Additional 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!
