Avocrownie: Healthy Brownie in a Mug

I can’t think of a better way to start off my blog than with a food post, especially since this skinny microwavable recipe includes my favourite thing ever; avocados.

avocrownie
Ingredients
– 1 tablespoon honey (or any other sugar substitute)
– 1 tablespoon wholemeal flour
– 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
– pinch of baking soda
– pinch of salt
– 1/4 of an avocado
– 1 tablespoon of water
– a few drops of vanilla extract
toppings: blueberries, walnuts, chocolate chips, ice cream, pretty much anything your heart desires

It might seem a little weird at first but I’m sure I’m not the first person to use this wonderfully versatile fruit in a dessert recipe and I promise that it’ll turn out delicious – the buttery texture and subtle taste is a perfect substitute for the oil or butter that you would usually use. Plus extra brownie points since it’s so much healthier than those store bought cavity inducers.

Instructions

  1. Add dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder,baking soda, salt) into a mug and stir
  2. Mash avocado in a separate bowl
  3. Add water, mashed avocado, honey and vanilla extract
  4. Stir well until combined
  5. Heat in microwave at 1000 watts for 1 min 30 sec. If you want a fudgier consistency, 1 minute will do
  6. Add on whatever toppings you want. Since I was eating this for breakfast (perfect start to my intense study session), I added on blueberries and walnuts.
