Banana Avocado Sticky Pudding

Okay, so I was trying to do something with brown bananas other than banana bread and I decided I'd try to make brownies. It didn't really work out. I've never made (or even tasted) a sticky pudding but this is what I imagine the texture to be like, so I'm going to call this a sticky pudding. Maybe an extra half cup of flour would do the trick and turn these into brownies?

And is it just me or does the combination of avocado and banana smell and taste like cherry? My mom agrees with me. I was searching for something cherry in the kitchen and came to the conclusion that the smell could only be coming from the batter. That didn't change as it was baking or when it was done. Maybe we're just a little crazy. You decide if we're right if you decide make them. They were tasty even with the sticky texture, and you can't taste the avocado.

I mashed the avocado and the banana but you could probably puree them. It may change the texture even more though.

I guess I could have taken the sticker off the avocado. Oops.

Makes 15 squares

1/4 cup 2% milk
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 large bananas ripe
1 medium ripe avocado
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a 9x13 glass dish with parchment and grease it up a little.

In a bowl, whisk together the milk, sugar, vanilla and eggs until well mixed. Add the bananass and avocado and mix well again.

Sift the dry ingredients into the wet and stir with a rubber spatula just until combined.

Pour the mix into the prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool before cutting into squares. I got 15 but you could make bigger or smaller squares if you want.
