Shape Up Saturday Series: 21 Day Fix Approved Fudge Brownie Recipe

12:00 AM




A lot of people always say, I don’t know how you do this whole clean eating/diet thing.  I wouldn’t be able to eat healthy all the time especially because I have a sweet tooth.  Well, guess what y’all, I have a sweet tooth like you do not believe.  My mom says I get it from my dad, we could literally sit there and eat sweets all day long and be total content with ourselves.  Well that’s if we didn’t gain weight from it and it wasn’t so unhealthy for the both of us. 

Since starting the 21 day fix I’ve had to find different healthy alternatives to my food.  When I lived at home I ate predominantly healthy.  My mom and I loved things like tofu, avocado and we were even ok with eating sweets made out of avocados.  Believe it or not, avocados are perfect for substitutions of unhealthy ingredients, which brings me to this recipe.  Believe it or not this recipe is made with avocado.  You mash it up so you can’t even tell when eating the brownies, but that’s amazing isn’t it?

These brownies are not only 21df approved, but they are also Dad approved!  My dad LOVES these brownies and he has no idea that they are made out of avocados so shh don’t tell him hehe.  Anyway, this recipe I found on the Team Beach Body website.  They have so many awesome recipes for anyone who has a sweet tooth.  This is why when people say you’re on a diet I always laugh because yes I need to eat healthy, but who else can say that they eat brownies on their diet?

Ingredients:
  • 16 servings (1 brownie each)
  • 1 medium ripe avocado, mashed
  • ¼ cup extra virgin coconut oil, melted
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp. seal salt
  • ¼ gluten free flour
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips

Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line an 8x8 inch baking pan with aluminum foil.  Lightly coat with spray.  Set aside.
  3. Combine avocado, oil, egg, maple syrup, and extract in a medium bowl; mix well.  Set aside
  4. Combine cocoa powder, salt and flour in a medium bowl; mix well.
  5. Add cocoa powder mixture to avocado mixture; mix well.
  6. Add chocolate chips; mix until blended.
  7. Pour batter into prepared pan; spread to make even.
  8. Bake for 33-36 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  9. Cool for an hour before removing from pan.  Cut into 16 squares.

For my 21 Day Fixers this is 1 Yellow Container and 1 tsp.
