Have you ever had avocado chocolate bread? This bread recipe is made with buttery avocado and dark chocolate.
This is a great combination because the avocado adds healthy fats and nutrients to this dessert, while the chocolate hides the flavor of the avocado. You are then left with a chocolaty tasting bread that is soft and moist.
I have seen a lot of recipes coming out lately for mousses with the main ingredients being avocado and chocolate, so why not turn these two ingredients into a bread that you can take with you anywhere and enjoy as a snack on the go?
This dessert recipe is not very sweet like a cake and that is why I'm calling it a bread instead. If you want to serve it as a cake, bake it in a round pan and add more sweeter if you like. Either way, I think you will really enjoy this dessert 🙂
Like everything else I make, this Avocado Chocolate Bread is gluten and grain free. It also contains no dairy for those of you that are lactose intolerant.

- Let the bread cool in the pan over a wire rack for about 10 minutes before serving. To preserve freshness, store bread inside an airtight container in the refrigerator.
