Avocado Brownies

Avocados are the best thing in the whole world. They taste so good and they're so versatile - you can add them to just about anything!

Although, I should mention that I recently had a severe episode of food poisoning when I made pasta with avocado sauce. The husband suspects it was the avocados. I think it was the cheese. Cheese which I had bought way back in January of this year. It could never be the avocados, right? I mean, how can something so good be so bad? It's not like fish. {FYI - I also recently found out that I'm allergic to all kinds of fish, not only shellfish like I earlier thought. Sad.}

Let's make some healthy-for-you brownies, shall we?

Side note: They don't taste of avocados at all.
