The holidays are wrapping up and it’s almost time for those New Year’s resolutions that we always attempt to make and not break within the first two weeks.
Do you like to make New Year’s resolutions? I am one of those who totally do but… I have a hard time keeping them when it comes to food. I mean, after a couple of months of parties, treats, and heavy meals, it’s hard to just go cold turkey. Know what I mean?
I get into pretty bad habits when it comes to overindulgence so when it comes to the end of the holidays, I like to try to be a little bit healthier with my choices.
Of course, with my chocolate cravings in full swing, that seems little bit difficult to do.
So by healthier, I don’t mean only eating salads and cutting out all the sweets in my life.
Instead, I mean cutting calories where I can so that I can keep eating the deliciousness that I know and love.
Or substituting things for the not so healthy things like butter and such when it comes to enjoying some of my favorite things…
That’s where I got the idea to make this dark chocolate chip avocado cake.
I’ve made triple chocolate avocado cookies before and those were SO bomb that I had to go for it in an even bigger way with the chocolate and avocado combination.
I had to make a cake.
A dense, rich, indulgent cake that is made with avocado to lighten up the calories but doesn’t do anything to change the amazingness that is chocolate cake.
Then I might have topped it with a dark chocolate glaze… Because dark chocolate is healthy still, right?
If you really want to watch some calories, go ahead and skip the glaze.
The cake still tastes insanely good, you will just be able to shave off a few extra calories without the added indulgence of the glaze.
A glaze that will make you fall to your knees and praise the cake gods because of its chocolate goodness.
Pair a slice of this bad boy with a giant glass of milk and holy crap, you are in a whole other level of heaven.
Happy eating, my chocoholic friends!
