Nutella Avocado Brownies

We haven’t met and we’ll likely never meet, but that doesn’t stop me from wondering what it would be like.

For me, it always begins with a beautiful smile and I envision you having just that. In fact, I’m smiling right now at the thought of your smile.

Like me, you adore Nutella, that’s got to count for something, right?

I wonder how we’d manage in the kitchen together. I know I’d want to cook for you and I know you’d feel the same way. I guess it would depend on the size of the kitchen. Maybe one is responsible for wine and music while the other is busy cooking away. Or maybe we’re both in the kitchen regardless of its size because it would be fun to find reasons to reach around you and breath in your apple honey shampoo scent.

As much as we share a love of food, we also enjoy fresh air and exercise to burn off all those butter and deep-fried calories. Sure, I like seeing a girl get all dressed up for a fancy night out, but what I enjoy even more is seeing that same girl let her hair down, throw on a t-shirt and a pair of shorts (or capris) and toss a football or frisbee around. Maybe we’ll have a little picnic. Maybe brownies will be our dessert. Maybe the brownies will be made of Nutella and avocado.

Just like us, we’re unique and special in our own way and when we’re united, we become an even better unique, the crazy and awesome kind. Nutella and avocado are both delicious on their own, so why not together? The first bite is definitely Nutella and the lingering taste is absolutely no doubt avocado.

It really works. Believe it.

  1. I’m sold on these brownies and it has nothing to do with the recipe! What a sweetie pie! I hope you are having a good week!

  2. great brownies and fun post to read

  3. I was intrigued with the little bit you shared on Twitter the other night. Avocado in brownies, eh? Nutella, no doubt. But avocado? I may just have to try that because I’m having a hard time imagining it.

    Great post! πŸ™‚

  4. You did it! I am still in awe of your foodie bravery. I want to try the avocado chocolate pudding recipes I have seen so so so bad, but am still slightly terrified.

  5. They look good and I think I even saw a speck of green? I will be trying because I have to say that I’ve eaten a Nutella Avocado Brownie. It’s on the Bucket List! πŸ™‚

    Thanks E!

  6. Very interesting, VERY! I have seen desserts made with avocado, but they never looked appetizing, your brownies are a different story altogether!

  7. How bizarre!! Yes, I’m skeptical… so of course this means I’ll have to try it out sometime.

  8. Baker Street

    What a great post! Its lovely E! and the brownies too! Never baked with avocados, should definitely give it a try. πŸ™‚

  9. Mmmm I want to try these

  10. The brownies look so cute and scrumptious! Love the color and simple ingredients that goes in it.

  11. Orly @yumivore

    I am beyond baffled … how can you possibly be single Ethan!?!? This isn’t new to me but after reading this…Ce n’est pas possible! Ce n’est pas juste! She must be out there..

  12. Are you asking me out on a date? wink wink

  13. Avocado in baked goods is just so wonderful. Not only does it add a lovely earthiness to them, but it also cuts down on the oil/butter needed

    • Tastes Better With Friends

      What I didn’t write was that I had to make a second batch and I cut the butter significantly because the avocados by themselves did the trick!

  14. I love your post. You make me smile!

    Is that a new placemat πŸ˜‰

    Avocado and nutella….hmmm….intriguing for sure! I’ll trust you.

  15. Vanilla Bean Baker

    Avocado never sounded sexier!

  16. Are you really that sweet? I mean, really?
    I’m intrigued by these brownies. I’ll have to try this.

  17. I love the nutritional value in there. A dessert that is actually somewhat healthy? Be still my heart!

  18. I love avocado so much. Obsessed wouldn’t even be too strong of a statement. Brilliant to mix them with my other love, brownies. If I make these I’ll probably eat the whole tray and convince myself it was a healthy decision… you know, give the nutritional content of the avocado.

  19. Amy

    My friend Joanne made something similar a few months ago and I arched my eyebrows in quite the doubtful way, but now with a second ringing endorsement, I might need to finally try them. I do love avocado.

    I used to fantasize about meeting someone who would “do a little dance” with me in the kitchen. But the bright side of Paul being inept near the stove, means I never have to share the pot holders or wonder where my favorite spatula is.

  20. Lora @cakeduchess

    What a sweet post. Now that you put this post out there in the universe, she will magically appear….maybe arriving with a box of avocado Nutella brownies?;). These have to be delicious and I will try soon!

  21. this post brings back some very pleasant memories so thanks for that! but, avacado and brownies… I can’t even imagine it. A friend made the spinach brownies a few weeks ago from the cookbook Seinfeld’s wife wrote on how to get more hidden veggies into your kids… they… ummm… well… Kramer would have been blunt. lol. I might have to try this out just to see…

    This is my favorite post you’ve ever done, seriouly. πŸ™‚ It makes me smile just reading it. Thank you for encouraging me to try the avocado (it deserves a the, haha). I never thought I’d like it. I can’t wait to try these out since I’m Nutella obsessed and now am becoming avocado obsessed. πŸ˜‰ Your brownies look sooo good.

  23. What you’re hearing is the sounds of a million women swooning. Lovely post! I wanted to smell her hair too dammit!!

    These brownies sound amazing.

  24. Well, I love avocado, and I love brownies. Not a fan of nutella, but in brownies? I’d give it a go! Fantastic post.

  25. Adorbs post…as always. And super-cook flavor combo! I’ve been meaning to try Joy the Baker’s vegan avocado choco cake for ages…maybe I’ll make these along with it…

  26. What a way with words…I’m willing to try ANYTHING you suggest!! xoxo

  27. How wonderfully sweet and romantic:) It is going to be one lucky girl that ends up in your kitchen.
    I love your adventurous spirit:) Avocados do not have a strong taste and I can imagine how they can impart a lot of creaminess to brownies.
    Lovely post!

  28. Ethan what a sweet post πŸ™‚ I like the idea of these brownies but perhaps just with chocolate not Nutella. I have had little muffins made with avocados and choc before and they were delish, very moist and you couldn’t taste the green stuff at all!

  29. I can’t wait to try these!

  30. This sounds so delicious! Must try…

  31. Pingback: Delicious links! « Chef Pandita

  32. What a INTERESTING combo. I am left to wonder….

  33. I would love to try these brownies…and I’m thinking you are about to have girls lined up around the block for that picnic!

  34. Not that this has much to do with avocado brownies, but I heard The Pina Colada song in my head the whole time I read this post. I’m showing my age a little, I guess!

    PS Of course, I would make said pina colada with avocado. =D

  35. Robin

    Is there any way these are healthier than regular brownies? I just made them, and I love them. So creamy! My boyfriend liked them too. But no proposal yet… πŸ™‚ Do you happen to have nutritional facts?

    • Tastes Better With Friends

      Glad to hear they were a hit! No, sorry, I don’t have any nutritional facts, but let’s go with that they are healthy brownies πŸ™‚

  36. I still don’t know how I feel about these…In DC we are buying ingredients, finding a kitchen, and making a batch.

  39. I adore Nutella. But nutella and avocado?! How crazy but brilliant! I’ll have to give this a try.
