I love a good brownie and these keto dark chocolate brownies with chocolate avocado frosting are one of the best. Crumbly and rich like a good brownie should be yet moist and not too dense. The ideal treat for the keto diet that will help you keep your carb intake and blood sugar levels low.

The smooth creamy chocolate avocado frosting is high in healthy fats and complements the base perfectly. The chocolate frosting is vegan too. Enjoy on their own or with a good dollop of Martina’s Keto No-Churn Vanilla Ice Cream. A match made in heaven. Hope you enjoy guys.

Ingredients (makes 16 servings)

Brownie Layer:
Chocolate Avocado Frosting:
Tips:
  • Instead of the chocolate avocado frosting, you can use chocolate ganache made with 100 g (3.5 oz) 90% dark chocolate, and 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp (90 ml) heavy whipping cream, 3 tbsp (43 g/ 1.5 oz) butter or coconut oil and a pinch of vanilla powder.
  • To make this treat 100% vegan keto, simply use flax eggs or chia eggs instead of regular eggs. To make one flax egg (chia egg), mix a tablespoon of flax meal (or ground chia seeds) with 3 tablespoons of water.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 160 °C/ 320 °F fan assisted, 180 °C/ 360 °F conventional.
  2. Whisk the eggs then add the erythritol and stevia and mix together in a large bowl. Add the melted coconut oil and almond milk. Whisk.

  4. Mix well until smooth. Keto Double Chocolate Brownies
  5. Line a baking tray (17 x 25 cm/ 7 x 10 inch) with greaseproof paper. Spoon in the brownie mix and level to the edges.
  6. Bake in the oven for 25 - 30 minutes until you can insert and remove a skewer without crumbs sticking. Allow to cool. Keto Double Chocolate Brownies
  7. Meanwhile, place all the frosting ingredients in a bowl. Keto Double Chocolate Brownies
  8. Blitz with an immersion blender (or in a high speed food processor) until smooth. Keto Double Chocolate Brownies
  9. Spoon on the frosting to the brownie base, slice and serve. Option to refrigerate if you prefer a harder brownie.
    If you're making a regular chocolate ganache instead: Break the chocolate into small pieces and place in a bowl with the vanilla. Heat the cream and butter over a medium heat and, when hot, pour over the chocolate. Mix until smooth and creamy. Leave to cool down slightly, and then pour over the brownie.

Stevia is very sweet, but leaves such a bitter aftertaste I could not eat  the brownies. I can’t find monk fruit in my area, but fear it would have the same effect. Why is sweet and low excluded?

Hi Lynn, Sweet & Low is artificial sweetener and I personally avoid it due to the side effects of most artificial sweeteners. You can use other options - have a looks at this guide: Top 5 Keto Sweeteners and Sweetener Conversion Chart

I'm looking for a fudge, gooey brownie. If I bake these a shorter length of time will they turn out that way? I can't seem to find a low carb brownie to make my hubby happy.

Hi Robin, I think these are a better fit - they are fudgy: Fudgy Keto Brownies

Can we substitute almond flour to coconut flour(I'm allergic to almonds)..and what it will be in grams?

Reply

Hi Nataliya, coconut flour is more absorbent so you will need to use less, about a third (1/3 cup) of the amount of almond flour, plus you may need to add one more egg if the dough is too thick. I hope this helps!

Is there any way of providing macros without the frosting?

Hi Linda, all recipes posted on my blog can also be found in our app (ketodietapp.com/) where you can clone/modify them to your liking and see how the changes affect nutrition facts. I hope this helps!

These look great but I’m wondering if instead of adding stevia - could I add more confectionary swerve? And, if yes, how much would you suggest? Thx!

Reply

Hi Karen, yes, you can use more Swerve, 1-2 tablespoons more Swerve. Here's a sweetener conversion chart: Top 5 Keto Sweeteners and Sweetener Conversion Chart

Can VitaFiber Syrup be used instead of the yacon syrup?

Reply

Hi Todd, it depends how well you can tolerate IMOs. I avoid sweeteners made with IMOs because they spike my blood sugar (which I tested using a blood glucose meter) but my partner can use them without any issues.

I definitely want to try these!  The description mentions that they're vegan, but they don't qualify unless something is used in place of the 3 eggs.

Thank you for spotting that Rhonda, I forgot to add a note for vegan option so it's there now! 😊
