Avocado Mint Cream Bars

These are amazing!  If you feed them to someone who doesn't typically like avocado they won't even know it!  These are so decadent yet so healthy.  This recipe is not my own, it's adapted from http://www.eatgood4life.com/avocado-mint-cream-bars/

1 cup of pitted medjool dates
1 cup raw almonds
1 tbsp. raw cocoa powder
2 tbsp. nut butter (almond or cashew is best)

1 avocado pitted and pealed
3 tbsp. coconut oil
3 tbsp. maple syrup
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. peppermint extract

6 tbsp. coconut oil
6 tbsp. raw cocoa powder
4 tbsp. maple syrup


Place the crust ingredients in a food processor and pulse until the mixture starts to clump or stick together. With your fingers or a spatula press evenly into the bottom of an oiled 8x8 baking pan.

Blend the filling ingredients in a food processor until smooth and spread evenly over the crust. Place in the freezer while you prepare the topping.

In a small pot melt the topping ingredients over low heat and pour over the middle layer making sure to spread it evenly.

Freeze bars until firm. To serve let the bars thaw at room temperature for about 20 minutes then cut and serve.  Store in freezer.
