Healthy Avocado Protein Brownies

It’s avocado season.

It’s 2 for $1 at Sprouts?

Must buy lots of avocados.

*Goes home and realizes I bought way too many many & can’t finish all of them in time*

I like brownies.

I will make brownies.

I will use this extra ripe avocado.


I had to make this recipe a second time with some extra changes to make it a little better and I must say they turned out the second round! NOW, I need someone to eat them all. Who volunteers?

I love how avocado is such a great replacement for butter! Avocados packs a bunch of nutrients in just 1 fruit and has more Potassium than a banana! It include many vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin K & Folate!

Avocados are great on toast, in sandwiches & salads. BUT ALSO brownies!! Um, yes please!! You need to try this recipe out.
