Clean Eating Avocado Brownies


Hopefully these measurements are right; I had two overripe avocados to use up and half-heartedly began tossing ingredients into a bowl for a healthy brownie recipe, thinking it was hardly likely to result in anything special.


I was WRONG.  These are incredible, especially when using my own sunflower seed butter (I can't brag too much about my sunflower seed butter...it was a harder endeavor than I thought).  The sunflower seed butter was a good addition though, and helped maintain the ideal brownie texture.

Clean Eating Avocado Brownies


1-3/4 overripe avocado
1/2 cup sunflower seed butter
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 oz. nondairy chocolate chips, melted
2 tablespoons coconut palm sugar
1 tablespoon raw honey
2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
1 teaspoon corn-free baking powder
1/4 cup gluten-free flour or finely ground gluten-free oats or seeds


1.  Food-process the avocados until creamy and no lumps remain.
2.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8x8 inch pan with coconut oil.
3.  Melt nondairy chocolate chips over a double boiler or in the microwave, stirring until fine with no lumps.
4.  Add all ingredients to food processor, whipping for over a minute.
5.  Pour into pan and bake for 30 minutes.  Let cool for a minute or two on a wire rack, and serve warm.
