These keto chocolate avocado brownies are delicious and packed with healthy fats. Using the avocado as the main source of moisture and fat for this recipe is the key ingredient for a dessert packed with nutrients.
If you prefer a completely smooth texture, use a food processor. Add the wet ingredients and blend it until it turns into your preferred texture. I don’t mind the little pieces of avocado, and after its all baked you will barely see the difference.
These keto brownies can be kept in the fridge for a week so you can indulge in it for a couple of days. I used 90% dark chocolate but anything over 75% will also work. The most keto-friendly option will be Lily’s Dark Baking Chocolate Chips with zero sugar added.
To add a little more sweetness, I add the erythritol but that can also be substituted by stevia. However, the erythritol will give the recipe more volume. Just make sure you do the proper conversion. The end result will be just sweet enough so if you prefer a little sweeter you can add a little more sweetener.
You can also replace coconut oil with butter too. If your brownies come out extra moist, you can add extra cocoa powder to get the chocolatey fudges.

How to make avocado brownies without flour?
To make avocado brownies without flour, blend ripe avocados with cocoa powder, eggs, sweetener of your choice, vanilla extract, and baking soda until smooth. You can replace regular flour with almond flour or coconut flour. Pour the mixture into a greased baking dish, optionally adding sugar free chocolate chips or nuts for extra texture and flavor. Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F for about 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Store avocado brownies in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days for the best freshness.

What does avocado replace in brownies?
In brownies, avocado replaces butter or oil. This substitution provides the necessary fats for a moist texture, but with healthier monounsaturated fats from the avocado. It also adds creaminess and can enhance the richness of the brownies without altering the chocolate flavor significantly.
