This chocolate chip keto brownies recipe is a modified recipe from my friend Megan Kelly.  She has an incredible blog and is a Licensed Esthetician specializing in holistic nutrition, woman’s hormones, and spiritual health.

Keto Brownies Ingredients:

½ cup of coconut almond butter

½ cup of chocolate chips

½ cup of mashed avocado

1 tbsp of coconut oil

2 tbsps of chocolate stevia or 2 tbsps of monk fruit

3 tbsps of cacao powder

Yield:  Makes 8 square shaped brownies

Keto Brownies Instructions:

Step #1:  Begin by preheating the oven to 325° F

Step #2:  Take a normal size loaf pan and grease with coconut oil or line w/parchment paper

Step #3:  Combine the nut butter, coconut oil, cacao powder, sweetener and avocado into a blender or food processer and blend up.

Step #4:  Stir in the chocolate chips and pour the entire mixture into the loaf pan.

Step #5:  The batter is going to be very thick. Take the back of a spoon and do your best to level out the batter across the pan as evenly as possible.

Step #6:  Bake for 20 minutes and then take out of the oven and allow to cool.

Special Notes:

Feel free to use whatever nut butter works best for you.  Some options include the coconut almond butter I used, or just a regular almond butter, cashew butter or sunflower seed butter.

If you double the ingredients in this recipe, you can bake it in an 8×8 pan instead of the loaf pan.

Try this out with our coconut whipped cream or vanilla coconut milk ice cream for an amazing, totally keto dessert!

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.

    Can we get a Carb count per brownie?

    • Dr. Jockers April 25, 2017 at 1:30 pm #

      Hey Robert, using the ingredients listed the carb count should be very low and no more than 2-3 grams of carbs per brownie, if not less.

    I am on weight watchers. Could you tell me how many points per bar?

      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!

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

    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.

      Thanks for sharing Leigh!

        I have Pascha 100% cacao, sugar free & organic. From Health Store. 😛

    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?

    • Dr. Jockers November 10, 2017 at 12:58 pm #

      Hey MJ, yes it depends on which brand you buy. Definitely look for sustainable certifications. Normal almond butter would also work!

    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
