I love avocados oh-so-much…they’re nature’s butter! I love them in guac, on salad, on eggs, or all by themselves. If you’ve never devoured an entire avocado all by itself, you’re missing out on one of the richest culinary experiences nature has to offer. Bonus points, too, if you can get all the flesh off the pit without using your hands…and without breaking your jaw on the pit. Huh, maybe I need to socialize more.
What do I love more than avocados? Um…chocolate. Duh.
Last night I was ready to kick a puppy for something chocolate-y and hot from the oven…but alas, my cupboards were bare. Instead, I drank about 50 cups of mint tea and went to bed all pouty.
But today was a new day, my friends.
4 oz Unsweetened Chocolate, melted in 1 T Coconut Oil
3 Small Avocados (or 2 Large)
1/2 c Honey
1/4 c Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 T Vanilla
1 T Coconut Flour
1 t Baking Soda
1/2 t Salt
Puree the avocado flesh in a food processor. Make sure there are NO lumps left over…as good as chunky guacamole is, I can’t say that it’s all that good baked into a brownie.
Beat all remaining ingredients together with the avocado in a bowl with an electric mixer until really smooth and fluffy.
Spoon batter into a greased 8×8 baking dish.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out smooth.
