Avocado Fudge Bars (Paleo, AIP, Vegan)


These three-layer Avocado Fudge Bars are low in sugar but still decadent! A no-bake Paleo and Vegan dessert with simple ingredients and a healthy dose of avocado!

I’m full-on obsessed with these triple layer Avocado Fudge Bars. They’ve been hidden on my blog for years, but I’m rewriting some old favorite recipes and updating photos. I have slightly adjusted the recipe to my nowadays preference, but I still included some AIP tips in the notes.



1. COCONUT-DATE LAYER: a simple no-bake crust made from naturally sweet dates, shredded coconut and a touch of cinnamon, vanilla and sea salt.

2. AVOCADO FUDGE LAYER: ripe avocado is blended with coconut butter and just a tablespoon of honey for a lightly-sweetened, creamy avocado “fudge”

3. CHOCOLATE FUDGE LAYER: simply melt your favorite dark chocolate and thin it out with grass-fed butter or palm shortening to top these bars!


If you’re looking for a low sugar, no-bake treat to have on hand during the week when you want a quick bite, these are it! I like to cut them into 1-inch squares and keep them in the fridge for a snack.

Lastly, if you’re looking for some good quality dark chocolate chips, here are a few of my favorite brands: Equal Exchange, Enjoy Life, and Pascha. If you can’t find dark chocolate chips at your store, you can melt dark chocolate squares in its place. I would use at least 2/3 cup chopped dark chocolate squares in place of the 1/2 cup chocolate chips.







50 Low-Sugar & Sugar-Free AIP Treats!

Nothing divides the Paleo/AIP/Healthy Eating communities more than treats! I personally believe in moderation with everything (except vegetables – you can never have enough of those). The idea of a week without treats sounds frankly boring to me. But I also have lost my taste for anything overly-sweet, which is why you’ll find the majority of my recipes on G & E are either sweetener-free or have 1/4 cup of honey or less for the whole recipe. 


I wanted to create another round-up of recipes after the success of my last one (50 Budget-Friendly AIP Recipes) with the same criteria I hold for my own daily delicacies. Below you will find 50 AIP-compliant low-sugar and sugar-free treats to keep this lifestyle sustainable, delicious, and fun! I guess I’ll  be a responsible adult (boo), and remind you that if you ever feel a physical dependence on treats or find yourself overeating them or craving sugar excessively, it may be time to cut them off for a bit. I find I don’t have this problem as long as I keep them low in sugar though. I think we’re all smart enough to know that 95% of our diets should be of the gut-healing variety, so load up on your bone broth, veggies, seafood, and grassfed meat before diving into a jar of coconut butter!
