Chocolate Brownies with Avocado

Ingredients for two servings

3 scoops of Colnatur Complex Natural®

125 g 85% cocoa dark chocolate

2 eggs

30 g brown sugar

25 g toasted hazelnuts

10 g wheat flour

1 avocado

1 teaspoon bitter cocoa powder

1 teaspoon baking powder

A pinch of salt

 

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 ºC and then lower the temperature to 160 ºC.
  2. Cut the chocolate into small pieces and melt in the microwave on full power or in a bain-marie.
  3. Peel the avocado, remove the stone and mash it with a fork.
  4. Mix the avocado, melted chocolate and eggs in a bowl until well blended.
  5. Fold the Colnatur®, sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt into the previous mixture and mix until all the ingredients are well blended.
  6. Grease a baking tray with butter and flour or line with baking paper and pour the mixture into it.
  7. Arrange the chopped hazelnuts on top of the mixture.
  8. Bake at 160 ºC for around 25 minutes (depending on the size of the baking tray). To check if the brownie is done, prick the centre with a toothpick and if it comes out clean, it is ready (if it comes out wet, bake for a few more minutes and then prick again).
  9. Allow to cool and cut into three similar portions.

 

Comments

  • The hazelnuts are optional. We included them to give the brownie a crunchy texture. You can substitute them with walnuts, almonds or any other toasted or fresh nuts, or you can leave them out if you wish.
  • Use a chocolate with a high percentage of cocoa because it contains fewer calories and more nutrients, such as antioxidants, than chocolate with a lower cocoa content and milk chocolate.
