Nut-Free, Flourless Brownies

No nut, no keto flour means a short list of ingredients and ease of cooking. It also means the dessert will be gluten-free, grain-free, low-carb, wheat-free, and LCHF. With the avocado making the mixture thick and creamy, there will be no need to add more ingredients, keeping the recipe super-easy.

The eggs work as emulsifiers to hold and retain the chocolate sweets together. Plus, no nut keto brownies get a texture and flavor similar to a baked cheesecake. Yummy!

Are Avocados Keto?

Yes. Avocados are low in net carbs, accounting for a negligible 1.5 grams of them per 100 grams serving. The healthy fruit is loaded with nearly 7 grams of fiber/100g. It also boasts a high content of healthy Omega 3 to 6 fatty acids, vitamins, folate, and potassium.

It is what makes the nut-free, avocado brownies a treat for the tongue, the heart, and the body in general.
