Avocado Brownies

Avocado Fun Facts: 
1. Avocados are a fruit! They are actually considered a berry because they have fleshy pulp and a seed. 
2. Not going to use your avocado right away? Pop it in the fridge to slow down the ripening process.
3. Avocados can replace the fat in your baking mixes using a 1:1 ratio. Check out this Protein-packed Avocado Brownie recipe below!
