Avocado Reindeer Brownies

These adorable Reindeer Brownies have a hidden secret: they’re made with avocado. The avocado brings healthy fats and keeps them moist and rich. The kids will love decorating them like Rudolph, and eating them too!

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1/2 cup vegan milk (soy, almond etc...)
  • 3/4 cup (140g) light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup (60g) plain flour
  • 7 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

To decorate

  • 1 tube writing icing or mix icing sugar with a little water
  • Candy eyes available in the baking aisle of most major grocery stores
  • Pretzels
  • Red candy M&Ms and Smarties work well


  • Preheat the oven to 350F / 175C. Grease an 8” / 20cm square baking tray or line it with baking paper.
  • Add the avocado flesh, milk, brown sugar and vanilla to a food processor and whiz until smooth, scraping down the sides if necessary.
  • Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, vanilla and salt and pulse until combined, but don’t over mix.
  • Spoon the batter into the pan and spread evenly to the edges. Bake for 15 minutes or until the edges are cooked and the centre is still a little squidgy.
  • Allow to cool completely in the tray.
  • Cut the cooled brownies into triangles, then decorate like reindeers with the candy eyes, pretzels and red sweets, using the writing icing to ‘glue’ them on.
