Avocado bundt cake

A recipe that I've bookmarked for a while but only managed to try out recently. Instead of p seeds, I've replaced it with chia seeds. Similarly to Edith, I also did not get the green hue from avocado although I tried to puree the avocado just before using it.

The avocado taste is not evident but still the cake is good especially when they are warm and the chia seeds give the cake a slightly crunchy bite. With avocado as fats replacement and chia seeds added, this is definitely a healthier version of cake-without-guilt.
