'Av-another one' Brownies!

Avocado Brownies

Av-another one Brownies!

 

Ingredients:

  • 120g Stevia-Sweetened Dark Chocolate, melted in 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil ( I use “Well Naturally” Stevia-sweetened dark chocolate – available in the heath food section @ Coles.)
  • 3 perfectly ripe Small Avocados, or 2 Large  (No black bits as they add a horrible bitter taste! )
  • 1/3 c baking Natvia (-or more if you’re a bit of a sweet tooth!)
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/4 c Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 2/3 c roughly chopped walnuts (optional)

Icing:

  • 90g Stevia-Sweetened Dark Chocolate (again, I like “Well Naturally” Stevia-sweetened dark chocolate)
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil

 

Method:

  1. Puree the avocado flesh in a small food processor or for an even better result I recommend a stick mixer.
  2. Melt chocolate together with coconut oil and stir until smooth. (You will use this exact same method to make the icing).
  3. Beat all remaining ingredients together with the avocado and melted chocolate mixture in a bowl with an electric mixer until really smooth and fluffy.
  4. Spoon batter into a greased 20cm square baking dish.
  5. Bake at 180C for 35 minutes – or until a skewer comes out clean.
  6. Cool, and then top with icing which is made by melting chocolate together with coconut oil and stir until smooth.
  7. Top with walnuts if desired.
