My stock of avocado studs being empty, I had to sculpt some avocado earrings. Since I’m trying to grow my youtube channel this year, every occasion to film some sculpting process is ceased, so thought it would be a perfect project to record.
However only avocados felt too little, so I looked up for vegan recipes with avocado.
Now, you have to know that I’ve been looking for vegan baking for quite some time and been wanting to use avocado as a fat replacement. Hence why, when I stumbled upon GimmeSomeOven brownie recipe, I knew I had to try those.

I ended up tweaking the recipe, so here is my own version, sweeter than the original and with some added peanut butter for some extra yumminess.

Miniature Avocado Brownies, Stéphanie Kilgast

Vegan Avocado Brownies

Inspired by GimeSomeOven’s recipe.
– 1 mashed avocado
– 4 tbsp vegetal oil (I used canola)
– 2 tbsp peanut butter
– 130 g flour
– 65 g cocoa powder
– 150 g raw cane sugar
– 1 tsp baking soda
– 1/2 tsp salt
– 180 mL water (to which I added 1 tsp soluble coffee)
– 200 g dark chocolate chips

Pre-heat oven at 180°C.
Start by mixing the fats together, mash the avocado, add the oil, then the peanut butter and mix until smooth.
Add the dry ingredients little by little, mixing along.
Add the coffee water at the end, mix thoroughly.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Bake for 15-20 minutes.
I’d suggest slightly undercooking is better than overcooking, but that’s because I like fudgy brownies 🙂

And here is the video and the recipe for the polymer clay miniature version : as usual I used fimo polymer clay and several bakings.

I hope you liked both ^^

        Je galère un peu à trouver des bonnes recettes végétales de gâteaux, mais ces brownies là sont aussi bons que ceux que je faisais avant avec beurre et oeufs.
        Je pense que l’avocat peut bien passer dans un gâteau, mais pas remplacer complètement la graisse. Ici, il y a quand même de l’huile et de la pâte d’arachide en plus en terme de graisse.
        Enfin bref, vraiment je suis contente de cette recette 😀 c’est pour ça que je la partage d’ailleurs ^^

          oui tout à fait
          la courgette apporte aussi beaucoup de souplesse
          par exemple

          mais l’avocat z’ont pas aimé au gout (pourtant j’avais pas dit avant!!)

            C’est marrant, je trouve que ça n’a pas du tout le goût de l’avocat, mais bien du chocolat. Le chocolat étant très fort, ça prend le dessus. (d’ailleurs, j’arrête pas d’en manger de mes brownies haha, il me faut un plus petit plat, que je ne fasse que la moitié)
            Tu avais fait un gâteau au chocolat également?

            je sais plus
            sans doute pas (ils aiment pas les gâteaux au chocolat si si c’est possible)

      you should make these! I mean they have avocado in them, so they’re technically veggies, hence healthy, right? 😀
