Our friend, Rainn Wilson, is vegan so we made a delicious and easy dessert for him.
Vegan Avocado Brownies
• 1/2 ripe avocado
• 1 cup soymilk (unsweetened)
• 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
• 1/2 cup coconut sugar
• 1 cup sprouted whole grain spelt flour
• 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8 x 8′′ baking dish.
In a blender, combine the avocado, soymilk, maple syrup and coconut sugar. Blend for about 15-20 seconds, until smooth.
In a large bowl, combine the spelt flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt then stir together. Pour the wet ingredients in the blender into the bowl with the dry. Add the chocolate chips and stir together until combined. Sprinkle a handful of chocolate chips on top then bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until set. Cool before serving.
