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!

Recipe Notes

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.
