Ingredients

  • BASE:
  • 1/2 c . pumpkin seeds (you can use another nut or seed here if you prefer)
  • 1/2 c . oats (can also be replaced with more nuts or seeds if paleo or grain-free)
  • 10 large , soft dates (I used Medjool)
  • 3 T . cocoa powder
  • 1/4 t . sea salt
  • 1-3 t . water (less if using a 'fattier' nut like walnuts)
  • FILLING:
  • 2 avocados (use a less ripe one to ensure less avocado taste)
  • 4 T . maple syrup
  • 3 T . cocoa powder
  • 1 t . vanilla
  • 1/8 t . sea salt
  • 1 T . coconut oil , melted
  • 10 drops liquid stevia (or another tablespoon of maple syrup)

Instructions

  • BASE:
  • Process the seeds and oats (if using) until they are broken down into a meal consistency.
  • Remove the mix, and add in the dates.
  • Process the dates until they form a ball of date paste.
  • Add back in the seed/oat mix along with the cocoa powder and salt.
  • Process until well-mixed.
  • Add in water as needed until the mix begins to clump a bit.
  • Press the mix into a lightly oiled 7 x 5 inch glass dish (mine is by Pyrex).
  • Place into the refrigerator while you make the filling.
  • FILLING:
  • Process all of the ingredients together until smooth and well combined.
  • Pour atop the base.
  • Chill the dessert until the top has set (it will still be slightly soft).
  • Cut and serve!
