Avocados are Mother Nature's butter.
So these must be Mother Nature's brownies.
Well done, Mother Nature, well done.
Mexican Chocolate Avocado Brownies
1/2 cup pureed avocado (~1 small avocado)
2/3 cup white sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/3 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup high quality unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon (omit for regular brownies)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat together avocado puree, sugar, vanilla, and eggs.
In a separate bowl, mix remaining dry ingredients. Beat dry ingredients into wet.
Pour batter into a round 9" cake pan, prepared with baking spray (*you may also use an 8x8" square pan).
Bake for ~20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownies comes out clean!
Cut into 8 (or 9 if using a square pan) even slices and serve!
