Avocado Brownies


I’m on a cleanse AND I’ve been eating sugar-free for a week…and I’ve spent this week making sweets for others! Plus, my youngest daughter turns 5 in a few days, so there’s a birthday cake in the works.

I need chocolate. Bad.

These avocado brownies hit the spot! Note: if they turn out too eggy/spongey, you may have overmixed the batter!
