Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup Avocado mashed (122g)
  • 1/2 Cup Non-fat Vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 Large egg
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut sugar
  • 3 Tbsp Molasses
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut flour sifted (43g) *Read notes
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp Ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp Ground allspice

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees and line an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper, leaving a small overhang to use as a handle to lift the bars out of the pan.
  2. Add the avocado, Greek yogurt, egg, coconut sugar and molasses into a food processor and blend until well combined, scraping the sides as necessary.
  3. Add in the the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth and combined, scraping down the side as needed. Make sure to get any coconut flour that might stick to the blade of the food processor!
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread out evenly. Let it stand for 5 minutes so the coconut flour begins absorbing the liquid.
  5. Bake until browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes.
  6. Immediately transfer the pan to the refrigerator and let them set until cool COMPLETELY.
  7. Once cooled, slice and DEVOUR!
