Decadent Dark Chocolate Avocado Brownies

Avocado in the brownies – Who would’ve known?
These Healthy & Decadent Dark Chocolate Avocado Brownies are so chewy, chocolatey, and deliciously tasty that no one ever suspects they’re healthier for you!

When I started looking to expand my creativity in ways to eat avocados that go beyond guacamole, I discovered the idea of using avocado in place of butter or oil in a recipe. My initial thought was that the idea was a crazy one.

Being a person with a wanderlust for culinary adventure, I quickly warmed up to the idea, deciding to include the fruit as a replacement for the oil in a gluten-free brownie.

This wasn’t the first time I’d played around with a crazy and somewhat unconventional cooking idea.

After all, this wasn’t the first time I’d played around with a crazy and somewhat unconventional cooking idea. Years ago having been out of eggs and needing to make a cake for a family get-together, I had substituted mayonnaise for eggs in the batter. The cake turned out delicious! It ultimately generated loads of compliments from those who ate it. But, there were a few who couldn’t fathom the idea of mayo in a cake and were grossed out at the very thought of ever trying it. At the end of my trial, I determined that the positives outweighed the negatives resulting in many a mayo-infused cake in years since.

For those who may be skeptical, you’re going to have to trust me on this one. This recipe uses avocado in the mix to make a super nutritious, creamy, decadent treat of a brownie that puts all other brownie recipes to shame.

Being creative, cooking, fresh veggies, the violin, decorating for holidays, sewing, hand-quilting, cowgirl boots, country music, fresh herbs in pots, blowing dandelions to the wind, walking barefoot in the grass, hanging out with eclectic interesting people, reading, writing, warm lazy summer days, and yoga!

Gluten, cilantro, mixed vegetables (the frozen kind I grew up with), negativism, rudeness, narcissism, overstaying a welcome,
not helping out, liars, promiscuity, cockiness, know-it-alls, being overly-dramatic, goal-less-ness, poor hygiene, chauvinism, lacking a sense of humor, excessive competitiveness, Laziness, horrifying spellers, people-bashing, criticism and mockery of others and their beliefs, flakiness (because flaky people are really unappealing), more swagger than substance, people who constantly manage others (those folks who think they have all the answers…)

Lambrusco, my iPad, popcorn suppers, dark chocolate, cookbooks, Almond-Rocca, historical romances, sun-bathing, weekend coffee with a good book in bed, PBS cooking shows, romantic comedies, cozy sweaters, fuzzy socks, and fragrant bubble baths with soft music and wine…

  • I’ve traveled to 32 states in the USA where I’ve enjoyed the food, history, people and the local culture while visiting.
  • Among the states, I’ve lived in are Arizona, California, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
  • My favorite island is Maui.
  • I’ve also been to Canada and Mexico.
  • I rode horses as a kid, and barrel-raced.
  • I broke my neck when I was 18 and went to senior prom in a neck brace.
  • As a little girl, I grew up living next door to my grandma and grandpa on a small lake in rural southern Michigan.
  • The first thing I learned to cook was pancakes.
  • The craziest thing I ever made was mint-flavored green cupcakes when I was 13. My family didn’t like them much…
