I have to admit, I was a bit suspicious of this recipe for Avocado Brownies, but I decided to give it a shot. Apparently all I need is a box of brownie mix, ripe avocados and water.
I combined the brownie mix with 2/3 cup of mashed avocado and 1/3 cup water. It looked like regular brownie batter in the bowl. To hedge my bets on the level of chocolate, I decided to add two generous handfuls of these bad boys.
I poured the batter into a greased pan and baked it according to the directions on the box.I had to bake them a few minutes extra to make sure the brownies were done.
While these brownies were chocolatey, they were a bit more cake-like than I enjoy. I like my brownies more fudgey so that was a bit disappointing. I used avocados that were just ripe so maybe next time I would use ones that are almost overripe. That might improve the texture. Dusted with a little powdered sugar, they were pretty good. Not as good as real brownies, but a nice treat.
