Add-ins (for pecan cherry brownies)

  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 20 cherries, pitted and halved


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a 9x9 baking tray with parchment paper so that the paper hangs over the edge.
  • Mash your ripe bananas with a fork or hand mixer. Mix together with brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla.
  • In a blender, mix together your avocado and oil. Pour the avocado and oil mixture into the banana mixture and mix until fully incorporated.
  • Add salt, cocoa powder, and flour into your wet ingredients. Mix until fully incorporated. Fold-in any add-ins.

  • Cool completely before cutting and serving.


If you don't have parchment paper, you can grease your pan instead.
