Avocado Brownies – no eggs no dairy

When a recipe is healthy and at the same time irresistible you know that you nailed it 😉

The avocado brownies were gone in two days and this time I could enjoy them too, being egg and dairy free!!

Few things I really love about this recipe:

  • it’s super easy to prepare (simply throw the ingredients in a food processor and blend!!)
  • of course, it’s on the healthy side (Avocados = good Omega3 fatty acids = brain fuel for the kids)
  • it tastes so good that nobody would suspect how healthy it is
  • I can enjoy it too!!

Considering that I used coconut sugar to sweeten the brownies I would suggest offering this lovely treat after 12 months: a super toddler snack or breakfast idea! or even a birthday party dessert!!

The recipe has been adapted from Katsdeliciouskitchen . My friend Kat shares both on Instagram and on her blog healthy and yummy toddler and baby ideas that the whole family can enjoy too!! Check her out if you already don’t know her 😉

The procedure how to prepare the brownies is sooo simple that your toddler can make them, hi hi! I used the “throw everything in the food processor” technique.

I simply divided the wet ingredients from the dry one. I added in the food processor the avocado + milk + coconut oil first and blended for 1 minute.

On top of the creamy green mix I added the flour + baking powder + cocoa powder + salt. Closed and blended for another 2 minutes up until smooth.

To save on the clean up I simply removed the blades and added the chocolate chips directly in the food processor. You can also add any kind of nuts you like (chopped pecans are lovely!!!).

Spread the batter in a baking pan evenly and bake for 15-20 minutes. If you really really want to get a decadent result, spread some chocolate chips on top too!!

Let the brownies cool down for 5 minutes and cut them in small pieces, as small as you like!

Store in an air tight container at room temperature for 3/4 days.

    What size pan would you recommend using? Did you make this recipe with a metal, ceramic, and/or glass pan? Just trying to adjust my cooking time accordingly… 🙂 Thanks for the amazing vegan recipe!
