Dark Fudgey Paleo Brownies



  • 1 large, ripe avocado
  • 1/4 c sunflower seed butter
  • 1/2 c honey (raw)
  • 4 oz unsweetened, 100% dark chocolate (I used Ghirardelli)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 c unsweetened dutch process cocoa powder
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour (sifted)
  • 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp fine sea salt, sprinkling of mini chocolate chips (optional, but Enjoy Life brand are dairy, soy, and gluten free)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Cut avocado in half, peel and add to food processor
  3. Process until VERY smooth
  4. Melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil together in the microwave or over a double boiler (stir frequently to ensure the chocolate doesn’t scorch)
  5. Transfer avocado to large bowl and add all remaining ingredients except chocolate chips
  6. Use hand mixer and whip until very well combined and fluffy, 3-5 minutes should be enough
  7. Spread batter into greased or foil-lined 8×11 pan (8×8 or 9×9 would work as well but you’ll have to increase baking time)
  8. Sprinkle the top with mini chocolate chips, as many as you see fit
  9. Bake for 26-28 minutes, remove when toothpick comes out clean
  10. Let cool before cutting
  11. These taste best chilled from the fridge and taste even better 2-3 days later!
