Ingredients

  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • ¼ cup (56 grams) coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup (150g) dates
  • 1 cup (104 grams) extra dark or Dutch-process Dutch-process cocoa powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 1½ cup (168 grams) hazelnut meal
  • 2 tablespoons (40 grams) honey
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • the meat of 1 ripe avocado (about 160 grams of meat, my whole avocado was 260 grams)
  • 7 grams ( - ¼ cup loosely packed) fresh mint leaves, cleaned and patted dry
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 - 15 After Eights or Peppermint Patties or something similar

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (176°C)
  2. Mix the first four ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside.In the bowl of your food processor, add the rest of the ingredients except for the chocolate chips and After Eights
  3. Process until very well combined
  4. It should be smooth and creamy, but there will still be little specks of dates
  5. Add the dry mixture and pulse until combined
  6. Take out the blade and stir in the chocolate chips with a spoon
  7. Chill in the refrigerator for at least one hour.Form the dough into about 30 balls and place half of them on a Silpat or piece of parchment paper
  8. Flatten the balls and then break each After Eight in two so that it'll fit in the center of the cookie
  9. Place each After Eight centered on top of each dough disc
  10. Flatten the remaining balls of dough and place on top of the After Eights
  11. Seal the edges so that the After Eights won't ooze out.Bake for 8 minutes and then immediately remove the Silpat or parchment paper from the cookie sheet (with the cookies still on there)
  12. I did this to make sure that they didn't bake even longer.
