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.
Cut into the avocado in a tight crisscross pattern.
Use a spoon to scoop the avocado out of the peel and into a small bowl. Then use a fork to finish mashing the avocado.
And there you have it. You are well on your way to making this unusual but very tasty dessert.
I’ve included links in this post for the specialty products that I used. The best prices I’ve found are from Thrive Market which is like the Costco of health food. After you pay a $60 membership fee, you’ll be able to order low carb products at a discount of 25-50%. So the links in the recipe ingredients are links to the less expensive Thrive Market products. But I’ve also included Amazon links below to use if you don’t have a Thrive Market membership. Both kinds of links are affiliate links, so I’ll receive a commission if you buy something. Which is, honestly, a pretty sweet deal.
