Healthier Brownies With Dark Chocolate & Avocado

2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups mashed avocado
1 cup sugar
2 eggs (lightly beaten)

1/2 cup dark chocolate (chopped)
3 tbsp coconut oil (melted plus more to grease the pan)
1/2 cup walnuts (roughly chopped)

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a medium-sized bowl add the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and cinnamon. Whisk until combined and set aside.

In a separate bowl, add the mashed avocados, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, and melted dark chocolate. Mix until fluffy with a handheld or countertop mixer.

Once fluffy, incorporate half of the dry ingredients into the bowl and well. Repeat with remaining half of dry ingredients.

Transfer the batter into a greased 9x9 pan and evenly spread. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
