Chocolate & avocado brownies

Avocado is rich in 'good' fats. When combined with antioxidant-rich dark chocolate, the result is a delicious sweet treat with an anti-inflammatory hit.

Method

Preheat oven to 180°C.

Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of boiling water. Allow to cool.

Put the avocado into a mixer and fold in the eggs, vanilla and water. Blend until creamy.

Add in the sugar, cocoa powder, honey and a pinch of sea salt. Mix all the ingredients, then fold in bicarbonate of soda and stir until just combined.

Transfer the mixture into a prepared tray, levelling out the top and spreading the mix to the edges.

Sprinkle with more sea salt and bake in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Leave to cool slightly before chopping in to eight pieces and serve.
