Dr Jockers Comments:

The typical brownie recipe is full of gluten, dairy and eggs.  This one is completely free of all of those and tastes amazing!  This brownie recipe is low-carb, ketogenic and fat burning.

The combination of dark chocolate, coconut oil and avocado provides healthy fats, fiber and anti-oxidants to help the body produce good hormones that optimize your metabolism.

Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fat and fat soluble anti-oxidants such as vitamin E and carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin.  It is also a great source of fiber, potassium and magnesium.

Chocolate is rich in PEA’s which boost up our endorphins and support dopamine and serotonin production.  This combo lifts up our mood and gives us more energy, drive and focus.  Chocolate always works best when it is combined with healthy fats like avocado and coconut.

Stevia and monk fruit are our favorite natural sweeteners because they are one hundred times sweeter than sugar and have no effect on blood sugar.

    1. How do you get that please? If you substract the fiber from total carbs that equals 4 net carbs not 2 or 3? Unless you are only eating 1/2 a serving…

  1. Thank you for this healthy dessert recipe and the fabulous info on the ingredients! Appreciate how well you educate and encourage!

    1. Hey Mary!

      I am not exactly sure how to determine this information. I find that rather than looking at the caloric content of foods, it is much more effective to pay close attention to the quality of your calories. Lots of healthy fats and nutrient-dense foods are key!

  2. Hi – Can you advise which chocolate chips to use for the brownie recipe? I’m assuming they shouldn’t have added sugar? Thank you.

  3. If you buy Lily’s chocolate chips in the health food store it will cost 1/3 less than Amazon. In my opinion, Amazon is price gouging on these chips.

  4. Sorry to see that one of the ingredients is “coconut almond butter” which contains palm oil. Is it sustainably sourced I wonder? Can I use plain almond butter with no additives in the brownie recipe?

  5. Thanks Dr for your fabulous & wonderful healthy recipes details , I really did enjoy this hot rich recipe ;
    May you live long Dr jockers !!!!!

  6. The Lily’s chocolate chips have soy lecithin a bad additive! I haven’t found an acceptable chocolate chop anywhere! I use Lindt 90%but it’s hard to break up

    1. I’ve heard recently (Natural News) that most of the chocolate is high in Lead and/or Cadmium… – Do you know what Companies are lowest in Cadmium and lead? (I love dark chocolate… but have been having some problems– itching mostly). ??

  7. I loved this recipe. However, I got a stomach ache afterwards and I think it’s because I don’t usually eat almond butter due to my problems with bloating. Will this recipe work if I just substitute more avocado for the almond coconut butter? Or is there another gut friendly substitution that would work in this recipe? Thank you so much.

    1. You can definitely try it out Katrina! You could also try Coconut Manna for a similar consistency to nut butter although it will alter the taste. Who knows, it might be tasty!

  8. Kari I do very well with pumpkin. If you try the recipe with pumpkin, will you please let me know? I’d love to hear how it turns out. Thank you.

  9. I see other people’s positive reviews and I’m like “seriously”?? I made these and they were so bitter I had to throw them away. They crumbled and wouldn’t stick together either. Sorry.

  10. I made these and they weren’t bad but didn’t turn out fluffy looking like the ones I. The picture. They crumbled easily. I put them in the fridge to harden them because they were so soft and mushy that I couldn’t get them out of the pan without breaking completely apart. Any advice on how to prevent this

  11. This was EXTREMELY sweet…too sweet. Did I read the recipe incorrectly? I thought 2 TBSP of chocolate Stevia was a lot…and it was! Did anyone use less? Like 2 tsp instead of tbsp? Other than that it would have been fabulous! I’ll have to try it again with less Stevia.

  12. Before keto, I didn’t bake brownies as long as what they called for b/c I like them softer (the non keto- friendly kind) but these need to actually be baked at least 10 minutess longer. I’m happy about the ingredients in here, but a tip is to cut back on the chocolate stevia when you make them. Like maybe only 1 tbsp, if that. P.S. I love your videos and posts Dr. Jockers and refer people to you when they see my results and ask abt keto! 🙂
