Dark Chocolate Chip Avocado Cake

Dark Chocolate Chip Avocado Cake topped with a dark chocolate glaze is an ooey-gooey chocolate cake that’ll make you swoon bite after bite. The decadent chocolate glaze on top will almost make you forget that the cake itself is healthy!

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…

LIKE CAKE.

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!

    Not crazy about mint extract in a cake can I substitute it? Or leave it out?

    • Meghan B. — August 10, 2018 at 8:07 am (#)

      You can totally leave it out! You could substitute it out for almond extract for a more nutty flavor if you wanted, as another option. Enjoy!

    I’m definitely not an avocado fan but this looks too good to pass up. I plan to give it a try soon.
