My love for avocados has about tripled in the last 24 hours. I have at least half of an avocado a day but I have a feeling I will be increasing my intake thanks to this secretly healthy brownie recipe. I came across an article that listed all of the ways you can use avocados. On the list was brownies. Brownies with avocado?! Challenge accepted. I dove right in and was amazed at the results. These Avocado Fudge Brownies are nothing but fudgy, chocolaty and rich…and did I mention healthy? Avocados, you win again. You continue to be so amazing and now I have another excuse to eat you each and everyday!
- 2 ripe avocados
- 1/2 cup heaping, unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup almond meal
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/3-1/2 cup maple syrup or honey
- 1/2 c chocolate chunks or chips
Preheat oven to 350° F.
In a food processor, process all ingredients except for about 1/2 of the chocolate chunks.
Process until smooth. Stir in the rest of the chocolate chunks
Pour mixture into a parchment lined 6×8 pan.
Bake for about 40-50 minutes or until you can put a toothpick in the middle with no residue.
Let cool completely or eat while still warm!
I didn’t use flax eggs in this recipe but I am sure you could easily sub to make these vegan.
An 8×8 pan should work but the brownies won’t be quite as thick.
