When you mix my Avocado Brownies with my Healthy Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, you get a HEAVENLY combination that is rich and melts in your mouth. I love both of those recipes, because they are 1) delicious sweets and 2) made with high-quality ingredients. I am a firm believer in sweets being included in a healthy regime but love finding ways to make them better for our physical health. Give this gooey chocolatey recipe a try!
Brownies 1 large Ripe avocado, pitted and mashed
3 tbsp Oil of choice
½ cup Coconut Palm Sugar, unrefined (could technically use any unrefined sugar here)
¼ cup Stevia
3 large Eggs, beaten
1 tsp Vanilla extract
¼ cup Unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ tsp Baking soda
¼ tsp Salt
¼ cup Brown rice flour
Cookie Dough 1 cups Oat flour (for those who eat gluten, you can use spelt or all-purpose)
1/4 tsp Baking soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 cup Coconut palm sugar (you can also use unrefined sugar)
1/4 cup Almond milk, unsweetened
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
2 tbsp Oil of choice
1/3 cup Chocolate chips (use Vegan chocolate chips for dairy free and Vegan)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper, grease with cooking spray, and set aside.
Prepare the brownie batter-
In a blender or food processor, puree the avocado, oil, sugar, Stevia, eggs, and vanilla until smooth.
Add in the cocoa powder, baking soda, salt and flour. The mix will be thick and shiny.
Pour batter evenly into the prepared 9x13 pan. Set aside.
Prepare the cookie dough:
Whisk together dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, salt, and sugar)
Add in wet ingredients (milk, vanilla extract, oil). Mix until a dough is formed.
Fold in the chocolate chips. Chill dough by placing in the freezer for 15-20 minutes.
Roll into 12 balls. Place the balls evenly throughout the batter. DO NOT PRESS DOUGH FLAT (yet).
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until brownie batter is cooked through. When you take the baking dish out, the cookies will look underdone; that’s okay. Take a fork and press down each cookie until slightly flattened.
Let cool for 10 minutes, which will allow the cookies to firm up.
