¼ cup coconut oil
1 ripe avocado
1 T maple syrup
½ cup carob powder
Pinch sea salt
¾ cup coconut flakes (unsweetened)
¼ cup sesame seeds
Melt the coconut oil on the stove. Remove avocado and mash. Mix in coconut oil and all the ingredients and stir well. Spoon into a glass pan and press flat. Put in the fridge until set and then cut into small bites or squares and serve with fresh blueberries. Yummy!
This recipe was inspired by a recipe of something served at the annual conference of the National Association of Nutrition Professionals. I replaced the cocoa and nibs with carob for those with caffeine issues (some people with anxiety are super-sensitive to the effects of caffeine, even that found in cocoa and chocolate). I also omitted the stevia because it spoils the taste of everything. And I added coconut flakes for crunch and sesame seeds for calcium.
Funny thing….I love avocado! It’s possibly one of my favorite foods (together with eggs, Brussels sprouts, lamb, coconut and paw paw) and I was excited to try it out in this recipe. But it’s totally lost – no hint of avocado! It seems rather a waste! Do let me know what you think.
