Avocado Brownies

I was gifted an amazing box of Melrose products to play with in the kitchen. Included was some beautiful avocado oil. Normally I would use this as a salad dressing but today decided to make brownies using avocado.

Now this might sound like a weird combo to some, but trust me it is delicious and balanced with amazing fats, protein and is lower in sugar.
