Just when you thought I was finished posting dessert recipes using avocado….

In walked these flourless avocado brownies.

Our history with avocado-based desserts includes Key Lime Vegan Ice Cream , 4-Ingredient Chocolate Mousse, Vegan Key Lime Popsicles, Dairy-Free Avocado Fudgesicles …and more!

These sultry lumps of avocado lovin’ are so easy to make and are a marvelous healthier treat. They are soft and chewy with an epic fudgey goo factor (if you add the chocolate chips). 

The ingredients needed to prepare these brownies are straight-forward!: one ripe avocado, eggs, almond butter, coconut sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, baking powder, and chocolate chips (optional…but mandatory).

I know what you’re wondering, and no, you can’t taste the avocado or the almond butter. They don’t have the an identical flavor and texture to regular brownies, but they are sure to please!

If you’ve been around The Roasted Root for a few years, you may remember my Dairy-Free Fudgesicles , 4-Ingredient Paleo Avocado Chocolate Mousse. or my Vegan Key Lime Popsicles. What these desserts have in common is they are all made with the same all-start ingredient: Avocados!

While it may seem strange to make a dessert using avocados, I pinky promise you, avocados make an incredibly mouth-watering creamy chilled or frozen treat. In addition to how tasty the result turns out, I love knowing the treat contains healthy fats from the California avocado and is made using cleaner ingredients than store-bought ice cream.

When combined with full-fat coconut milk, cocoa powder, and a liquid sweetener, California avocados make a mean chocolate ice cream!

Can you taste the avocado in this keto chocolate ice cream? Not in the slightest! Because avocados have such subtle flavor, they are easily masked by bolder flavors like cocoa. You can’t tell this ice cream is dairy-free! It turns out so creamy and custardy with a similar consistency to gelato.

For this particular recipe, we’re going the keto route using a sugar-free liquid sweetener to keep the recipe low-carb. There are plenty of options for sweeteners, so be sure to read the notes below!

Let’s hop to it!
