I have puppy fever.

Every time I leave the apartment, I am bombarded with puppies!

Big puppies, little puppies, young puppies, old puppies. (All dogs are puppies to me, no matter their age.)

And it makes me wonder if I should get a puppy…

So today I am crowdsourcing. What do you think? Should I adopt a puppy? I realize they are a big responsibility, but who better to care for a dog than someone who lives in a walking-friendly city and works from home? Ideally, I’d adopt a lab.

A chocolate lab!! It could be my website mascot! Chocolate-Covered Puppy!!
However, a small dog would probably be happier in a small apartment.

Maybe a dachshund?

Anyways…

A lot of you have requested I post more avocado-based recipes.

Today’s superfood avocado fudge bites call for just a few ingredients you might already have on hand, and they are great for humans! Notsomuch for puppies, who should never be fed avocados nor chocolate.

But seeing as I am currently puppy-less, at least this means I need not worry about an evil puppy stealing my food.

These healthy avocado chocolate truffles are super addictive, and so easy to make!

5 Ingredient Avocado Fudge Bites

  • 1/4 cup mashed ripe avocado
  • 6 tbsp coconut butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup or raw agave
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • tiny pinch salt
  • stevia to taste, OR 1 additional tbsp both pure maple syrup and coconut butter

If you have a Magic Bullet, blend all ingredients together until smooth. If you only have a bigger blender, you might wish to double the recipe for smoother blending. You can blend by hand if you absolutely must, but be sure to get the mixture completely smooth. Spread into a small plastic container and freeze until set (at least 3 hours). At this time, you can either scoop into balls with a mini cookie scoop or you can simply cut into fudge. If you want to coat them in chocolate (and why wouldn’t you?!), mix together equal parts cocoa powder, virgin coconut oil, and pure maple syrup until a thin sauce forms. Dip in the fudge balls, then immediately set back in the freezer to harden. Leftovers should be stored in the fridge or freezer for up to three days.

I’m also working on an avocado brownie recipe.  The first three four five six brownie trials still needed work, but I’m happily eating all of the less-than-perfect results. (Perhaps I keep messing up the recipe on purpose? Hmmm…)

    I wouldn’t be without my little Rosie, she’s a Patterdale terrier but thinks she’s a labrador. if you get a rescue pup checkout the breeds before you adopt. Our Rosie expects 4 walks a day a mike each time. it burns off any over indulgence of your yummy recipes. We loved the black bean recipes, must try the strawberry fudge bars. 😉

    I just sampled the batch of 5 ingredient avocado fudge bites before putting it in the freezer. It is yummy! I doubled the recipe, but did not double the maple syrup. I look forward to adding that touch of chocolate later! Thank you for such a creative treat!

  3. Cindy says

    Katie, I clicked on this recipe in hopes of finding something delicious to make and have around for a snack. The calories alone total upwards of 1000 calories but you have less than 3/4 of a cup worth of ingredients when you mix everything together. There is NO WAY you would get 20 normal sized balls out of this recipe. I really wish you would stop being so unrealistic when you post the nutrition facts. At the very least, it’s a gross underestimation of a serving size.

    • Jason Sanford says

      The recipe makes 20 the same size as the ones in the pictures. So not a gross underestimation at all. Ten grams is around the same size as many truffles sold in stores, if you look on the box.

    Hey! LOVE the puppy idea! And these fudge bites would be PERFECT for St. Patrick’s day. Just wondering, do they taste healthy? Thinking of bringing them to my church youth group but I don’t want to if they wouldn’t be sweet. Just warning you labs CHEW EVERYTING so… be aware!

    • Jason Sanford says

      I don’t think they taste healthy at all! But also they do need to stay somewhat cold because of the melty nature of coconut products!

    My sister had a well-trained miniature schnauzer. She was extremely personable and I swear she didn’t know ahe wasn’t human. I loved that dog and even though it wasn’t my dog, 5 years after her passing, I still miss her a lot. If you can find a rescue who’s mostly mini schnauzer, I’d recommend it. Also, I’ve done a little research and affenpinschers seem like a good choice.

    • Jason Sanford says

      We haven’t tried anything else so really can’t say if butter would work or anything else, but be sure to report back if you do try!

    Hi Katie, the recipe says they only last three days in the fridge/freezer. Is that true for the freezer, same as the fridge?

    I live alone, so I’d love to make a batch and keep in the freezer for longer if possible – but I’ll wait until I know they’ll actually last. Thanks!

  7. Tiffanie M says

    Hi Katie! Would you have a suggestion to replace the coconut ingredients in this? My daughter is allergic. She is also DF and egg free due to allergies, so it’s hard sometimes to find options! Lots of vegan things have coconut. TIA!!

  8. Tony says

    I love the part about 3 days in the fridge,,,,, lol lol. Like these would last that long. I can’t wait to make my Vegan grand daughter the fried / baked avocados. I’ll have to change the milk to soy or almond so no biggie. I’ll use almond flour also. We first found fried avocados at our sushi place and they last about 30 seconds amongst the 4 of us. Yours sound fab and I’ll make yours when they get home from a softball tourney after this 4th of July weekend. I’ll shout back with the results. Thanks Papa Tony
