What's better than a fudgy brownie with an added vegetable? TWO added vegetables! Well a fruit and a vegetable to be exact, but it's gotta be good for you!
This brownie is very fudge-like, hence the name, and not overly sweet (unless you add more sweetener), but it's delicious and completely guilt free.
With healthy fats and potassium from the avocado, vitamin A and vitamin C from the kumara and an abundance of antioxidants and iron from the cacao, this is truly a nutrient-dense addition to any baking repertoire.
Makes: 12 slices
Time: 10 mins (if you've pre-cooked your kumara)
Bake: 30 mins
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees and line a loaf pan with baking paper.
2. In a blender, food processor or stick mixer, combine all ingredients except chopped chocolate.
3. Add the chocolate chips and use a spatula to spread brownie fudge into the loaf pan.
4. Bake for 30 minutes. Let cool completely before slicing.
Brownie fudge will be very moist and fudge-like (not a light fluffy brownie). Will keep for up to one week in the fridge.

Here’s one for the grown-ups! For all those who need a little pick-me-up during the day, this one is for you!
I adore anything that incorporates my two favorite things; chocolate and coffee. This bar take it even further and adds in some peanuts for a nutty flavor too!
I don't know about you, but lolly cake was always the slice I gravitated towards as a kid and teen, but when I became more health conscious and realised that malt biscuits, condensed milk and Eskimo lollies were less than nourishing, I tried to make better choices. But the other day I decided nobody should have to miss out and decided to healthify it.
Like the majority of my recipes, they are many easy substitutions such as a different nut butter, nut or dried fruit. It's adaptable to your own tastes and I've tried it with chopped dates, dried blueberries and walnuts and it was fabulous!
