Avocado Cacao Brownies

Scale

Ingredients

For Brownies

  • 1 ½ cup avocado cream (see below)
  • 1 cup succanat
  • 1 cup flour
  • 8 oz. dark cacao bar
  • ½ cup vegan margarine 
  • ½ cup agave nectar
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ t baking powder
  • ½ t baking soda
  • 2 Ener-G egg replacer

Avocado Cream

  • 2 avocados
  • ¼ cup non-dairy milk

Instructions

  1. Make avocado cream first. Using a food processor, process avocado cream until creamy. If you don’t have a food processor, use a blender, making sure that it is completely smooth. The last thing you want is for people to find green avocado bits in their brownie! Then they’d know the secret!
  2. Heat oven to 350 deg
  3. Melt dark cacao bar and vegan margarine in a double boiler
  4. While melting, sift flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda in bowl and whisk till combined
  5. Once chocolate mixture is melted, remove from heat and stir in succanat and agave nectar
  6. Add chocolate mixture to avocado cream in mixing bowl to form your “wet” ingredients
  7. Add dry ingredients to wet and mix well
  8. Add egg replacer and vanilla and stir till combined
  9. Pour into greased 9 x 12 pan and bake for 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Notes

I’ve been making this for 10+ years and it never fails.

I typically use Haas Avocadoes for this recipe.
