This recipe is helps to cure your chocolate cravings without totally ruining your diet.
I made a batch of these and didn’t tell my kids what went in them (I also made sure that they didn’t see the batter as I was mixing these brownies up because the avocado makes things a little green . . . ha ha.)
But once they bake, you would never know.
My kids and husband devoured them. Seriously loved them and didn’t even bat an eye.
why use avocados when baking?
-When it comes to baking, you can use an avocado as a substitute for butter, shortening, and/or oil. While avocados do have fat, it’s more of the “good-for-you” fats instead of saturated fats.
-Plus avocados have less calories than butter and oil and tons of vitamins and minerals, so, #winning.
-Avocados also have a higher water content than butter, making your baked goods soft. So . . . what are you waiting for?? Throw some avocados in these brownies and let’s get cooking.
do i have to use coconut flour?
The other ingredient used in these brownies that is a little different is coconut flour. I haven’t made too many recipes using coconut flour, so I am still learning.
I have learned that coconut flour cannot be a straight-across substitute for all-purpose flour or other flour because coconut flour is so different.
It’s really absorbent and requires more eggs and/or liquid to make it work. So, if you don’t have any coconut flour on hand, I recommend that you try a different brownie recipe.
However, for this recipe, the coconut flour gives it a more sweet taste. You are going to love it, I promise.
