Chocolate Avocado Cake That Can Actually Help You Lose Weight!

Last updated on

Did you know that there is such a thing as ‘healthy cakes’? These truly healthy cakes are not made with flour, dairy products, nor artificial sweeteners, so beware! And, you need to try this chocolate avocado cake.

I love this chocolate avocado cake since the first time I made it. This cake is organic and surprisingly delicious and actually help you lose weight! Avocados are rich and soft, which makes them a great, nutritious substitute for butter. You can’t taste the avocado when its in the cookie, so don’t freak out!

Avocado The Nutritional Powerhouse

Avocados are a great source of healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. It is an excellent source of folate for cell repairs, and lutein that is helpful for your eye health. The good fats in avocados make it an awesome choice for a ketogenic diet.

Avocados are commonly used to lower cholesterol and also to treat osteoarthritis. They have even been proven to contain cancer-fighting properties! So adding avocados to your cake is probably one of the tastiest ways to get all of these health benefits.

The taste mixes in so well with the other ingredients that you can’t even tell the difference. This cake is also sweetened with honey or maple syrup, instead of refined, white sugar and use no white flour! Try it!

  1. My friend who is sensitive to many foods always happy to eat it. I was disappointed. 3 cups flour was too much, it was dry and never stuck together. I added a bunch of water and mixed it in the pan till it was moist enough, then baked it for additional time. Flavor was ok, but measurements were off.

  2. Can you sub almond flour? That’s what I have on hand and never used it yet.

    This is disgusting. Cant believe you even posted it up. Inedible crumbly and extremely expensive. Perhaps you should check your ingredients and measurements?
