Why You Must Try This Brownie Recipe

 

When my boyfriend, Lawrence, recently started a gluten-free diet, I was met with a challenge.

 

I'd never really delved into gluten-free baking before, and let's just say my first few experiments with baking and making brownies were ultimate flops. Lawrence was kind pretended to like them, though!

 

We got together with some friends this past weekend, and I was determined to bring the best homemade brownies. Of course, I wanted to make a dessert that was gluten free and healthy. Enter this avocado brownie recipe! Making brownies with prunes reduces the need for added sugar while adding bone-helping minerals.

 

And this brownie recipe is without butter! Why? The avocados replace any need for butter or coconut oil while providing heart-healthy fats. 

 

The cocoa and prunes make it so that you can't taste the avocado. I've really gotten into cooking with avocados recently. The walnuts add a lovely crunch and add filling fiber to these gluten free chocolate brownies.

 

You'll also see that the recipe has minimal added sugar, with no maple syrup, granulated sugar, brown sugar, or dark chocolate chips. They contain just 1/2 cup of coconut palm sugar (aka coconut sugar) for the entire delicious recipe. 

 

You'll also see that there's no almond flour or coconut flour in this recipe. You just need a good gluten-free flour on hand. Want to make your own gluten-free flour?

 

The chocolate avocado brownies are also easy to make, taking no more than 25 minutes to prep. Go ahead and grab your high-speed blender or food processor and a baking dish and  get started!

 

So next time you're looking for a good brownie recipe that's also gluten free, whip up these chocolate prune brownies! Find out more about hidden sources of gluten, too.
