Heidele’s suggestion of eliminating the dates and increasing the maple syrup removes the healthy dates (and their accompanying fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants), and pumps up the very-little-healthful added pure maple sugar. Not something I am going to follow, just to reduce some perceived possible slight graininess.
Secondly, the accompanying video makes no mention of adding coconut oil, nor is there any mention of adding sea salt. Plus, the video processes the avocado in AFTER the rest has been well-processed, but the written instructions say otherwise.
This is not the best presentation of a video-recipe combination that I have ever come across, which is disappointing for an EatingWell project, all things considered.
