Chocolate Avocado Brownie (Vegan and Gluten Free)
I finally made a yummy vegan brownie! My kids love it and I love that it is pretty nutrient dense! I just have to make it while my husband isn't looking. Because he is the only person on this planet that does not like avocados! lol
1/2 ripe avocado (I used 1 whole because I love avocados!)
1 cup + 2 tablespoons organic coconut milk (or other plant based milk that you prefer)
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350° then lightly grease an 8x8" baking dish (I love using Pyrex)
In a blender, combine the avocado, coconut milk, maple syrup and coconut sugar. Blend for about 15-20 seconds, until smooth.
In a large bowl, combine the coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and sea salt. Stir together.
Combine wet ingredients with the dry ingredients in the bowl.
Add chocolate chips and stir together until combined.
Pour batter in greased baking dish, sprinkle more chocolate chips on top if desired.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, until set. You should be able to stick a fork in the center and have it come out clean.
Allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before cutting and serving.
I found the brownies to be more fudgey after it sits in the fridge overnight. I don't feel guilty letting my kids have this for breakfast! = D
Hope you enjoy and let me know if you make some and how it turns out! <3
