There are certain times in a woman’s life when all she wants is a big bite of something rich and chocolaty. You know the feeling. I have always been horrible at keeping track of my cycle, but I’m usually able to realize it’s on the way when I get that urge to find all the chocolate.
During that time of the month, I love indulging in a brownie (or three). What I’ve done though is make a better-for-you brownie using avocados. Avocados are a great way to get some healthy fat in without sacrificing that flavor we all crave. Plus, the magnesium from the avocados help with cramps!
- 2 ripe avocados, mashed
- 8 oz semi-sweet chocolate, melted
- ½ cup light brown sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- ¾ cup flour
- ¼ cup cocoa powder
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl (or I used our food processor), mix avocados and melted chocolate until smooth and creamy.
- Add in sugar and eggs. Mix until well combined.
- In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
- Stir into chocolate avocado mixture until just combined.
- Spread batter into prepared pan.
- Bake about 30 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.
And because we’re talking about delicious things for you to snack on during that time of the month, I also want to share a new find with you.
