Avocado Brownies 

I made Avocado Brownies for the Avocado Frosting to go on top of. It was a fun way to use up avocados. While making them, I was thinking that this is an expensive way to make brownies. Then I realized that the brownies only used a little over 1 large avocado that I bought for $1. My recipe calls for 1 cup of butter or 1/2 lb butter. Well, 1lb of butter around here on sale is about $2, or it takes about $1 worth of butter, so actually similar cost. I was surprised!

To make the brownies, I just used my favorite recipe, and just substituted the Avocado for the butter. Worked FANTASTIC. The brownies were a bit more cake-like than I normally like, but they tasted just fine. The avocado blended in beautifully, you don’t taste it at all. While I prefer the fudgy brownie that I get from the butter, if you are looking to save a few calories – and who isn’t? – These are a GREAT and DELICIOUS substitute! The calories for one of these brownies is 106 vs. 164 for the regular recipe with butter. Over 50 calories is nothing to shrug at! That means you can eat 3 of these brownies for the same calories as 2 of the regular! MORE brownies! WIN! The Avocado Frosting is a similar story. 64 calories vs. 92 calories for the regular buttercream.

Now I know that Avocado is an EXCELLENT Butter substitute to save some calories, get the same great taste, and it costs about the same amount of money. I am positively giddy over this find!
