Tomorrow (January 27th) is Chocolate Cake Day, apparently. And who doesn't love a bit of chocolate cake?

We like to indulge in the occasional post-WOD slice of cake, but we're a fan of healthier recipes too. 

Here are our top 5 healthy chocolate cake recipes - so you can enjoy tomorrow, without messing up your nutrition plan!



California Avocado's Chocolate Avocado Cake

For anyone interested in health and fitness, avocados are a must. They're linked to loads of health benefits, including improved cardiovascular health, disease prevention, and healthy skin.

As it turns out, they're also the perfect addition to a healthy chocolate cake! The avocado makes this cake super fudgy, and extra delicious.

Green of the Stone Age's Paleo Chocolate Crownies

Georgie, the wonderful recipe developer at GOTSA, has called these her Chocolate Crownies. They're part cake, part brownie.

Like the brownie recipe we shared last year, this one features sweet potatoes. It gives the cake just enough sweetness, without overloading on sugar.

Heidi Hearts' Chocolate Banana Bread

Got a load of ripe bananas that need using up? This is for you!

Thanks to the natural sweetness of the bananas, this recipe doesn't need any extra sweeteners. As a result, this cake is a good shout for anyone trying to keep sugar to a minimum.

It doesn't contain eggs, using chia seeds instead. A good choice for any vegans out there.

Everyday Maven's Chocolate Mug Cake

Mug cakes are amazing. Chuck everything into a mug, put it in the microwave... And voila! You have a cake.

We've tried a few chocolate mug cake recipes over the years, and this is one of the best. If you're in a rush, you can make this in less than 5 minutes.

Green Goddess Life's Raspberry Chocolate Cake Smoothie

Okay, so technically this isn't a cake. But it does taste amazing. 

If you're just not feeling Chocolate Cake Day, or don't have time to do any baking, give this a try instead. In Mel's own words, "think velvety chocolate gateau, blended with juicy raspberries".

This is the healthiest of the bunch - and even features a good dose of greens. Awesome.
