Lunch Ideas for Kids: Guilt Free Chocoholic Brownies

Lunch Ideas for Kids: Guilt Free Chocoholic Brownies 

These brownies not only deliver a truly delicious dark chocolate punch, they are also sugar, guilt and virtually FAT free! I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about baking brownies with avocado, but it really works well. Avocados have a smooth texture with a very bland neutral flavor that lend themselves ideally to dark chocolate. You cannot taste avocado, all you taste is dark chocolate. Also, as there is no sugar, gluten or dairy so as a result, they are lighter than air, making it very easy to eat A LOT without guilt.
