Avocado Brownie Fudge


by Nicky Skinner December 28, 2017 1 Comment

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

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 cup avocado, mashed
  • 1/2 cup orange kumara, cooked and mashed into a puree
  • 1/2 cup nut butter (I used cashew, but you can use almond or peanut butter if you want)
  • 1/4 cup chopped dark chocolate (optional, but gives the fudge more depth)
  • 3 Tbsp rice malt syrup (or maple syrup)
  • 1/4 cup coconut or almond milk
  • 3 Tbsp of raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence

 

DIRECTIONS:

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.

Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Featuring my favourite oats and banana, I had a hankering for something chewy and substantial with my morning cuppa the other day, so I whipped up these Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.

I adapted a lactation cookie recipe I made on repeat a few months ago when Hope was born. Pulled out the brewers’ yeast and flax meal and added some ground chia and almond butter for healthy fats.

I whipped up these protein-packed bites using NuZest Chocolate Clean Lean protein powder, but you can use any kind of protein powder you like.

As you can see, my chocolate coating skills leave a lot to be desired, and I've since had recommended to insert a toothpick and roll the bite in the chocolate to get an even coverage all around. Try that and let me know how you go.

Is there anything better than cookies and cream? Maybe chocolate cookies and cream!

I was feeling creative and this slice just kind of came into being, but I'm not sorry because it really works!  This raw decadent slice is smooth and creamy with a delightful crunch from the cacao nibs.
