Avocado Chocolate Cake

Ingredients

For the cake:

  • The flesh of 3 avocados
  • 1/2 cup of almond or cashew butter
  • 1/2 cup of raw cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup of maple syrup or 1 cup if you don’t have dates
  • 10 dates
  • 3 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • 1 cup of rice flour (I used brown rice flour)
  • coconut oil to grease the tin
  • Fresh fruit to top (optional)

For the frosting:

  • 1/2 cup of coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup of raw cacao
  • 1/2 cup of maple syrup

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees
  • Combine all the cake ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth
  • Grease a cake tin with coconut oil and bake for 40 minutes or until you pierce with a knife and the knife tip is dry. While the cake is baking in the oven combine the frosting ingredients in a food processor and set aside in the fridge.
  • Allow the cake to cool and add the frosting on top. You can also top it with fresh fruit or flaked almonds. Enjoy!

This is the first time I bake using avocados and I must say, I’m impressed. My little one really enjoyed the cake for breakfast with some strawberries and coconut yogurt on the side.
