AMAZING healthier cake / bread thingy with chocolate AND avocado (oh yes)

Living Healthy With Chocolate

hey everyone,

once again i’d like to share a recipe with you! original credits definitely go to adriana from Living Healthy With Chocolate who made this absolutely awesome recipe for an avocado chocolate bread.

i decided i HAD to try this but did not want to buy some things, so i substituted some ingredients. honestly, i didn’t measure most of them, too but i mostly sticked to what adriana suggested

AND the result was DELICIOUS but really quite different from the original, so i made my own recipe. it also resulted more in a real cake than in a bread … but oh, i’m so gonna make this again some time soon!! and i really CAN’T believe that there’s no sugar aparty from that tiny bit of vanilla sugar and the one from the chocolate crumbles i used …

so, here comes my healthier cake / bread  thingy recipe ^^  have fun trying out my dears!!

Ingredients
  • 2 avocados, mashed
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 pck vanilla sugar
  • 2 tablespoons low fat butter (i used yoghurt butter)
  • 3 tablespoons raw honey
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup (sliced) almonds
  • 2 cups spelt flour (next time will try with almond flour instead, didn’t have enough)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼- ½ cup raw cacao powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup chocolate crumbles, or chips, whatever you like
Instructions
  1. add the avocado to a food processor and pulse until creamy
  2. add the coconut oil, vanilla, butter, honey and eggs to the avocado and pulse to combine ingredients
  3. mix the almonds with the flour, baking soda, cacao powder, salt and chocolate crumbles in a large bowl
  4. combine wet and dry ingredients and mix gently with a rubber spatula. Do not over mix.
  5. spoon batter into a loaf pan or any cake pan. as the batter is pretty thick anyway it won’t melt away, i actually did it in half of a cake pan … just be sure to spread a little bit of fat (like with a tiny piece of butter) and maybe put some flour on it (for me a little butter worked very well)
  6. preheat oven at 350°F (175°C) and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, approximately 45 minutes
  7. to preserve freshness, place inside an airtight container and store in refrigerator (actually, i did not get to test this – it was eaten right away 😉 )
