Just when you thought I was finished posting dessert recipes using avocado….

In walked these flourless avocado brownies.

Our history with avocado-based desserts includes Key Lime Vegan Ice Cream , 4-Ingredient Chocolate Mousse, Vegan Key Lime Popsicles, Dairy-Free Avocado Fudgesicles …and more!

These sultry lumps of avocado lovin’ are so easy to make and are a marvelous healthier treat. They are soft and chewy with an epic fudgey goo factor (if you add the chocolate chips).

How to Make Flourless Avocado Brownies:

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line an 8” x 8” or 9” x 9” cake pan with parchment paper.

Add all ingredients except for the chocolate chips to a food processor. Process until completely smooth. You may need to stop the food processor and scrape the sides a couple times using a rubber spatula.

Bake on the center rack of the preheated oven 40 to 45 minutes, until brownies have set up.

Recipe Adaptations:

  • Replace almond butter with peanut butter, cashew butter, or nutella.
  • Omit the chocolate chips for a lower sugar brownie.
  • Make recipe vegan by replacing the eggs with two flax eggs (2 Tbsp ground flax seed + 6 Tbsp water. Stir together in a bowl and allow mixture to sit 10 minutes, or until thick and gooey).
  • Add chopped walnuts or pecans.
  • If you use regular cane sugar, replace the coconut sugar with dark brown sugar.
  • Add a couple scoops of protein powder if that’s your jam.
