Hey guys! I’m really excited to share this delicious brownie with you! I’ve created this myself using healthier, more natural ingredients than a traditional brownie and they are the yummiest brownies I’ve ever eaten. Serve them to your friends and family warm from the oven with ice-cream or berries – or both! 🙂

FAQ: (there’s been lots of the same questions in the comment section of this video)

‘This isn’t -free because eggs are !’ – Eggs are actually not a product! products come from cows, sheep, goats. Eggs come from a chicken! 🙂

‘Coconut Oil contains saturated fat which is really bad for you!’ – Not all saturated fat is bad for you surprisingly. It’s fine if it naturally occurs like in coconut oil and it’s not man-made. Read more here:

‘If you’re going to have a treat, why not go all out and have a regular brownie?!’ – in my opinion, it’s about a lifestyle, so even when I have a treat, I want it to not be a load of white sugar and butter. I’d much rather have a treat made with ingredients that are natural and contain some kind of goodness. That’s just me, you guys can do whatever you like. 🙂

I would love to see how you guys get on my brownies! Send me pictures of your creations on twitter & instagram using the hashtag #TanyaBurrsBrownies – my twitter & instagram are @TanyaBurr


– 1/2 cup Coconut Oil
– 300g Dark (you can use 150g & 150g dark if you don’t like too much dark – I love it though as I think the dark makes it taste like rich pudding!)
– 2 cups Coconut Sugar (you can replace this with regular caster sugar
or brown sugar if you want to! I just use Coconut sugar as it’s better for you.)
– cap full of Vanilla Extract
– 1 cup Ground Almonds
– 1 mashed Avocado
– 1 tsp Baking Powder
– 3 Eggs

This recipe is and dairy free.

    what’s the measurements if I want to use raw coco powder instead the dark

  2. Imogen McFarlane on June 28, 2014: (Reply)

    Thanks Tanya! I’ve tried a few different brownie recipes with avocado and
    these are by far the best! You can’t even taste the avocado! And the
    coconut oil makes them extra delicious :)

    My mum is allergic to all nuts and is also celiac. I want to make her these
    for a treat but need some alternatives for the ground almonds and the
    things that could cause celiac problems. Does anyone have an ideas?

    I love this video along with your green smoothie 🙂 can you please do more

    Your right about what you wrote in the description box. These brownies
    probably taste just as nice as normal brownies. And whats better than to
    know than that you are having a healthy alternative to a sweet treat, and
    it tastes just as nice! That is really clever!

  8. Little Pixie Lu on July 1, 2014: (Reply)

    More videos like this please <3 you look gorgeous and those brownies look
    super tasty!!xx

  9. Zuzana Gruntová on July 2, 2014: (Reply)

    Is there anybody, who knows, how big the cups are – or how many grams they
    have? In my country we usually don´t work with them, so I´m struggling with
    the measures.

  10. Alexandrea J. on July 3, 2014: (Reply)

    When you yelled into the saucepan, I laughed so hard! I do the same thing!

    Hi Tanya I was crying before I watched this video but for some reason

    I definitely want to make these!! 

  13. Shelby Farmer on July 4, 2014: (Reply)

    I want to make these brownies for a small holiday party and I’m having
    trouble knowing what size and what kinda tin I should use that would work
    for the recipe? 

  14. Juliet Colledge on July 4, 2014: (Reply)

    i found this video really scary because you kept talking about regular
    brownies kill you!! XD love this vid xx

  15. Laura Menezes on July 6, 2014: (Reply)

    So avocado is in place of butter right ? So like over here in India we do
    not get it so easily so could I use butter instea?

