These flourless brownies are seriously delicious, only take about 15 minutes to prep (faster if you don’t stand around licking the spoon like I did… no raw egg, so why not?) and feature some rockstar ingredients. Are you ready for this? Almond butter and avocado.

Yep, totally flourless brownies that include two of my favorite things, with a double chocolate twist from cocoa and chocolate chips.

The finished product is a brownie with that must-have delicate crispness on the top and sides and a dense and chocolate-y chewy center. I couldn’t eat just one, I may have cleaned off half the batch in a day. The only tweak I’ll experiment with next time is adding some strong black coffee. Enjoy!

P.S. These are also vegan (depending on the type of chocolate chips you buy) so everyone can enjoy.

I just got a fancy jar of nut butter that would be perfect for these! Thanks for sharing!

I bet these would work with sunbutter, too. Hmmmm… must make again as nut-free version!

Next week I should hopefully have almonds and chocolate back in my life, and when that happens, these brownies happen. Yay for egg-free baked goods!

I love avocado plain, hidden in brownies, on eggs, in smoothies… it’s seriously one of my favorites!

I’m amazed how little sweetener you managed to use, wonderful!

Reply
Grok Grub March 24, 2015 - 10:00 pm

Well, I have to admit that the full CUP of chocolate chips contributes quite a bit to the sweetness!

Do you think these would be good made with cashew butter instead?

Reply
Grok Grub March 30, 2015 - 4:09 pm

I think the color will be lighter and the flavor a tad different but I think it’s worth a try!

i’d love to make these with less nut butter – do you think I could replace half of the nut butter with apple butter, pumpkin, sweet potato, banana, or something like that??

Reply

Sweet potato might work… something pretty meaty.

I made these tonight they are soooooooo good. I was worried by the lack of egg but pleasantly surprised. I doubled the recipe and made it in a bigger pan and turned out great. They are so chocolately and moist it’s hard to believe its avacado in there!

Thanks, Chelsey! Yes, when I first made them I was curious if they’d work without egg… happy to report that they do. 🙂

What other thing could be used instead of the nibs?
