Avocado Chocolate Brownies

Avocado chocolate brownies…. the perfect way to use up ripe avocados and all that Easter chocolate!   My children (both of whom are NOT avocado fans) gobbled these up even after learning they contained the dreaded avocado – that is definitely a win for mummy!

We enjoyed this on a picnic yesterday & also warmed up in the microwave with a large dollop of clotted cream
For a vegan option, use ‘chia eggs’

    How is it vegan if it has eggs in it?

      Yes, the main recipe is not vegan, but I mentioned, you can use chia eggs instead to make it vegan in the main post – will add that to the recipe ingredients – thank you for the feedback!
