Avocado brownies

What Are Avocado Brownies?

Avocado Brownies are like regular brownies, except they are loaded with avocados to bind the ingredients and create the classic brownie texture.

If you are wondering how these keto brownies taste, you’re not alone! Baking with avocados is surprising but the outcome is marvelous.

Let me tell you this, baked avocado has no flavor.

As a result, these avocado brownies have no avocado taste at all. You won’t believe it, but avocados make the best fudgy brownies on earth!

Is Avocado Keto-Friendly?

Avocado has only 3.5 grams of net carbs per 100 grams and 15 grams of healthy unsaturated fat. Without a doubt, this makes this recipe the best keto avocado brownies!

Avocado is an incredibly creamy ingredient to add fudgy texture to brownies. You don’t want to miss that, this is even better than butter.

How To Make Keto Avocado Brownies

On top of its amazing fudgy texture, these healthy avocado brownies are easy to make in a blender.

Ingredients

This avocado brownie recipe is made of less than 10 wholesome ingredients, including:

  • Unsweetened dark chocolate – sugar-free stevia-sweetened chocolate baking bars (or chips) or 85% cocoa chocolate.
  • Extra virgin coconut oil – or any vegetable oil you prefer, butter works as well.
  • Almond meal or almond flour – both options work and are keto-friendly flours.
  • Ripe avocado – avocado is a keto-friendly vegetable that adds fudgy texture to this brownie. Of course, you must use ripe avocado to succeed in this recipe to avoid lumps.  My tip for ripening an avocado fast is to store it near a banana, at room temperature. The ethylene that bananas release will ripe the avocado faster. Obviously bananas are not keto-friendly, but they are useful to ripen avocados naturally.
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Baking soda
  • Vanilla extract
  • Sugar-free crystal sweetener – Monk fruit crystal or erythritol is perfect. For other keto-friendly sweeteners, read my sweetener guide!

Making The Brownie Batter

Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (180°C). The recipe is so quick to do that your oven might not be at temperature by the time the batter is ready.

The first step consists in melting the dark chocolate. You can either melt it in the microwave with coconut oil, or in a saucepan over medium heat.

Both techniques work fine, pick the one you prefer!

Then, add all the avocado brownies ingredients to the just of a high-speed blender: avocado, eggs, crystal sweetener, almond flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.

Process at high speed until the batter is smooth and thick.

Line a 9-inch square pan with lightly oiled parchment paper and pour the brownie batter with a spatula.

Baking The Brownies

Bake the Keto Avocado Brownies for 25 to 30 minutes at 350°F (180°C).

You know it’s ready when a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean or almost.

Let the brownies cool down for at least 10 minutes in the pan. This is essential to let the bottom finish cooking.

Then, transfer the avocado brownies to a cooling rack for another 30 minutes of cooling at room temperature.

Storage Instructions

These Keto Avocado Brownies can be stored for up to 4 days in the pantry in an airtight container.

You can also freeze individual squares in an airtight container for up to 3 months.

Thaw the slices in the fridge and pop them in the air fryer to reheat them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Bake With Frozen Avocados?

Absolutely, place the thawed avocados in the blender, it would work the same.

Can I Use Coconut Flour?

No, this recipe wouldn’t work with coconut flour. You can swap the almond flour for sunflower seed flour or oat flour though.

Oat flour isn’t keto-friendly so the carbs would be higher.

Can I Make It Vegan?

No, this recipe needs an egg. You can try my Vegan Keto Brownies instead.

Can I Use Ghee Instead Of Coconut Oil?

Yes, ghee or butter can be used as a substitute for coconut oil.

Ingredients

Glazing and toppings

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to fan-forced 350°F (180°C).
  • Line a square 9-inch brownie pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a small saucepan, add the dark chocolate bites and coconut oil. Bring to medium heat until fully melted. You can also place both ingredients into a bowl and microwave on high in 30-second bursts until fully melted. Set aside.
  • In your food processor with the S blade attachment, add all the brownie ingredients (except the glazing one): ripe avocado flesh, eggs, sweetener, almond flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, vanilla extract, and melted chocolate.
  • Process for 30 seconds to 1 minute or until all the ingredients come together and you obtain a thick brownie batter.
  • Transfer the batter into the prepared square pan. Spread the batter evenly in the pan using a spatula.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle of the brownie comes out clean.
  • Cool down for 10 minutes in the pan before pulling out the brownie from the pan using the parchment paper to pull out the brownie easily.
  • Transfer the brownie onto a cookie rack to cool down until room temperature.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the chocolate glazing and toppings. In a small saucepan, under medium heat, melt the sugar-free chocolate bites with coconut oil until fully liquid and shiny. Stir often to prevent the chocolate from burning.
  • Use a teaspoon to drizzle the melted chocolate on top of the brownie and decorate with crushed pecan nuts and sea salt – optional.
  • Cut the brownies into 16 squares and store the brownies in the pantry in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
Sugar-free sweetener: if your erythritol brand doesn’t dissolve well you can pre-dissolve the sweetener with 4 tablespoons of boiling water before adding to the food processor.
Sweetener replacement – not sugar-free: you can replace the erythritol with the same amount of unrefined sugar like coconut sugar or muscovado sugar. This will raise the carbs of this recipe, but if you can eat sugar it will make healthy and delicious fudgy avocado brownies as well.

