Did you have any idea that you could use avocado to make brownies? I didn’t, until I saw this recipe and became totally inspired.
Just so you know, you will not taste the avocado at all but it’s a great way to lighten up your brownies (plus add some healthy fats).
These brownies are almost custard like but still rich and fudgey.
I like adding an extra sprinkle of chocolate chips to the top because, well, do I really need to explain why? It makes them extra gooey with just the right amount of chocolateness (is that even a word?) in every bite.
These brownies are great for lunch boxes or as a late afternoon snack with a cup of coffee. They also freeze well if you want to make them last the haul.
