I believe this is my first dessert "recipe of the month!"
Important note, no matter how you alter a dessert e.g. reducing sugar, substituting sugar, substituting fats, increasing protein, etc., it is still a dessert; there is no such thing as a "healthy dessert." That said with some tweaks you can certainly make a less caloric/sugar dense and more satiating/filling indulgence, which can indeed prove helpful.
Ingredients (~ 9 servings)
1 large ripe avocado
2 tsp vanilla
100g dark chocolate or semi sweet baking chocolate
1 heaping cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp of salt
Preheat your oven to 350F
Line an 6-8" square cake pan with parchment paper.
In a food processor, puree your avocado and banana with your eggs and vanilla until smooth.
Melt your chocolate in the microwave and mix with your avocado mixture in the food processor.
Add in your sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt and mix.
If too thick to scoop, add 1 tbsp or so of water.
Scoop your mixture into your pan, spread out evenly.
Bake for ~25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Done! Cool in fridge for ~30 min. for best results
Will last in the fridge for a 4-5 days but best to freeze extras and pull in portions needed.
