    I really liked these! They're fluffy! I made them in my standing mixer and they came out wonderful. Thank you :3

    The brownies turned out well. Definitely more fudge-like than cake-like. They also don’t get the crispy, craggy top that other recipes have that involve butter, but if you don’t care about that, they are super rich tasting. The recipe is also forgiving. I used honey in place of maple syrup and oat flour in place of wheat flour. I got the same texture and taste as the first time I made this. It’s also almost impossible to dry out since the avocados add so much moisture.

    Delicious! I doubled the recipe since I had four very ripe avocados. I didn’t have enough maple syrup so used some mashed banana to make up for it.

    Perfect after a few modifications and reading the reviews. I made sure they we're cooked enough by testing doneness w a toothpick. I added 1/2 teas of espresso powder to enhance the chocolate flavor. I omitted the maple syrup and substituted for 1/4 cup coconut sugar (3/4 Cup sugar altogether: 1/2c raw sugar, 1/4c coconut). Added one more tablespoon of flour mixture because my avocados were ripe-softer. Flour mixture: (oat, rye, pastry). Baked for 25 min, 350 preheated.

    I felt like it almost wasn’t chocolatey enough so maybe I’ll add more cocoa powder or chocolate chips next time! I only used 1.5 avocados and also added a little bit of almond milk. Adding walnuts too was a great idea.

    Made it thrice already! At Brazil, where I’m from, we have different type of avocado, it’s watery and milder... the avocado the recipe calls for is very expensive, but when I buy them, I don’t hesitate tô make these brownies! They are SO tasteful and rich in flavor! I recommend everyone tô bake them!

    I did adjust it a bit I used frozen avocados, Splenda, sugar free maple syrup, and imitation vanilla. Everything else was the same. It turned out great!

    Very fudgy and moist. Delicious but consistency was not really something I would serve to company. If you don’t know the avocado is in there you can’t taste it If you do know, you sense a little “fruity” taste. But very slight. I had no problem getting the recipe.

    It worked fine for me thru the Yummly App. It redirected me to the correct website for the Instructions. Copy and pasted from my iPhone to Mac with no problem using Handoff! :-) I'm gonna try to make these today!

    Turned out great! Nice and moist and very tasty. I actually used dark cocoa because I had everything else on hand and didn’t want to run out. To get the unsweetened cocoa. Still it was very yummy.
