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.

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)

    • Sure almond meal and almond flour are the same ingredient! Enjoy the recipe it is delicious ! xoxo Carine.

    • Hi Lisa, this brownie recipe makes 16 slices. Each slice contains only 3.7 grams of carbs mainly fibre 1.5g ! So it is a very low carb brownie recipe safe if you are on a low carb diet or keto diet 🙂 Enjoy the chocolate treat! Carine.

  1. What is Healtheries sugar free dark chocolate bites? Chocolate Chips? I can’t find them on any sites in the US.

    Thanks!

    Megan

    • Hi Megan, Healtheries is the brand of sugar free chocolate sold in my country in New Zealand. You can use any brand of sugar free dark chocolate bites in your country or even any dark chocolate>70% cocoa. The more cocoa the less carbs and sugar you will add to the recipe. I enjoy sugar free stevia chocolate because it does not add sugar or carbs to my brownie recipe. In USA you can try this sugar free chocolate brand HERE. Enjoy the recipe ! Carine.

      • Carine,
        can the Lily’s sugar free dark chocolate chips be used in place of the chocolate bites in this recipe and still give a “fudgy” result?

        • Hi, Sure! any chocolate chips will work well, the fudgy texture is mainly coming from the avocado ! That is the magic ingredient. Enjoy the recipe. xoxo Carine.

      • 5 stars
        Hi! I think, for us US folks, maybe “unsweetened” would make more sense than “sugar free”. What we call sugar free here is the chocolate that has artificial sweetener /stevia/etc in it.

        On that note, I’m heading to the store shortly and buying what I need to make this but am going to have to hide the avacado because nobody likes them but me. 😀 Thank you!!

        • Hi Marla, thank you so much for this important info! I live in NZ wand wording are a bit different I guess. I updated the recipe! I hope you enjoy this brownie recipe. My little girl don’t like avocado either and she is eating this brownie like crazy 🙂 It is the best recipe I ever made to hide avocado and make all the family eat it ! Enjoy! See you soon on the blog. xoxo Carine.

    • Hello! I am so happy you love this avocado brownie. As you said, even if you are not a big avocado fan this recipe is super tasty.
