  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF (177ºC). Add sunflower seeds to a blender or food processor and grind down into a flour.

  2. Mix together the avocado, eggs, apple sauce, vanilla, coconut sugar and coconut oil using a food processor or blender. Alternatively you can mash the avocados really well and mix together the listed ingredients until combined.

  3. Transfer mixture to a bowl and mix in the cacao powder, baking soda and sea salt.

  4. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper and pour in the brownie batter.

    Smooth out the batter using a spatula.

  5. If you choose to use chocolate chips, sprinkle them on top before placing the brownies in the oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes until you can place a toothpick in and it comes out clean.

  6. Once the brownies are all done, remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for few minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool or serve immediately and enjoy!
