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.
