These brownies are rich, fudgy, delicious, and just so happen to be healthier than most brownies. All you’ll need is a box of brownie mix and a couple of ripe avocados.Sink your teeth into skinny avocado brownies, your pre-season tickets to poolside confidence.
- 1 (10-20 oz.) pkg. brownie mix
- ⅔ c. mashed avocado
- ⅓ c. water
- Prep a 9x9" square baking dish (for thick brownies) or a 9x13" dish by greasing it or lining with parchment paper.
- Stir together brownie mix, avocado, and water until combined. Bake as directed on the brownie mix package erring on the side of baking a minute or two more than normal.
- To cut picture perfect brownies, slice into cooled brownies with a plastic knife.
Let’s compare the calories of regular brownie mix add-ins (2 eggs and 1/2 c. oil) to using a fresh, wholesome avocado. This is the calorie count of the add-ins only, not the calories per brownie, which will vary depending on the mix you choose.The numbers speak for themselves. The best part is that even your toughest critic will never suspect there’s nutritious avocado stuffed into these deliciously indulgent chocolate brownies.
These brownies are life-changing.
I’ve successfully baked these brownies using the same measurements of avocado and water with both a 10.5oz. package of Betty Crocker fudge brownie mix and the KING of all boxed brownie mixes, a 20 oz. Ghirardelli triple chocolate brownie mix. Since I’m a chocoholic, naturally I recommend the Ghirardelli mix to stun your brownie connoisseurs. It’s just plain fabulous.Since I can’t just leave these skinny avocado brownies well enough alone, there are majorly droolworthy new spins on brownies coming your way soon.
