Sneaking as many health foods into this veggie based fudge brownie recipe.  On top of being gluten-free, the icing is primarily mashed avocados and the majority of the brownie is sweet potatoes and black beans.  If you or your kids like chocolate, you will love this dessert.

2. Preheat the oven to 350’F.

3. Place all of the ingredients ( except half of the cocoa nibs ) in a food processor and blend until smooth.

4. Stir in the other half of the cocoa nibs until evenly mixed into the batter.

5. Line a baking dish ( ideally 12” x 8” x 2” ) with parchment paper. ( NOTE – Using a deeper shape might make your brownies too soft in the middle )

6. Our the batter into the baking dish and spread out evenly

7. Bake for 50 minutes or until a knife comes out almost clean.
