Non-Dairy Avocado Brownies Keto and Paleo Friendly

Non-Dairy Avocado Brownies Keto and Paleo Friendly

Cutting flour and sugar out of your diet? It can be a huge change to get used to! Instead of going cold turkey, try these yummy avocado brownies that can fit easily into your paleo or keto diet.

While I am not following the paleo or keto diet currently, I have in the past. I had a really hard time getting past my love of baking.

You see, flour is the building block of baking and it is pretty much verboten on both keto and paleo. Using coconut flour here allowed me to still enjoy delicious chocolatey brownies and stick to a keto or paleo eating plan.

 Avocado Brownies Keto and Paleo Friendly

Unfortunately, while trying to replace bread and treats, many people load up their diets with a bunch of weird ingredients. Thankfully, these delicious avocado brownies are weird ingredient free!

Overall, the brownies were very good and very chocolatey. Evan said they weren’t as good as regular brownies but that he still like them.

I think they would be delicious with vanilla ice cream (though that kind of negates the whole non-dairy thing doesn’t it….oh well, dairy doesn’t bother me so ice cream it is!). Melding a superfood like avocados into a chocolatey treat…how can you go wrong?

Can the coconut flour and gluten free baking powder be replaced 1:1 with normal/whole wheat flour and regular baking powder?

I haven't tried it so I'm not really sure.

I made these today! Husband and grandson loved them. My husband has had to go paleo for medical reasons. So mice to have a fix for his sweet tooth.

I made these last night with a few tweaks: Used 1 TBSP honey instead of 1/2 cup. Added 1/2 ripe banana and a few apple juice-infused dried cranberries. Also added some pecan pieces, but they were way too small and barely noticeable. Next time, I'll use bigger nut pieces. For the chocolate, I used 100% cacao baker's chocolate (4 pieces of the bar, which looked like ~1/2 cup).

They were really good. My 4 yr old ate them. My aunt felt like they could've used more honey, but my intention is to get my taste buds used to less sweetener. In the past few weeks, I made sweet potato brownies (yum!), beet brownies (yuck), and these. I really enjoyed these and the sweet potato brownies and next will look for a recipe that combines the two.
