Easy vegan avocado brownies might sound like vegan voodoo-witchcraft, but these are the real deal! Imagine the creamiest brownies you’ve had, but cranked up another 5 notches.. those are these vegan avocado brownies! Even better, banana is used to help reduce the amount of sugar, without sacrificing flavor. Win win!

Easy Vegan Avocado Brownies, for the Win!

I know what you’re thinking: “Avocados in a brownie? This dude has lost his mind!”

Don’t knock it ’till you try it, Carol!
(I hope someone named Carol just freaked out!)

Haha! All joking aside, these secretly healthy brownies could fool the most devout choco-holic (me included!).

They’re:

  • Ooey,
  • Gooey,
  • Moist,
  • Chocolatey-to-the-max,
  • Goodness

Seriously, words cannot describe the perfection of these brownies! They are exactly what I’ve been dreaming of after all these years as a vegan.

Customizable Taste for Everyone

First, I want to start by saying: NO! You don’t taste the avocado or banana in this recipe. I want brownies that taste like chocolate, not produce!

Furthermore, my boyfriend is really sensitive to sweets. Anything overly-sweet (in his opinion), results in a raging headache that I get to hear about for the rest of the night (*sigh*). I, on the other hand, could eat pure sugar with a spoon and be craving it for a week. Neither situation is ideal!

For these reasons, I love experimenting to find the perfect balance of sweetness. These vegan avocado brownies hit the nail on the head!

They’re sweet enough that you know you’re eating a brownie, but balanced enough so I don’t hear any complaints about headaches. Yippee!

My secret weapon? Over-ripe bananas! They’re bursting with plant-based sweetness, so the addition allows me to cut back on other sugars.

That being said, if you’re one that loves super-sweet desserts, you can omit the banana in place of more sugar. Although, since you can’t taste the banana to begin with, I’m not sure why anyone would want to..

Vegan Avocado Brownies for Every Occasion!

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: Shareable food is the best kind of food!

I actually made these brownies for a friend’s birthday! Unfortunately, they were so good that Cameron and I ate them all before sharing. (Sorry, Jessi! I’ll make another batch just for you 😘)

That being said, these vegan avocado brownies are the perfect party treat. Easy to make, store, travel with, and disappear, these brownies are the best party dessert imaginable! Trust me, bring a pan to your next vegan get-together and you’ll leave with an empty tray. Talk about easy clean-up! 😉

Ingredients

  • 1 medium-sized ripe avocado, skin and pit removed
  • 1 banana, peeled
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar (preferably raw, coconut, or date)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 tablespoons non-dairy milk (as needed)
  • For Decoration
  • 2-3 Tablespoons nut butter (the smoother the better!)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Blend the avocado, banana, and milk in a blender until smooth
  3. Whisk the dry ingredients in a separate large bowl
  4. Pour the wet into the dry ingredients and stir with spatula until evenly mixed
  5. Add 1-2 tablespoons of milk as needed to reach desired consistency
  6. Spread batter evenly into a 8x11-ish glass dish, either greased or lined with parchment paper
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick is removed cleanly from center
  8. Allow to cool completely before attempting to decorate or cut
  9. To Decorate
  10. I simply squeezed smooth almond butter on the tops using a piping bag. Similarly, you can cut a small hole in a zip-lock bag for the same result.

    April 8, 2017 at 10:07 pm You should weigh your ingredients for your recipes. 1 Banana peeled? That could vary in quantity greatly. Reply

      April 10, 2017 at 12:47 pm To be honest, I've made this recipe several times using many different bananas and they've all been fantastic. I'm sure as long as you're using an average-sized banana you should be fine! Reply

    May 5, 2017 at 3:41 pm Just made these, yummm. I added some chocolate chips and only used all-purpose flour and the brownies came out great, thanks. I really like that they're not sickly sweet like a lot of recipes. Reply

      May 5, 2017 at 3:59 pm Yum, that sounds awesome! That's a huge reason why I love these so much, regular brownies are sickeningly sweet. I'm so glad you enjoyed them :) Reply

    September 6, 2017 at 1:14 pm Made these and they are fab- I added some 81% dark chocolate chips instead of the nut butter. They are so lovely and moist and i can't believe how little calories are in them!!! Reply
