Um, what could be better than CHOCOLATE & AVOCADO?
My sister, Trish, made these AMAZING avocado brownies for Easter and sent me the recipe. They are absolutely delicious.
She got the recipe from healthmaven.com. I have pasted the instructions below and linked thehealthymaven blog.
Trish said that she substitutes coconut oil for applesauce when she makes them.
Let me know if you enjoy them as much as I did :)!
