It’s almost St. Patricks!!  Green beer, leprechauns, lots of drunk people, oh, the list goes on and on…  I’ve made so many green things lately, but haven’t had a moment to post everything, so lots of greens coming your way!

I did make these for my people coming to class tomorrow!!  So, I thought I’d share this one with you guys.  I found the original recipe on Rajas Recipes.  She added mint, but I kept mine without the mint flava flave.  I might have eaten 3 already.  So good, so easy, and no bake!

GREEN LAYER INGREDIENTS
  • 1 Hass avocado
  • 1/4 c. honey
  • 6 T. coconut oil, melted
  • 1 1/2 c. shredded coconut
  • 1/8 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • dash of salt
CHOCOLATE LAYER INGREDIENTS
  1. 1/4 c. coconut oil
  2. 2 T. honey
  3. 1/4-1/2 cup of chocolate chips
  4. 1/4 t. vanilla extract
  5. dash of salt
GREEN LAYER INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Line a 9×9 inch baking dish with foil. Place all ingredients in high powered blender (such as a Blendtec or Vitamix) or a food processor. Blend until smooth. (You can puree it if you want, but I like mine to have little flecks of coconut still.) Smooth mixture into prepared dish and stick in the freezer.
CHOCOLATE LAYER INSTRUCTIONS
  1. In small saucepan, melt coconut oil and honey over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients. Pour over chilled bottom layer and return to the freezer for about 15 minutes, or until the chocolate layer is hardened. Remove from foil and cut into bars. Store covered in the freezer.

    I’ve always been curious about baking with avocados! St. Patrick’s day would have been the perfect opportunity to test it out, but I missed the date! Still bookmarking this recipe for the future :). Thanks!
