Made It! #26

~ I love Pinterest and would like to make a recipe of my boards every week. Since I have lots of recipes pinned (that, until now, I just pinned and only that), I hope this will be a way to reduce the amount of pins on my boards ~  

Last week I let you know that I would like to make one of these Avocado Desserts. I chose to make the brownies. It's not totally vegan, because there's eggs in it, but I'm not a vegan anyway, just a vegetarian who wants to lose a pound or four, so I thought it would be worth a try.

Actually the avocado brownies more look than taste like brownies, but they were good anyway. To add more taste I sprinkled a lot of pecans on top.

Instead of sugar the recipe uses honey. Maybe you don't know this (I didn't), but there's more calories in honey than in sugar, but because honey is a bit more sweet, you don't need as much to get the same sweetness. In this recipe I think the amount of calories is almost the same for sugar or honey.

Instead of butter the avocados were used and the fats in avocado are much better (so man says) than the fats in butter. So here's the win.  


So, in conclusion: nice to try, the taste was good, but for me it isn't a keeper.
