Fudgy Mocha Chocolate Chip Avocado Brownies

So did I ever tell you about that one time I ate a whole batch of brownies by myself … in one sitting?

Well if you’ve read my About page then you probably know the story.. but if you haven’t let me tell you!

Twas the day before I got married. The bridesmaids and I were busy making last minute projects before the big day – making table signs and finishing the wedding programs. Suddenly I had the urge for a chocolate treat … my treat of choice was and will always be brownies. I made a quick batch and dove in.

Apparently I was really nervous because 10 minutes later I realized I had finished the WHOLE batch (8×8 pan) of brownies by myself

Luckily my dress still fit the next day! hehe The End.

But clearly you can see and understand after that story, my passion and lack of self control for brownies!

Which is why I needed to make a healthier version – a guilt free version if you will!

Enter these Mocha Chocolate Chip Avocado Brownies!

These babies are made with fresh avocado, coffee, loads of chocolate chips, and dark dutch processed cocoa powder. (that stuff is the best! Please make sure its dutch processed, way better than regular Hersey’s cocoa powder – no offensive)

When you are mixing it the texture is definitely a little more sticky than regular box brownie mix, meaning its not as smooth pouring out of the bowl into the baking dish. You will need to use your spatula to scrap it out of the bowl and evenly spread the batter. But believe me.. its so worth it!

You’ll never know that these brownies are made with avocado when you taste them! They are still as rich and fudgy as regular brownies.

In fact, I dropped a bunch of these off at my husbands office and they were gone in minutes. It was only later that I told them that they were Avocado Brownies! hehe (so sneaky)

The coffee brings out the chocolate taste even more…  and the chocolate chips … well… lets just say I like chocolate and couldn’t resist adding a little more!

If you haven’t tried Avocado Brownies yet do it, you will be shocked at how good they are! These would totally be a great dessert to bring to your next summer party … or just something to snack on at night if you’re like me. Bon Appetite!

    This is just how I like my brownies – rich, fudgy and dense. I love that they are healthy too and this recipe is one I will be trying!

    1. Krista @ Joyful Healthy Eats

      Fudgy brownies are the best! The avocado in this totally takes you by surprise, its so delicious! Hope you like it!

  2. Jelli

    I absolutely must try these soon, Krista! I’ve made my own avocado brownies from a mix a few times before, but never from scratch. Don’t think coconut sugar is available here but I can do a quick sub, no problem. Can’t wait to try them. (And I don’t blame you for the pre-wedding brownie-a-thon.) I’d have totally done the same thing 🙂

    1. Krista @ Joyful Healthy Eats

      You’ll love them from scratch! Plus then you know exactly whats in them! 🙂 Yeah, you could easily sub with regular sugar, honey, or agave no problem!


    It/s funny the things we do when we are nervous! I have never had avocado brownies before! looks great!

    I may have had one (or two) of those no self control nights. For me it’s usually a dip or an appetizer that lure me into eating the whole thing! I would savor these brownies and eat them slowly so I could enjoy each fudgy bite.

    That story is hilarious! I have definitely had those “I need chocolate pronto!” moments myself, and since they happen more often than I care to admit, lol, this guilt-free version is perfect!
