Healthy Avocado Brownies

This recipe was absolutely AMAZING. As other reviewers suggested, I nixed the oil completely. I also only used 1 cup of brown sugar and no salt (“healthy” brownies) and I used almond milk instead of soy. HEAVENLY.

I only recently started cooking vegan, so I know what normal brownies taste like. These are comparable if not better! And less guilty! They’re perfectly flavored, extremely moist but not too heavy, and delightfully fudgey. I could rave on! Mine are only 245 calories a brownie. I will definitely be making these again!!
