Fudgy Avocado Brownies

Fudgy Avocado Brownies

How could you possibly make a more decadent fudge brownie? Make fudgy avocado brownies.

These Fudgy Avocado Brownies are a wee more indulgent than regular brownies.

Avocados add a boost of healthy fats to the mix, which intensifies the flavor of chocolate making these healthier brownies ultra-rich.

Plus, these avocado brownies are gluten-free and so chocolaty and moist, you won’t even remember how healthy they are!

Pro tip: If you really want to go nuts, serve these fudgy brownies with this Peanut Butter Frosting made with Vanilla Shakeology.
