Chia Recipe - chocolate cake with avocado frosting

We love when chefs and home cooks alike, use our products to come up with unique and delicious recipes. Todays recipe was created by Lori Molski, author of the blog PureFreshDaily. Lori has worked in the professional culinary world for 15 years and is a seasoned private natural foods chef and recipe developer in Los Angeles, CA. We asked her to come up with an amazing chia recipe, and boy did she make something fantastic! Thanks again, Lori!


"When I first saw a recipe for Fudgy Avocado Brownies from How Sweet It Is, I knew I HAD TO have the experience of such a flavor combo, but in a gluten free version. The Chia seeds from Chosen Foods, worked as part of the perfect binder (gluten free baked goods always need a binder) once ground down.

You might think it an odd flavor combo, but once you take your first bite, you realize this is a new found comfort food. The result of this cake is beautiful. It’s a soft, moist, pudding-like, almost cheese cake quality that has a deep rich, intense flavor! It is a nutrient loaded dessert, and a somewhat special kind of cake. I believe chocolate, avocado and chia recipes are a new culinary trend that will, very soon, make it’s mark on the world." ~ Lori
