Paleo Chocolate Avocado Cake
Recipe Type: Snack
Author: California Avocado Commission
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • ⅔ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup boiling water
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups finely ground almond flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup dark honey
  • ½ cup coconut palm sugar
  • 2 ripe, medium avocados; peeled, seeded and mashed
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup chocolate chips (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Grease a loaf pan, and line with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, pour boiling water and vanilla extract onto cocoa powder, and whisk to combine; it should be like a slightly runny paste.
  3. In a large bowl, sift almond flour, baking soda and salt.
  4. Add honey, coconut sugar and avocados to the bowl of a food processor. Process until avocado mixture is smooth and pale green.
  5. Add chocolate mixture to the food processor, and blend until well combined.
  6. Whisk eggs, and add them to the food processor; pulse 3–5 times to incorporate into the mixture.
  7. Gently fold chocolate-avocado mixture into the dry ingredients, adding chocolate chips if you’re using them.
  8. Pour batter into your prepared loaf pan and bake 50 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. The cake will be a bit jiggly. Cool the cake for at least 20 minutes before removing from the pan.
