Ingredients

  • 100 gr 70% dark chocolate
  • 200 gr avocado flesh about 2 avocados
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ vanilla pod
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 85 gr Dutch cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp demerara or brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp honey optional
  • ½ tbsp baking soda
  • Pinch of sea salt flakes

To serve:

  • 120 gr salted caramel sauce or dulce de leche optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180°C/360°F. Grease with a little olive oil a 8" x 6'' baking pan.
  • Melt the chocolate in a heat-proof bowl over a pan of boiling water. Once melted, let it cool a little.
  • Add the avocado flesh into a mixer, then fold in eggs, vanilla and water. Blend all ingredients until creamy.
  • 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.
  • Transfer the mixture into your prepared pan, levelling out the top and spreading well out the mix to all of the edges.
  • Sprinkle with sea salt flakes and bake in the oven for 20-25 min, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool completely before taking out of the pan. Cut into square and drizzle with caramel sauce if you like. Enjoy!

Notes

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.
