Avocado Oil Chocolate Cake
This Avocado Oil Chocolate Cake recipe was too good not to share! Not one of my creations, rather recipe curtesy of Teresa Cutter, The Healthy Chef sent to me along with a bottle of Grove avocado oil and fresh avocados. How could I resist?
Full of high quality fats and antioxidants! Gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free and so amazingly moist.
I made this recipe for Mother’s Day this year and it was a big hit by everyone!
