Avocado Brownies | "Butter-Free" Brownies

These may sound unusual (lol...they are!) but they really are delicious. I replaced the butter you would typically use in making brownies with two avocados. They are very moist and decadent!


1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup dutch-processed cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup walnuts
1/2 cup canola oil
2 large ripe avocados
6 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 TBS strong coffee or coffee granules


Heat oven to 350 degrees.

In bowl of food processor, grind walnuts into a coarse meal. Remove walnuts and place in separate bowl. Blend avocados, eggs, oil, sugars, vanilla, and coffee in food processor. In another small bowl mix flour, salt, and cocoa powder. Blend flour mixture into avocado mixture. Stir in walnuts by hand. (At this point feel free to add extra chocolate chips, whole walnuts, etc.)

Place in a 9x13 greased pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes.

Brownies taste best when slightly cooled!
