If you can’t tell already, I am an emotional eater. When I feel down and sad, baking is my escape. I try to give away most of my baked goods, just so that we don’t eat them all ourselves. Last night, I tried a new recipe I found online and tweaked it to make it slightly healthier.
Healthier Chocolate Fudge Brownie
1 well mashed avocado
3 beaten eggs
1 cup of self raising flour (can use Gluten Free option)
1tsp baking powder
1tsp vanilla essence
300g dark chocolate chips (can use Lactose free option)
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 180C.
In a pot, heat coconut oil and chocolate chips until well combined, take off heat.
In batches, add flour, sugar, essence and baking powder, continue stirring the whole time.
Stir in avocado until well combined.
When mixture is cooled, stir in eggs.
Pour into baking tray then in the oven for 25 minutes.
Cool for 20 minutes before serving 🙂
The original recipe uses almond meal, but I didn’t have any. You can’t taste the avocado at all, but it must add moisture in the brownie. I love having a piece of the brownie warm, Mr E said that when cold, it is more of a fudge texture 🙂
