  • Method:

Melt the chocolate, stirring until smooth.  Remove form heat and set aside.

Place the avocado into a food processor or blender (I used my NutriBullet) and blend until smooth.

Measure this until you have 1 cup of avocado puree.

Stir the coconut flour and raw cocoa powder until the mixture is smooth.

Pour the batter into the prepared tray and spread evenly making sure the corners are also filled whilst smoothing the top.

Bake for 15-20 minutes (depending on your oven) or until the top is firm to the touch. Remove from oven to cool completely, only lift out the tray once completely cool.

Avocado Frosting:
Place all frosting ingredients into the blender or food processor. Bled the frosting until smooth adding more coca powder or maple syrup as needed. Spread the frosting over the top of the brownies and cut into squares.
