Avocado Mint Brownies Recipe

Frozen. Chocolately. Refreshing. Those are the adjectives we would ascribe to this frozen delicacy. Avocados, mint and chocolate might sound like an odd combination, but the recipes components go together like PB&J.

Avocado Mint Brownies

avocado mint brownies recipe

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 4 1/2 hours

Yield: 16 servings

Ingredients
Directions

Base layer:

  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 cup pitted Medjool dates
  • 1 heaping tablespoon raw cacao powder

Mint Layer:

  • 1 ripe avocado, pitted and peeled
  • 1 banana, peeled
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or paste
  • Salt
  • 1 tablespoon mint extract (you can use 1 teaspoon if you prefer less mint)

Top layer:

  • 3 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  1. Pulse all of your base layer ingredients in your food processor until they can be pinched and stick together.
  2. Take a 9 inch square baking pan and line it with parchment paper (slightly overhanging) that you can easily remove later .
  3. Pour your base layer ingredients into the pan and press it down covering the bottom of the pan into a level surface. Refrigerate while you make the mint layer.
  4. Blend all of the ingredients in the mint layer together until creamy. Adjust the mint extract according to your tastes (we liked it not as minty).
  5. Take your base layer out of the fridge and spread evenly with the mint layer. Place the pan back in the fridge.
  6. For the chocolatey top layer mix all of the ingredients until blended. Pour out and gently spread on top of the mint layer. This is a thin layer (you can double it if you prefer).
  7. Place the pan in the freezer to firm up for at least four hours.
  8. Enjoy!
