Day 21 BM #51 -
My kids have started to appreciate brownies of late and so I got to bake a few variations. Here I used avocado. We weren't able to taste the avocado but there were some green (avocado) specks visible which gave away the 'secret'.
My ever-observant older one figured out that I had used an avocado but since the taste was good, she forgave the presence of avocado!

Whole Wheat Flour 1 cup
Baking Powder 1 tsp
Salt 1/4 tsp
Butter 2 Tbsp
Chocolate Chips 1 cup
Avocado, 1 peeled and de-seeded
Water 4 Tbsp
Sugar 1/2 cup
Milk 3 Tbsp
Vanilla essence 1 tsp (I didn't add)
Powered Sugar 1 Tbsp for dusting on top (Optional)
Method Of Preparation -
In a mixing bowl, sift the flour, baking powder and salt.
In a microwave safe bowl, add 2 tablespoons of butter and chocolate chips. Microwave it until the chocolate chips melt.
Chop the avocado and blend into a smooth puree adding about 3-4 Tbsp of water.
Blend the avocado puree, sugar, milk and the chocolate syrup.
To the chocolate-avocado mixture, gradually add the flour+baking powder until well blended.
Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Prepare a 8 inch square baking pan by lining parchment paper or greasing it.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Level it with a knife if needed.
Bake it for 22 minutes or until a tester comes out clean when inserted in the middle.
Slice it as needed upon cooling and enjoy!
