Ingredients for Paleo Avocado Brownies
- Avocado – To make sure his brownies taste incredible, choose a ripe avocado that’s super creamy.
- Eggs – Large eggs are needed to bind all the ingredients. If you’re allergic to eggs, replace them with chia egg or flax eggs to make the best vegan avocado brownies.
- Cocoa powder – using high-quality cocoa powder is mandatory for these brownies to taste as rich as possible.
- Almond flour – To replace classic white flour, replace it with blanched superfine almond flour. The uninquie qualitues of almond flour make it unreplaceable in this recipe, so if you want to use a different keto flour, you may have to adjust the entire recipe.
- Sweetener – depending on the lifestyle you’re following, use an appropriate sweetener such as Erythritol, Monkfruit, Allulose, or Coconut Sugar(not low carb!).
- Coconut oil – If you’re not a fan of coconut taste, use refined coconut oil because it has zero coconut taste. You can also use softened unsalted butter.
- Dark chocolate– There are many brands of chocolate that have keto ingredients and are sugar-free. When choosing a low carb chocolate, make sure the percentage of cocoa is above 80%.

- 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.
