Ingredients & Substitutions

Use one medium sized ripe avocado. This measures out to about ⅔ cup mashed avocado. In this recipe, avocado replaces eggs and butter.

Use 2 large ripe bananas. This adds natural sweetness and moisture to the brownies.

Creamy nut butter provides some substance. Use a creamy, all natural nut butter. The only ingredients should be nuts and salt. Do not use any nut butters with sugars or oils. Peanut butter, almond butter and cashew butter are great options. For nut free, use sunflower butter.

Regular and dark cocoa powder both work well.

Pure maple syrup adds sweetness. If needed, replace with honey, agave syrup, date syrup or a low carb liquid sweetener.

Any type of chocolate chips work! Sugar free, dairy free, Vegan, or regular are all good options. In addition, chopped chocolate, white chocolate chips and mini chocolate chips can be used.
