Dessert Bars Instructions:

  1. Take a standard pan and line it with parchment paper.
  2. Begin making the bottom layer by mixing the sunflower seeds and coconut flakes and grind them in a food processer until a flour forms.
  3. Add cacao, coconut oil and stevia in with the nut/coconut mixture and blend or mix together.
  4. Press the mixture evenly into the bottom of the lined pan and set aside.
  5. For the filling, put all the ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy.
  6. Transfer the filling to the pan and use a spatula to spread it over the bottom.
  7. Mix the topping ingredients (or melt if using the chocolate bar) until smooth and then pour it over the avocado filling
  8. Put the pan in the freezer for 30 minutes and then transfer the pan to the refrigerator for an additional 2 hours.
  9. Serve chilled and enjoy!

Notes:

  • You can use whatever nut or seed you like for the bottom layers. Mixing in about ½ cup of coconut flakes with either ½ cup of almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds works well.  You can also use a pre-ground nut or seed flour.
  • You can use maple syrup or honey, which is what is on the original recipe, but I changed it to stevia to reduce the sugar.
  • It works best if poured into the pan
  • You can also use grass-fed butter or ghee in replace of the coconut oil or use both coconut oil and butter/ghee.

Dr Jockers Comments:

This is a low-carb, fat burning, ketogenic dessert recipe that could be consumed as a meal due to its powerful nutrients and blood sugar stabilizing effects.  It takes a little work to make this one, but your family will be happy you did!

I changed the original recipe which called for honey and maple syrup for stevia so that it would have a fat burning effect rather than be a high sugar dessert.  If you want to find Megan’s original version with the honey and syrup, you can here.

The combination of avocado, coconut oil and raw cacao provides a rich array of nutrients including magnesium, potassium, anti-oxidants, fiber, trace minerals and medium-chain fats.  The nuts and seeds that are used will add in more fiber and minerals to make this a balanced meal replacement.

Enjoy!
