Instructions
For the cookie cups
  1. Preheat oven to 350F; Lightly grease mini muffin tins with coconut oil.
  2. In the bowl of your food processor, combine the avocado, date paste and egg and process until smooth and creamy.
  3. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, combine almond meal, ground hazelnuts, cocoa powder, coconut flour, salt and baking soda, Mix with a whisk until very well combined.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet that are already in the food processor and process on pulse until just incorporated, no more.
  5. Press this dough into 19 mini muffin cups (I know, weird number!) then, using a rounded object, such as the end of a large wooden spoon or small pestle, gingerly press into the center of each “cookie” to make a nice round indentation.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 12 minutes. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then gently remove the cups from the pan; Place them on a cooling rack and let cool completely.
For the cream
  1. Flip your can of coconut milk bottom side up and carefully open it. Transfer the water that’s on the surface to a small bowl. Reserve the cream.
  2. Measure ¼ cup of the water and add that to your small food processor. Add cocoa powder, hazelnut butter, date paste and salt and process until smooth and creamy.
  3. Add reserved chilled coconut cream and resume processing until well incorporated.
  4. Transfer that cream to a piping bag and top each cookie with a nice chocolate-y swirl.
For the drizzle
  1. To make the drizzle, mix cocoa powder, melted coconut oil and honey together in a small mixing bowl until smooth.
  2. Transfer that chocolate sauce into a squeeze bottle. Place chocolate cookie cups on a rack and drizzle chocolate sauce all over them.
  3. Keep refrigerated in an airtight container. These cups will keep for up to a week (and only seem to get better with each passing day…)
