Ingredients:

 Mint Layer

  • 2  avocados
  • 3/2 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 4 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 3/8 tsp peppermint extract, or 9 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla

Chocolate Layer

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp of salt

Instructions:

 Mint Layer

  1. Line a 9×9 inch baking dish with foil.
  2. Place all ingredients in high powered blender 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.)
  3. Smooth mixture into prepared dish and stick in the freezer.

Chocolate Layer

  1. In small saucepan, melt coconut oil and honey over low heat.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients.
  3. Pour over chilled bottom layer and return to the freezer for about 15 minutes, or until the chocolate layer is hardened.
  4. Remove from foil and cut into bars.
  5. Store covered in the freezer.
