Before you start

Preheat oven at 180°C | Food processor | Lined baking tin

Making the batter

  • Put all the avocados into a food processor and whizz them up into a cream
  • Add the liquids through the top of the food processor as the avocados are being blended
  • Add the sugars, cocoa powder, salt and raising agents to the processor and mix them into the sweet avocado cream
  • Add the flours and blend them into the cream (pulse the flour until it’s mixed in, no longer - you don’t want to activate the gluten in the flour as it will alter the texture of your brownies)

Making the brownies

  • Pour the batter into a lined baking tin, smooth out the batter and push the broken chocolate pieces into the top of the brownies
  • Bake the brownies at 180°C (352°F) for 20-25 mins (don’t let them bake for too long - you want a gooey brownie!

Time to serve

  • Serve with dairy free ice cream and fresh raspberries
