Avocado Brownies

reheat the oven to 350Fº / 180Cº. Place ½ cup whole hazelnuts on a tray and roast them in the oven for more flavor.

Make a puree with:
- ¼ cup of mashed avocado
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 2 teaspoons instant coffee dissolved in ¾ cup water (optional)

Dry mix:
- 1 cup of all-purpose wheat flour
- ½ cup of cocoa powder
- ¾ brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon of baking powder
- ½ tablespoon of salt
- Pieces of chocolate (If on hand and no one has eaten already)

Crush the hazelnuts into course chunks. Combine the puree (wet mix) and dry mix + hazelnuts. Mix well and spread dough into a pre-greased baking tin.

Bake for at least 20 minutes and intermittently check with a toothpick whether brownies are cooked but still gooey in the center, there is the risk to over-bake the brownies which will result in a dry and cakey texture so keep a close eye. I went up to 30 minutes, the edges were properly cooked but the center was perfect.

Let it cool and voila! Kids won't believe you did it with avocado! I don't think you do either. 😉
