How to Make Chocolate Avocado Brownies
Preheat your oven to 350°F.
Add the chocolate chips to a microwave safe bowl and melt in the microwave. Start with 30 seconds, remove, stir and continue in 10 second increments until the chocolate is fully melted. Then set aside to cool.
In a small bowl, add the hot water along with the instant coffee and whisk until dissolved. Set aside to cool.
In the bowl of a food processor, add in the avocado and pulse until smooth.
Add in the remaining ingredients except the almond flour and cocoa powder, then continue mixing until well combined.
Add in the almond flour and cocoa powder, then mix just until combined. The batter will be very thick.
Allow the brownies to cool completely at room temperature before cutting into them.
How to Freeze Avocado Brownies
I not only try to meal prep as often as I can, I also try to dessert or snack prep when I can. These Keto brownies are seriously the most perfect freezer friendly dessert.
This is a super moist and fudgy like gluten free brownie recipe so you'll want to make sure they are wrapped really well. In order to maintain their fresh flavor, once the brownies have completely cooled, double wrap them, making sure the plastic wrap is touching the whole surface.
They freeze well for up to a couple of months. You can thaw them right on the kitchen counter.
Tips for Making a Perfect Chocolate Avocado Keto Brownie Recipe
- Room temperature eggs: When baking in general, you always want your eggs to be room temperature. This ensures they mix easily and evenly.
- Almond flour brownies need to cool: To make sure your chocolate avocado brownies cut into nice and clean squares, wait until they have completely cooled before cutting.
- Check for doneness: Brownie batter is rather dense and because it is dark in color, it can be a little deceiving when they are done. When baking these Keto Avocado Brownies, timing is important. Start checking for doneness 5 minutes before time is up.
- Oops! Things can happen, so if you over-bake them, no worries. You can just drizzle them with this salted caramel sauce or crumble them into this delicious vanilla chocolate chip ice-cream!
What are the Health Benefits of Avocado?
The star ingredient in these gluten free brownies makes them a delicious but also a healthy snack.
Did you know that avocados are considered a super food on the Keto diet? It's no wonder because they're rich in healthy fat, omega-3 and very low in net carbs. Avocados are high in monounsaturated oleic acid, a heart-healthy fatty and are loaded with fiber.
And did you also know that avocados have 60% more potassium than bananas? How great is that?!
There are so many wonderful benefits to incorporating avocado into you diet. Check out this article of Healthline to read more about just how good they are for you.
