Avocado Brownies

If you follow me on instagram you will know that I LOVE Avocados. I’m still waiting on the avocado emoji…no pressure Apple! But I know what you’re thinking, another instagram loving, healthy gym bunny that raves about avocados…boring! But they really are so tasty, so versatile and so good for you.

Avocados are packed with monounsaturated fats (the GOOD fats), they have more potassium than bananas and they are full of vitamins, so whats not to love!

Anyway, I’ve seen so many people using avocados as a healthy replacement for butter in baking and in a chocolate mousse, which is a great idea so thought I would give it a try myself. What better way to get experimenting that with brownies! Yum.

These brownies are light, gluten free, dairy free and such a good healthy alternative!

I’ve listed the recipe below but head over to my youtube for the full video.
