This healthier Chocolate Avocado Cake is super chocolatey, perfectly sweet, and nutritionally balanced with healthy fats, whole grains, lots of fiber, and a hit of protein! It's just as rich, and chocolatey as classic chocolate cake, except this is made without the butter, oil, regular white sugar, and bleached flour!

This healthier Chocolate Avocado Cake is rich, chocolatey, and sweet, just like classic chocolate cake, except this version is made without the butter, oil, regular white sugar, and bleached flour!

Ingredients

  • 180g (1½ cups) Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • 96g (½ cup) Truvia Cane Sugar Blend
  • 40g (½ cup) Unsweetened Dutch Processed Cocoa Powder
  • 2 tsp Double-Acting Baking Powder

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and spray an 8” cake pan with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, sift together the dry ingredients.
  • In a blender, add the wet ingredients. Puree until smooth. Pour over the dry ingredients and fold together until fully incorporated.
