  1. I love avocados and am always looking for new recipes to try. This one seems very healthy too!

  2. This looks so healthy and yummy! I’m going to try it this weekend and see how it turns out. I love using avocado in chocolate desserts, and have been using dates as a sweetener a lot more lately in desserts so I’m excited to try This!

  3. Who doesn’t love Chocolate? I was skeptical to indulge at first, but this is one of my new favorites… And its almost healthy!

  4. Chocolate cakes are my weakness !! Are the kind of detail that tells others .. I love you. Thank you excellent recipe!

  5. I made this tart for a vegan friend’s birthday and everyone enjoyed it (even nonvegans)! She requested me to make it for every function in the future! I found the chocolate flavor to be bold but the avocado brought the level down to the perfect chocolaty flavor.

  6. This comes out super moist which I love in chocolate cake! Plus, I get to use avocados in my dessert and I love avocados in any way I can use them.

  7. Avocados and chocolate perfectly blended together to bring a moist dessert to the table. You will have your friends asking for more, as mines did when I tested this sweet recipe out.

  8. I love desserts and this one will be definitely in my list! A healthy dessert for a sweet tooth like me!

  9. I can’t believe that chocolate cake can be healthy and at the same time so tasty! This is my new favorite cake and I will show this to all my friends!! Thanks!

  10. Utterly perfect. My Grandma used to make this when I was a kid. Super easy to make and a great option when you want an elegant dessert.

  11. Didn’t expect to put avocados in dessert. I was very impressed by the way this turned out

  12. I made this the other day – it was absolutely delicious but I am a little confused about the base. Are the pecans supposed to remain whole or should they be chopped up?

  13. suuuuuper bitter, and not in a delicious dark chocolate way! The filling tasted so disgusting at first! I added 10-12 dates and 2-4 TBSP more coconut milk to the filling and it improved it immensely. It was yummy then, but not quite amazing. Topped it with strawberries and it was a night and day difference! took it from “shoot, don’t know if I’ll ever finish this before it goes bad” to “okay! time to exercise self-restraint!” haha.

  14. yeah you’re going to need to add dates to the filling….because as is it is a nasty bitter/bland filling. I added 12 dates and 2-4 more Tbsp coconut milk (to compensate for the extra thickness), and it improved it dramatically! Top with strawberries and you won’t be able to resist! But without those changes, I wasn’t sure if I’d ever eat it ever again, so be ware!
