Wet Ingredients

  • 1 large avocado
  • 2 eggs
  • 85 ml maple syrup This is one third of a cup, the brownie does also work with less maple syrup, it can be reduced to one quarter of a cup.
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla essence optional

Dry Ingredients

  • 110 g ground almond 1 Cup
  • 80 g cocoa This is half a cup
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 80 g dark chocolate chips To ensure the recipe is dairy free check the chocolate you use is dairy free


  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius or approximately 360 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Line a cake tin with baking paper or parchment paper, or use a silicone tin. The tin I used was 20cm x 17cm (approx. 8 x 7 inches)
  • Place the wet ingredients into your food processor (avocado, egg, maple syrup, and vanilla (optional) Blitz until you have a lovely smooth green purée
  • Add the dry ingredients, excluding the chocolate chips (ground almond, cocoa and baking powder). Pulse until the mixture comes together to a well-combined consistent batter
  • Add the chocolate chips, pulse until they are just incorporated into the batter.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared cake tin I stud the top of the brownie with a few extra dark chocolate drops, it is an optional step but makes the brownie look even more appealing
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes until the top of the brownie is set and when you pierce the brownie with a toothpick it comes out clean Allow to cool in the tin
  • Lift the cooled brownie out of the tin, Slice into 16 pieces


This avocado brownie can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week, or it can be frozen for up to 3 months.
