Gluten-Free Chocolate Avocado Cake

This cake speaks for itself.  Creamy chocolate, creamy avocado. Not much more to say but YUM.

From a nutritional perspective, it’s a heart healthy cake. I used avocado and olive oil in this recipe which contain a significant amount of monounsaturated fat which help to support and strengthen the cardiovascular system. Raw cacao is rich in the mineral magnesium which helps to relax your heart and you in general. I gave it to the boys for dessert tonight and after doing 20 laps around the house they slipped into dream land faster than usual. I’m going to thank the magnesium for that.

I made it without nuts so it will also be packed in their lunch as a healthy treat tomorrow.

Here’s the recipe:

Gluten-Free Chocolate Avocado Cake


1 cup millet flour (I assume any GF flour would work here)

1/2 cup coconut sugar

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp sea salt

2 tbsp raw cacao powder

1/4 cup raw honey

1 ripe avocado

1/4 cup organic virgin olive oil

2 tbsp plain goat cream cheese

7 tbsp organic unsweetened apple sauce (the amount in the little snack pack cups)

1 organic egg

1/2 cup Camino dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. In a medium bowl add all dry ingredients and whisk to combine
  3. In another medium bowl add all wet ingredients. Use the whisk to break down the avocado and combine with other ingredients until smooth
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and combine
  5. Add dark chocolate chips and stir
  6. Add mix to a baking pan. I used my favourite heart shaped pan, closest to a 10×10 sized pan.
  7. Place on the middle rack of the oven and bake for 25 minutes. Stick a toothpick in it to test  – it’s ready if it comes out dry.
  8. Let cool and enjoy!
