Avo Brownies

I made these avocado brownies several months ago, while avos were still very much in season.

So it just shows how behind I am on my posts, because I’ve noticed that the price is already starting to creep upwards again.

Sigh.  ANYWAY! Here we go!

These avocado brownies are really worth trying out.  I know it may sound a little weird, but believe me, it is good!

I would love to take credit for it, but I got this from the How Sweets Eats blog – I made a few very minor changes.  Here goes:

2 large ripe avocados, mashed finely
2 slabs (80g each) Cadbury’s Bournville Dark Chocolate
1 cup white sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
3/4 cup cake flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons avocado oil
1 slab (80g) Cadbury’s Bournville Dark Chocolate

  • Preheat oven on 180C and prepare a medium sized baking dish.
  • Melt 2 slabs of chocolate:  break chocolate in smaller pieces, place it in a heatproof bowl set OVER a pot of simmering water; stir occasionally until melted – should take about 2 to 3 minutes
  • In a large bowl, mix mashed avocado and melted chocolate.
  • Mix sugar until combined, then add in eggs and vanilla essence
  •  Add cake flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt – mix with a large spoon until combined – don’t overmix

  •  Stir in avocado oil until mixed well
  • Chop/break the 3rd slab of chocolate in bits, fold into batter, transfer batter to baking dish.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, or until middle is cooked through
  • Remove from oven, let it cool down a bit and cut into blocks

Lovely and goey, and in my mind – because it contains fruit, I do see it was a healthy option.

I served these for dessert with red wine ice cream.  So delicious, if I do say so myself! The proof is, as they say, in the pudding, because our lunch guests kept asking for second servings.
