  1. Now this one looks like something I will definitely have to try. Nice idea!

  2. Batty, you’re so cool! My 4yo said they look really yummy. We’ll be trying this out- i have to say i’m a little dubious about the banana/avo mixture but will try it! Thanks.

  3. Gret job. I told my non primal friends about this and they looked at me like I had 3 heads. I told some crossfitting primal friends and their mouths starting watering. My crossfitting primal friends are the smart ones.

  4. These look awesome Batty, I’m definitely going to try it!

  5. Thanks so much for this recipe! I never would of thought of this combination. I’m going to try this Friday night for our family dessert night. I hope you don’t mind, I linked to this post, and posted this video on my blog so I would remember it.

    Thanks MDA for all your info!

  6. Just made these as a celebration treat tonight for my hubby. They were SO EASY to make, and so fast!
    My only issues were- make sure you use something to grease your pan- the cake was very difficult to get unstuck! DON’T add vanilla to the filling. I did just for kicks, and it left a weird aftertaste. 🙁 And lastly, in the future I will add something like a dab of honey or 1 date to the cake mixture, as it needed a little more than the banana to balance to bitterness of the cocoa for me. Or maybe my bananas weren’t ripe enough…
    Overall- these turned out fabulous! thanks for a fun recipe! And because of the goofy colors, these would be a fun Halloween treat! 🙂

  7. Since the video no longer seems to exist here’s a copy of the recipe (taken from the website workoutsforhome):


    4 eggs
    1/4 shredded coconut
    2 bananas
    1 avocado
    1/4 cup cocoa powder


    Roll: To the food processor add the coconut, 4 eggs and 1 banana cocoa powder and mix it well.
    Pour the mixture out onto a greased cookie sheet in one thin layer and put in the oven at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes until it puffs up and edges get crispy.
    Remove from oven and cool. Cut crispy edges off. Cut sheet into 6 -8 small rectangles.
    Filling: Add avocado into food processor and add 1 banana. Mix well.
    Add some avocado mixture to the front edge of one of the rolls and roll it up.


    1. Thank you so much!! This is delicious. I miss the video it is very entertaining!
