Can I substitute the almond flour for regular flour?
I’ve never tried to use any other flour in this recipe other than almond flour, so I cannot guarantee how they’ll turn out. The almond flour gives these brownies a subtle nutty flavour and what gives them such an incredible texture.
Are there any other substitutions I can make in this recipe?
Yes! For the almond milk, you can use any other plant milk of choice! If you do not have a banana, you can use applesauce instead. Lastly, you can feel free to drizzle almond butter, cashew butter, etc on top of your brownies instead of peanut butter. The choice is yours!
Baking tips to make the perfect avocado brownies
- Add all ingredients to a *food processor. This is the best and easiest way to make these brownies! Throwing everything into the processor will allow all ingredients to blend evenly, so there are no chunks.
- Blend the wet ingredients first then add in the dry. This will allow all the wet ingredients to mix together smoothly, and then you can incorporate the remaining dry ingredients.
- Make sure your peanut butter is at room temperature. This will make it easier to drizzle over your brownies once they are cooked! If you keep your nut butter in the fridge, make sure to take it out at least 30 minutes to one hour before you need to use it. Alternatively, you can place it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds to make it more runny.
How to store your vegan avocado brownies
These brownies can stay in the fridge for about 5-6 days. You can freeze them in an airtight container for approximately one month. If you want to make them and freeze them, you can drizzle the peanut butter on them when you are ready to thaw them out so that the peanut butter is fresh!
