Healthy Chocolate Brownies

Hello lovelies,
As you may know I have a Healthy Chocolate Mousse recipe that I am slightly obsessed with – if you don’t know it yet check it at out here. Well this recipe includes avocado and banana to create chocolate flavoured heaven so I thought I would try to recreate that in the form of brownies. And here is the result of that! Healthy Chocolate Brownies.

All you will need:
50g Good Quality Dark Chocolate (I used 81%)
50g Coconut Oil
2 Eggs
1 Avocado
1 Ripe Banana
4 Dates
3 tbsp Cacao
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
150g Ground Almonds
1 tsp Baking Powder
Extra Sweetener of Choice (maybe)

Pre-Heat your oven at 180 degrees C.

In a saucepan at a low heat melt the chocolate and coconut oil.

With the back of a fork/food processor, blend the banana, avocado and dates. Add all the dry ingredients (ground almonds, baking powder and cacao) to the banana, avocado, date mixture. Add the vanilla extract too!

Then you can pour in the chocolate and coconut oil mixture, but you want to make sure that it has cooled a little.

And lastly you can add the eggs, but you need to make sure the mixture is cool so that you don’t scramble the eggs.

At this point you can taste test and add a bit of sweetener if you think it is necessary. I would use agave syrup but you could use honey or any other sweetener you prefer.

Finally, pour the chocolate mixture into a square or rectangle baking tray or muffin holders. I would use grease proof paper so that you don’t have issues with removing the brownies from the tray.

Bake for 20-25min. Let them cool for 15min before cutting them up into pieces.
I made 8 big brownie pieces from this recipe but you can cut them however you would like.

Enjoy your guilt free chocolate treat!

Let me know if you try the recipe and use the hashtag #debsterariella on Instagram so I can find all your delicious creations!
Looking forward to it,
