These melt-in-your-mouth fudgy avocado brownies are totally butter-free, gluten-free and dairy-free and taste just as good as regular brownies, if not even better!
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: English
Serves: 8
  • 100 g/ 3.5 oz bar of 65-70% dark chocolate
  • 200 g/ 7 oz avocado flesh ( about 2 avocados)
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ vanilla pod
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 85 g/ 3 oz Dutch cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp demerara or brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp honey ( like Manuka honey), optional
  • ½ tbsp baking soda
  • Pinch of sea salt flakes
To serve:
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/360F. Grease with a little olive oil a 8" baking pan.
  2. Melt the chocolate in a heat-proof bowl over a pan of boiling water. Once melted, let it cool a little.
  3. Add the avocado flesh into a mixer, then fold in eggs, vanilla and water. Blend all ingredients until creamy.
  4. Add in sugar, cocoa powder, honey if you like and a pinch of sea salt. Mix all ingredients, fold in baking soda and stir until just combined.
  5. Transfer the mixture into your prepared pan, levelling out the top and spreading well out the mix to all of the edges.
  6. Sprinkle with sea salt flakes and bake in the oven for 20-25 min, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  7. Allow to cool completely before taking out of the pan. Cut into square and drizzle with caramel sauce if you like. Enjoy!
These brownies are very fudgy, add 2 tbsp of flour into the mixture to get a bit of cake-like texture. You can also add 2 tbsp almond flour to keep it gluten-free.
