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