Avocado brownies

I am loving the guilt free treats at the moment. There’s nothing worse then seeing something delicious and thinking “should I take that second piece….?” When there is a vegan or a less unhealthy version of a dish I always try to choose that version lately. Unless it really changes the flavor, why not? And yeah, sometimes butter does make everything better. BUT, definitely not in this brownie recipe!

Normally thinking about brownies, I just think about the amount of sugar and butter that goes into it. I tried making them before without the butter, but there were still eggs inside. This time I took all of the “bad” ingredients out, without taking away any flavor.
