This post brought to you by Avocados from Mexico. All opinions are 100% mine.

The holiday season has arrived and what better way to sweeten up the season than with some tasty treats and desserts! To keep the extra calories off your waistline, a fun trick is to sub some of the fat in your baking recipes with avocados! Your goodies will come out rich, moist and a lot healthier, so you can indulge without as much guilt this holiday season. To make it even sweeter, there is an avocado sweepstakes going on this month, giving away over 500 prizes with a grand prize of $2,500 (details below)!

When using avocados in baked goods, just replace the butter or oil with an equal amount of pureed avocado. It’s that simple. I've replaced some of the fat with fruit purees like mashed banana or applesauce before, like in my homemade granola bars, but here is a another tasty recipe alternative to cut some of the fat in your holiday baking: Avocado Brownies!
Chewy Fudge Avocado Brownies
Ingredients: 
Directions
Make brownies according to directions, substituting your avocado puree for the oil in the recipe. Bake as directed and enjoy!

Try this lower-fat baking trick with your family and see if they can taste the difference. Also, be sure to check out the Avocados from Mexico's Better Baking Sweepstakes by the end of December for a chance to win one of over 500 prizes with a grand prize of $2,500! Imagine how much fun baking stuff you can get with that :D
