Recipe originally shared by my friend Lisa at Low Carb Yum.

A low-carb muffin recipe that calls for avocado. Really? It’s not as odd as it sounds! Packed with healthy fats, avocado makes these chocolatey muffins so rich and moist.

Ingredients (makes 8 muffins)

Dry ingredients:
Wet ingredients:
  • 2 medium ripe avocados (250 g/ 8.8 oz)
  • 15 to 20 drops stevia
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp coconut milk or heavy whipping cream (30 ml)


  1. Preheat the oven to 175 °C/ 350 °F (fan assisted), or 195 °C/ 380 °F (conventional). Halve, deseed, and peel the avocados and place them into a food processor. Pulse until smooth and creamy.
  2. Sift together the coconut flour, almond flour, and cacao powder. Add the erythritol, cinnamon, baking soda, and cream of tartar and mix well.
  3. Add the liquid stevia, eggs, coconut milk, and pureed avocado and process until well combined.
  4. Finally, roughly chop the chocolate and add to the mixture. Reserve a few pieces for topping.
  5. Scoop the muffin batter into a silicon muffin pan or a regular muffin pan lined with paper cups greased with a small amount of coconut oil or ghee.
  6. Top with the reserved chocolate pieces and place in the oven. Bake for about 25 minutes or until the tops are crispy and the muffins are firm.
  7. Remove from the oven and let the muffins cool on a rack before serving. Keep at room temperature covered with a kitchen towel for up to three days or place in an airtight container and refrigerate for longer.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Absolutely love this recipe and took a chance and added about .75 ounces of fresh mint diced up with a little mint extract and that took them to a new level if anyone likes mint is suggest you try it


Thank you Jeremy - mint sounds like a wonderful addition!


Can i substitute the Almond flour with defatted sesame flour?


You can but you'll have to add 1-2 more eggs and/or coconut milk. I haven't tried that but I know that sesame flour is more absorbent than almond flour.


Your cookbook is available on iBooks but the product page doesn't link to that or even mention it. Why is that?


Thank you for letting me know Karen, we'll add a link to iTunes.


So sad I didn't know this earlier! Since I live in The Netherlands I didn't want to wait for the book for two months so I ordered the e-Book on for 23,95 euro's! I don't have a lot of money but are so excited about your recipes that I decided to order it along with the app. Had I known about the iBook..... 😢


I'm sorry about that Boxie. At least I'll add 10 new recipes in the Starter package in the App - just wait for the next release! 😊


I will! 😊 Thank you.


just came across this blog. Very cool. I do have a question too. Started Kato diet about 2 weeks ago, had a cheat day like 5 days ago and got a really bad migraines for last 3 days, never had one before. Now I can't function properly. Do you ever come across something like that?
Thank you


Hi Roma, I suggest you avoid "cheat days". In my experience, the only make things worse. Here is more about common mistakes: How To Low Carb: 15+ Common Weight Loss Mistakes Hope this helps!
