Fudgy Cocoa Avocado Brownies

Happy Friday & almost St Patrick’s Day!!!

You know you are having fun when its TGIF & packing for mini-vacation courtesy of a conference that is scheduled to take place in one of the most happiest place in the planet?

Wowser, that’s a mouth-full.

You know you would be having fun at the place where all childhood dream comes true. Where there’s characters from your favorite toon shows?

Do you truly need anymore tips?

Disneyland Florida, here we come!!!!

I have a fun and simple recipe to share in honor of St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow. I know, you must be shaking your head in disbelief. Close your mouth and let me explain.

There’s no doubt this weekend fun would increase in ten-folds because these decadent treats are coming with us! Being a huge fan of avocado’s, I love experimenting incorporating it in different recipes.

And if you love chocolate as well as avocado, you’d love this recipe. I won’t deny that you’d slightly taste avocado in some bites. And it’s gonna be HEAVENLY!

The best part of all —  I used a loaf pan for this recipe. Why? Well, to end the war for edge brownies. There’s no need to purchase the “edge brownie pan” that comes on TV infomercials. A non-stick loaf pan would do the same trick. Everyone get’s a share of the edgy brownies.

Don’t believe me? Try it!!

So, my to-do list is bulging with so much to cross off for the next few hours. I better get to the recipe before my mind boggles and I mindlessly decide to chow down on brownies to calm my nerves.

And did I tell you I could eat ten of these babies in a blink?!

Ingredients:

  • 2 very ripe avocado’s, sliced with pit removed.
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp freshly brewed coffee, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and lightly flour baking pan. I used a non-stick medium loaf pan for this recipe.
  2. In a large bowl, add sliced very ripe avocado’s. With a masher, mash avocado’s until smooth.
  3. Add sugar and using a spatula, mix to incorporate.
  4. Add eggs, vanilla extract & coffee. Gently mix everything. Do not whisk.
  5. In a separate medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients: cocoa powder, whole wheat flour, salt & baking powder.
  6. Add dry ingredient into wet ingredients. Gently stir just till it combines. Again, do not over-mix.
  7. Transfer batter into loaf pan. Using a lightly greased spatula, spread batter evenly toward the edges of pan.
  8. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
  9. Remove pan and allow to cool completely before devouring with a glass of soymilk.

 

So, with the bags & boat-load of electronics packed, we are off to another adventure. Want to follow along? Catch us on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.

Off to pack these brownies before I forget. Toodles, and have a lovely weekend ahead :)

Have you been to Disneyland before? What are the must-see on your list? If you haven’t, what’s your favorite Disney character?

I’ll admit, avocado in brownies is a first for me! I’ve made them with spinach, but I’m guessing the avocado would be much tastier!
Have a great time at the conference!!

OK-you’ve convinced me, that I must try (a gluten-free version) these brownies. Wow, they look moist!! And, your cinnamon soy milk is so pretty, I need to try making that too! Disneyland (not World) is less than 1 1/2 hours away from me, so I have been many times :-) Pirates of the Carribean and The Indiana Jones Ride are too of my all time favorites. Have a wonderful trip!!

Guess what, I have everything on hand to make these… Totally doing it! Question though, is the natural oil in the avocado used as a substitute for butter or oil? Or is the avocado just for flavor?

this looks heavenly.. I recently baked with avocado and I could taste it in the cookies so I didn’t post them. I love the texture of avocado, but i didn’t like the taste of them in my cookies. i’ll try this and try and mask the flavor. thanks for sharing!

OMG – yes i have so many tips for Disney. Go to Epcot, spend like 2 days there, it is amazing! My favorites were the Mexican Pavilion, French Pavilion (desserts) for food. Chinese looks good and was more reasonable, but i didn’t try it. Germany looked amazing for caramel, but didn’t try it. Definitely go to San Angel Inn at Mexico. Boulangerie at France. The other food wasn’t good at Disney.

Honey — we love avocados in our household, so this definitely wasn’t an issue for us. Suggest using very ripe avocados, cream it as much as possible so that it’s nicely incorporated into the batter. I left mine slightly chunky.

We visited Epcot a month ago and it was amazing. This time around, we didn’t get a chance to visit any pavilion. Sigh. But thanks for sharing the tips and link :)

I think my last comment went to spam as it didn’t go through? Alas I’ll try again :)! These look delicious- love how versatile avocado is! SO jealous you’re off to Disney…I haven’t been to the US one in years but I went to Euro Disney in 2006 with some friends and it was such a blast! Running the Disney Half Marathon is actually on my bucket list, more so after reading blogger recaps! Safe travels!

My dream as kid was to go to disney land in paris, since it was close from our family house in france. we never went there but we went to Astrix Park and I was a huuuuge Asterix fan (still am!), I was satisfied with that trip at the end.

Avocado is such a sexy fruit. I d love to indulge myself with your fudgy brownie treat!

I am going to try these ! I have been experimenting with avocado as a fat replacement in some of my older muffin recipes. That and using truvia in place of sugar, whole grain flour and I am happy with the results ! I love the idea of making a healthy sweet treat. I just found a website that can break down all the nutrients in recipes , and I am loving the results because I am trying to drop some pounds. Knowing the calories as well as the other info is a great tool I think. Even my picky eater daughter has been liking the treats !

I noticed in the comments nobody had actually tried this. The pictures look yummy so I gave them a shot. I followed the recipe exactly but it was a total dud. We all love chocolate and avocados, but my kids wouldn’t even eat them after the first bite. It’s a pity since avocados are rather pricey here. Sorry to have to say it but these were bland and tasteless for us, I definitely won’t be baking with avocado again.

I followed the recipe perfectly but after the 30 mins mine were still gooey. I put them in another 3 times at 10 mins each and I figure ill just let them cool and see if it hardens up a tad. The top is firm but the insides are very moist. Trial and error!

Reply

Okay I tried them and they were as satisfying as they look! Maybe it’s just not for me. Too bad because I love both ingredients but I guess not combined!

Reply

105 Kiran August 8, 2013 at 1:54 AM

Mandi — firstly, thanks for trying this recipe. secondly, so sorry it did not live to your expectations. sigh. there could be a couple of factors in terms of texture. too much wet ingredients (the size of avocados and eggs), oven temperature varies with time/brand and air moisture etc. love that you kept it going with trial and error. i hope to recreate similar brownies but with different flavors in the future. hope you’d not give up on these ingredients and try it next time. thank you so much for the update. i truly appreciate it :)
