- 3 medium eggs (see note for vegan option)
- 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp powdered Erythritol or Swerve (100 g/ 3.5 oz)
- 10 drops liquid stevia
- 1/2 cup melted virgin coconut oil (120 ml/ 4 fl oz)
- 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (60 ml)
- 1 cup almond flour (100 g/ 3.5 oz)
- 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp raw cacao powder (55 g/ 1.9 oz)
- 2 tbsp ground chia seeds (16 g/ 0.6 oz)
- 2 tsp gluten-free baking powder (or 1 tsp cream of tartar + 1/2 tsp baking soda)
- 1 tsp vanilla powder
- 1 heaped tbsp almond butter (32 g/ 1.1 oz)
- 2 ripe avocados (400 g/ 14.2 oz)
- 1/3 cup raw cacao (28 g/ 1 oz)
- 1 tbsp virgin coconut oil (15 ml)
- 1/4 tsp vanilla powder
- 1 – 2 tbsp yacon syrup or 2-4 tbsp powdered Erythritol
- Preheat the oven to 160 °C/ 320 °F fan assisted, 180 °C/ 360 °F conventional.
- 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.
- Add the ground almonds, cacao, chia seeds, gluten free baking powder, vanilla and almond butter.
- Mix well until smooth.
- 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.
- Bake in the oven for 25 – 30 minutes until you can insert and remove a skewer without crumbs sticking. Allow to cool.
- Meanwhile, place all the frosting ingredients in a bowl.
- Blitz with an immersion blender (or in a high speed food processor) until smooth.
- 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.)
- Once chilled, slice into 16 squares.
- Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Unfrosted brownies can be stored in the fridge for up to a week.
- Enjoy! 🙂
- 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.
