Note: Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.


2 cups almond flour

1/2 teaspoon cardamom
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
2 eggs
1 Fresh Avocado, halved, seeded, peeled and mashed


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease an 8×4-inch loaf pan.
  2. In a small bowl, combine almond flour, cocoa, salt, cardamom, baking soda and baking powder; set aside.
  3.  In a large bowl, beat avocado and sugar at medium speed until smooth. While beating, add eggs; beat on high speed until fluffy, about 1 minute.
  4. Fold dry ingredients into avocado mixture until blended; pour batter into to prepared pan. Bake 55 minutes; cool. Cut with sharp serrated knife for best results. Top with a dollop of whipped cream for a decadent treat. One serving=1 slice.
