I’m really enjoying this series of cooking through my stash – and I’m also enjoying incorporating my eBooks into it as well. This week I’m making Chocomole for you guys – and it’s a recipe directly from my friend Katie over at Kitchen Stewardship. Katie’s recipes are always delicious. I’ve already told you I love her granola bars and her White Bean Pasta…now you can add Chocomole to the list, from the cookbook Healthy Snacks To Go 2nd Edition.
What is Chocomole? It’s pudding made from AVOCADOS! I’m sure you’ve seen it all over Pinterest. I’ve tried a few recipes, but this is HANDS DOWN the best one EVAH! See, all those caps mean that I really mean it. I don’t lie.
Katie is already a whole-foods-recipe-creationist (I learned most of what I know about whole foods from her), so I didn’t really have to tweak this recipe…but I did make it Trim Healthy Mama friendly. And I did add PEANUT BUTTER. Holy cow. Anything with chocolate should include peanut butter. It was the bomb.com.
I really love Healthy Snacks To Go. It’s great to have on hand for those times when I need snacks for trips and other things out of the house. I love that I can fix goodies for Annie from this book and have no reservations about feeding them to her. And she has no reservations about eating them either. Especially those granola bars.
The addition of peanut butter really put this recipe over the top. And I did use stevia instead of honey. In the recipe box, I’ll put Katie’s original recipe and my tweaks. Yummy. I didn’t share with Annie either. I waited until she was in bed to eat it. But that silly Barry was hanging around and wanted a bowl…with some Chocomole in it. What’s THAT about?
This will be a staple around this house for SURE.

Peanut Butter Chocomole
Adapted from Healthy Snacks to Go
- 1 medium avocado
- ¼ cup cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Stevia to taste
- Pinch salt
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- 3 tablespoons almond milk
***Katie’s original recipe calls for: 1 medium avocado, ¼ cup cocoa powder, ¼ cup honey, 1 teaspoon vanilla.***
- Scoop the avocado out of the shell and discard the pit.
- Dump it, along with all the rest of the ingredients, into your food processor.
- Give it a whirl until it’s creamy and smooth. Then stick your finger in and lick, BUT NOT WHEN THE FOOD PROCESSOR IS ON – you gotta make sure you added enough stevia. 😉
- Stick it in the fridge to get cold – or eat it right away from the food processor bowl because you have no shame. Delicious with almonds sprinkled on top!
