    I have yet to try avocados in a dessert but I keep seeing it. This looks so yummy, I’m going to have to give it a try now!

    Is there a nice, easy substitution for arrowroot powder? I don’t have any on hand. Failing that, where would I be able to find it?

      You can use about 2 teaspoons of cornstarch instead. Arrowroot is in some grocery stories in the baking aisle or spice aisle or at many health food/ specialty stores (like Whole Foods).

    If your mom actually has an allergic reaction or similar issue with cane sugar, you almost certainly wouldn’t be able to use regular chocolate chips, right? I doubt they’d have any other kind of sugar added to them unless they were a specialty brand. Just a thought!

    Otherwise, looks delish!

      Sunspire makes a vegan cane sugar-free chocolate chip product that they sell at my local health food store:

      Also some brands use beet sugar in their packaged foods. Of course, if I couldn’t find that I could always use unsweetened chocolate and increase the maple syrup in the recipe if needed. Just didn’t think that info was necessary for the post since most people can have sugar and if they can’t, they know what products to buy!

    I wouldn’t have thought something this awesome would be possible either. Looks great, and love that it’s refined sugar free!

    I am so happy to have stumbled on this! My sister is lactose AND gluten intolerant and I have been wracking my brain for a suitable birthday dessert for her…this fits the bill, plus, she LOVES peanut butter :)

    Does the peanut butter flavor come through? Do you think I could increase the PB to make it a bit more of a PB & chocolate torte?

    Thank you!!!

    Always love when avocados are added to dessert. Chocolate avocado pudding is one of my favorite things ever. I’ve never seen a flour-less torte like this. It sounds perfect!

    I can’t do nuts at all. Will the consistency be off if I just skip the nut butter in the filling?

      Hi Vicki – I’m not sure this is the recipe for you then because the crust has 2 cups of nuts that you can’t really substitute anything for. If you just want to make the filling I think it would be okay to skip the nut butter.
