There are no shortage of low carb avocado recipes around here!!! And I’m always (and forever!) ready to share more of them. Today, it’s this BLT keto stuffed avocado recipe.
Why would you love this recipe? Why wouldn’t you is really the question I really should be asking. Well, it tastes like a BLT sandwich in stuffed bowl form! Maybe that didn’t need to be said. It’s probably obvious enough in the recipe name. I still felt like I had to mention it though, just to be sure we’re on the same page about the awesomeness that is this recipe. I don’t know about you, but to me avocado tastes infinitely better than a boring piece of white bread, anyway.
Another great thing about this BLT stuffed avocado recipe is that it’s friendly to so many dietary restrictions, if you have any, but it doesn’t taste that way. These BLT stuffed avocados are low carb, ketogenic, paleo, gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free, egg-free, THM S, and whole30 approved. (By the way, if you’re doing the whole 30, check out my friend, Monica’s whole 30 menu plan!)
Everything is better with bacon, and these stuffed avocados are no exception. Crispy bacon is the key to completing this dish.
Of course, the nutrition highlight of this recipe is the avocado. These little powerhouses are packed with a lengthy list of vitamins and minerals – folate, potassium, magnesium, manganese, iron, zinc, phosphorus, and vitamins A, C, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, E, and K. Whew!
How To Make Keto Stuffed Avocado
Once you see how easy these keto stuffed avocados are to make, you’ll be making them on repeat – don’t say I didn’t warn you! 🙂 Here are the four easy steps to my blt stuffed avocado recipe:
- Cook the bacon. I have directions for frying below, or you can use the oven baked bacon method!
- Prep the avocados. Once you slice the avocados in half, remove the pit. Scoop half of the flesh out of each avocado half (being sure to leave some undisturbed) and transfer to a bowl.
- Mix the filling. Mash the avocado and then stir in grape tomatoes, lettuce, lime juice, garlic powder, sea salt, and black pepper. Gently mix in the chopped bacon.
- Fill the avocados. Add the stuffing back into the avocado halves. EAT!
Are Avocados Keto?
Yes! Avocados are keto. It’s one of the (many) reasons that I love keto recipes with avocado. Avocados are incredibly low in carb due to the already low amount of carbs and a lot of fiber.
For one serving (1/3 of an avocado), there is:
- 80 calories
- 8 grams fat
- 4 grams carbohydrates
- 3 grams fiber
- 1 gram net carbohydrates
Keto avocado recipes are a great way to add a nutrient-dense source of healthy fats and energy to your diet.
How To Eat Stuffed Avocado
This is a funny (but common) question! The best way to eat a keto stuffed avocado is to use a spoon! Simply scoop out bites that include some of the filling and some of the outer edge of the avocado.
That’s it! It’s for sure the easiest way to eat stuffed avocado recipes.
Can You Make Stuffed Avocado Ahead?
Stuffed avocado recipes are best fresh. Because the avocados brown once they are cut open, I like to make them right before serving. You can prep all of the other ingredients so that they can be ready in just a few minutes!

- Place bacon onto a skillet while the skillet is still cold. Cook the bacon over low or medium-low heat until the edges start to curl. Flip and continue cooking until golden and crispy. This process may take 5 minutes or maybe a little longer. Drain on paper towels (it will crisp up more as it cools).
- Meanwhile, slice the avocados in half and remove the pits. Scoop half of the flesh out of each avocado half (leave half undisturbed) and transfer to a bowl.
- Mash the avocado in the bowl. Stir in the grape tomatoes, lettuce, lime juice, garlic powder, sea salt, and black pepper (adjust seasonings to taste if needed).
- When the bacon slices are cool enough to handle, chop them up and add them to the bowl.
- Scoop the mixture back into the avocado halves.
