Why You Must Try This Brownie Recipe

When I originally created this recipe, my fiance, Lawrence, had recently started a gluten-free diet. He’s no longer following this diet, but I am, and so I welcome any scrumptious gluten-free desserts. 

Before creating this brownie recipe, I’d never really delved into gluten-free baking before. Let’s just say my first few experiments with baking and making brownies were ultimate flops. Lawrence was nice enough to pretend to like them, though!

Now, years later, I consider this to yield the best homemade brownies. I’ve served them to friend and family. My family loved this recipe when I fed the brownies to them, which was awhile ago since we haven’t socialized recently due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Enter this avocado brownie recipe! Now, read on to find out why the avocado walnut brownies are good for you.

These Avocado Brownies are Healthy!

Brownies that are nutritious? Yup, it’s possible, and these chocolate and prune brownies are just that. In fact, making brownies with prunes reduces the need for added sugar while adding bone-helping minerals. And prunes are gluten free.

These dairy-free brownies are super tasty. The brownie recipe is without butter! Why? The avocados replace any need for butter or coconut oil while providing heart-healthy fats. 

The cocoa and prunes in the healthy avocado brownies make it so that you can’t taste the avocado. I’ve really gotten into cooking with avocados recently. The walnuts add a lovely crunch and add filling fiber to these gluten free chocolate brownies.

You’ll also see that these easy avocado brownies have minimal added sugar, with no maple syrup, granulated sugar, brown sugar, or dark chocolate chips. There’s no entire cup of sugar in this recipe! The healthy avocado brownies contain just 1/2 cup of coconut palm sugar (aka coconut sugar) for an entire delicious recipe. 

You’ll also see that there’s no almond flour or coconut flour in this recipe. You just need a good gluten-free flour on hand. Want to make your own gluten-free flour?

And finally, the chocolate avocado brownies are easy to make, taking no more than 25 minutes to prep. Go ahead and grab your high-speed blender or food processor and a baking dish and  get started!

So next time you’re looking for a good brownie recipe that’s also gluten free, whip up these chocolate prune brownies! Find out more about hidden sources of gluten, too.
