You won’t believe how moist and delicious this double chocolate loaf is. The secret ingredient? Avocado. No, really. Chunky refers to the chopped chocolate in the loaf and Monkey refers to the banana and avocado. So don’t worry, it doesn’t taste like avocado, it tastes like chocolate banana loaf. With a little less saturated fat than a normal loaf recipe. And it’s a great way to use up a soft avocado.
These bars will definitely satisfy your craving for sweet, salty and crunchy. The bottom layer is peanut butter cookie dough that rises around the edges while baking, creating a ledge to hold a thick layer of chocolate peanut butter. If that isn’t decadent enough, Peanut Butter Chocolate Crunch Bars are topped with chopped nuts and salty pretzels that stay crunchy for days.
I should call this “pumpkin” wink wink pie. Because you can actually make this with no pumpkin. At all. Nope, no pumpkin. In fact when I was a kid, likely most of the “pumpkin pie” I had was made from squash. And no one ever knew the difference.
Snickerdoodles are one of those retro cookie recipes from my childhood. They’re a simple basic cookie dough rolled into balls then covered in cinnamon and sugar before baking. What could possibly be better than that?
Sometimes a vintage recipe is the best. In this case, a sweet loaf made with real ingredients like butter, sugar, flour and eggs is a perfect balance for tart rhubarb. You may not know this but rhubarb is actually a vegetable. And, there are a number of varieties grown locally so you may find green or red stalks or a mixture of both. Green stalks don’t mean they aren’t ripe and there’s no difference in the sweetness of either colour so go ahead and use whatever kind you want to make Rhubarb Loaf.
