Avocado Brownies


Avocado brownies? Why? Because they are moist, soft, rich and delicious! Almost paleo (minus the sugar) and very rich, I would not give these to kids but they are a nice grown-up treat! Cut into squares and eat warm or store in the freezer for a cool dark chocolate treat!

Ingredients

  • 2 large, ripe avocados, mashed until creamy (about 1 cup)
  • 8 ounces semisweet or dark chocolate, melted
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup rice flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper or grease baking dish.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together mashed avocados, melted chocolate and coconut oil until smooth and creamy. Whisk in sugar. Mix in eggs, one at a time, until well combined. Add vanilla.
  • In a small bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Stir dry mixture into avocado mixture until just combined — be careful not to overmix! Spread batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool and then cut into squares.
