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 these avocado chocolate brownies with prunes! 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 oil or butter while providing heart-healthy fats. I've really gotten into cooking with avocados recently. The walnuts add a lovely crunch and add filling fiber to these avocado chocolate brownies.

 

So next time you're looking for a good brownie recipe that's also gluten free, whip up these chocolate prune brownies! You just need a good gluten-free flour on hand.
