Chocolate Avocado Bread

Prep Time: 10 min Cooking Time: 50 min


  • ⅔ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup coffee, roast medium
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups almond flour, finely ground
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 ripe avocados, ripe medium
  • ¼ cup agave nectar, organic light
  • ¼ cup brown sugar, light
  • 3 eggs, large
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease or spray a loaf pan and line with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. Using a small mixing bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder, coffee and vanilla extract. In a separate large mixing bowl, sift together the almond flour, baking soda and salt.
  3. Using your food processor, pulse together the avocados, agave and brown sugar. Process until the avocado mixture is smooth and pale green. Add in the chocolate mixture and blend/pulse until well combined. Add in the eggs and pulse 3-5 times to incorporate into the mixture.
  4. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the chocolate avocado mixture into the dry ingredients, mixing in the chocolate chips as well.
  5. Carefully pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan (batter will be a little thick) and bake for about 50 to 60 minutes or until a tester inserted comes out clean. Let the bread cool for at least 20 minutes before removing from the pan, slicing and serving.
