Yield 8 brownies
- ½ cup of coconut almond butter

Step #1: Begin by preheating the oven to 325° F
Step #2: Take a normal size loaf pan and grease with coconut oil or line w/parchment paper
Step #3: Combine the nut butter, coconut oil, cacao powder, sweetener and avocado into a blender or food processer and blend up.

Dr Jockers Comments:
The combination of dark chocolate, coconut oil and avocado provides healthy fats, fiber and anti-oxidants to help the body produce good hormones that optimize your metabolism.
Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fat and fat soluble anti-oxidants such as vitamin E and carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin. It is also a great source of fiber, potassium and magnesium.
Chocolate is rich in PEA’s which boost up our endorphins and support dopamine and serotonin production. This combo lifts up our mood and gives us more energy, drive and focus. Chocolate always works best when it is combined with healthy fats like avocado and coconut.
Stevia and monk fruit are our favorite natural sweeteners because they are one hundred times sweeter than sugar and have no effect on blood sugar.
