Avocado Brownie Bites

I don't know of you've heard, but avocado is my new best friend.

They make everything (OK, maybe not everything) fudgier, creamier, and just all around better.

Yes, this even includes desserts.  So far I've only made frosting with avocado, but it turned out so amazing that I just had to try more.  And these Avocado Brownie Bites?  Absolutely amazing.

Let's talk about the fudge factor.

Ummm, it's awesome.  In my opinion, fudgy brownies top cakey brownies x1000.  So these extra fudgy brownies are sort of incredible.  The pictures do them no justice.

Looks like you'll just have to make them for yourself, won't you?

Avocado Brownie Bites

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 6 dates, pitted
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup special dark cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F.  Combine all ingredients except chocolate chips in the bowl of a food processor.  Blend until everything is incorporated and a smooth batter has formed.  This may take a bit of time, and you will have to scrape down the sides of the processor as necessary.  Once a batter has formed, add chocolate chips and process quickly to combine.  Grease a mini muffin tin (or another pan of choice) and scoop a bit of dough into each cup.  Bake 15 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.  Baking time may vary depending on what pan you use.  Let cool and remove from pan.  Store in an airtight container.


(Sorry for the slightly more spread out posts lately.  School got super busy these last few weeks!  Hopefully everything will be normal again in a week or two)

  1. Oh gosh, these look DELICIOUS!! :D And no wheat means I can eat them, yay yay. I agree that fudgy brownies are much more delicious than their cake-y counterparts.

    1. Yay! I'm so glad the recipe looks good!

  2. Wow! Avocado + Dates + Cocoa = Winning Combo!

  3. Hi there,
    I'm so glad I stumbled upon your blog. I've made a few things, and love them all!
    I made these brownies tonight, but when I tasted the batter, it seemed a little bitter-so I went ahead and added 1/4 sugar. Are the pitted dates what is supposed to add sweetness? They were really delicious, but I'm wondering if they are just as good without the sugar. I have 2 little kids and I'm not sure they would pass their taste test without the extra sweetness...thanks!

    1. The dates and chocolate chips are what's meant to add sweetness. I'm sorry that it didn't seem sweet enough for you. Everyones taste buds are a bit different, so maybe you and your kids just have a bit more of a sweet tooth than I do. The way you figure these things out is by experimenting!

  4. I made these tonight, and I want to say thank you for the awesome recipe! I love them and will absolutely make them again soon :) I didn't have dates so I added a bit of honey and dark brown sugar, and that was perfect for me.

    1. That's awesome! I'm so glad you liked them.
