Avocado Brownies

Yup, I said avocado.  The best part?  No one will ever know your secret ingredient! 

What You'll Need:

2 avocados, pureed (done best in a food processor)

1/4 c REAL maple syrup

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp pure vanilla extract 

3 eggs

1/2 c coconut flour

1/2 c raw cocoa powder 

1/4 c 70% (or darker) chocolate chips 

coconut oil


Preheat oven to 400*

Combine all ingredients.  Mix well.  Transfer to a greased (I love using coconut oil here; adds a little bit of sweetness) pie pan, or 8x11 baking dish.

Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until a fork comes out clean.

Vegan Chocolate Custard

Because it's legal to satisfy a sweet tooth with something that is good for you.
