Avocado brownie

Cashew nut butter frosting


Brownie batter

  • Preheat the oven to 350 °F/180 °C.
  • In a cup, make 3 "Chia eggs" by mixing the milled chia seeds with water and letting it sit for 5 minutes, it will turn into a goopy, egg-like texture.
  • Add avocado flesh, unsweetened applesauce, chia eggs and vanilla extract to your blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
  • Mix in xylitol, coconut flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, sea salt and gluten-free baking powder and mix until well combined.
  • Line an 8x8 inch baking dish with baking paper and add the batter.
  • Place in oven to bake for 30 minutes (slightly less for fudgier brownies or slightly longer for more cake-like brownies). You can insert a wooden skewer into the centre to test if the brownies are done, if it comes out mostly clean with only a view dry crumbs sticking to it it's fine. In case there is wet dough clinging to it you want to bake it for approximately another 7-8 minutes.
  • Let cool completely before adding the frosting.

Cashew nut butter frosting

  • In a small bowl, make the frosting by mashing the avocado with a fork very well. Stir in the cashew butter and maple syrup and mix again. Add the cacao powder and coconut milk. Mix everything together until it’s smooth.
  • Put the frosting into the fridge to firm up until the brownie has cooled completely.
  • Spread the frosting on top of the brownies with a spatula, cut the brownie into 9 squares and enjoy.
