Ingredients

Ingredients for the Avocado Mixture

  • 1 1/2 Avocados (or 1 3/4 cups)
  • 1/3 cup Applesauce
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Oil, melted
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tbsp Coconut Cream
  • 2 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1/4 cup Almond milk, if needed

Dry Ingredients

  • 2 cups Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour (Bob's Red Mill 1:1 Gluten-Free Baking Flour works best. Can also sub regular flour)
  • 1/2 cup Almond Flour
  • 1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Sugar
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips, plus more for topping the bread

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 bread pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Add the ingredients for the avocado mixture to a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth.
  • In a large bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients (except the chocolate chips). Using a rubber spatula, combine the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients. If the mixture appears too dry, slowly incorporate up to 1/4 cup of almond milk until all the ingredients are fully combined. Keep in mind that the mixture will be very thick.
  • Transfer the batter into the parchment-lined bread pan. Using a spatula, make sure it is evenly spread in the bread pan.
  • Bake for about 60 minutes. Take a toothpick and insert it into the center of the bread. If it comes out clean, the bread is done baking. If it does not, bake for an additional 5 minutes at a time or until the toothpick comes out clean. (Should be no more than an additional 15 minutes if necessary)
  • Remove the bread pan from the oven and place it on a wire rack. Let the bread cool in the bread pan for about 10 minutes before removing from the pan and serving.

Notes

  • When you combine the liquid ingredients and the dry ingredients together, the batter will be thick and dense. Don’t worry! It is supposed to be and when it’s finish baking it will come out so moist, rich, and chocolatey!
  • The secret to this recipe is time! Once in the oven, the avocado chocolate bread needs time to bake. It takes about an hour for this bread to fully bake. The key here is to check the bread at about 60 minutes and insert a toothpick to see if it comes out clean. If it does not, continue to bake the bread for an additional 5 minutes at a time until the toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center.
  • You may want to slice this delicious bread up as soon as it comes out of the oven, but it is best to allow let the bread rest for about 10 minutes in the bread pan once you remove it from the oven —trust me, this chocolate avocado bread is worth the wait!
  • This healthy chocolate bread stores well if kept in an airtight container (like this awesome bread loaf container) and placed in the fridge. You can enjoy this Gluten-Free Chocolate Avocado Bread for up a week!
