What are your favorite nut-free baked goods

I know the favourites of course, like lemon bread and chocolate chip cookies - but now that I want to bake more often (and we've got a serious nut allergy in the office) - I'm trying to spice up my baked goods somehow...

I like these https://food52.com/blog/2584-cream-cheese-cookies
https://food52.com/blog/3431-anne-dimock-s-straight-up-rhubarb-pie - I also add a teaspoon of Chinese 5 spice
https://food52.com/blog/5926-alice-medrich-s-best-cocoa-brownies - sometimes I add 4 pieces of crumbles bacon to these which is a hit, 2 for the inside and 2 for the top
A basic lemon bar.

Millionaire Bars by Claire Robinson, Five Ingredients or Less
1 stick of butter salted (plus extra for the pans)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup white sugar
Pulse dry ingredients in food processor until combined. Add butter that has been cubed and pulse until pea size. Press into a prepared (buttered and floured) 8 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees about 18-20 minute or until edges are light golden in color. Set aside and let it cool to room temperature.
Caramel Layer
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 T. butter
In a small saucepan, combine ingredients. Over medium/low heat slowly bring the mixture to a boil STIRRING CONSTANTLY until the mixture is thick and amber in color. Be patient, it takes about 15-20 minutes.
Pour over shortbread layer spreading evenly with an offset spatula.
Chocolate Topping
Melt 1/2 pound dark chocolate (I use Trader Joe's) in a glass bowl over simmering water. When melted pour over caramel. Cool at room temperature for 10 minutes and then refrigerate to setup. Cut into squares or bite-sized pieces.

I'd rely on the standard sugar cookie or shortbread.

YUMMY Dark Chocolate Avocado Truffles:
1 Medium avocado
10 oz. dark chocolate chips divided,
2 Tbs coca powder.
Cut and scoop avocado into food processor, smooth.
Roughly chop 1/2 of the choc chips, set aside.
Microwave the rest of the chocolate chips 10 second intervals, sort after each one.
Until completely melted.
Place avocado with the melted chocolate in a bowl, mix with chip chips that were chopped. Refrigerate one hour covered.
Scoop out one tablespoon, roll into ball, repeat, put coca powder in a bowl and roll balls in it.
Keep in fridge. They are really great tasting. Just sweet enough. I also roll them in powdered sugar for more sweetness. ENJOY!
