Keto Avocado Brownies Recipe

Katrin Nürnberger from sugarfreelondoner.com
These chocolate avocado brownies DO NOT taste of avocado! The avocado helps create the fudgy texture we all love in brownies whilst keeping the recipe light and seriously nutritious at the same time. These keto avocado brownies are so healthy you could have them for breakfast (which we did!!).

Ingredients

Frosting

  • 2 ripe avocados 1 scant cup / 220g / 7.76 oz, flesh only
  • ½ cup cocoa powder 43g
  • 5 tbsp powdered Lakanto Golden 50g **** see notes
  • 1 tbsp butter or coconut oil melted

Instructions

BASE

  • Preheat the oven to 180C / 160 C fan / 350 F.
  • Place the chocolate chips in a heat proof bowl and melt on a medium heat over a pan filled with a little water until smooth.
  • Place all the base ingredients in a food processor and blitz until smooth, scraping the sides a couple of times and repeating.
  • Spoon the mix into a greaseproof lined baking tray and level with a spatula.
  • Bake for about 25 - 28 minutes until just a slight jiggle remains in the centre. Allow to cool in the pan for about 15 minutes and then remove to cool at room temperature.

Notes

Net carbs: 3.4g with frosting
Storage: Fridge for up to 5 days or freezer for up to 3 months.
***If you cannot get hold of sugar free chocolate chips, use dark chocolate with 85% or 90%  cocoa solids.
**** I simply powdered Lakanto Golden at home in a food processor. 
You can order Lakanto Golden direct from Lakanto if you're based in the US (get 20% off with my code SUGARFREE). If you're elsewhere, get it from iherb (worldwide shipping).
