Dark Chocolate Avocado Brownies
Who knew Dessert could be healthy? At first I was skeptical, but then I fell in love with these easy Dark Chocolate Avocado Brownies I developed in partnership with Produce for Kids. See all my healthy kid-friendly Produce for Kids Recipes here.
When Produce for Kids first asked me to develop an avocado brownie recipe, my response was, “Ewwww.”
And every time that I’ve told anybody about these brownies, their response has been, “Ewwwww.”
But when they taste them, they always say, “Yum!”
And if I hadn’t told them, they would have no idea that there are great nutrients inside that delicious fudge treat.
I think what does it for these brownies is that I used dark chocolate chips and extra dark cocoa. Both are available at regular grocery stores in the baking aisle. I think that extra dark flavor masks the avocado and brings so much depth to the brownie.
As for texture, I wanted something fudgy and not cakey. But I didn’t want them to be dense either.
I went with very little flour. Whole-wheat flour at that. And instead of baking powder and baking soda for leavening, which can give that cake-like texture, I used four beaten eggs. The combination of eggs with very little flour results in fluffy but fudgy soft brownies with a tiny bit of chew.
I know you’re going to love making brownie recipe for your kids, knowing that it’s a treat with some good stuff in it for them.
Why is my recipe over at the Produce for Kids site? For the past few years Produce for Kids and I have been working together to come up with family-friendly healthy recipes. I develop new recipes for them and photograph those and a whole bunch more. This year we’ve teamed up again with another round of healthy recipes to share with you. This is one of them. You can see all of my Produce for Kids recipes here.
Produce for Kids is a healthy family resource that offers meal planning tools and healthy recipes for your family. All of the recipes are approved by a registered dietitian for containing all the nutrients your kids need (and not too much of the things they don’t). All nutritional info for each recipe is given as well.
Disclosure: Produce for Kids is a client of mine. They paid me to develop this recipe, to photograph the recipe, to post about it on my blog and to promote it on social media. All opinions are my own.
