ZERO Oil Eggless Avocado Brownies

These Heart healthy Zero oil Brownies are made up by replacing oil and butter with avocados which are high in healthy fats. Its a nutritious, delicious and easy to make heart healthy dessert. Avocados contain lots of fiber and are rich in vitamins and minerals, such as B-vitamins, vitamin K, potassium, copper, vitamin E and vitamin C.


Avocados are usually pear-shaped to round and they come in many different shades of green, ranging from pale green to almost black when fully ripe.


Use  ripe avocado to avoid lumps and obtain the perfect texture. If your avocado don’t ripe very well store them near bananas at room temperature for few days and they will ripe well.


This is one of my best avocado recipes and the best part is you don’t taste the avocado in this recipe. These eggless avocado brownies are the perfect party treat. Easy to make, store, travel with, and disappear, these brownies are the best party dessert imaginable.

The amount of chocolate and flour in the recipe decides if the homemade brownie will be fudgy or cakey, so adjust the ratio to soothe your taste buds. Blooming the cocoa in boiling water brings out its flavor and melting the semi sweet or bitter sweet chocolate chips in this boiling water ads another layer of chocolate oomph.

Recipe Notes

Use high quality chocolates in this recipe. I prefer HERSHEY'S  or Ghirardelli  semi sweet chocolate chips.

If you are adding nuts, toast them until fragrant before stirring them into batter. toasting the nuts improves the flavor and this also ensures that they won't become soggy.[recipe]


  1. Oh my goodness, these brownies look amazing. I am always on the lookout for healthier dessert recipes, and I think I found one. Avocado is one of my favorite things to eat. I try to use avocado in many different recipes. I also like to just mash it up and use it as a spread. I have to try this recipe. Can you please explain to me what you mean by “Blooming” the cocoa? I am not familiar with that. Also, can this work with dark chocolate? I really prefer dark chocolate. Thanks for sharing this recipe, I can’t wait to try it.

    • Glad that you liked the recipe. The cocoa is ‘bloomed’ when it is mixed with hot liquid to dissolve the cocoa powder , which in turn helps releasing flavor particles within the powder. Blooming the cocoa makes the chocolate flavour more intense in the baked cake or brownie. Definitely this recipe should also work with dark chocolate, it goes very well with bitter sweet chocolate chips.

  2. What an awesome idea! I’m all for trying out new ways of making old recipes. I never knew that avocados could be used this way and thanks to you i have the know-how on how to make them!

    How did you first learn about this method?

    What i really like about this article is that the directions are laid out in a way that is simple to follow and you have even offered some great tips, such as blooming the cocoa and melting the chocolate chips in the boiling water, as to increase the flavor.

    Those are excellent techniques. I wonder if they make avocado oil?

    I look forward to making these brownies as i have a huge sweet tooth but keep an eye on my health.

    Thanks for sharing!

    • I also love avocados and thus keep trying to include it in different recipes. I learnt about this method when a friend of mine used it for making up a cake, I thought why not to use it in a brownie. Yes, Avocado oil is now available in the market and can also be used but I prefer using fresh ripe avocados.

    • Yes , general recommendation is to intake 25%-35% of fat in your diet and preferably Healthy fats ( monounsaturated fats) as they don’t raise LDL( Bad Cholestrol) . Nice information James. Thanks a lot , will definitely go through the article.
