Vegan Avocado Brownies

While trying to finalize what to do for this month’s 3 back-to-back theme, I was in a little confusion. Initially I had decided to do “mango” as the theme, but since I preferred eating my mango more than cooking with it and already the net is flooded with variety of mango recipes, I decided to not go ahead with it. Then I thought about strawberries – one fruit that I have seen is continuously available from some country or the other over the past few months. Β Even though I had the recipes for the theme, somehow I wasn’t really convinced of doing it, so dropped the idea. And then finally settled for what you are going to see from today, for the next three days on the blog… πŸ™‚

 

Those who read my blog regularly are already aware that I am currently on a vegan diet. Ever since, I have been making treats only on weekends and it is always vegan, so that I could have it as well. The meal would be a vegetarian rice cooked in oil and a non-veg side to satisfy the rest in the family. But I can’t compromise that much on the sweet dish, can I? πŸ˜‰ Since I love to bake, I have decided to post three successful vegan bakes, 3 recipes in a row, from today. Ready? I am ready… πŸ™‚

After the papaya cake, my spirits were pretty high to makes some cakes and experiment. The first one I baked in the process were these brownies. As usual I was apprehensive, but look at what goes in – avocados, olive oil and coffee! Till the bake came out of the oven, I was tensed. I was really not sure about the texture but I was seriously in for a big surprise. These brownies were surprisingly fudgy and moist! I kept it to cool overnight and cut them the next day, but still they were melt in the mouth. I made these the previous day of the Zomato conference last month and fed a piece each to Humi, Faji and Anamika, and they loved it, the best part being that they couldn’t believe that the brownies were vegan! I have shared the version here with a mix of flours. I have made it with wholewheat flour alone again but I would suggest that the best is the mix of both flours! πŸ˜€ Off to the recipe…

 

I hope you are sincerely excited as much as I am regarding this series… πŸ™‚

  • Whisk the mashed avocado and olive oil till smooth. Add all the other ingredients except the chocolate chips and fold in till well combined.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips.

I have used normal chocolate chips into half the batter since mine weren't vegan. I added it for the kids and had the portion which didn't have the chocolate chips.

  3. Interesting! As much as I love brownies I must say I have never attempted it anytime! I have no doubts about how good this must be tasting because I know your are brownie queen! I am still in awe about the brownies you gave me when we first met – that is totally fat free and I never knew until I asked about it much later! πŸ˜› First thing I thought was omg there is chocolate chips, then I read your notes! must have had couple more dishes to do πŸ˜› Liked the way you have stacked the brownies with paper like the source! Can’t wait to know what more you have to share.. Not a vegan and never will be but these are great for weight watchers isnt it?

      There are chocolate chips that are vegan available… but not much around here. I got some drops from our office which is dark chocolate and don’t have any dairy as its ingredient, so you can imagine how excited I am! πŸ˜€ Thank you so much Fami…
