These flourless and fudgy avocado brownies are simply delicious. Unbelievable how great brownies with avocado can taste!
Hello, brownie-lovers. My avocado brownies recipe is sugar- and flour-free, low carb, and optionally vegan. The fudgy chocolate biteserfect for allergy sufferers too!
Taste and Occasion
These avocado brownies taste fantastic. I would never have guessed - because me and the green fruit, we're not really friends. As an ingredient of salads or guacamole, you can hunt me with it. But in the brownies with avocado, they are at their best.
The fudgy healthy brownies taste just wonderful. I honestly could not believe that something can taste when you delete everything that is usually in pastries. But it actually does! The consistency is stunning: lovely and moist, slightly "crunchy" and chocolaty. Okay, you can't wholly compare the avocado brownies without flour, sugar, and eggs with the American classic. Nevertheless, I am already proud of the recipe. And if you want or need to eat low-carb, have allergies, are on a sugar-free diet and/or eat vegan, you will definitely enjoy the brownies with avocado and banana!
As so often, I have also tried here different alternatives (specifically 4) to find the best for you: once only with vegetable ingredients, once with remarkably few carbohydrates, once with xylitol (-chocolate), once with erythritol (-chocolate drops). You're probably wondering how to make avocado brownies low carb, vegan, gluten-free and delicious 😉 . Understandable.
Here's how to make great flourless and fudgy avocado brownies. In addition to chocolate without sugar, the dough also contains an alternative sweetener, almonds, almond paste, cocoa, and eggs or a vegan substitute. The preparation is effortless - theoretically, you don't even need a food processor. Since the avocado has to be mashed anyway, you can put everything else in the blender afterward.
How to make the Avocado Brownies
Let's start with the preparation: First of all, preheat the oven to 350°F/175°C and line a small square baking pan (at least 8*8 in/ 20*20 cm) with baking paper or grease it. Now, melt the chocolate in a hot water bath or at low temperature in the microwave. Peel the avocados, remove the pit and weigh out about 200g of flesh.
It's time to mash the avocado to a fine purée, then add eggs, almond paste and erythritol and mix until homogeneous. Stir in the slightly cooled chocolate; add almonds, baking powder, vanilla, salt, and cocoa. Now stir just briefly until all the ingredients are mixed.
Healthier chocolate chip cookies that are lower in fat and calories than regular ones but still taste great.
Pour the dough into the prepared pan, smooth it out, sprinkle with chocolate drops and press them in lightly. Bake brownies for about 30-40 minutes, depending on height. They may still be moist and somewhat soft but, of course, should no longer be raw. After that, let cool completely before cutting. It is best to put them in the refrigerator as soon as they are lukewarm.
Very important: Let the flourless and fudgy avocado brownies without sugar and eggs cool entirely before you try them. Preferably in the refrigerator. Or, absolute secret tip, even in the freezer. "Half frozen" they taste the very best to me….
- 130 grams (¾ cup) chocolate drops, without sugar
- 2 pieces avocado, medium
- 2 eggs, or vegan alternatives
- 50 grams (3 tablespoons) almond paste
- 140 grams (¾ cup) erythritol
- 80 grams (¾ cup) ground almonds
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon vanilla pulp, optional
- 1 pinch salt
- 30 grams (⅓ cup) baking cocoa
- 30 grams (2 tablespoons) chocolate drops, without sugar for sprinkling
- Preheat oven to 350°F/175°C. Line a small square baking pan (at least 88 in/ 2020 cm) with baking paper or grease it.

- For the preparation, use a larger food processor, which can be used to both mash the avocado and perform the other preparation steps. Alternatively, a food chopper or blender is suitable, and then a hand mixer or food processor for the dough.
- The avocados should weigh 170 grams, including pit and peel. For me, this resulted in a total of 200g puree.
- For sweetening, I recommend brown erythritol like this or this. You can also use xylitol or, even better, a mixture of ½ erythritol and ½ xylitol. Both have carbohydrates "on paper" but cannot be utilized and are not credited.
- The chocolate can be sweetened with xylitol, erythritol, or stevia, for example (this one or this one), or with just regular sugar.
- For the purely vegetable alternative, you need vegan (low carb) chocolate, of course. You replace the eggs like this: the purée of half a very ripe banana & 1 tablespoon of coconut, almond, canola or sunflower oil & ½ tablespoon of chickpea flour, soy flour or ground psyllium husks & 1 teaspoon of water.
- You can buy the almond paste ready-made or make it yourself.
