Oh So Fudgy Avocado Brownies

Total time: 1 HR 30 MINS (includes prep and baking time)

Makes: 16 – 20 brownies, 1 baking pan (approx. 8×8)

Ingredients

  • 1 large avocado (or 1 and a half for extra fudgy texture)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup real maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt

Optional

  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Replacements

  • For dairy free: replace unsalted butter with coconut oil
  • For animal by-product free: replace 2 eggs with 1/2 cup of mashed banana

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line an 8×8” baking pan with parchment paper. Allow parchment paper to hang over both side.  This will allow you to lift your brownies out with ease.
  • Peal and pit your large avocado.
  • Place the avocado, eggs, coconut sugar, maple syrup, butter, and vanilla in a food processor. Process until smooth with all ingredients fully blended in.
  • Once all chunks are smoothed out, add the cocoa powder, almond flour, baking soda, and salt to the food processor. Continue processing until smooth.
  • Add 1/4 of the chocolate chips and mix in to batter so evenly distributed.
  • Transfer batter into pan and smooth the top.
  • Add the other 1/4 of chocolate chips on top.
  • Bake for 30 minutes. Check your brownie consistency by sticking a toothpick into the center of your brownies. The toothpick should come out clean with no wet batter showing on it.
  • Remove your brownies from the pan and let cool on cooling rack.
  • Cut into squares and enjoy!

Tip: Don’t be afraid to refrigerate and reserve the next day as it can improve the texture and consistency of the brownies!

Simply mouth-watering!

*NOTE*: For my vegan friends, I have also used the recipe in the website link that follows for vegan avocado brownies and they are also delicious!
