Fudgy Avocado Brownies

By Carolyn Williams, PhD, RD | April 13, 2020 | Rally Health

Kids will always give you honest feedback, good or bad. I knew I had a winner with these brownies when my two couldn’t get enough of them. This simple brownie recipe calls for about 50% less butter than traditional versions, thanks to the addition of mashed avocado. The healthy monounsaturated fats in avocado provide a fudgy texture while minimizing saturated fat and even adding a little fiber.
