My healthier version of chocolate brownies. These rich and fudgy chocolate brownies are made with healthy ingredients including avocado, eggs, coconut oil, cacao and hazelnuts, sweetened with maple syrup. Free from gluten/grains, dairy, soy and refined sugar.
- 3 large free range eggs
- 1/2 cup (100g) ripe avocado, chopped
- 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
- 1/2 cup hazelnut meal
- 1/3 cup raw cacao powder
- 1 tsp vanilla bean powder
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup hazelnuts, chopped (for topping)
Pre-heat your fan-forced oven to 170C.
In your Vitamix blender add all of your ingredients (except the hazelnuts for topping), placing your wet ingredients in first.
Blend at low speed until smooth and well combined (use a spatular to scrape down sides if needed)
Pour brownie batter into a small, square cake tin lined with baking paper. (Use a spatula to get all of your batter out).
Sprinkle with chopped hazelnuts.
Bake in oven for 20 - 25 minutes.
Allow to cool. Slice into squares.
