Healthy eating doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself with desserts.
When I first saw this recipe …I fell in love right away! A love at first sight! lol I mean my favorite chocolate cake with avocado? Who would have thought they can go together?
Avocado is very rich and creamy and very versatile. But i didnt know that it can be use as a substitute for butter or oil for baked goodies.
Anyway, so I told myself that I should try it! I was right! It taste heavenly. Eating delicious cake without that guilty feeling.
It’s moist! And everybody just liked it!
So here is the recipe of a delicious Guilt-Free dessert. Plus it’s VEGAN. It’s rich, moist and decadent. This already captured my heart and becomes my favorite vegan cake ever!
