It’s no secret that Avocados are currently at their peak of popularity, commonly labeled as a “healthy fat.” It’s also no secret that oils and butter are the most saturated substances on the food spectrum. So have you ever considered replacing oil and butter with avocado altogether? If you’re a die-hard fan of avocado toast and other millennial health-fat concoctions, just wait till you hear what we’ve got in store for you- a way to indulge in a delicious dessert and get your daily avocado in at the same time.

Not only will this recipe save you calories in saturated fats, but you’ll be genuinely shocked at how delicious a dark chocolate brownie will taste when it’s made with avocado.
