directions

  • For Brownies:

  • Preheat oven to 350F (325F for glass or dark pan). Liberally spray a 9-inch square pan with non-stick spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk mashed avocado and melted chocolate.
  • Whisk in sugar until combined, then add in eggs and vanilla extract, mixing well.
  • Add in flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt, mixing with a large spoon until JUST combined - do not over mix.
  • Stir in oil until it's well distributed and batter is somewhat smooth. Fold in chopped chocolate, then spread batter in pan.
  • Bake for 28-32 minutes, or until middle is set. Remove and let cool completely, then frost and top with grated chocolate if desired.
  • For Frosting:

  • Add avocado to the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until mashed and creamy. Add lemon juice.
  • With the mixer on low speed, add in vanilla then slowly add in powdered sugar, scraping down the sides if needed, until a smooth frosting forms. Frost brownies once cooled.
  • Note: Placed brownies in the fridge (covered throughly with plastic wrap) to store. Let them come to room temp to serve, or place them in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds before serving.

    Very good and interesting! I did wonder about this recipe (skipped the frosting) but made the brownies as directed and served them to a group of people who really enjoyed the brownies (and no one thought I used avocado in them!) A great way to use up avocados! Thanks for sharing!
