Chocolate Avocado Lava Cakes

These Chocolate Avocado Lava Cakes are easily prepared in the blender then baked, creating a chocolate molten lava center and tender cake surrounding it. 

These Chocolate Avocado Molten Lava Cakes are infused with green avocados, for a healthy fat that tastes delicious and is easy to make!pinterestI made this recipe a couple years ago, but never got around to sharing it with you guys. I know it can be hard to wrap your mind around the fact that avocados can be used in desserts, but trust me, it’s delicious!

Avocados are great for subbing butter in baking recipes, and while I still used a little bit of butter in this recipe, the avocado does most of the work in keeping this delicious chocolate cake moist and silky.

The best part about these molten lava cakes is that they're mixed up in the blender! So easy!

The best part about this super easy (and totally romantic) dessert recipe is that it’s whipped up in the blender (or food processor), making it the perfect quick and easy dessert for any night of the week!

This recipe stems from my original Chocolate Molten Lava Cake.

Start by blending up your avocados until they’re creamy, then drizzle in some melted butter, chocolate and vanilla extract, followed by your dry ingredients.

Once you have your batter ready, pour it into some well greased ramekins. I use the 4 ounce size.

Chocolate Avocado Molten Lava Cakes use avocados for a healthy fat, and when baked have a silky chocolate center!

The batter will be a little thick, so use the backside of a spoon to smooth out the tops of the dishes and bake for just 10 to 12 minutes, until the tops spring back slightly when pressed.

    I went exactly by the recipe and when the cooking time was up it looked like chocolate pudding. They were by no means done. So I cooked a little longer and it was too long. There was no molten lava at all coming out. Bummer!!!
    1. The filling on these lava cakes is a little thicker than my traditional lava cake, but if you cook them too long they're going to turn into cake (without a lava center). They key to lava cakes it to not over or under cook them. Some ovens are hotter than others too, which is why I give the time frame of 10 to 12 minutes. Always try for the 10 minutes first, then just add an additional 30 seconds to 1 minute and test again. I'm so sorry your first attempt didn't pan out.
