Low Carb Keto Avocado Brownies

Now you might be thinking to yourself, "Avocado brownies.  Why?".

Well I'll tell you.  Avocado takes the place of oil in this recipe, so these brownies are as healthy and nutrient rich as they come.  And let's face it, you are on a weirdo low carb diet anyway.  You've probably made bread out of cheese and rice from cauliflower.  Why not try avocado brownies? 

They might just win you over like they did me.

These brownies are on the fudgey end of the brownie spectrum.  (If you like a cakier brownie, then you should check out these flax brownies that I made a while back.)  You can taste the avocado if you really try, but it's very subtle.  It's easy to forget that you are eating a brownie made with avocado.  

You'll need to mash two avocados for this recipe.  Here are some tips on the easiest way to cut and mash avocados.   

 Cut the avocado in half lengthwise and use a large knife to chop halfway into the seed. Twist the seed free and discard.
