"These brownies are fudgy and don't have to bake long because the first step is to cook the chocolate peanut-butter mixture on the stove like candy. Avocado is substituted for butter to make a smooth rich baked good without the butterfat."

Directions

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  2. Melt peanut butter, chocolate chips, and sugar together in a saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, until chocolate is melted, about 5 minutes. Increase heat to medium and continue stirring until mixture begins to bubble, about 5 more minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Blend avocado, soy milk, and canola oil in a food processor until smooth. Stir avocado mixture into chocolate mixture until thoroughly combined.
  4. Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl until well mixed. Add avocado-chocolate mixture to the flour mixture; stir until just combined. Pour batter evenly into the prepared baking pan.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges begin to become crisp, about 20 minutes. Cool brownies completely before cutting and serving.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Not all chocolate chips are vegan but you don't have to buy special vegan chips. Just check the ingredients. For example, the Ghirardelli 60% dark chocolate chips are not vegan but the Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips are. Cocoa butter is OK. Milk fat is not.

I'm not vegan, but wondering why white sugar is included in this recipe? I'm pretty sure that is not an acceptable form of sweetener for vegans, due to the charcoal used in the manufacturing. I...
