Avocado Brownies with Frosting

Ingredients:

For Brownies

  •         2 large ripe avocados, mashed as well as you can (about 1 1/8 cups)
  •         8 ounces raw cacao powder, melted
  •         1 cup stevia
  •         2 large whole eggs
  •         1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  •         3/4 cup nuts flour
  •         1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  •         3 tablespoons olive oil
  •         4 ounces high-quality raw cacao, chopped

For Frosting

  •         1 large ripe avocado
  •         2 1/2 cups stevia
  •         1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

For Brownies:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally spray a 9-inch square pan with non-stick spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk mashed avocado and raw cocoa powder. Whisk in stevia until combined, then add in eggs and vanilla extract, mixing well.
  3. Add in nuts flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt, mixing with a large spoon until JUST combined – do not over mi.
  4. Stir in olive oil until it’s well distributed and batter is somewhat smooth.
  5. Fold in chopped raw cocoa, then spread batter in pan. Bake for 28-32 minutes, or until middle is set.
  6. Remove and let cool completely, then frost and top with grated chocolate if desired.

For Frosting:
Add avocado to the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until mashed and creamy. With the mixer on low speed, add in vanilla then slowly add in stevia, scraping down the sides if needed, until a smooth frosting forms. Frost brownies once cooled.

Note: I placed these in the fridge (covered thoroughly with plastic wrap) to store and when eaten immediately from the fridge, they can be even denser and slightly dry, so I recommend letting them come to room temp or even placing them in the microwave.

    One more question: Is there any kind of flour besides Tiger Nuts flour that can be used in this recipe?

      Hi Ann! You combine it with warm coconut oil, stevia and vanilla. It will come out like chocolate sauce. To warm coconut oil, just put the jar directly in a pot of water that has been warmed to a simmer and turned off, and wait for it to liquefy. There are other options on how to melt cocoa powder, you just have to choose which one works the best for you. Hope this helps!

      Hi Ann! Apples are not allowed in Phase 3. You can only have stevia or xylitol as sweeteners in FMD. Hope this helps!

        I am confused with the cacoa in this recipe. The ingredients call for 8 oz raw cacoa powder.
        Step2 and step 4 call for cacoa.
        How much do you need to melt and how much do you need for step 4 ?
        Thank you.
