26 Easy Avocado Recipes for Ketogenic Baking
Amp up your ketogenic baking with these delicious avocado recipes!
Adding avocados to your diet will improve its overall quality, and possibly reduce the risk of metabolic syndrome.
However, some people do not like the subtle flavor or soft texture of avocados. That’s where these yummy Ketogenic avocado baking recipes come in handy!
When you’re choosing avocados to use in your baking be sure to use ripe ones. Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Jessica Fishman Levinson, RDN says, “Avocados usually turn from light green to dark green to black when ripening, but some varieties don’t change color, so you can’t rely on color alone to determine if the fruit is ripe. Instead, gently squeeze the avocado in the palm of your hand to check for ripeness. Ripe, ready-to-eat fruit will be firm yet yield to gentle pressure.”
Whether you’d like to make a Keto dessert or snack, you’ll find plenty of options on this list. Naturally, everything is low-carb – but you’ll also find dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free and vegan recipes. Truly something for everyone!
Avocados include plenty of healthy fats, and their smooth, almost velvety texture is perfect for baking. Avocado and chocolate love each other, which is why you’ll find some unbelievably mouthwatering, fudgy brownies on this list.

These amazing brownies are a great way to introduce the healthy fats from avocado into the family’s diet, and even if they don’t normally like it, the taste disappears in the brownies and no-one will know it’s there!

If you like your brownies fudgy and gooey in the middle then this recipe is perfect for you! There is no flour involved and the texture comes from the avocado. This is a gluten and dairy free recipe that makes wonderful brownies to enjoy with your afternoon coffee or as a dessert. There is an option to add chopped nuts on top but I prefer to use sugar free chocolate chips for that touch of decadence!

Ingredients: unsweetened dark chocolate, butter, ghee or extra virgin coconut oil, eggs, avocado, coconut milk or heavy whipping cream, Stevia extract, almond flour, coconut flour, cacao powder, powdered Erythritol or Swerve, gluten-free baking powder, sea salt.
The brownies in this keto recipe are quite thick, so I would suggest cutting them into smaller pieces, but they are so good that you could just treat yourself and go for it! If you can leave them to cool, which can be difficult as they smell amazing, then they won’t be crumbly. If you like toppings on your brownies, then dust them with cocoa powder or cinnamon for an extra hit of flavor.

I am so glad that there are so many great brownie recipes online now as they are a staple in our household! These ones would be great for a Halloween party or for St. Patrick’s Day with their vivid green frosting, made from mint and avocado. Using vivid colors in foods can also be a great way to get the kids to eat healthier snacks and cakes but keeping the carbs to a minimum.

Here is another low carb recipe that uses avocado to increase the fudgy quality of the brownies, but don’t worry, you can’t taste the avocado! These have a firm crust and a soft and indulgently rich center. You can top these with extra chocolate chips if you want to increase the chocolate flavor. Store in an airtight container but not in the fridge as this makes them go hard.

– Jane’s Healthy Kitchen
Ingredients: almond meal, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cacao/cocoa/carob powder, coconut butter, eggs, vanilla, apple cider vinegar, avocado, sweetener, zucchini, nuts.
Zucchini in baked goods works along the same lines as avocado to give a rich and creamy texture and bind the other ingredients together. The flavor of the vegetables does not feature strongly in the muffins as it is masked by the chocolate, so this would be a sneaky way to get the family eating more veggies! These taste best warm, straight from the oven.
– Sweet as Honey
Ingredients: egg, cream of tartar, avocado, almond meal flour, baking soda, psyllium husk powder.
Many oopsie bread recipes use cheese, but this is a dairy free recipe that uses avocado and it works really well in this gluten and dairy free bread. The oopsie bread can then be used as burger buns, and it tastes best freshly cooked so you can enjoy the light and fluffy texture. This recipe is quite low in calories too, so it is perfect if you are watching your weight.

You can either serve these with a slice of lime on top, or you can grate some zest and sprinkle that over the creamy filling for a delicious keto treat.
