Secret Ingredient Brownies [VIDEO]

The lunch box is not complete without a sweet little treat. If you’ve been sending a piece of fruit all week, switch it up with these good-for-you flourless brownies!

Guess what?

I snuck in an ingredient that’s packed with nutrients and healthy fats, and nobody will know it.

*Happy Dance*

This week for Healthy Food Friday with American Express, let’s make some delicious, fudge-y brownies and get your family to eat some goodness in while we are at it!


Are you ready to take a bite?


 Secret veggie ingredient: avocado.




Sprinkle with organic powered sugar (if you’d like), and serve!


I was selected by American Express to contribute to their Tumblr community. As such I was paid for my services, but all opinions in general and about American express are my own.
