I know what you guys are thinking…Avocado brownies?! That sounds disgusting! I was skeptical at first too but for reals, they are delicious!

I’m really excited to share this recipe with you! The best part about this recipe is that I love brownies. BUT I think I might love avocados even more, making this combination absolutely perfect in my eyes.

During my pregnancy I craved chocolate aallll the time and I would usually just eat it because… well the baby made me! But now that I am seven weeks postpartum and trying to get back into eating and living a healthy lifestyle, I can’t just give into sweets whenever I feel like it.

The other night I was craving chocolate like crazy but I didn’t want to eat unhealthy. You see my dilemma here?! INSTEAD, I decided to try to make chocolate brownies with healthy alternatives and they actually turned out pretty dang good in my opinion.

I am already thinking and dreaming of more healthy desserts to throw your way because I definitely have a sweet tooth at the moment (just kidding more like always).

Stay tuned!
