Vegan Avocado Brownies 

Delicious Vegan Avocado Brownies. So good that Nobody could tell that these are vegan! A perfect healthy treat for your little ones without compromising the delicious taste and texture. Why not make this for Valentine’s Day or any day! 

I don’t even know where to start with these brownies! They are chocolatety, gooey and simply delicious that boy licked the mixing bowl clean! Haha! 

I made them a couple a weeks ago, my 4 years old and I kept eating until I realised I only had 2 small sad pieces left and could barely take a pic that would look presentable!  So this time I’ve made sure that I took some good pics before digging in! 

Ingredients

  • 1 large avocado
  • 1/4 cup melted oil – olive,  coconut or avocado (I used avocado)
  • 1 cup of flour of your choice (i used spelt)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar /brown sugar (I used brown sugar this time as tan out of coconut)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup pure coconut milk

OPTIONAL Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped nuts (I used pecan)
  • chocolate chips / chunks of 70% good quality chocolate

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a square baking pan with parchment paper and lightly brush over with oil.
    2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, cacao powder, salt. Put avocado and coconut milk and oil in a food processor / hand blender and blitz until smooth. Move it over to the flour bowl. Whisk until well combined, now add the optional ingredients.
    3. Spread the batter evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan, sprinkle with pecan nuts if desired and bake for 15-20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
    4. Cool brownies completely in the pan on a wire rack. Cut into squares and serve. 
    5. The brownies will stay fresh for up to 3 days (if they last this long!) stored in an airtight container at room temperature.

    Enjoy!

    Update: 

    Many of you have asked me if they are freezable and the answer is YES! I made 2 batches of these yummy brownies and froze one batch. Today (2 week later) just took 3 pieces out and put them in the oven at 150°C for about 10 mins, no need to preheat the oven first. They tasted like newly baked again! 😋👌

    1. Can I use almond flour or coconut flour? What measurements would you recommend? My son can’t have wheat/grains. Thanks!
