Gluten-free, grain-free, and sugar-free brownies. Once done, no one will ever know they contain avocados. I know it sounds crazy, but the avocados really do work! They make these brownies very creamy.

  • Melt chocolate with coconut oil in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 15-second intervals, stirring after each melting, 1 to 3 minutes.

  • Place diced avocado in a food processor; blend until completely smooth.

  • Whisk eggs, honey, cocoa powder, coconut flour, vanilla extract, baking soda, and salt in bowl until well mixed. Add avocado puree; stir until well combined. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can sub sugar for honey, but since honey is sweeter you may want to increase the sugar content, this may also affect the moistness of the final product.

You can substitute butter for coconut oil or vice versa, but do not attempt to substitute any other flours for the coconut flour. This recipe is meant to replace wheat-based flours and coconut flour is well known to soak up a lot of moisture. It will change the consistency if this is changed.

I have used avocados in many sweet recipes and have always enjoyed the results. These were different. I didn't particularly care for the honey flavor combination. Maybe if I had substituted sugar I might have liked them better. Read More
