Avocado Brownies Recipe

Is always those who can adapt best to the new environment survives or those who can be a brownie? Let’s make avocado brownies to find it out!

Avocado brownies are a truly American dessert. Given that avocados are from the American continent and brownies were born there too, avocado brownies are the perfect fusion between the South and the North. Well, sort of.

What are brownies?

Original brownies of course -as in North American cuisine in general- has nothing to do with healthy food that properly nourishes the body. Brownies are based on flour and sugar, and their sole purpose is quickly and easily treating the soul at times when hope is the only thing we have left.

Unfortunately, as a long-term soul treatment, brownie is only as effective as the sparse nuts content it sometimes has or not even that.

What are avocados?

On the other hand, avocado is one of humanities savior that came from times long forgotten through paths that not even the wise can grasp.

According to evolutionary science, avocados should have been gone long ago from the face of the Earth, yet they are still here like oasis in the desert holding the last beacon of hope for those who can reach them.

As strange as it sounds, avocado is a fruit or most precisely a berry. As fruit plants rely on their fruits to lure animals into dispersing their seeds by eating the fruits covered seeds, so does the avocado. Or rather so did because since the disappearance of the megaflora a couple of millions years ago, there aren’t really many animals that are happily gulp down such huge seeds in one go.

If the lack of proper offspring distribution wouldn’t be enough challenge to overcome, avocados are pretty picky about soil, don’t like wind and require so much water as if the whole world would be a rain-forest.

How did avocados survive?

Yet, avocados are still here and since someone in a marketing agency found out that it’s a super-food, it’s widely cultivated for human consumption and shipped across the globe for anyone who can afford it.

Sure, the shift of the dietary landscape helped a lot as a couple of years ago when fat was on its Canossa and sugar was only responsible to destroy our teeth, no one could be signed up for eating fat and be proud of it.

Nowadays though, when eating fat and dunking oil doesn’t seem like a social suicide, we can indulge ourselves in treats that was once reserved for the health unconscious and special holidays. God bless the healthy fats and unsaturated oils that do not only help us live a long and healthy life but allow us to do it happily too.

How did avocados come into brownies?

Especially at times when we are made up our minds to go keto for whatever reason and find ourselves alone, outcast in the darkness of carbs free world. It’s hard to let fragments of our old life fade into oblivion, especially when those are crumbs of brownies that fall off our last bites of happiness.

Sometimes it doesn’t matter how hard we try to forget our past life and build up our new world, things that were cornerstones of our past will linger in our mind binding us from going further. We should cut those ropes and strive for freedom, but sometimes we have to make a deal with the devil to give us something to cut ourselves free.

That something is Avocado brownie which is actually not much to do with actual brownies or at least not much with the crumbly cakey ones, except, of course that they look like it and sweet like it if we find a satisfactory low carb sweetener.

The best thing is that avocado brownies are actually healthy (given that we use a healthy sweetener) besides being tasty and fun so we can indulge in them even if the time is not right for desserts.Avocado brownies recipe - SunCakeMom
