Why add avocado in brownies?

Most of the times I share all the recipes I make with my family and ask for honest opinions. So this time, after dinner I gave each a keto brownie to taste and asked what they think. They devoured the entire batch without knowing there were avocados in the brownies and asked for more.

Is avocado healthy?

Avocado is a very healthy and creamy fruit with many properties. Do you know that avocados are high in fiber, healthy fats and contain more potassium than bananas? Well, a medium avocado comes with 160 calories, 7g of fiber and only 2g net carbs. There’s are tons of other reasons to include avocado in your meal plan.

I love avocado, and I could eat it in any way possible. But, I know that not all of you enjoy avocado as I do. You can disguise it into these delicious low carb brownies and enjoy the health benefits without eating the green fruit as it is.

Trust me, I love baking and eating healthy brownies. My latest keto brownies post went viral, and many of your tried and liked that recipe.

Avocado gives the brownies a super rich and fudgy texture. Don’t worry about these brownies tasting like avocado because it’s well masked by the dark chocolate, chocolate powder, and sweetener.

How to make the best avocado brownies?

tips for the healthy avocado brownies
  • Make sure your avocados are ripe and creamy. You’ll need 1 1/2 cup of avocado or about two medium-large fruits.
  • Use a high-quality vanilla extract – I love to use this brand because it gives such a pleasant vanilla taste.
  • Use enough cacao powder to avoid the brownies taste eggy.
  • The avocado brownie batter should have a thicker consistency than regular brownie batter. Please watch the video to see exactly how it should look.
  • Adjust the sweetness to taste – Depending on the chocolate you’re using these healthy brownies may have a different level of sweetness. I love them to be not super sweet. Keep in mind that altering the amount of sweetener can change the consistency of the end product.
  • Any granulated sweetener works I recommend using some erythritol blend and do not use STEVIA extract because when baked it tends to become very bitter. If you are following a paleo diet, you can use coconut sugar.

  1. Hello! Made these brownies according to your recipe and they came out looking pretty similar! For my preference, if I were to make this again I would probably use 75% chocolate so it was a bit sweeter. With the known drier texture of almond flour they tasted great with some whipped cream!

  2. Should the swerve sweetener also be subtracted from the total carbs to get a more accurate net carb count? I haven’t made these yet, I’m waiting on a few ingredients to arrive ❤️
