Description

 Fudgy keto flourless brownies!  READ FAQs before making these!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs (or Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer)
  • 1 medium, ripe, hass avocado (3/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup melted ghee (lard, coconut oil, or butter substitute)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened, unsalted almond butter, cashew butter (or sunflower seed butter for nut-free)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder 
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup Lakanto  or preferred granulated sweetener 
  • 1/3 cup cacao powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons gelatin (optional, makes them chewy)
  • 1/2 cup low-carb chocolate chips or chopped-up chocolate

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350F.
  2. Line a small baking dish, like a loaf pan with parchment paper.
  3. In the bowl of your food processor combine the avocado, eggs, fat and nut butter and blend until smooth. Then add the remaining ingredients. 
  4. Blend on medium, low power until just smooth. No more than 30 seconds. If you overmix the batter they will be cakey. You can use a spatula to scrape down the mix and then fold it together, mashing up any chunks of avocado left.
  5. Use the spatula to transfer the batter to the baking dish and smooth it out evenly.
  6. Top with fun things.  I’m partial to chocolate chips!
  7. Bake for 25 minutes. Until the edges begin to separate from the sides.
  8. Remove from the oven and let it cool for 15 minutes before handling.
  9. Pick it up, carefully, by the parchment paper and set it on a cutting board.
  10. Cut into 8 squares! Enjoy! Store leftovers in Tupperware in the fridge for up to a week.

 

Recipe Notes:

  • Don’t over-mix.
  • Don’t skimp on the nut or seed butter.
  • If you’re not using Lakanto, you might want to add 1-2 tbsp more sweetener. 
  • For the egg free version, just mix up the egg replacer first and add to food processor.
