The World's Healthest Brownies

These gluten-free, low-carb, vegan brownies are made of healthy fats (avocado, nuts, coconut, and flax seed) and vegetables (avocado and zucchini). I don’t think I can make it healthier than this. They are very light and low in sugar. Instead of using “flax eggs,” you can also use Egg Replacer.

  2. Hi Thalia,

    Thank you for the comment! I hope you will enjoy it!

  3. What a great recipe!! I’m so impressed with all the healthy ingredients and how little sugar is in there. Nice 🙂

  4. Thank you for the comment, Meme. I tend to minimize the amount of sugar and only use 1/2 cup of sugar for 2 cups of flour, but some people who are used to very sweet desserts and drinks find it not sweet enough, so please adjust the amount to your liking if you decide to make these brownies.

    Does the worlds healthiest brownie freeze well?

  6. Katrina,
    Thank you for the question. To be honest, I haven’t tried freezing them myself, but I assume they should freeze well just as regular brownies.

    Can this recipe be made with real eggs? If so, how many and how would it impact the texture?

  8. Kris,
    Thank you for visiting the site and for your question. Yes, of course you can use real eggs. Please use two eggs. I used flax eggs to make this recipe vegan, but using real eggs would probably produce the same or even better result.
