Ingredients

Wet Mix

  • 1 cup avocado mashed approx. 1 large
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup -1 tablespoon*
  • 1 tbsp. Molasses* (optional)
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 flax eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Dry Mix

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat or unbleached flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. Himalayan salt

Extras

  • 1/4 cup walnuts coarsely chopped (optional)

Flax (or Chia) Egg (makes one egg)

  • 3 tbsp. Water
  • 1 tbsp. Ground flax or chia seeds

Instructions

  1. Let your flax eggs, avocado, and maple syrup stand at room temperature for about 30 minutes.

  2. Preheat oven to 350F and lightly grease an 8x8 baking pan. I use coconut oil.

  3. In a small bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.
  4. Place your avocado, maple syrup, vanilla, molasses (if used), and coconut sugar in a medium bowl, blender pitcher, or food processor and blend until smooth. If adding any extras that come in powder form (such as maca), add these at this stage as well.
  5. Add your eggs in the wet mix and vigorously whisk for about a minute to aerate the batter.

  6. Transfer your wet mix to a medium bowl (if needed).
  7. Pour your dry mix into your wet mix about half at a time and with a wooden spoon, gently stir until completely blended. Be mindful not to overmix.

  8. Then add your walnuts (or other extras) and gently fold into the mix just until blended.

  9. Pour batter into the baking pan and bake in oven for 30-35 minutes until toothpick comes out mostly clean.
  10. Let cool on a baking rack for at least 15 minutes before serving. Best if you let it rest for at least 2 hours. Will keep in a covered container for up to a week.

Recipe Notes

*If you are using the molasses, take out one tablespoon of maple syrup. This is a basic brownie recipe so all sorts of nuts will work as well as chocolate chips or cacao nibs for extras. This is also great with a tablespoon of maca powder.
