Healthy Chocolate Avocado Brownies Recipe - Keto & Paleo

Avocados, brimming with nutrients and healthy fats, might not be everyone’s favorite. However, if you’re aiming to include more avocados in your diet, a creative solution is to blend them into delicious keto desserts. Avocado can substitute for butter or even eggs in many recipes, lending a creamy texture to desserts like my beloved sugar-free chocolate avocado mousse.

I’m eager to show you exactly how to make these flourless avocado brownies because once you try them, you’ll want to enjoy them every day. These low-carb avocado brownies are moist, chocolatey, and incredibly rich.

I am a huge fan of chocolate, in fact, I’ve always been. I could devour a batch of brownies in seconds. And I love baking!

That’s why on this blog, you’ll see lots of different brownie recipes, like classic keto brownies, coconut flour brownies, and even cheesecake brownies or keto peanut brownies. What can I say? What can I say? I love brownies a lot!

Why Add Avocado In Brownies?

Adding avocado to brownies creates an incredibly rich and fudgy texture that’s simply irresistible. Don’t worry about tasting the avocado; its flavor is beautifully masked by the dark chocolate, cocoa powder, and sweetener, resulting in a decadent treat that’s pure indulgence.

Ingredients Needed

ingredients for keto 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 – Opt for high-quality cocoa powder to infuse your brownies with a rich, deep chocolate flavor that’ll have you coming back for more.
  • Almond flour – To replace classic white flour, replace it with blanched superfine almond flour. The unique qualities 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 your dietary preferences, choose an appropriate sweetener such as Erythritol, Monkfruit, Allulose, or Coconut Sugar (though note that the latter is not low carb). Finding the right sweetener for your taste buds is key to achieving the perfect balance of sweetness in your brownies.
  • Coconut oil – If you’re not a fan of the taste of coconut, opt for refined coconut oil, which has no coconut flavor. Alternatively, you can use softened unsalted butter as a delicious alternative.
  • Dark chocolate – When selecting dark chocolate for your brownies, look for brands that offer keto-friendly options that are sugar-free and contain a high percentage of cocoa (preferably above 80%). This ensures that your brownies are indulgent without being overly sweet, making them a guilt-free treat for any occasion.

Tips for the Best Keto Avocado Brownies

  • Make sure your avocados are ripe and creamy. You’ll need 1 1/2 cups 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 prevent the brownies taste eggy.
  • The avocado brownie batter should be thicker than regular brownie batter. Watch the video to see the exact consistency.
  • Adjust the sweetness to your taste preference. Depending on the chocolate used, these healthy brownies may vary in sweetness. I prefer them to be moderately sweet. Note that altering the sweetener amount can affect the consistency.
  • Any granulated sweetener works; I recommend using an erythritol blend. Avoid using STEVIA extract, as it tends to become bitter when baked. For those following a paleo diet, coconut sugar is a suitable option.

Most of the time 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.

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 you tried and liked that recipe.

Recipe Rating

    1. I used 90 grams of 100% dark chocolate. Any chocolate with 85% or more cocoa will work to make these avocado brownies.

  1. 3 stars
    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 ❤️