    145 Thoughts On Keto Avocado Brownies (3.5g Net Carbs)
    1 2 3 4
  1. I’m curious if I can sub protein powder for some of the almond flour to up the protein. Has anyone tried this?

  2. 5 stars
    I have made this dessert twice now and keep coming back for more….amazing! Definitely cannot taste the avocado and it is nice and zesty with the limes. I did replace cashews with walnuts and used powdered natural sweetener in the base as well as the filling, came out great. Thank you 🙂

  3. Hi, I have some frozen avocado slices that were covered in lemon juice, could I thaw them and use them in this? Would the texture or the small amount of lemon juice be a problem?

  4. 5 stars
    Love these brownies , my 7 year old hates cakes but these were a massive hit !
    Will definitely be making them again . Thanks for the recipe.

  5. 5 stars
    Amazing! My blender wasn’t up to the task so had to mix by hand but kids had no idea this was a healthy brownie was healthy! The perfect crime lol
    Really delicious thank you

  6. 5 stars
    Just made them tonight and they were delicious!!! 1 small brownie satisfied my sweet tooth. Thanks for the amazing recipe!!!

  7. Are you sure you only use 1/2 cup almond flour? This doesn’t seem like it will make 16 brownies.

  8. 5 stars
    Quick question, can I use gluten free flour instead of almond ? I have someone with an almond allergy, thanks!

  9. 5 stars
    Thank you for confirming this- I made them last weekend and they were amazing. My husband loved them- I’m making them again today 🙂

  10. 5 stars
    I’ve been making a range of your cakes since changing to a keto diet and they’ve all been tasty and by far the best keto cake recipes around. My husband has a nut allergy though so I have to substitute coconut flour for almond flour. Do you have advise in relation to the quantity of coconut flour to use instead of almond. It’s so much more absorbent so it’s always a little trial and error for me… planning to make the brownies today 🙂

    • I am so happy to have you here! Coconut flour is 4 times more absorbent than almond flour so usually you may need 4 times more. It means if the recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of coconut flour you should need about 4 tablespoons almond flour. Adding a touch of xanthan gum like 1/4-1/2 teaspoon to the batter (sprinkle it at the end into the batter) this help adding texture to the cake/brownie as almond flour will never add the same texture as coconut flour. I hope it helps. Enjoy, XOXO Carine

  11. Hi! SO many raving reviews. would love to try them! do you know what would be the sub for eggs? for a vegan option. thanks!

    • This recipe won’t work with egg substitute because keto flours are so low in carbs and doesn’t contains starch so they never form a cake or brownie if combined with egg replacer. Only some keto cookies recipes can work with egg replacer. If I don’t provide an option egg-free its because this won’t work. Enjoy, XOXO Carine

  12. 5 stars
    I’ve been looking and trying out so many different recipes to try and indulge my sweet tooth, but nothing I’d tried had a good flavour and texture. Until now! These brownies are soooooo good!!

  13. Can you use Ghee or butter instead of coconut oil? My husband hates the taste of coconut. If so is it the same amount?

    • Sure, it will work very well too, same amount. However, note that refined coconut oil has no coconut flavor ! Its the unrefined coconut oil that taste like coconut. Enjoy the recipe, XOXO Carine

  14. Hi Carine! I do not have monkfruit/any other kind of sweetener and was wondering if I could replace with a sugar-free maple syrup instead? Thanks!

    • It will probably work with same amount of sugar free maple syrup yes. The batter will be slightly runnier tho. Enjoy, XOXO Carine

  15. 5 stars
    Best keto brownies! I normally don’t eat avocado, but these are amazing. You don’t taste the avocado and these are even beter than normal brownies. I added walnuts and pecan nuts in the mixture.

    I just started my journey trying to find sugarless desserts.

    Can these be frozen? I’m the only one who will be eating them. Too much for one person to eat up in 4 days! Lol
    I made these yesterday. Not too bad at all for someone like me who is cutting down on sugar and carbs.
