Avocado Brownies

It’s Throwback Thursday!! I’m sharing this recipe from one of my previous abandoned blogs. This was when I was on a low-calorie diet and to address my unavoidable sweet tooth Nandita shared this recipe with me. Be sure to check out her beauty blog (http://mystyleexpression.com) and follow her on twitter @mystyleexp.

In this recipe we replace the butter with Avocado, a quick Google search tells me that   8oz. Butter = ~1600 calories vs 8oz. Avacado = ~350 calories.
