Paleo Double Chocolate Avocado Brownies. Yes you read that right. These Paleo Double Chocolate Avocado Brownies are made without any flours at all yet still taste amazing. These Paleo Double Chocolate Avocado Brownies are also really simple to make because they are made in your food processor or blender. Simple and delicious? Yes it's possible. These Paleo Double Chocolate Avocado Brownies are so good they will have you coming back for seconds and maybe even thirds.
Today we are snacking on Paleo Double Chocolate Avocado Brownies. I am officially obsessed with this recipe. Erik and I have been inhaling these. I've made two batches in the last 2 weeks. Yes obsessed! These Paleo Double Chocolate Avocado Brownies aren't super sweet, but are nice and dense and cocoa-y. Yes I am making up words to describe things now. Don't judge me.
Okay, how is it December already? I mean seriously? Where did November go? Christmas is going to be here in no time. Have you started your shopping yet? I am actually almost done mine I think. I still need to get something for my Dad and a couple more items for Erik but otherwise I think I am done. Which never happens! It was all those Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. I am just a sucker for deals. Especially when I can take advantage of them from the comfort of my own home. In my pyjamas, sipping coffee and snacking on treats like Paleo Double Chocolate Avocado Brownies. I will actually never understand why people go and brave the malls on those days. Honestly those crowds do not look appealing at all. Like at all. I personally don't think that any deal is worth all that stress and grief. None.
Besides gift giving for my friends and family I am also making a conscious effort to give back this season. This year I have chosen to donate to The Love For Lewiston Foundation.
Every once in a while you come across a story that touches your heart in such a way that you can't help but want to help. This year for me that story has been the story of an incredible woman named Jessica Janzen and her family. Jessica used to teach spin at the studio I attend, and last year she had a beautiful baby boy named Lewiston. Tragically, when Lewiston was just 3 months old he was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called SMA and given less than a year to live.
Jessica's energy throughout his entire illness was incredible. Even up to his last few days they would regularly hold dance parties in his hospital room, and their favourite song to dance to was Justin Timberlake's "Can't Stop The Feeling." Jessica has shared every step of her story along the way on her Instagram page and her incredible attitude and outlook inspires me everyday. Tragically, Lewiston passed away when he was only 6 months old. As you can imagine, Jessica and her family were devastated. But, sometimes our biggest tragedies become our biggest success stories, and shortly after Lewiston's death, Jessica and her family created The Love For Lewiston Foundation and their goal is to help find a cure for SMA. They set a goal of raising $100,000 by the end of the year and they are now only $12,000 away.
I have been so touched and inspired by their story and want to help any way that I can. So for the next 2 weeks (until December 14, 2017) I will be donating all of my Beautycounter earnings to The Love For Lewiston Foundation.

But let's get back to business shall we? The business of these amazing Paleo Double Chocolate Avocado Brownies. Now I should warn you that these are pretty dense. They are not like a wheat filled brownie if that is what you are used to. Why? Well because these are made without any flours and are loaded with healthy fats from avocados and eggs. But they still taste amazing if you ask me (and Erik agrees).
These Paleo Double Chocolate Avocado Brownies make a great treat, snack and perhaps even breakfast in a pinch? Chocolate for breakfast? Don't judge me, but on occasional I don't think there is anything wrong with that. Remember, the paleo diet is all about balance and focusing on nourishing ingredients, and these Paleo Double Chocolate Avocado Brownies have plenty of those. In fact I love this recipe so much that I am only making it available to my newsletter subscribers. Simply leave your email address below and you will be sent a copy of the Paleo Double Chocolate Avocado Brownies Recipe.
