Healthier Brownies for Your Sweetheart

Are you on the hunt for the perfect dessert to make for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day? I don’t know about you, but I love chocolate in the form of brownies! Unfortunately, many of the brownie recipes out there are full of refined flour and loads of sugar. When I have time, I enjoy playing around in the kitchen turning unhealthy recipes into healthy ones. This avocado brownie recipe is full of healthy fats like avocado and coconut oil, high in antioxidants because of the cacao powder, and its gluten free! For Valentine’s Day, I will probably serve these beauties with a scoop of coconut ice cream on top. Pure decadence without all of the guilt!
