    The Best Chocolate Avocado Frosting (GF/DF/V/Paleo/AIP)

    This is the best chocolate avocado frosting on the planet. Featured here in my chocolate peanut butter Nutsola tart, but also delicious pipped inside fruit or straight out of a bowl with a spoon (not that I’m speaking from experience.) It took me a long time to make this. I kept thinking it would taste like avocado but you actually can’t taste the avocado at all!! The rich chocolately cacao powder takes over. The avocado makes it creamy. The coconut oil adds a bit of silk and shine. And the agave syrup and vanilla powder give it that true frosting sweetness. Health Benefits of Avocados We all know avocados are healthy. But why?…

    Chocolate Almond Cherry Clusters (GF/DF/Paleo/Vegan)

    When we ran out of cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve (whoopsie!) I whipped up these super simple but incredibly delicious chocolate almond cherry clusters in 5 minutes flat. In fact, I made so many I ended up giving some away as gifts on Christmas Day. Paleo and Vegan Chocolate If you are paleo, be sure to use dark chocoate as your base. I used Guittard Akoma Organic Extra Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips which contain 55% cacao and no dairy. However, they are shared on the same equipment as milk chocolate so there may be traces and are not good for those with an actual milk allergy. Other good options are Equal Exchange…
