite! I love sugar-free maple-flavored syrup from Lakanto. If you are not on a keto diet, other options work, like brown rice syrup or regular maple syrup, but carbs will be much higher!
- Baking soda – This is optional. It works without it, but the texture is slightly dryer and less ‘fluffy,’ so I highly recommend it.
- Sugar-free chocolate chips – you can use fewer chocolate chips – 1/3 cup is enough, but I used 1/2 cup to fully cover the avocado flavor. The less you are using, the more you will taste the avocado! I am using vegan sugar-free chocolate chips to make this recipe vegan-friendly. You can make the recipe with the chips you love.
- Vanilla – again the recipe would work without vanilla, but that is a nice addition to the chocolate flavor!
There are two options for making this recipe, either with a food processor only or with a bowl.
Option 1. Food Processor
It works, but the batter is thick and sticky, so it is not the best option – a lot of clean-up later on!
The batter sticks to the S blade attachment of the food processor, and it is a nightmare to clean. It requires soaking in hot water and rubbing the jug.
Options 2: Food Processor + Bowl
You can also make the avocado cream in the food processor, then combine it with the rest of the dry ingredients into a bowl.
You will have two bowls to clean up, but you will avoid the cleaning of a food processor blade covered with sticky chocolate muffin batter!
Trust me. It is not fun. I was making the recipe this way at first, and it was too messy. So follow the recipe below for success with no mess.
