Avocado Gluten Free Chocolate Brownies: Healthy Easy Trifle

 

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.

 Prep time:  15 mins
Cook time:  30 mins
Total time:  45 mins
 Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 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
Instructions
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Fold the chocolate into the avocados in a large mixing bowl.
  4. With an electric mixer, beat the remaining ingredients into the batter until smooth.
  5. Grease an 8×8 pan and pour the batter, smoothing out the edges.
  6. 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?

Happy Mixing!
