Ingredients

  • 2/3 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

  • Preheat oven to 325°. Grease a loaf pan, and line with parchment paper.
  • 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.
  • In a large bowl, sift almond flour, baking soda and salt.
  • Add honey, coconut sugar and avocados to the bowl of a food processor. Process until avocado mixture is smooth and pale green.
  • Add chocolate mixture to the food processor, and blend until well combined.
  • Whisk eggs, and add them to the food processor; pulse 3–5 times to incorporate into the mixture.
  • Gently fold chocolate-avocado mixture into the dry ingredients, adding chocolate chips if you’re using them.
  • 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.
