Now this is different. I got the original recipe from About.com. The original recipe calls for 3 cups of powdered sugar which is a lot, so I have changed some of the ingredients to suit my tastes. I dropped the amount down to two cups of sugar instead. It should still work. Also since I live at 5,000 feet less sugar is better. These brownies are rich and dairy-free. You can also substitute 1/2 cup apple sauce for the margarine if you want this to be lower in fat. And if you want less carbs, you can also replace the sugars with a sugar substitute.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, melt the margarine over low heat.
  2. Once the margarine is melted, puree the avocado in a food processor or blend until its totally smooth. Make sure no chunks remain.
  3. Put the avocado, vanilla and coco into the saucepan. Then add the sugar a little at a time.
  4. Once the sugar is all added the mixture should thicken up. Then add the nuts if using.
  5. Transfer this to a loaf pan and refrigerate until firm.
  6. It has to set up for quite a while other wise you won't be able to cut it into squares.
  7. Bon Appetit!

This dish sounded yummy, however even with "only" two cups of sugar it ended up waaaaaaaaay too sweet. I hate to throw food away, so I'll be experimenting with adding some more avocado and making two dishes out of one to cut down on the sweetness. I personally think 1 cup of sugar would be plenty for this recipe and perhaps use more avocado instead. I couldn't taste the avocado at all in this dish.
