Carla Hall’s Avocado Brownies



Time for the second round of the Blogging Marathon #78! While I was scouring through the themes, I was a little confused on which one to select. Finally I ended up selecting the theme “Let Them Eat Brownies”! While I had gone through the heart attack of having to make three cheesecakes in two weeks last time, this time I thoroughly checked my drafts, ensured I had at least two drafts of brownies so that I had minimum baking. To my excitement, I had three to cover just enough for the marathon! That is one advantage of having too much in the drafts, I suppose! πŸ˜€




The first brownie I choose to share with you are these delicious avocado brownies. These were my first trial of brownies with avocados, even though the only one that appeared on the blog was the vegan version. I had initially made these to carry it for my friend, while going to see her. I clicked the pictures, didn’t even eat a piece and carried the whole bake to her house. Once I came back, she messaged me saying that the brownies were amazing. I checked my camera to see some pathetic pictures looking back at me. So it got pushed off to “make-them-again” list.


Finally I made them again, this time in my 4 inch pan, just enough to satisfy our cravings. They were amazing! The butter + avocados together gives it so much moistness that they literally stick all over your mouth! πŸ˜€ The recipe I am sharing here is for a normal brownie pan, adapted from hereΒ with not much change except the quantity of sugar. The recipe can be easily halved to make a 4×4 inch brownie. If you do land up with some ripe avocados and wondering what to do with them, then park them up into these delicious brownies!

    Avocado are so versatile to add in any desssert. Brownies are so sinful looking.

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      Thanks a lot Sapana…

  15. All the recipes that I’ve seen so far use avocado as a replacement for butter/oil. This, with the added butter, must have been super rich, I am sure.

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      Thank you so much Jayashree… definitely super rich, with the avocado replacing a part of the butter…

  16. 5 stars
    I am not an avocado fan but I suppose the chocolate will cover the flavor of the avocado

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      You will not even know the avocado in it… Thanks a lot Mir…

  17. looks delish rafee! rich drafts collection da, i try to build a draft like yours and pj, our draft queen! Hoping to achieve one day!!!
    I have never tried a brownie in a long time, the brownie theme this month is too much, and i have a long bookmark list now!

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      Somehow having a draft bank is also very irritating, that you post sometimes ages after making a dish! Hehe… though it is helpful at times like this! Thank you so much Priya…
