Super fudgey avo brownies with lemon buttercream (vegan)

Okay okay, I know I have just put up a brownie recipe but you really can’t have too many. I was asked by a friend of mine to help come up with a recipe to use up any left over avocados that may be a bit overripe. This recipe needs a really ripe avo, it wont come out as well with hard ones.

Fudgey Avo Brownies

These brownies are not a cake texture, they are a fudgey texture. Super moist and squishy. They will last about 2 weeks covered and refrigerated. I haven’t tried freezing them but I am sure they would freeze well.

What you’ll need:

2                              medium avocados, completely ripe and mashed

180 g                     cake wheat flour

80 g                        cocoa powder

80 g                        coconut sugar

1 tsp                      baking powder

½ tsp                     fine salt

1 tsp                      vanilla paste

100 g                     golden syrup (or maple syrup)

100 ml                  water

½ cup                    neutral oil

½ cup                    almond milk

For icing:

100 g                     vegan butter, softened

1                             Lemon, zested and juiced

200 g                     icing sugar, sifted

Avo brownies with zesty lemon buttercream

How to do it:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and spray a medium sized baking dish or square cake tin with non-stick spray.
  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl, add all the ingredients except almond milk.
  3. Using a hand-held electric whisk, mix the ingredients until smooth and fully combined. If the mixture is thick add a bit of almond milk at a time until smooth and pourable.
  4. Pour the mixture into your greased dish and bake in the pre-heated oven for 35-40 minutes. Or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  5. Meanwhile mix the icing. Add the softened butter and icing sugar to a bowl. Using an electric hand whisk, beat until smooth and combined, add the lemon zest and about a tsp of the lemon juice. Beat again until smooth.
  6. When the brownies have cooled completely, cut into any sized block you desire and ice with your lemon icing.
