Whole Wheat Avocado Brownies

oil free, dairy free

The new and improved avocado brownie recipe is finally here!! And this time, they’re whole wheat! The original recipe wasn’t quite how I wanted it to be so I went back and experimented, many, many times, to get it where it is now. I’m so excited to post this one!

Whole wheat flour is much cheaper than other alternative flours which is one of the reasons I chose it. On amazon, almond flour can cost around $25 dollars for three pounds while whole flour usually costs only $4 for five pounds. 

Based on my research, whole wheat flour has more vitamins and nutrients, such as riboflavin, niacin, and folate, than standard white flour. Whole wheat flour also has a lower glycemic index and a higher amount of fiber and protein per serving. 

The only other main ingredients in this recipe are avocado, eggs, and coconut sugar. Simple ingredients and simple recipe for the win!

Whether you consider yourself a “baker” or not, give these brownies a chance! It’s such an easy recipe to follow. Share them with friends and family, spread the recipe to others, and enjoy these yummy whole wheat avocado brownies :)

P.S. the key to decent food photography is the insistence of a 4 year old that the legos make a debut. It really adds that pop of color 

Tiff Tips

  1. Make sure the avocado is smooth before adding other ingredients so there are no avocado chunks in the brownies

  2. I melted the chocolate chips in the microwave. I do 20 seconds at a time and stir after each interval
