I had fun this weekend experimenting with recipes and of course using my favourite tool: my KitchenAid Mixer. I honestly use it for everything I do, and it’s the one thing in my kitchen I could not live without. It’s always on my counter, just calling my name to create something delicious. Plus, it doubles as a decorative piece!
I had a sweet tooth craving, and found an avocado in my kitchen. What’s a girl to do? So I searched online and discovered this EASY and simple recipe found on TGIPaleo. This recipe is a keeper. The only thing I changed is that the brownies needed an extra 15+ minutes in the oven, but that could just be due to my oven temperature being off.
- 4 oz Baking Chocolate or Chocolate Chips
- 1 T Coconut Oil
- 2 Large Avocados (1 c puree…give or take)
- ½ c Honey or Maple Syrup
- ¼ c Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- 1 T Vanilla
- 1 T Coconut Flour
- 3 Eggs
- ½ t Baking Soda
- ½ t Gluten Free Baking Powder
- ½ t Salt
- In a microwave safe bowl, stir together the coconut oil ans baking chocolate and nuke for about 20 seconds at a time until melted, stirring in between so it doesn’t curdle.
- Puree the avocados in a food processor(This is where I used my KitchenAid Mixer, and it was powerful enough to do the trick!)–make sure there are NO LUMPS. We want brownies, not guac.
- Fold the chocolate into the avocados in a large mixing bowl.
- With an electric mixer, beat the remaining ingredients into the batter until smooth.
- Grease an 8×8 pan and pour the batter, smoothing out the edges.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 30 mins. Cool and serve.
SO good…. 🙂
Then I got the idea to keep going with the fun of my KitchenAid Mixer, and made an avocado pudding (you can search for any kind, there are a lot to choose from), to make a trifle. I added chocolate chips and skor bits…Voila! Did I mention this was all gluten free?
