Avocado Brownies with Peanut Butter Swirl

Avocado Brownies with Peanut Butter Swirl

I’ve  been using avocado lately in salads and other savory dishes where you would expect it but I decided to try out avocado in something sweet and I was really happy with the results!  I replaced all the butter in these brownies with avocado and it turned out really delicious!  I’m a big fan of peanut butter with chocolate so I decided to swirl some on top.  The result is brownies that are fudgy and deeply chocolaty with just the right amount of peanut butter.  

Avocado Brownies with Peanut Butter Swirl

There are many reasons to love avocados: their creamy taste, their impressive fiber content, about 2 grams per ounce, and the many vitamins (B6, C, K, folate…) they contain. Plus, the potassium helps to regulate blood pressure and the healthy fats are very beneficial.  

I found this side by side comparison of avocado vs. butter:

Wow!  Quite the difference!  Even though you should still eat these brownies in moderation I feel A LOT better about them!  🙂

Mississippi Mud Brownies

Dessert, Entertaining | December 9, 2014 | By

I was seriously craving chocolate after seeing all the Christmas dessert recipes all over the web and this brownie really delivers on ooey-gooey, nutty, chocolatey yumminess!  

These brownies have lots of chocolate!  There is a dense, chocolatey, nutty brownie layer on the bottom, on top of that are the marshmallows, and then you top all of that with a layer of chocolate frosting!  You really need to try these for yourself!

You’re definitely going to want a glass of milk with these!  These are super easy to throw together.  You’ll definitely want to share these, well maybe… 🙂  This recipe makes 24 brownies and I don’t think even I can eat that many, and I LOVE brownies!
