A Treat to Smash your Dark Chocolate Cravings

There’s nothing quite like biting into a chewy, dark chocolate brownie. We recommend always having some of these nutrient-packed, sugar free brownies on hand!

Using avocado and almond flour makes this “treat” superfood worthy. Add antioxidant rich cocoa powder and sugar free dark chocolate chips, and all of our chocoholic dreams come true.

We like these slightly under baked, so they are chewy around the edges, and super fudgy in the center.

If you haven’t tried ZenSweet Monk Fruit Sweetener, we think it’s time you do! This special blend of erythritol and monk fruit measures 1-1 to replace sugar in recipes, so you can mix up all your favorite recipes with no hassle of experimenting. It also has no bitter after taste like some other sweeteners, and tastes just like sugar in your baked goods.

How to Make Keto Brownies with Avocado

Step 1: Add the avocado, butter, and eggs to a food processor bowl, and process until the avocado is creamy and no chunks remain. The avocado is the key to making these extra moist and chewy.

Step 2: Add the dry ingredients, including almond flour, cocoa powder, ZenSweet Monk Fruit Sweetener, baking powder, salt, and vanilla. Pulse to combine these ingredients until you have an ultra-fudgy, thick brownie batter.

Step 3: Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper, and then spread the batter into the pan. The dough is sticky, so we recommend using wet hands or a wet spatula to help with this job! If using, sprinkle sugar free dark chocolate chips on top. Otherwise, they are great plain, or you can choose to use chopped walnuts or pecans instead.

Step 4: Bake the brownies for 26-28 minutes, then allow to fully cool before slicing. We recommend chilling them before slicing for the cleanest cuts, but if you can’t wait, we don’t blame you!

Tips for Making Keto Fudge Brownies

Weigh your avocado: Avocados vary greatly in size, so to keep the consistency of these brownies on point, weigh your avocado prior to peeling it. You can cut chunks off your avocado if it weighs more than the 225 grams we recommend. Also, make sure your avocado is very ripe!

Do not Overbake: In general, keto baked goods will dry our faster than regular baked goods because of the low carb ingredients used. Be sure to set a kitchen timer and take these out when they are pulling away from the edges of the pan but still look slightly underbaked in the center. This will keep your brownies ultra moist and fudgy!

Slice after Chilling: Especially if serving to guests, it helps to fully chill these brownies before slicing them. They will be soft while still warm, and firm up the most after being chilled. We like to slice them, place them on a small square of parchment, and freeze them in air tight containers. That way, it’s easy to pull a couple out and let them thaw when the craving hits!
