HealthIER Chocolate Fudge Brownies

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

Ingredients:
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

Method:
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 🙂

Enjoy!

The Multicultural Festival 2014

We spent the entire day at the Multicultural Festival today. We did nothing but eat and drink. It was such a hot day and super duper crowded. Little E was such a trooper, he didn’t fuss at all!

Finally! Good authentic Indo satay sauce! Soooooo good! I wish I bought more. I also found out about Aus/Indo language school for children, we’re definitely looking into it for Little E.

Another highlight of my day: having tried haggis for the first time and chips on a stick! Little E absolutely loved the haggis. I guess he does have some Scottish heritage in him 🙂

As every year, I enjoyed the Tongan watermelon and coconut milk punch. So refreshing in the heat. I had such fun today, I look forward to the next year!

The Festival is still on until late tonight as well as tomorrow. If you’re in Canberra, please do go and check it out 🙂
