Guilt Free Turtle Brownies

There’s a secret ingredient in these brownies that I bet you never going to guess. No, not that! I replaced the butter with a big hass avocado. It reduces the fat and calories, and adds healthy fat. And they don’t taste odd or like guacamole. They are rich, dense, chewy and wonderful. You can find my recipe for guilt free turtle brownies at Babble’s Family Kitchen.

  3. What a great idea! Avocadoes are sodium and cholesterol free, have 20 different vitamins and nutrients, and are very low in fat. What a great way to sneak some extra vitamins into your kids.
