Dark Chocolate {flourless} Avocado Brownies


 Dark Chocolate Brownies 

made WITH avocado WITHOUT flour or butter

I’ve confessed my weakness for all things brownie related. I don’t even have to be hungry to eat an entire pan of them.

Plain, with nuts, caramel, peanut butter, frosted, or with powdered sugar…no brownie is safe around me.

Unfortunately, my love of brownies does not fit with my fear of turning heads at the  pool for all the wrong reasons.

That, and I have been dying to try avocados in sweets.  They seem to be popping up everywhere these days.

 So here I am, killing two birds with one stone.  I get to try avocado in a brownie, and I get to eat a brownie that  won’t require a tent as a bathing suit cover-up.

{unless I eat the entire pan, which is VERY much a possibility}

These brownies are FUDGY

in a BIG way

Not too sweet, and full of rich chocolate flavor.

Simply amazing.

My kids love avocados almost as much as I do,so I didn’t need to “hide” them, but…

they had NO idea they were in there.

Our favorite brownie recipe is this one here, and it is flour-less. I wasn’t sure if it would work with avocado in place of the oil, but it did.
