Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup zero-calorie sweetener I used Swerve. Swerve measures cup for cup like regular, table, refined sugar. If you use something like stevia, you will have to convert this serving into a much smaller allotment. See cooking note for the amount of sugar used.
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder I prefer cacao powder
  • 1 1/2 cups ripe avocados, use enough avocado to fill 1 1/2 cups For me this was 1 1/2 avocados
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup natural almond butter You can also use organic, natural peanut butter
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cacao nibs, sugar-free chocolate chips, nuts optional for sprinkled topping

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spray brownie pan with cooking oil. If using a baking dish, use an 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 with parchment paper. 
  • Add all of the ingredients to a blender.
  • Blend for 30-60 seconds until the batter is smooth. Depending on the type of blender or food processor you use, you may have to blend for about 20 seconds, open the blender, and stir the ingredients, and then blend for an additional 10 to seconds. The batter will be thick and smooth. Make sure to scrape down the sides.
  • Spoon the batter into the brownie pan or baking dish. 
  • Flatten the batter with a knife or spoon. Sprinkle with any toppings. Sugar-free chocolate chips or nuts work well. I used cacao nibs.
  • Bake for 22 -25 minutes. Mine were ready around 23 minutes. You can use a toothpick to check if the brownies are done. Insert the toothpick in the middle of a brownie. Remove it and examine if the toothpick has any uncooked batter.
  • Cool for 10-15 minutes before removing the brownies from the pan.

Notes

If you prefer really sweet brownies add additional sugar. 1/2 cup produces a light sweet taste, add more sugar if you prefer really sweet.
