LET’S GET COOKING
Preheat your oven to 350° F. Line an 8×8 inch baking pan with baking paper.
Place the coconut oil and chopped chocolate in a medium size heatproof bowl. Place the bowl over a pot of lightly simmering water. Stir the cholate and coconut oil until they are completely melted.
In a large bowl, mash the avocados and then stir in the chocolate mixture. Whisk in the sugar, then add in the flax eggs and vanilla extract. Mix well.
Next add in the cocoa powder, almond meal, baking powder and salt, mixing until just combined. Don’t overmix! If desired, stir in the chopped walnuts.
Spread the batter into the prepared baking pan and place it in the middle of the oven. Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes until the middle is set.
Let the brownies cool completely on a rack and cut into squares. Enjoy!
