So right after I finished the ~~~> zucchini cake <~~~ I wanted to compare it to a chocolate avocado loaf. Who says dessert has to be bad for you! This recipe is also by Living healthy with chocolate!
You will need:
- 1½ cup avocado, mashed*
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2½ tablespoons coconut cream
- 3 tablespoons raw honey
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup pecans
- 2 cups blanched almond flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ cup raw cacao powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ⅓ cup chocolate chips
Use food processor to cream avocado.
add the coconut oil, vanilla, coconut cream, honey and eggs to the avocado and pulse to combine ingredients
In comparison I think I prefer the Chocolate Zucchini Cake. I also have to keep reminding myself that this is still a treat. I find almond flour to be quite heavy and probably not something I should make baked goods with daily…ha
These are the chocolate chips I used for both loafs. They have cane sugar to sweeten but these are still bittersweet so not overly concerned about it. The other 2 ingredients are cocoa powder and cocoa mass. At first I wasn’t convinced that it would be worth it to buy “special” chocolate chips as of course I know chocolate quality makes a difference but I compared these to the ingredient list on conventional brand of chocolate chip bag and I was blown away! This made my decision very easy! Do some research, compare labels, read ingredients!
