Avocadocake

For 16-24 people

Bottom Layer:
3 Tb cocoa/cacoa
1/4 cup oats
1/2 cup dates/raisins (I use a mix of both)
1 Tb agave/maple syrup/honey
1/6 cup sprouted flour (or you can use ground flax seed, or ground nuts, buckwheat, etc.)
1 t vanilla extract
3 Tb coconut oil melted
1/4 shredded coconut (optional)
Handful of walnuts

Middle Layer:
1/4 cup cashew butter
2 Tb agave/maple syrup/honey
1 Tb coconut oil melted with 2 Tb coconut butter
1 avocado
1 banana
1 t vanilla extract
1/8 t turmeric

Top Layer: you could just use melted dark chocolate if you want
3 Tb agave/maple syrup/honey
3 Tb cocoa/cacoa
4 Tb melted coconut oil
1 t vanilla extract
Pinch of salt

For bottom layer, process all ingredients except walnuts until smooth. Add walnuts and process until the walnuts are in smaller pieces, but not totally ground up. It should taste and look like semi-crumbly chocolate coconut cookie. Press into baking pan lined with plastic wrap (or oil, or nothing) and refrigerate.

For middle layer, process all ingredients until smooth. Yes… it should be green. But taste it! Mhhhmmm. Carefully spread over bottom layer, making sure not to mix the layers. Put back in the fridge.

For top layer, blend all ingredients until smooth, adding water if needed. It should be like chocolate sauce. Mmm it tastes so dang good. I could eat a bowl of this.

Carefully pour top layer over other two layers, making sure not to mix them. Put back in the fridge one more time and let chill for 1-2 hours until hard, like real Nanaimo Bars.

Pull out of pan if you lined it with plastic wrap, and cut it into bars.

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup Cranberries (sundried (but not too dry)

Procedure:
Preheat the oven to 350F/180C for 15 minutes.

Line 1 – 12 cup muffin pans with paper liners or grease it with non-stick cooking spray. There will be about 16 muffins / cupcakes for this recipe.

Add all the wet ingredients (mashed apples / milk / vanilla extract, coconut cream) and mix until just combined.

Scoop out the batter with an ice cream scooper among the 12 (16) cavities. About 2/3rd cup of batter per muffin.

Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean.

Transfer the pan to a wire rack to cool.
If using paper liner, you should be able to lift the muffins off the pan after 5 minutes.
Cool it completely on a wire rack before storing them / decorating them / serving them.

These come out real fluffy and delicious !

I found the original recipe at www.Egglesscooking.com, but I have edited it some to my own taste and preferances.

Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies

These lovely chocolate chip cookies are crispy and very tasty.
They are made with Sweetened Condensed milk which works as an egg replacer in this recipe.

Yields: 30 cookies
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooks: 15-20 minutes (depending on your oven – Mine were done after 17 minutes)

Ingredients:
1 Cup Butter (Softened to room temperature)
1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 Cup Sweetened Condensed Milk (1 Can)
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1/4 Cup Cocoa Powder
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder

1.5 Cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips/Chunks (I Used White Chocolate Chips)
Optional Nuts (I Used Chopped Walnuts For 1 Batch)

Procedure:

  • Preheat the oven to 180C  (350F) for 15 minutes.
  • Grease baking sheets or line it with parchment paper.
  • Beat the butter and sugar together in a large bowl until pale and creamy (for 5 minutes).
  • In a separate bowl, sift the flour, cocoa and baking powder and combine well.

  • Pour in the condensed milk, vanilla extract and beat to combine.

  • Stir dry ingredients into the butter mixture, then add the chocolate chips and nuts (if using).
  • Combine it well using a spatula. Don’t beat it.

  • Take a tablespoonful of dough, roll it and flatten it using your fingers.
  • Grease the tablespoon, so that the dough will fall off easily.

  • Bake it for 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown. (The color check can be done if using all purpose flour only. Mine were done at 17 minutes).
  • Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes in the baking sheet itself. Don’t try to remove it. It may look unbaked but it will become hard on the baking sheet itself.
  • After 5-10 minutes, using a spatula transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes:

  1. If you are using a dark (black) color non stick baking sheet, reduce the baking time by 1 or 2 minutes, so that the bottom does not get burnt.
  2. The cookies were crispy, not chewy. So if you want a chewy chocolate chip cookie, I think decreasing the quantity of butter or increasing the all purpose flour would be helpful.

Strawberry Santas

Here is a cute tip to make small and big kids enjoy a healthy snack for christmas and advent.

What do you need?
1 lb large strawberries
1 pkg (8 ounce) cream cheese, softened
3-4 Tbsp powdered sugar (or sugar substitute – to taste)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Rinse the strawberries and cut around the top of the strawberry. Remove the top, (enough for a hat).

Clean out the whole strawberry with a paring knife, if necessary (some of them are hollow already. Prep all of the strawberries and set aside.

In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until creamy. Add cream cheese mix to a piping bag or Ziploc with the corner snipped off. Fill the strawberries with cheesecake mixture.

Once strawberries are filled, top with the ‘hats.’ Decorate according to photo.
If not serving immediately, refrigerate until serving.
