Hubby and I have been on a healthy baking kick as of late– well, he bakes while I photograph and eat! His latest creation may be the best yet– insanely rich and gooey marbled chocolate brownie bars– with no flour! Seriously, this guy is amazing– he scours the internet for ideas and tries different combinations of ingredients until he finds something that is both healthy and decadent. MY talents are taste-testing and documenting–not a bad gig!
These brownie bars are incredibly easy, which is definitely something I look for in a recipe (just in case I ever attempt it myself while hubby is at work.) I won’t even try something that looks the slightest bit confusing or time-consuming– who has hours to spend in the kitchen with two kids running (and crawling) around?? The marbling is caused by the candy coating melting into the brownie batter while cooking– you don’t have to make a separate batter, or swirl anything. And did I mention these are delicious?
Here’s what you need:
- 2 large avocados
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup natural chocolate candies (the natural food coloring is essential for the marbling effect)
STEP 1: Add the flesh of two avocados to food processor with 1/2 cup coconut sugar and 1 cup cocoa powder. Blend until smooth.
STEP 2: Add eggs and baking soda. Pulse until eggs are just mixed into batter– you don’t want to over-beat them.
STEP 3: Fold chocolate candies into batter.
STEP 4: Spread batter into 8×10 baking pan (8×8 would also work well for slightly thicker brownies.) Bake at 350° for 15 minutes. Cool thoroughly before cutting and serving. Keep refrigerated.
