Avocado Brownies

As January is now over we can all go back to eating naughty foods, for the few of us that are still trying hard to maintain a more healthy lifestyle these are a great treat. Personally I have been trying as it is a lot harder to shift the weight second time around but food is a big weakness for me, think I may have to go down the exercising route instead.
Although they maybe healthier these brownies are without doubt very moreish.