  16. big balloon on July 6, 2014: (Reply)

    Looks delicious

    friends, neighbours and all my friends on Facebook! I’ve had several
    requests for your recipe! I’m happy to share the love

    If we are to use cacao powder how much would we use

  20. MsCharlotte456 on July 9, 2014: (Reply)

    Tanya i’m sorry but you are obviously not a dietitian or nutritionist and
    i’m studying to be one. You are not giving people correct information …
    You should not talk about health claims when you do not know enough about

  21. Janessa Ma on July 10, 2014: (Reply)

    Wow these are expensive to make but im still going to try it

  22. Janessa Ma on July 11, 2014: (Reply)

    Ok so i just made mine with cacao powder and it turned out a bit bitter so
    for future those who are going to use the cacao powder instead of chocolate
    bars add a little extra sugar

  23. Esmerellda Willson on July 13, 2014: (Reply)

    I was just wondering if anyone could help me with this? Do you know how
    many grams are in the cup measurement Tanya uses? Thank You

  24. Maëllacréation on July 14, 2014: (Reply)

    seemes really nice! but here in canada we cant find coconut oil :(

  25. Kirsty Miller on July 17, 2014: (Reply)

    cannot WAIT to give these suckers a go, looks amazing +Tanya Burr :)

  26. Charlotte Spada on July 18, 2014: (Reply)

    I understand that some of these ingredients are better for you than butter
    and other things that may go into normal brownies, but there is not much
    scientific evidence from peer reviewed and published journals to suggest
    that butter and sugar are bad for you in small quantities. In addition in
    think it is detrimental to explain these things to many viewers who trust
    your opinion without having the information from a true scientific journal.
    There are many cases in which people on the internet claim things are
    healthy and gather a following without any scientific evidence to back them
    up. If you were a dietician, nutritionist, or doctor I could trust your
    opinion, but without any background in human or cell physiology I don’t
    think you should make these claims. I have a degree in biology so I’m not
    just coming out of nowhere.

    So I watched this vid a couple months ago when u first posted it and I was
    like ok cool then today I was grocery shopping and trader joes and I
    suddenly see coconut sugar so I bought it and tried the recipe and it was
    soooo good! And to think I wouldn’t have tried it if trader joes had not
    put the coconut sugar on display…

    my name is Mimi and gluten also hurts my stomach , you should get a blood
    test or see your doctor because you might have ceoliac disease and that can
    come from your mum or dad so they may have it as well 🙂 + that brownie
    looks AMAZING !!!!!

  49. Hannah Jewell on August 19, 2014: (Reply)

    I’m going to make these brownies but instead of melting the chocolate in
    the saucepan I would fill a saucepan with water and put a mixing bowl on
    top so that it won’t burn. They look delicious:D

  63. Lovise M on September 9, 2014: (Reply)

    I accidentally forgot to put the baking powder in.. They are almost exactly
    the same as they were the other four-five times I’ve made them though 🙂
    And I didn’t put an avocado in either. I’ve made them with and without
    avocado, and it doesn’t make THAT big a difference. So if you don’t have
    avocados, you can still bake these delicious brownies!! 😀

    Tanya, thank you so much for creating these delicious brownies and sharing
    them with us!! They’re now the only cake that I ever crave 😛 Please make
    more healthy/healthier recipes 🙂 xoxo

    oh shit! I really want to make them but I can’t get neither coconut oil or

    sunflower oil and regular caster sugar and see how that goes, thank you so
    much for sharing this tan!!

    The only thing I don’t like about cooking videos are the judgemental self

    Coconut sugar has a high GI and still affects your insulin levels the same
    way white or brown sugar do. However coconut sugar is less processed and
    contains some mineral even though you would have to eat tons of it to
    really benefit from eating it.

    I just made the brownies. Although it tastes decent… its a long way from
    the best even though its healthy. Googling healthy brownies or brownies
    with avocado and getting from a cooking site would be better in my
    opionion. There is way too much sugar, 1 cup would have been fine (I used
    70% cacao even). 1 cup coconut oil is way too much too because there is an
    avocado that consists mainly of oils. Also she does not put what size glass
    dish she used. I used 8 X 8inches and it was too small. I would use 9×9 or
    a rectangular one. I hope this helps it someone wants to make them. These
    are just my opinions
