Tools for recipes
Use an 8×8 or 9×9 pan which is going to be best for nonstick brownies. You’ll find the brownies can easily stick to the pan if you don’t.
Reach for a food processor or high-speed blender for this recipe. This is necessary to get the right consistency of brownie batter. Otherwise it may bake up with a different texture.
Helpful Tips for Avocado Brownies
Choose ripe avocados
Make sure your avocados are ripe, soft and easy to mash. This will ensure that the texture of your brownie is smooth and creamy.
Allow brownies to cool before slicing
Let the brownies cool in the pan for at least 30 minutes before slicing. This will allow them to set and make a cleaner cut. This allows the brownies to set completely which is what a brownie needs
Quality cocoa powder
Be sure to use quality cocoa that is going to ensure you have a rich and delicious chocolate taste. I always recommend using quality ingredients when making desserts.
Variations from the recipe
Consider sprinkling some sea salt on top of the brownies. The salt will enhance the chocolate flavor in the brownie.
Want some crunch in the brownies? Consider adding some walnuts, pecans or chopped nuts of your choice. I would recommend ¼ cup to ⅓ cup almonds.
Once the brownies are done you can top them with some fresh fruit to add sweetness to the brownies. Try it with strawberries, blueberries, etc.
What is the difference between fudgy and chewy brownies?
Fudgy brownies are rich and dense with a moist, almost gooey texture. They have a high fat-to-flour ratio, which gives them their signature fuzzy texture. Chewy brownies, on the other hand, have a more cake-like texture with a bit of spring and chewy pieces. They have a low fat-to-flour ratio and rely heavily on eggs and sugar to give them structure.
How to store avocado brownies?
Store brownies at room temperature for up to 2-3 days or in the refrigerator for up to 5-7 days.
How to freeze vegan brownies?
If you want to keep them longer, you can freeze them for up to 2-3 months. To freeze avocado brownies, wrap them tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil or store in an airtight container. When you’re ready to eat them, thaw the brownies at room temperature for a few hours before serving.
