How to Make Chocolate Avocado Brownies
The first thing you will need to do is preheat your oven to 350F.
In a separate bowl, add the butter and Swerve and mix using a hand mixer. Add in the eggs, avocado, vanilla and coffee extracts, continue to mix until combined. Next, add the melted chocolate and mix until well incorporated.
Once you have all of you wet, ingredients mixed, add them into your dry ingredients and stir together just until combined.
Finally, you will pour the mixture into a (9 x 9) square glass or ceramic baking dish and bake for 30-35 minutes.
You are going to want these to cool completely before cutting them into 12 squares. For a little extra sweetness, sprinkle each of these delectable low carb brownies with Swerve confectioners for a little extra sweetness! ENJOY!
Tips for Making a Perfect Chocolate Avocado Keto Brownie Recipe
The more ripe the avocado, the more likely you’ll taste it in this recipe. Using avocados that just become ripe, really allows the cocoa powder flavor to be front and center!
When baking in general, you always want your eggs to be room temperature. This ensures they mix easily and evenly.
To make sure your chocolate avocado brownies cut into nice and clean squares, wait until they have completely cooled before cutting.
When baking these low carb brownies, timing is important. Start checking for doneness 5 minutes before time is up.
