  • 100 grams dark chocolate bar I use Lindt’s 85% dark
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • 1 avocado
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup coconut sugar or white sugar
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour or 1 cup almond meal for gluten freel
  • ¼ cup Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa I like Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa
  • Pinch of salt
  • Optional: ½ cup peanut butter melted in microwave


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a 9 x 9 pan with parchment paper.
  • In a glass bowl in the microwave, melt together the coconut oil and chocolate chips or broken up chocolate bar), until liquid, 30 seconds first and then 15 seconds at a time and stirring in between.
  • In a large bowl, mash the avocado. Add the eggs, vanilla, pinch of salt and the sugar.
  • Add the flour and sift in the dark cocoa powder. Whisk.
  • Drizzle in the melted and cooled coconut oil and chocolate, whisking.
  • Pour into lined 9 x 9 pan.
  • Optional: If you are using the melted peanut butter, drizzle it on top of the batter now, in a continuous line and then use a pointed knife or toothpick to swirl through it, making a nice design.
  • Bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until done (toothpick comes out with minimal moist crumb, but not wet batter).
  • Let cool completely, then refrigerate until serving. I cut into 16 squares.
