Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons lime zest
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mashed avocado (1 1/1 avocado)
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 3/4 cup coconut flakes sweetened or unsweetened based on how sweet you want the bars

Glaze:

  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, lime zest, baking powder and salt.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together egg and buttermilk, whisk in avocado and lime juice until smooth. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix on low - medium speed until combined. Make sure to scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula during the mixing process.
  • Stir in walnuts and coconut flakes.
  • Pour prepared batter into a greased 9x9-inch pan, and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Cool for 10 minutes in pan before transferring onto a wire rack.
  • For the glaze, combine the powdered sugar and lime juice in a small bowl. Whisk well to combine, adding more juice as necessary to get to a smooth and drizzling consistency. Drizzle over the cooled bars, let it stand at room temperature for 10-15 minutes or in the refrigerator (for quicker results) for the glaze to settle, cut and serve.
