1. Chocolate Banana Cookies

Ingredients:
2 bananas
1 cup oats
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons cacao powder

Method:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Peel and thoroughly mash the bananas. Add the oats, maple syrup, and cacao powder. Stir until everything is combined.
Spoon the mixture out into cookie-sized dollops on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 20 minutes.

2. Avocado Chocolate Brownies

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons flax meal
2 Hass avocados
300 grams dark chocolate (chopped or chips)
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup cacao powder

Method:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix the flax meal with 6 tablespoons of water and let sit for 10 to 15 minutes. This creates two flax “eggs.”
Scoop the flesh of 2 Hass avocados into a food processor. Add the dark chocolate, coconut flour, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla extract, 1/2 cup cacao powder, and your flax seed eggs.
Process until smooth, then scoop the mixture into a nonstick baking dish. Spread into an even layer.
Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 to 30 minutes.
Take the brownies out and let them cool, then cut into squares.

3. Salted Chocolate Almond Truffles

Ingredients:
10 oz. dark chocolate
½ cup almonds
½ cup canned coconut milk
½ teaspoon sea salt

For the coating:
4 oz. dark chocolate + 1 teaspoon coconut oil
2 tbs cacao powder
1/8 cup almonds
sea salt

Method:
Finely chop the chocolate. Finely chop and (optionally) toast the almonds, then measure out 1/2 cup for the truffles and 1/8 cup for the coating.
Put the dark chocolate in a food processor along with 1/2 cup of almonds, the coconut milk, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Process thoroughly.
Put the chopped chocolate, coconut oil, and cacao powder into a glass bowl. Pour hot water into a larger bowl, then put your glass bowl inside. Mix well, and watch the chocolate melt!
Form the processed mixture into small balls. Put them on a plate, then drizzle with the melted chocolate. Sprinkle with chopped almonds and sea salt.
Put the truffles in the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes, then enjoy!
