Ingredients

MINT LAYER INGREDIENTS
1 Hass avocado
1/4 c. honey
6 T. coconut oil, melted
1 1/2 c. shredded unsweetened coconut
3/8 t. mint extract, or a drop or two of peppermint essential oil
dash of salt
CHOCOLATE LAYER INGREDIENTS
1/4 c. coconut oil
2 T. honey
1/4 c. cocoa powder
1/4 t. vanilla extract
dash of salt


MINT LAYER INSTRUCTIONS


Line a 9×9 inch baking dish with foil


Place all ingredients in high powered blender (such as a Blendtec or Vitamix) or a food processor. Blend until smooth. (You can puree it if you want, but I like mine to have little flecks of coconut still.)


Smooth mixture into prepared dish and stick in the freezer.


CHOCOLATE LAYER INSTRUCTIONS


In small saucepan, melt coconut oil and honey over low heat.


Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients.


Pour over chilled bottom layer and return to the freezer for about 15 minutes, or until the chocolate layer is hardened.


Remove from foil and cut into bars. Store covered in the freezer.
