Avocado Chocolate Brownie

Now I love a good chocolate brownie and so I was quite eager to try this version using avocado. Too be honest I wasn’t expecting much but wow, if I hadn’t of known I would of thought it was a typical delicious unhealthy brownie but this baby is a great alternative. It ticks a number of health requirements including Gluten & Dairy Free, Paleo and even Vegan. I will be sure to be making this again.

Avocado Brownie

Ingredients

  • ½ cup almond butter (or you can use sunflower, cashew or macadamia)
  • 1 large ripe avocado OR banana
  • ¾ cup raw cacao powder
  • ½ cup ground almonds
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • Broken dark chocolate (optional, I used 82% Green & Black organic dark chocolate)

Method

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line a small baking pan with baking paper.

Place avocado (or banana) into a food processor and process until 100% smooth.

Add remaining ingredients and process until smooth. At this point stir through the dark chocolate if you are using them.

Pour mixture into prepared pan. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven a wee bit earlier if you like it gooey.
