No bake healty gluten free chocolate balls for Valentine's Day!

If you have an avocado, and some cocoa you can make these fast and so healthy and yummy (especially if you use the stevia.)


1 large avocado
2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 teaspoon stevia (to taste) (or 1 tsp additional sugar, again to taste)
2 tsp. powdered sugar (optional)
1 cup old fashioned oats, processed with a food processor into flour ( make sure to use Gluten-Free)


Add parchment paper to a plate or half size baking sheet or if you have a nonstick cookie sheet that will also work.
In a bowl mash the avocado, until smooth. Mix in cocoa powder, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix until well incorporated. Taste test it, to see how much stevia/sugar you want to use adding slowly. Add oat flour and mix well.
Take about a tablespoon size of batter in your hands and roll into a ball and place on prepared baking. The batter will be soft. If you want a more firm batter, add a pinch more rolled oats, but be careful not to get too dry.
Optional: roll the balls in the powdered sugar before placing on the plate. Pretty!
Place the baking sheet in the freezer or refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Once frozen or hardened place your balls in a ziplock freezer bag and store in the freezer or refrigerator and let warm for a few minutes before indulging.


And through today, Valentines Day, my dessert cookbook The Mall Fairies Sweet Tooth Cookbook is FREE. More sweets for your sweetie!
