Have you ever had avocado bread? This bread is made with buttery avocado goodness and 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 loaf that you can take with you anywhere for a snack?
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.

Avocado Chocolate Bread (Gluten and Grain Free, Dairy Free)
- 1 1/2 cups (202g) avocado
- 3 tablespoons (36g) coconut oil, melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 tablespoons (40g) coconut cream**
- 3 tablespoons (63g) raw honey

- 1/2 cup (58g) pecans
- 2 cups (228g) blanched almond flour
- 1/4 cup (22g) raw cacao powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1/3 cup, plus some more to sprinkle on top semisweet mini chocolate chips, dairy/soy-free brand
- Add the avocado to a food processor and pulse to break it down. Then add the coconut oil, vanilla, coconut cream, honey and eggs, and pulse until smooth.
- Chop the pecans, and add them to a large bowl along with the almond flour, baking soda, cacao powder, salt and chocolate chips.
- Using a rubber spatula, mix the wet and dry ingredients gently. Do not over mix.
- Spoon batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle top with chocolate chips. Note: the batter will be very thick and you will need to spread it across the pan with a spatula.
- Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, approximately 40 to 45 minutes.
- 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.
