Super Fudgy Avocado Brownies

Avocado brownies .jpg

I'm OBSESSED. These Brownies are perfection, fudgy, thick, rich and although I love Avocados, I was excited that you can't really tell they are made with avocados. You seriously have to try these and while your at it make this Mint Chocolate Gelato and make it a brownie sundae ;)

Sweetener Options

For this recipe I used Lakanto MonkFruit Sweetener, which tastes like sugar has zero net carbs, zero calories, and is a zero glycemic sweetener. Lakanto is a mix of monk fruit and erythritol that is Keto, Paleo, Vegan, NON-GMO, and All Natural

Erythritol is another one of my go to sweeteners because it is also a naturally occurring sugar alcohol that contains virtually no calories, has a low glycemic impact and taste just like sugar. If you prefer truvia, swerve or stevia you can certainly use those instead, just keep in mind you may need to adjust the amount you use and the net carbs may be different. 

Net Carbs

Keep in mind that when following a keto style meal plan you count net carbs (Total Carbohydrates - Dietary Fibers) This recipe has 9.4 g of carbs and 4.1g fiber, so 9.4-4.1 = 5.3 Net Carbs per brownie.

The recipe makes 16 servings
