I love avocados, there are so many ways to eat them, and all around I think they are just an awesome fruit. They have such amazing color inside and instead of removing a million seeds like some other fruits, it only has one big seed. Easy peasy seed removal at its finest. Plus avocados are packed with potassium, protein, and antioxidants. So…do they really taste good in brownies? Absolutely!

Now here’s the thing, the big butt gods blessed me with only a small, and I mean very small, sweet tooth. I’ve just never had big cravings for sugar and sweet things. However, I do have a weakness for chocolate. Especially real, dark chocolate. So every now and again, I really crave me some chocolate. When I heard you could make brownies out of avocados I knew it was something I had to try. And I am pleased to say these were so satisfying when I was craving some sweets, plus they were quick and easy to make – a big plus in my book!

One more thing, after I made these, I walked into our office where my husband was editing some pictures (he’s an amazing photographer by the way), and he took one look at me and started literally LOLing! He said go look in the mirror. So I did. And I had a little bit a ton of brownie batter all over my face. Busted…I licked the bowl, I see no harm in that 🙂

Pre-heat your over to 350°, remove the seeds from your avocados and scoop into a food processor. Blend until smooth, and I mean smooth – you don’t want chunky brownies!

Meanwhile melt your chocolate chips and coconut oil and pour into a bowl. Then add your blended avocados along with your remaining ingredients into the bowl and mix on low until smooth.

Cut and enjoy. I especially love these warm and gooey, right when they come out of the oven. My mouth is watering just thinking about how tasty these were. See healthy food can be savoring! These brownies did not come from a box, contained no chemicals, were super easy to make, and are filled with potassium and protein. Next time you make your kids brownies, give these a try and see if they complain. Just don’t forget to let them lick the bowl….if you don’t get to it first 😉
