Nonstick cooking spray
1 Hass avocado, peeled and pitted

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8×8-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

2. In a food processor, process avocado, agave nectar, brown sugar, eggs, and vegetable oil just until smooth.

3. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda.

4. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until all is combined into a batter.

5. Fold most of the chocolate chips and walnuts into the batter, reserving a few to garnish the top.

6. Use a spatula to spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan. Top with remaining chocolate chips and walnuts, pressing them down into the batter.

7. Bake 20-25 minutes, just until the top is set but not firm. Let cool at least 15 minutes before slicing to serve.
