These are, from now on my absolute favourite. The avocado really does it here. They’re so creamy and fudgy, yet cakey enough to have a decent non sticky bite. And so good for you.
Full of fibre and healthy fats and no refined sugar either. Can life get any better? Yes it can if you add chocolate chips, the big ones. Whoo hoo.
I know I’m a bit of a chocolate chip addict, but I just can’t imagine eating a brownie without chocolate chips. Life is all about balance. Super healthy brownies with a small amount of chocolate chips. That’s fine, really.
They’re simplicity itself to make, everything goes in the food processor, first the beans, then the melted coconut oil. Then you just keep on adding with the motor still running. Not the chips, they’re added after the processing.
